After posting 15 new hearts yesterday, you would think I would take a little break from hearts...but no!
Rebecca (aka CraftyMamaBee) on Craftster recently found out that a close relative has been diagnosed with cancer. Rebecca decided to do something similar to the "hope" hearts for Amanda that we did on my other blog (Leslie's Art and Sew) a few months ago--she started crafting a jar of hearts to express her love and hope for healing for her cousin. I wasn't sure if she wanted help, so I didn't jump in until I heard that Wendie (aka wendiek on Craftster) had sent her some hearts! At that point I couldn't sit by any longer--I HAD to make her some hearts! Here they are:
While reading some posts on Craftster yesterday, I came across another person who said her swap group had sent hearts to two people who needed encouragement; she called it a "heart bombing". I LOVE that term so much! I wish I had made it up!! Having a term like that to apply to this activity makes it seem so...official... in a grass-roots kind of way.
I'm very happy to be able to add to Rebecca's jar of hearts, and I'm sending good thoughts and prayers to her cousin; I hope she is healthy again soon.
