A little bit about me…
Hello and welcome! I am Miss. Carrie and I enjoy my days filled with faith, family, LOTS of coffee, & crafts. I have been married to a wonderful man for over 28 years who is devoted to the Awana ministry as a local missionary. With four grown children and a little fur baby by my side, I spend most of my time teaching people, like you, how to create paper crafting projects and how to use the Cricut through my online tutorials and local classes.
Many years later, I was invited to a home decor paper crafting workshop and fell IN-LOVE with the Cricut machine. Soon after, Close to My Heart was giving away a new Cricut collection as the monthly sign-up bonus. Well, I couldn’t pass that up, but I told myself no selling or teaching – just find a way to support my new Cricut paper crafting obsession.
Never did I expect that this would turn into a home business where I get to show YOU how to use your Cricut & paper crafting supplies to make something new. I have been a Close to My Heart Maker since 2014 and have been blessed by every single minute of it. God has truly blessed this business in more ways than I can count. Not only have I had the opportunity to meet wonderful people like you, but I have been able to work at a “job” I love and share my joy creating with others.
Twenty-five years ago, I ventured into the world of paper crafting and began recording family memories into scrapbooks. I enjoyed spending time with friends and creating unique pages. Unfortunately, This was short-lived. In 2002, we lost a loved member of our family unexpectedly. I could no longer look at family photos and had lost my desire to create.

One of the questions I often get asked is “Why Miss. Carrie”? This comes from my days of working in children’s ministry and special education. It was much easier to call me Miss. Carrie than it was to try to say my last name (which most people get wrong). I have such a heart for all children, especially those who need just a little extra care. The name has stuck with me ever since.
