I’ve made peace with my heart making… literally… making hearts is a happy, satisfying, low commitment, crafty little project that I can pick up anytime I have a spare moment. The hearts themselves don’t take too long at all… Stringing them together doesn’t take too long either. Blocking them so they sit flat takes a little time and a lot of pins. Photographing them takes a little time… So a garland takes some time… But a Heart? It only takes a moment.
Did I mention that I made my very first sale in my Etsy Shop? Probably rather uncool to be as excited as I am about it… but I am… very excited! I couldn’t think of a sweeter more deserving first customer too… So I hooked up a Teeny Heart Garland to gift with the blanket… in celebration of this exciting occasion.
The shop has a few little heart garlands in it now… in case you’d like to take a look… or not… ’tis fine… maybe hearts aren’t your thing? They are my thing… Just in case you didn’t know… but I’m sure you do. Hearts are precious, delicate and robust all at once… fragile yet tough… to be treasured… honoured… respected… guided… followed… protected… and strung together on a garland and sprinkled around the home… At least that’s what my heart says!
Hope your heart sprinkles a little happiness in your day today.
