We love the shirts--thank you!
A heartfelt journey of need and giving…
The Smiling Heart was initially created as a fundraising tool for our Ethiopian adoption. My husband and I were eager to expand our family, but our budget was not so willing. I have always created special gifts for friends and family members and thought I might be able to create for others as well. In the beginning the items listed were very limited but as time has passed, and people have requested custom orders, I have been able to expand my inventory.
I always thought that once we raised enough funds for our adoption that I would close the store because it had fulfilled its purpose. But, creating items for others brings me so much joy. I love having that creative outlet. I put the store on vacation to reflect and realized I really missed it. Creating for others has become a part of my every day.
When I make your items, I think of you as a friend, and make sure you receive something special.
The store consists of me. I think, create, cut, make, dye, sew, photograph, stuff, wrap, and mail every single item in the store…and I love it. As a mom caring for her family, driving to soccer, and helping with homework, this store is the ideal outlet for my creative cravings.
As we are approaching the end of our adoption journey I am happy to have The Smiling Heart to raise money for orphanage donations and travel expenses. I look forward to continuing my relationship with this store and growing new ideas and products.
Sending you happiness and smiles.

Accepted payment methods

If there has been no communication from you/payment, or response to my attempts at communication after 5 days, I will deem this a faulty transaction. I will report this, relist/sell the item and I'll have to leave negative feedback.
Please contact me through Etsy conversations and I will reply as soon as possible.
At this time I am accepting Paypal and credit cards as a method of payment. If this is a huge problem, please email me and maybe we can work something out.
I do offer a discount on shipping for multiple purchases when possible. Some items are too large to ship together.
