CRICUT 360º - Meet the DT - Heather Hoffman

Hello everyone! It is time to meet Heather Hoffman, a super talented cardmaker. She is also a designer for Patches of Pink, and has been a guest designer for Peachy Keen Stamps. We are very excited to have her in our design team.

I am a wife and stay at home, homeschool mom of two little girls age 8 and almost 7. I have been scrapping for several years now, but only recently discovered Cricut, when my mom decided to conspire with my husband and get it for me for my birthday. I used to always say that I couldn't make cards, and my mom would argue with me that I could. Well, since getting my Cricut, I have discovered that I LOVE making cards!!! I always tell my mom that it is her fault! Anyway, I got so addicted to making cards, that I couldn't possibly give them all away. After a relatively unsuccessful attempt to sell them at craft fairs, I prayed about what to do with them. The answer came in the form of a ministry that our family is passionate about called Sister Connection. They work in many avenues with widows and orphans inBurundi, Africa - and the one that my two daughters in particular were touched by, is by building them homes - at a cost of only $600 per house! My cards are now out for donation at our church, and I have done several craft fairs now with far greater success. In a little over a year, I have raised enough for one house, and am about a third of the way to building another one! I love that I can combine my love of this craft, with something that helps others! I am very excited to be a part of this team, and know that it will be a fun and exciting journey - filled with great challenges and adventures!!!
