My Story

Hello my name is Chandel Woody, I am a busy mother of 3 great kids, married to my best friend and a Close to My Heart Consultant. I would like to thank you for visiting my blog and allowing me to share with you.

As a child I loved to cut and paste and color. As I got older my passion for art, and colors never faded. I have always been drawn to creative outlets. As a teenager I loved to doodle all over the place and take tons of pictures, then as an adult I loved to paint, after becoming a mom I loved displaying my family’s photographs all over the walls. In High School I was introduced to scrapbooking and did a couple of albums but, time kept me from really keeping up with it, however once I had kids that all changed. I fell in love with colors, papers, and photographs all over again. Scrapbooking gave me the perfect place to enhance and truly document all of the wonderful memories I have created with my family.

Card design and altered art came shortly after as a way to give personalized gifts to people I cared about and as a way to use up all of the scraps I have from scrapbooking. For me card making and scrapping go hand in hand. I could not image my world not having both!

After years of hunting specials, clipping coupons, and hundreds of hours looking for the best price and quality I came across CTMH. I immediately fell in love with the my acrylix stamps. Then came the love for their paper, inks, and B&T duos patterned paper. I was awestruck with the amazing value and competitive prices. Quickly I found the place I had been searching for. I joined Close to My Heart in January of 2011 so that I could bring the same quality and creativity to you.

The basis of this blog is to share my inspirations, projects, and great deals with you! Feel free to contact me anytime, for any reason! See ya soon!
