Hi!  I’m Christina

Welcome to my blog!  Christina Hor Designs is a hobby blog sharing cardmaking tips & tutorials, fun arts & crafts ideas and my passion project…the year-round Cards for Little Hearts card drive, a worldwide effort to scatter joy, hope & encouragement to children living with congenital heart conditions.  I hope to inspire you to join me on this journey.

THERE IS NO BEAUTIFIER OF COMPLEXION, OR FORM, OR BEHAVIOR, LIKE THE WISH TO

scatter joy
– RALPH WALDO EMERSON

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.

When I am not busy running around between kids’ activities, I can be found coloring in my craft-room or with my coffee cup and a good book in beautiful Ohio with my husband Kan (Pediatric Cardiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital), two daughters and son.
