About Brandi

Hello friends and welcome to my blog! I am a stay at home momma of two sweet boys, an army wife to a handsome Blackhawk pilot, a lover of Jesus, a momtographer of everyday life, and if I didn’t scrap it, then it didn’t happen!

I love ALL things crafty from scrapbooking and card making, to wreaths and home decor.  However, what I am most passionate about is documenting our crazy life! In 2008, I had open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve (it’s a bovine valve now, we call her Bessie).  After surgery, I noticed that my memory wasn’t what it used to be.  And now, after adding two kiddos to my life, I can’t even remember if I had breakfast today!  So the camera is always within reach, ready to capture every silly face and moment of their little lives.  Scrapbooking truly helps me preserve these beautiful memories, and the pages I have created over the past 20 years of scrapbooking are PRICELESS.

I joined the Close to My Heart family in the spring of 2016 and the adventure has been incredible.  I love that CTMH allows me to do what I love, hang out with great friends, support my hobby, and make a little extra vacation money too!
