– RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Creative journey since 2006
My journey as a card maker began in December 2006 after my husband and I received a handmade Christmas card from a friend. My love for handmade cards, arts and the desire to scatter joy and kindness to others led me to start a hobby blog (formally Memories Crafter) in early 2015, sharing card-making tips and tutorials and gradually adding on arts & crafts (many that I create with my three young children).
In May 2015, I joined a group of Heart Center nurses at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (a charity mission I continue to present day) to bring comfort to bereaved parents with personalized, handmade sympathy cards and discovered the deep impact a handmade card can have on the babies’ families, helping them to grieve in a healthy way.
Wanting to spread smiles and hope to other heart patients and their families at NCH, on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, with the assistance of several fellow crafters, I launched the first winter-themed holiday card drive right here on my blog and Cards for Little Hearts (formerly Hug a Heart) was founded. To learn more about the card drive and how you can participate, please visit the official website of Cards for Little Hearts.
