Heather Hoffman - housesbuiltofcards
Hi there! My name is Heather Hoffman, also known as housesbuiltofcards, which is also the name I blog under!
Here is a little about me: I have been married for 13 years to the man of my dreams, and have two sweet daughters age 10 and 9 that I homeschool. I absolutely LOVE making cards – and also enjoy scrapbooking memories of my family. I lived my entire life up until about a year and a half ago in Northwestern Washington State, and now live in a very small town in Wyoming. While we are still adjusting -especially to the cold winters – it has been nothing short of an adventure for us all, with the normal ups and downs of missing our family and friends back home.
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 (I'm sure I'm not the only one with THAT problem!). 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!!! I just finished the money portion of my 4th house, and am continuing to work toward a 5th.
I so love all the beautiful friendships I have gained, and all the wonderful communities I have had the joy to be a part of as a result of this hobby! I had no idea what was in store when I began!
I’m so excited to be joining the fabulous ladies here in the Dirty Dozen!
