Thank you so much for visiting my shop "Hugs4theHeart ".

Everything I create is handcrafted from my HEART.

A little bit about me:

I have always wanted to make a difference in the world. I spent 25 years either in law enforcement or being a legal advocate for battered and abused women and children. Ultimately those doors were closed for health reasons - my heart was broken, I was worn out emotionally, physically and spiritually from seeing only the darker side of life.

I truly believe no matter what happens in life there are diamonds to be found in the pile of mud and muck if one is just willing to look and allow God to do what He does best.

A little bit about me:

I have always wanted to make a difference in the world. I spent 25 years either in law enforcement or being a legal advocate for battered and abused women and children. Ultimately those doors were closed for health reasons - my heart was broken, I was worn out emotionally, physically and spiritually from seeing only the darker side of life.

It wasn't long before my prayers were answered and my life was being transformed. I truly believe no matter what happens in life there are diamonds to be found in the pile of mud and muck if one is just willing to look and allow God to do what He does best. I still want to make a difference in the world - its just coming from a new direction.

I believe this is one of the reasons I love to take something old and broken and find ways to turn it into something beautiful and not just something to be tossed away. This is such a strong metaphor for me and gives my heart wings and joy from within. This is why I call my shop - Hugs4theHeart Designs. I put my whole heart and lots of love into everything I make and I hope all of that shines through. God has altered so many things in my life and He didn't just toss me away - and I hope this encourages others.

I love supporting other Etsy shop owners and using items created by so many talented artists in the items I make.

I am also mom to two amazing and loving daughters, have two adorable grandsons and have a 4.5 pound Pomeranian named Hercules. They are all the loves and joys of my life.

I welcome your comments and feedback at any time.

With smiles and hugs always!!
