Valentine's is NOT in the Air

We are dedicating this one to the Singles, broken hearted, lonely 

or cynical (like me and my husband). 


Don't get me wrong. I love feeling loved and showing others that I love them, I just find Valentine's Day can sometimes create more hurt then love and costs way too much money. 


So let us inspire you to show case your best examples of hearts "undone", (not the typical lovey romance style), use reds or grays and create something spectacular. 

We open the show with Karon She has out done herself again with this wonderful set. I lover her use of the blossoms and hearts.  

While you're scoping things out also take a special moment to wish Karon well. She will be leaving our team after this post for some quality family time. She will be back on occasion as a guest, and will continue to maintain her blog with her astonishing creations.


Next up, Cathy. (beware I make up grammar and words for this one) I am freaking loving it when people do something unexpected. Cathy created amaziness with, what I refer to as, the starfruit book. then she used the heart brads in a way I never would have thought of. What the....awesome unvalentine!


Shilpa, Shilpa, Shilpa you continue to amaze me. I seriously can't get over how she evolved the daintiest, frilly stamp (heart and flowers) to make this smashed art. It is brilliant. 


Julia, mmmm, the wonderful expression of a divine love affair with coffee. Check out the use of the coffee beans in a charm. Yummy Comfort!
 


Diana leads our encouragement self worth and by using this magnificent canvas to remind everyone to remember who they are and to be proud of it. I just love the wings!


Katelyn bravely shares with us her own personal growth and development to remind us that we need to love and appreciate ourselves.  I loved the subtle background texture she created and I cherish her work with this piece because it evolved from the heart. 


Claudia is just phenomenal with her nailed heart. I can't even express how excited I was about sharing this piece and I am so speechless with what Claudia created.
I have been so impressed with the team. I knew this could be tough but with all of these creations and inspirations, now...
We dare you to join the fun and create your own piece using hearts in a new way, reds, grays or all of the above. 


Congratulations to Julie of Juliz Design Post,  winner of the We are on our way.... Dare.
