Hi Amanda
I'm so very glad you received all the Hearts!! I'm so touch at your story, I couldn't stop crying. I know how it can be so lonely & be scared & try not to show it. Mine was caught early Thank Goodness! I wish you both the best & take care of each other. I'm very proud to be on Craftster & all the people who have so much love, caring & understanding. I'm proud to be apart of it.  I thank "lesliehappyheart" for making this happen. She is a Happy Heart for sure!!
If you need to talk just PM me.  Best Wishes!!!!!

The Hearts you made into the garland looks great!! Hugs, Sharalee

This is going to put a smile on my face for quite some time!
I've been in a few of Les/sus' swaps and I love them! The positivity that emits of the computer screen is so wonderful!
I think they just draw positive, caring people to join their swaps too.

That is such a lovely thing they put together for you.

I'm posting this after a msg conversation I had with Leslieshappyheart.  I just wanted to let you all know that this project you did for your friend, has encouraged me to do that same!

Thanks for sharing with me!  Here's a link to my project.
