Every year my niece Jessica sends out adorable, hand-made Valentines, in sort of a self-started tradition. This year, she made lovely heart pins, hand sewn with red felt and lavender thread. I love the way she attached the little safety pin in the back:
I was out in the studio making a slew of tiles for a table top. The table will go into the new guest room and serve as a place for a computer, or to write.
But my mind went back to the cute heart. Which got me thinking.
I had started making hearts out of clay last year. Why not make some big ones, and some middle size ones, and some small ones too? So I started, and now there are a few dozen hearts piling up out there, from two inches to fifteen!
So, after I get done making my table top, I am going to do something with these hearts. I'll glaze them different colors, and do SOMETHING with them. A mosaic? A table top? Who knows?
This is really what I mean by creative structures. To start a day, not really knowing what is going to happen and create something out of your hands, with the help of inspiration from those around you.
This is a clear case of spreading the love!
