Designer Testimony... My husband and I live in a rural community about an hour outside of DC, where we have a beautiful view of the Shenandoah Mountains. I grew up involved in church, so I was able to hear the gospel from a very young age. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour as a child, and remained active in church through my growing-up years. I graduated from Bible College with a Major in Biblical Studies and Minor in Elementary Education. Later, as an adult, and after wandering away from where I knew I belonged, I recommitted to the decision I made as a child, being very thankful for God's protection and provision during those years. I have always enjoyed crafting projects and being creative. I started cross stitching around junior high school age, and have enjoyed it ever since. My other hobbies include playing piano (sometimes helping out with it in church), cooking and baking, writing, and going for long drives in the country. For many years, I had designed cross stitch patterns for my own stitching, but in 2005, I started Happiness Is HeartMade, and began designing patterns for others to stitch. My inspiration usually comes from the details of daily life. Bible verses or themes that I might have recently heard, seen somewhere, or read can find their way into a pattern. Bible verses we display through needlework are an encouragement and a joy to us as the stitcher, but they can be a testimony and an encouragement to other people, too. I am thankful for Sandra and the encouragement her designs have been to me, and for the opportunity she has given me to share my designs through Joyful Expressions. Christy Ortiz Glory ye in His holy name, let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. 1 Chronicles 16:10
