Welcome to the Coop

Hi I’m Tracey, 53 years young as of last month!  I’m a mom, wife and grandma in that order.


I’ve been papercrafting for nearly 29 years when I was invited to my first D.O.T.S. party.  I was introduced to glossy cardstock & rainbow ink pads and it was love at first sight.  I still own my first stamp (wood mounted) I will share it in another story.
I started scrapbooking a couple of years later and like most mom’s still haven’t finished my son’s childhood album (I’m close).  I’ve found that I like the smaller specialty size albums the most, but I still scrapbook 12 x 12 today.
In 2005 I decided to join Close to my Heart as an Independent Consultant.  I hit the ground running and haven’t looked back.
I love sharing my passion of hand-stamped cards whether it be by teaching a class online, in person or just brightening someone’s mail box! 
I’m glad you’ve decided to join me here, I hope you’ll be inspired by something I share.
