The day it all started…

The day it all started…

I had a few store-bought blank wood signs and I spent hours handlettering them just right.  (If you know me well, you know I am a recovering perfectionist.)  A sweet friend from church was hosting an online art auction to help raise funds to bring their daughter home from Ethiopia.  I tentatively handed over three of my creations to her and said "hope these help raise some money for your adoption", while in my mind I was thinking, "I hope someone actually bids on these!" Spoiler alert, the Lord did big things that weekend and those pieces ended up helping to raise over $650 for their adoption!

 The success of the adoption led to an idea to start an online shop and help to raise funds for adopting families year round.  HartDesignCo was born! 

Bringing our story full circle, that same friend, Laura Thigpen, and her husband, Joseph, are adopting again and HartDesignCo is beyond thrilled to continue to be a part of their story and so many others.

In the three years since that first auction, HartDesignCo has been blessed to donate thousands to adopting families and we have even BIGGER plans for the future. Thank YOU for making it all possible and being our biggest supporters.
