My Story

Stefani Ewing - CTMH consultant

Hi!  I’m so glad you could stop by.  My name is Stefani Ewing, and I have the best jobs ever.  I am a consultant for Close to My Heart and a teacher.  I just love teaching.  Students get the brightest smiles when the “get it” and a difficult idea, task, or technique clicks.  In between these jobs, I scrap book my fiance’s photos (he’s into photography) and read way too much!  We live in a small town in Northern California with our three kitties.

I fell in love with scrap booking when my mother dragged me to my first retreat.  I was reluctant because I am fairly busy with my full time teaching job and I am not “artsy.”  I still cannot draw to save my life.  She convinced me that scrap booking was different.  I could be creative without actually having to draw.  I promptly purchased a paper trimmer since I cannot cut a straight line any better than I can draw one.  In fact, I purchased several tools at that retreat and met some great people.  I had so much fun that I suggested a mother daughter trip to the next retreat.  I needed to go to that retreat because I was still only working on scrap books at retreats.

Fast forward about a year. . . I needed a birthday card and decided to pull out the Cricut machine (more on that wonderful device later) to see what it could do.  At that moment, my love of card making was born.  I now have an embarrassingly large collection of Cricut cartridges, papers, layout ideas, and all that stuff that crazy crafters collect!  Once I was hooked on cards, I had to purchase stamps and even more paper, which led me to Close to My Heart – they have the BEST stamps and inks.

Since I don’t do anything part way, I decided to go all out with my new crafting hobby.  I became a consutlant and joined a wonderful team; I recently attended the Close To My Heart convention and had a great time getting to know the fabulous ladies on my team!  Next year’s convention is already on my calendar!

Now, it’s my job to create beautiful artwork, find new ways to use the wonderful materials from Close to My Heart, and teach others how to unleash their creativity.  I’m honored to have the opportunity to meet great people every day and show other non-artsy people that they are still creative.  Did I mention that I also get to help people realize their dreams and go into business for themselves.  Working as a consultant is the best job ever!

I LOVE creating and helping others find and exercise their creativity.  I enjoy going out to in home gatherings, workshops, classes, and monthly clubs.  Feel free to contact me if you’d like info on hosting a home gathering (gather some friends to create with you), attending a class, or joining a club.  You can even have a virtual party and earn hostess rewards all online. And I have virtual monthly projects and classes!

I am currently leading a growing team, so I have time to support all of my team members.  I am a member of a fabulous team and you will also have access to my director’s expertise.  I woul love for you to join me!

Join Close To My Heart for fun, friends, creativity, and money
