Exciting new opportunity

I'm really excited to be starting as a Close to my Heart independent consultant! I've received my starter kit, and even my first order, so now it's time to play. As I'm very busy with family matters in the next few weeks, I can't hold the open house I have planned just yet, but hope to invite all my Canberra friends to come along and view these great products in September. In the meantime though, I invite you to check out the products on my website here

If any of you are impatient to see the products "in real life" before my open house, just send me an email or give me a ring and I'd be happy to arrange a time to show you. Here's a great video about the company for you to watch too. 

I look forward to catching up with you next month, or maybe even before then!

Till next time, happy days!

Close to my Heart

In mid July I went up to Sydney with a group of ladies to the Sydney launch of Close to My Heart stamping and scrapbooking company into Australia. We had so much fun! Several people from Close to my Heart in the US came to Australia (and New Zealand!) to introduce the company and it's products to new and potential consultants. As well as learning about the business opportunities we got to play and made a cute little Thank You card as well as a two page layout. I couldn't wait to get home to add some photos to my page.

So, the next day I signed up to become a consultant and now my Close to my Heart journey is about to begin.

My kit!
My kit has arrived and I'm currently drooling over the contents and trying to work out how best to launch this new venture. I'll be inviting those of you in Canberra to come along to my open house soon! If you're elsewhere in Australia and want to take a look at the products online you can do so by going to my website. As a new company in Australia things are still evolving a little and the website is still changing from time to time.
