Valentines from the Heart

I love Valentines, which is pretty surprising considering how much anxiety they caused me as a kid.  It’s sad how early we begin comparing ourselves to others, wondering if we’ll fit the mold we think will buy acceptance. When I’m not careful, that same ridiculousness threatens my creativity now.

A few years ago a magazine article inspired me to make my own valentines, and every year I invite my girlfriends over to “play”.  It’s a lot of fun – seeing all the different ways we create is a good reminder to just be myself.

This is me working with what I have – my own hand as a model. I got a bit of razzing for this… from people who can’t even draw. Which gave us a good laugh as we each merrily created our own brand of perfect.
