Caring Hearts Project

Just mailed 20 handmade cards to Caring Hearts Project.  The Caring Hearts Project was started by Vera Yates a Paper Crafting Artist in honor of her Mom’s request 8 years ago.  Last year 66,000 handmade cards were made by numerous paper crafters and card makers.  They were distributed to various nursing homes throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom.    As stated by Jennifer McGuire, a wonderful role model for Card Makers, “the holidays are about family, kindness and joy.  During this time, many of the elderly who live in nursing homes feel lonely.  This is a simple gesture that we can do to let them know they are not forgotten.”

I enjoy every minute creating the cards that I make.  It is great to also know that they will make someone’s day a little brighter.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
