The Heart Project – Open your hearts this valentine’s month

Sharing is caring!

theheartproject button
I came out of my blogging break to share some news on a project I am involved with.
The ‘Heart Project’ is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association (AHA) that my blogger friend Jamie (hands on: as we grow) has organized as a gesture to support the AHA in honour of her husband’s 4-year old cousin – Ellie Jo.
It is the combined work of over seventy bloggers from all over the world that resulted in an amazing book that’s packed full of creative Valentine craft ideas, recipes to try, decorations to make and play activities to enjoy. The book includes 100+ projects that are heart-related and kid-friendly.
Two of my Heart crafts are also featured in the Book – Melted crayon hearts & Thumbprint heart bookmark 
By making a donation to the AHA, you will receive this amazing collection of photographed heart projects from bloggers all over the world!
[The eBook has links of almost all of the heart projects to a tutorial on the blog that contributed it to the book! There is a collective index in the back as well for those that are purchasing the printed version to check out each of the blogs in the book.]
A sneak peak of what’s in the book:
