Some out-of-favor polka dots, skimmed with crimson and gold. Then a black-and-white text paper, veiled with crimson. Finally, lots of related circles from all these and more, using a Papertrey die so hoop and circles match. Little messages from tiny Papertrey stamps. Nice break on a quiet afternoon.
Last week, we made Valentines in Assisted Living. Something about all that pink brings out the best in everyone.
Residents made cards. Staff joined in.
"This should go on all day," declared the director.
Cards were made for spouses, children, grandchildren. I talked one woman into making cards for her granddaughters in college. High point of my day.
The week before, I led Heart-Felt Collage at the Arlington Center for the Arts.
So much loving creativity.
And lots of paint.
Big hearts, creative people. A great afternoon.
