...have I been??? No one knows. Not even me. Body...home. Mind... all over the place, and no place.
I am always tired in January. So, I sleep. Alot. Through half of it, so it seems. Like a hibernation of sorts. When I do wake up (like mid (?) month) it's all good. There's clarity and focus and creativity...and, magic on the horizon, which is VALENTINES DAY! It totally motivates me.
So, this year, like every year I hole up in the studio and create "Hearts". It is a celebration. A once a year, two week departure from my everyday. The focus is very clear. The shape familiar and heartwarming. The aim...to lovingly create a token that symbolizes love. No brainer. I am lucky to have so much love in my life...so lucky.
Each 3 1/2 x 6" wooden heart assemblage is crafted using the beautiful images from back issues of my favorite magazines, collected bits of vintage lace, snippets of ribbons and old world millinery , antique buttons, metal findings, jewelry and all things pretty.
