I can't say it enough.....Thank you so much for being part of my Hearts for Hannah fundraiser. You are all part of keeping the memory of Hannah and the other 4 angles alive in such a positive way. With the funds raised, Joining Hearts and Hands will continue the development of Hannah's Hope by building more classrooms and other needed necessities...please check out their site for information and newsletter.  I hope you will remember Hearts for Hannah every June since this is my personal committement to her memory and JH&H's.

For those who missed out on grabbing a Hearts for Hannah, I will have hearts in my Etsy Shop starting tomorrow. For the month of July I will be keeping these hearts at the same low $20.00 price. Come August, they will then be $25.00.

I hope you will consider signing up to recieve my newsletter too! I will keep you up to date on shows that I will be part of, special offers and classes that I hold at my home based studio.  You can find my newsletter sign up along the left side column here on my blog.

The last heart available from this batch is the dark one with the ivory dots. The background color is actually a deep purple but is hard to read on this image. More coming tomorrow!

I'm posting this early since I will be focused on my trunk show for most of the day. I will be posting more hearts tomorrow too!

Hope you get a few of these :) We are close to the goal but now I'd like to exceed it!

Batch #7 has sold out!

Just letting you know that Batch 7 has just sold out. Please come back tomorrow and I will have several more posted. I just know that my goal will be exceeded......if I stay on track like this. What a wonderful way to remember Hannah and benefit Joining Hearts and Hands! You are all proof that there is kindness in this world.

Hearts for Hannah Batch #7

Here is Batch #7. I hope you see something that you need to have! Remember, post here on my blog OR email me the one or 7 that you want. It is first come, first serve. My blog comments do not post automatically. I have to review them first and then they post...just in case you wonder why you don't see your post. It does tell you that your post is awaiting approval but some people may not see this. So, here they are:

More will post tomorrow too! I am posting several hearts each day until the end of June!

Batch #7 & News Coverage too

I've finally reached the end of the week which is the end of the school year for us teachers! My time is becoming my own and I will have plenty of time to get Hearts for Hannah Batches up DAILY until the end of the month. If I sell every heart, every day I will not only meet but exceed my goal!

Today was rather exciting for me! I was interviewed by a local T.V. station regarding Hearts for Hannah. Exciting but also scary....I'm not really comfortable in front of a camera so I'm not sure how it will come out. I'm told it should be on Sunday. Channel 10, another local news station, posted a write up on their website....all good stuff!

Well, Hearts for Hannah batch #7 will post tomorrow mid afternoon. I have several in the kiln now and I think they should be good ones!

Hearts for Hannah Batch #6

Busy week. Sick dog, dance recital for my niece and preparing for my trunk show next week! YIKES....trying to utilize all my time well. So, here is the next batch...batch #6.  The "real" batch number 6 never got posted since it sold out before I could even take pictures. Sweet.

In between preparing for my show this coming weekend, I will be making more hearts today. Batch #7 should get posted tomorrow evening around 6:00 or so. But, if you are a facebook user and have "liked" my facebook business page, you will be notified about an hour before I post them.

New Heart Post on Saturday!

I think the Hearts for Hannah fundraiser is off to a great start! My next post will be on Saturday since I've been busy and work and tired once I get home. But don't worry, tomorrow night I plan on make a number of hearts just for you :)

Since I've had a lot of question of how to purchase these wonderful hearts, I'm going to remind everyone again.
1. Check my blog frequently. I post available hearts every few days. I make what I'm inspired to create and take into consideration what seems to be popular.
2. Leave a comment here on my blog indicating which heart or two that you want. You can also email me your choice at Who ever gets to me first, gets the heart.
3. If your local, we can arrange a time for you to come and pick up the heart. If your out of state, please send an additional 5.00 with your check to cover shipping.
4. ALL proceeds are donated to Joining Hearts and Hands in memory of Hannah. JH&H will receive their check the first week of July.

Its that simple! I certainly hope to be sending one or 10 to you!

More Hannah Hearts....

Another batch to look over. Finally, right? I've been busy at school tye dying t-shirts with first graders, making rainbow cake with second graders and hosting a Parent ARt Day for kindergartners. Along with all that, I've been selling a few of these hearts at school also..

It's kind of hard to see the transparent wings on some of these hearts. I'm just an okay photographer :) Remember, post which one you would like (or email me)........bargin price of $20.00 each......and ALL proceeds go to Joining Hearts and Hands in memory of Hannah. Please consider one or 5. They make great graduation gifts, birthday gifts or simply a great gift that holds a great meaning.

First Batch of Hannah Hearts & Pins

Its always a slow start for me with my Hannah Heart production. I've got a trunk show to prepare for and the end of school going on. Don't get me wrong, I love being busy but I felt it necessary to explain any slowness on my part.

Here is the first batch of hearts. Remember, email me or post a comment here indicating which one you want. First come, first served type of thing. Every other day or so I will post more so you will need to check in often.

Hearts are 20.00. A real bargin! All proceeds will be donated to Joining Hearts and Hands in Hannah's memory. Here are pins my second graders made to sell. Joining Hearts and Hands visited our school in February and students were shocked at the conditions students had to work in. There pins are all one of a kind and made by those little hands with love.

This image isn't very good but I really wanted to post them. They have a shiny surface that is the reason for the glare. Pins are 3.00 each. Same thing......all proceeds will go to JH&H's
