Introducing ... The Canvas Heart

I have to say that I love this shop! What's so special (apart from the unique, gorgeous products) is the story behind The Canvas Heart.

Several years ago Crystal and her husband served in Ethiopia and lived in a turquoise mud home in a small village. Upon returning to the United States, Crystal decided to use her knowledge of the language and culture to make custom art and adoption gifts in Amharic. How comforting for a child that has been adopted from Ethiopia ... to find something from their own language available in their new home!

Below are some of the amazing artwork available -

Also available in The Canvas Heart Etsy shop are translation services (for those that would like Amharic translated into English); photo's from Ethiopia, Egypt and Turkey; and beautiful artwork in English.

You can also read more about The Canvas Heart and Crystal's life in Ethiopia on her blog - The Canvas Heart ... so why not head on over and say "hi"!
