Mc Ewensville, PA

I am a retired teacher. For 40 years I taught elementary music and did many musicals with my students. Recently I have gone off on a new adventure and found a new love. Photography and scrapbooking with friends. I have six children and eight grandchildren and am busier now than when I taught! I have been making scrapbooks, cards, calendars and digital photobooks for over seven years as well as teaching others to do the same. I am excited about my new venture with Close To My Heart. I love their products and can embrace their philosophy. I love helping others preserve and share the moments in their lives that matter most. I look forward to helping you capture, celebrate and share moments of your life. Join me in this journey and Enjoy Life's Moments!
