Heidi Swapp is a storyteller, craft and decor designer, creative instructor, author, and speaker who firmly believes life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.

She started connecting with audiences worldwide in 2000 through scrapbooking magazines and events, later sharing her passion for memory keeping through blogging, social media, and her signature line of creative products. Her large online audience rallied around the Swapp family when their oldest son, Cory, took his life in 2015 at age 16. Throughout this unbearable ordeal, Heidi has continued to share and connect, becoming an advocate for suicide prevention through community events and the Light the Fight podcast.
