love for Clara

This morning I just found out that one of my favourite designers, Sandi Henderson, gave birth to her much awaited third child, a beautiful little girl she named Clara.  Clara was born May 27th, with a congenital heart defect, pulmonary stenosis with an insufficient tricuspid.
   Family and friends have gathered to support Sandi and her family, with a couple of  fundraisers being set-up to help them out. 
Here's what I read via Pink Fig Designs (by Chelsea Andersen) on Facebook...

"Friends! Several designers have come together for a fundraiser for our friend and fellow designer Sandi Henderson of Portabellopixie. She recently gave birth to a beautiful little girl she named Clara. Clara was born with heart defects and ...has needed open heart surgery and constant hospital care. She was delivered in Seattle Washington and is staying there for another month with her parents to be cared for and watched over, while her brother, sister and extended family patiently wait for her to return home to Montana. Funds raised will be donated to the Henderson family to help with medical costs, future travel to and from Montana to Washington, and to help their family get into a home of their own where they can live together and heal. Your donations will not only give you blessings, but a chance to win some fabulous prizes donated by designers."   
The blog:   for Sandi and Clara has been set up so you can find more details about what is being done to help out and for ways you can help, if you wish.


  1. Thank you for sharing this heart wrenching story. It certainly puts our daily struggles into perspective. My heart and prayers go out to Clara and her family. I'm on my way to check out the blog.

  2. Hi! I want to donate to #loveforclara through the #sewpsychedcarealong on Instagram. Is there a donor site we can send to? Or should we just email Clara's mom a donation through Paypal? Thank you!

  3. Sorry for another message. Are we still able to donate through the Love for Clara blog? It says zero days left but I clicked on the donate button and it looks like we can still donate? Thanks again.


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
