About Me/Contact Info

Welcome to my blog.  I am so excited to share my time with you.  I love all of you bloggers out there and really appreciate all you have given me through your sharing.  I would like to do the same for others.  I may not have the experience you have; but I am enthusiastic and I love to learn new things.  I feel the need to create just as much as I need to breathe.  I am sure most of you feel that way or you wouldn't be taking the time to create and to share.   I would appreciate comments and followers.  If you want to comment privately on something or ask a question, feel free to contact me at purpleglocreations (at) socal (dot) rr (dot) com.  I had to change this due to so much spam.

I purchased the Cricut Expression just before Christmas 2011 and the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Collection in February 2012. I fell in love with the cartridge and the stamps from CTMH.   I then saw a website about joining CTMH team in March, 2012 and decided to join.   I mainly wanted to spread the word about the wonderful CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Collection because I loved it so much.   Since that time; CTMH has created several more Cricut Cartridges; but three have retired. Each CTMH cartridge has 700 images and offers so many options for your crafting needs.  I own 45 Cricut Cartridges; but I rarely use any of them; because CTMH cartridges (7) have everything I need on them.

When I joined CTMH; the consultant packet included their paper, ink and many other high quality products and now I am hooked.   I can't imagine not using their products.   Their paper is the perfect weight and cuts easily with my Cricut Explore machine.   I haven't had that with other papers on the market.   I can even tell a difference with their stamp sets and thin cuts.   High quality, easy to use.   Words turn out perfectly.  I would say these things even if I hadn't joined.  I am a very upfront and honest person. 

When I discovered blogland; I was ecstatic from all the love that is shared here.  I have been a Design Team member (DT) for a few groups over the past 5 years.  I am currently the Facebook Coordinator and DT Team Manager for Conie Fong.  I love her digis and can't imagine not being a part of her DT.  I have a few other favorites; so be sure to browse my blog for others that you might recognize.

I am a wife to a wonderful man.  He has one son and I have two sons and a daughter.  My three children have blessed me with eight grandchildren; and two of those granddaughters have blessed me with 3 great grandsons; and a great granddaughter.

I have an RN degree with a Bachelor in Science in Nursing and a Masters in Spiritual Psychology.   My Masters degree is from "University of Santa Monica".  I flew from FL to CA once a month for two years with my friend, Sue.  We had a great time and learned so much about ourselves, each other and people in general. It was a fantastic experience.  We had our own counseling firm in FL several years ago.  

I hope you enjoy my blog.  I look forward to hearing from you and reading your blogs.

  1. I just watched your You Tube video on the Artiste CTMH member. I don't sell anything, I just buy it and love all their products. The girl who signed me up never does anything for anyone. I have no idea whats going on with CTMH. I had to learn everything on my own. So needless to say I'm not happy. I want to thank you for sharing your ideas and projects.

    1. Hi Donna, Call me anytime for questions or help with anything and I will be glad to work with you. I am so sorry you have had a bad experience with your consultant. Most of us are very helpful and will bend over backwards for our customers. The company is fantastic and very customer service oriented. You can always comment on http://www.closetomheart.com and let them know you have had a problem with a particular consultant. I have several videos and plan to make more in the future. I was away on vacation; so didn't see your comment until tonight. Feel free to email me or call anytime. I love teaching and helping others even if they aren't ordering at the time. I am all about customer service. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a fabulous weekend!! Hugs, Gloria

  2. Is this where to leave the comment for your give-away? If so, count me in. I have a friend who is a CTMH demonstrator and get some stuff from her occasionally. They have some nice product.

  3. Gloria,

    Congratulation with your CTMH Anniversary!!!!

  5. Gloria,

I will also send a badge; but the only one I currently have is for CTMH website. I will try to create one soon; or you can use it and just link it to my blog. You have to link it when you set it up.

  9. Hi Gloria! Have you thought about submitting cards to the CTMH challenge, Color My Heart Color Dare? This was set up for CTMH consultants but failed to draw sufficient interest so now it is open to anyone. We'd love to see your projects so check us out! http://colormyheartcolordare.blogspot.com/

    1. Thanks Melanie. I appreciate you letting me know about the CTMH Color challenge. I will try to keep that in mind. Have a great day!
