It is with a heavy heart that due to personal reasons Tonya, the owner of The Heart Desires, has decided to shutter the challenge and blog for the next few months effective immediately.  Tonya will keep us apprised as she's able. The DT has enjoyed providing inspiration to you and we all wish Tonya the very very best.

But, let's end this post with happier news by announcing the winners and honorable mentions of Challenge #17.

The winner is #24 Cris G. Congrats!

The honorable mentions wowed us too. Congratulations in order of entry to #8 Lea L, #11 Dana Kirby, #14 Christina Luna, and #17 Karin Akesdotter!

Thanks to each and every one of our players. You have made this experience so fun and inspiring.  Hopefully we'll be back stronger and better than ever!

  8. Tonya, I hope all is well soon. Some time ago I read this quote on the internet; it was written in Portuguese, but I think I can translate the main idea. Someone wrote: "stones on the way? I grab them all... one day I will build a castle!". Hope this inspire you in some way!
    Thank you so much for being a sweet heart and for inviting me as GD, I really appreciate you and all the DT girls!
    Thanks for picking my project as the winner, and congratulations to all other winners!

  9. Congratulations to Cris and the HM's. Sad to see THD challenge close (just when I was going to enter for the first time!) but taking care of personal matters is always a priority. Hope to see the challenge up and running again! Take care, Tonya! ♥

  10. Awww... sorry to hear that, hope all is well!
