About Me

Welcome to my Blog Crafting With A View”.

My name is Claudia Henderson and I am a crafter by heart. Card making, scrapbooking or any other form of paper crafting, I love them all. For me the most satisfying thing is to know I made someone smile and happy with a handmade gift. Unique, thoughtful and made with love….

Born and raised in Germany, my whole family is still living there. My husband is American and we were pen pals for many years until we decided it is time to meet. A story ala “You’ve got mail”… well and the rest is history. I was a Travel Agent for over 20 years in Germany and got my degree in business before I moved to the United States. I always had a passion for taking photographs. Preserving memories with little embellishments and journaling is priceless to me. All my travels over the years gave me plenty of material to work with, but supply for scrapbooking in Germany was limited. Moving to the states gave me all the opportunities I couldn’t find in Germany… It is a Scrapers dream comes true for me.

After all these years, I still love to browse thru the aisles of a Scrapbook store and get inspired by new products and ideas. 14 years ago I got introduced by a good friend of mine to some wonderful papers and clear stamps, which I found very unique and special (Thanks Heidi). I never heart of Close To My Heart before, but I had to learn more about it. I am an Independent Maker for over 11 years now and I love it every day.

Close To My Heart provides me with a great opportunity to follow creative ideas and earn a little bit of extra income. I am part of the awesome CTMH team which pushes me to new levels in creativity. I love working with my customers during my home gatherings or classes and many customers have become dear friends.

Paper crafting is one of my favorite things to do, but I also love to take pictures, cook and bake, garden and so much more. “Guests are always welcome in our home and I make sure coffee and cake is ready when you come by; just as we like to do this in Germany!”
Please feel free to contact me if you like to know how to test and get free CTMH products or with any other questions you might have.

Always remember….
Art comes from the heart.
So there is never a right way or a wrong way;
there is only YOUR WAY.

Have a wonderful day and keep crafting
