Design Team Member #4 Introduction

Hello there Sparkle and Shine Challenge fans! We are so excited to announce our fourth design team member today! Please join us as we welcome, Heather Hoffman to our team. Here is some information about Heather in her own words. 

My name is Heather, and I blog over at Houses Built of Cards. I have been married for nearly 15 years to the man of my dreams, and have two sweet daughters age 11 and 10 that I homeschool. I absolutely LOVE making cards – and also enjoy scrapbooking memories of my family. I lived my entire life up until about two and a half years ago in Northwestern Washington State, at which time we moved to a very small town in Wyoming – and in an interesting twist, my husband was relocated back to Washington State late last year. We are still unpacking and settling into our new home here. If you aren’t familiar with my blog name, then let me explain a little! When I started card making, I quickly found that I was making WAY more cards than I could possibly use. Thanks in part to my young daughters and something they both cared deeply for, I decided to direct all the proceeds from the sales of my cards to the building of houses for widows and their children in Burundi, Africa, through a ministry called Sister Connection. Building one house is amazingly just $600!!! If you are interested, you can read more about that HERE

Lately when making cards, I have found myself reaching more and more often for sequins as an embellishment – so I was delighted to be invited to join the Sparkle and Shine Design Team! Sequins are such a fun and versatile (not to mention inexpensive!) embellishment – So looking forward to this next year with all these talented ladies!  

Welcome to the team Heather! Check back on Monday for another introduction! Have a great day!
