"I am 31 years old, a Christian, a wife of almost 13 years to my most wonderful husband John, and mother to 5 children - the oldest is 7 and the youngest was just born on May 3rd. My life is everything I ever wanted and more, I am blessed to be a stay at home mom who will start homeschooling in the fall, we live in a tiny town in Upstate New York. I have a very full life and I wouldn't change it for the world!
I started scrapbooking in 2003 after my 1st child was born. I found Close To My Heart in the spring of 2007, signed up in September of 2007 and have loved every minute since! Papercrafting is very addicting and brings me a great deal of joy. I try to create something everyday! People often ask "how in the world do you find time to scrapbook with 5 kids?" Well I tell them it's easy, you always should make time for something you love. Since starting scrapbooking and cardmaking I have also started to sew as well as quilt, I love anything and everything related to homemaking, crafting, cooking, decorating, organizing and even cleaning, I was made to do these things! I am so excited to be able to share with others my love of papercrafts and Close To My Heart."

"A little about me... I’ll try to keep this short... lol
My name is Vicki Wizniuk and I live at Charlie Lake, BC, Canada. I’m a mom to three sweet kids, with my oldest two (visually impaired twins) grown and living on their own now – together, of course, as they are inseparable. My youngest is in Grade 5, so while he’s at school during the day, I’m usually able to find some sanity time to be creative. My husband and I are in the midst of building a new home on the other side of the lake, so that’s been keeping us busy since we broke ground last June, and we are hoping to move in around the end of March. I’ve been a “hobbyist” Consultant with Close To My Heart for 5 ½ years, and I’m so loving it! I LOVE to create with my paper and stamps, and I am honoured to be a guest DT in January for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog! Come and visit me anytime at my blog: http://wizardshangout.blogspot.com/ "
And there you have it - a great group of talent, don't you agree?
Tomorrow is our first challenge of 2011 so be sure to come back and play along!
