National Microcephaly Awareness Day is Around the Corner!

Once again this year, Heather's Heart-Made Gifts is spreading awareness and raising funds for the Foundation for Children with Microcephaly for the up and coming National Microcephaly Awareness Day! September 30th, 2011 is the day to remember the lives that have ended in some way due to Microcephaly and to honor those that live with it everyday! My daughter, Ella Hope is one who is living despite Microcephaly. On this day me and many others are wearing yellow to remember and honor. Please join us in doing so.

Heather's Heart-Made Gifts will donate 10% of proceeds from any baskets, cards or scrap-books created or made for you from September 1st through the 30th. Also, Heather's Heart-Made Gifts will be making a temporary necklace line for the month of September. Get yours soon. More information to come on this necklace. Look for a picture and what else you can get with it. The necklace will be $5. It will most likely have a pendant in the shape of a yellow ribbon and yellow beads. This will be the perfect necklace to add to your yellow ensemble for NMA Day!


~This Summer ~

With two events that didn't accrue as much money for the Foundation for Children with Microcephaly as I had hoped, I have made a decision to mainly just make this an order only business. I have some samples in stock, but if you want cards or baskets, please order. A new kind of basket that I am now doing is a wine basket. I made some up for a benefit Heather's Heart -Made Gifts and may other local companies, vendors and some national chain stores sponsored for Maddie Smith (baby girl of my friend Beth, who had cancer). I made them up with the help of the ladies from Wine Night in Harford County, who donated wine and other items. The baskets were donated to the Silent Auction that we had at the actual event at Mountain Branch Golf Course. See the flyer to the right and the basket below.

~I Not Only Will Creaet Baskets for You; I Will Create a Custom Scrap-book for You! ~
A new development is that I will also make your scrap-book for you! I love scrap-booking and would be happy to create a wonderful memory book for you. Pricing will depend on how big the book is and how many picture and embellishments you want. If I have to develop the pictures and purchase the book and embellishments, a large book will cost $75, including the time it takes for me to put it together. Without developing (you provide me with already developed pictures) a large book will cost approximately $45 - 50. If you already have the supplies and pictures you can save A LOT of money. I will charge $5 an hour. On average it takes me around 4 hours to create a nice scrap-book, so the cost to you will only be $20 +. Other options are available upon request.
