Happy Birthday Jeanette – I’m excited for your special day surprise!
Happy Birthday Jeanette!
Happy Birthday to a wonderful woman that has pioneered the Stamping & Scrapbooking industry for the past decade. She started this incredible company called D.O.T.S. (Dozens of Terrific Stamps) and eventually we have come to know it as Close To My Heart. I am ever so proud to be a part of such a wonderful, creative family. <3
I remember going to my very 1st Close To My Heart convention in Salt Lake City, UT back in 2002. After one of the general sessions I was near the stage and Jeanette came up to me. We spoke briefly and it was inspiring enough where I told her that I would be going to the next Convention as a Director. I worked super hard and I did it! :)
Years later, I remember Jeanette coming up to me on one of the Caribbean Cruises I had earned. She said hello to me and then pointed at her lanyard that was hanging around her neck. I didn’t understand what she was trying to say…but she kept pointing to the lanyard that was laying against her chest. I finally looked down at what she was pointing at and realized that Jeanette was giving ME a baby-sized “Sticky Boy” – Woohoo!
It was also FABULOUS to spend a few moments with Jeanette at this past Team Builders Conference. What a wonderful, incredible woman. I hope her birthday is spent surrounded by lots of family/friends and the best birthday cake ever!!
