Founder, Organizer, Creative Artist
Christina Hor (pronounced “HALL”) is a mother of three, a cardmaker, and a self-taught artist who loves to spread joy and kindness to others through handmade cards and arts. Christina’s journey as a card maker began in December 2006 after she and her husband received a handmade Christmas card from a friend. In May 2015, Christina joined a group of Heart Center nurses at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) to bring comfort to bereaved parents with personalized, handmade baby sympathy cards and discovered the deep impact a handmade card can have on the babies’ families, helping them to grieve in a healthy way. Wanting to spread smiles to other heart patients and their families at NCH, on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, with the assistance of several fellow crafters, Christina launched the first winter-themed holiday card drive on her hobby blog, ChristinaHorDesigns and Cards for Little Hearts (formerly known as Hug a Heart) was founded.
Christina resides in Ohio with her husband Kan (Pediatric Cardiologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital), two daughters, son, and Goldendoodle.
