Hi! I’m Stacey; wife, sister, friend and Mother of four little ones: ages 10, 8, 3 and two months. Not only do I LOVE all of the amazing people in my life, but I am also in LOVE with creating my own handmade crafts and of course anything owls. Hence the inspiration for this sites name. I have been scrapbooking and card making for over 20 years. Yes, I started as a toddler, I’m really not that old. LOL Being able to share all of my family memories through the art of scrapbooking is not only something I cherish, but my children do as well. In the past ten years alone I have created 30 + scrapbooks (for myself, my children, gifts for family and friends and even for those that love the joy of owning a scrapbook but don’t have the time or desire to create one themself). My creations have frequently become topics of conversation and bring a wonderful joy to my life. Not to mention that the time spent creating these scrapbook pages is both rewarding, stress reducing and a time for a little girl chat for me. Similarly, I love the look on a persons face (yes men like them too) when opening up one my home made cards. Not only do I have the satisfaction of knowing I made that, but I enjoy the time spent creating cards and it is also a huge cost savings to my family when the average store bought card is now running $5+
This page will be devoted to sharing my creations, providing how to lessons and of course updating you on upcoming classes I will be offering.
Please note: while I do not limit myself to using supplies from any particular supplier (I love them all and use various products from each of them.) I will frequently use a lot of Close To My Heart product (and have been a consultant for the past 8 years). You can view my CTMH website here: staceyhaniff.ctmh.com
