Well, first I want to tell you how we came about close to my heart started with a visionary women by the name of jeanette lynton. I met jeanette lynton in nineteen. Oh, gosh. Nineteen ninety two. I was only nineteen years old, but when I met her, I just knew that she had something really special. And what that really special thing was, it was making beautiful, designing decorative stamps. Jeanette herself hand drew all of the stamps. And back then our company, the company that she started, was called dots, dozens of terrific stamps. This's the catalog cover of when I started isn't back just precious acute. So when I saw it, I thought, oh, my gosh, this is this is something I have to be a part of, but little did I know what these beautiful precious stamp designs really meant. So that's what? We're here to talk about two. In two thousand, we started a scrapbook the line jeanette was passionate about. Scrapbooking loved it, did it as a teenager and brought scrapbooking in two dots. We call that line close to my heart. Soon after that, it really took off. So we decided to change the name to close to my heart. And so that's, all encompassing of those paper, crafts and scrap booking and stamping all combined together. Soon after we did close to my heart, we introduced the very first clear stamps through direct cells so that's why we're going to be using today a lot of clear stamps it's so much fun to do and so so easy so you're going to have you have lots of stamps that's they're in front of you and it's going to be so awesome so this is me and jeanette today still working together side by side and it spent such an amazing adventure we've seen this company grow from just being here in the united states to canada and most recently australia and new zealand so it has becoming a global white thing because people have memories and they need to celebrate those memories and how to preserve them and keep them safe right?
