Hi Everyone, Carolyn here. I can hardly believe that I have been with this wonderful company for over 11 years! It seems just like yesterday when I started. I have a hard time seeing every new product and wondering "Who came up with that? I need it!" I am a hobbyist that happened to grow a business! That's right. I LOVE sharing the creative process with others, and helping them share. That's all I do. I have earned several Close to My Heart incentive trips which have been wonderful, and will work on earning more of them in the future. I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up! I would love to share the creative process with you. Have a great day!
