Hi, when Close to My Heart arrived in New Zealand I was in boots and all! It has been a fabulous, creative, fun way to spend my life!!! I love spending day/night sessions with different ladies making creative things, seeing them walk out the door happy with their creation! I have a team of Makers (which you can be part of) called the Wai Knots - and why not - go for it. I offer the following: opportunity to join my team, purchase product, craft - cards, scrapbook, 3D items, retreats, Ladies' Night In. My main supporter (husband Ian) and I went on an incentive trip to Argentina. I have earnt another couple of Incentive trips that covid put a hold on. But, heading to Maui in September. Contact me and let's work out YOUR way!
