I saved this for almost a year before deciding against framing it. I love how it turned out...actually, too bad it did turn out because if it was a reject, I'd have no choice but to keep it. It's in the shop now. SOLD!!
I love conversation hearts with all my heart! I haven't had any this year, but when I do eat them I read every single one. OH MAN...I remember being new in an eighth grade class and on Valentine's day I brought everyone those little paper Valentine's. My friend Michele was in hysterics! I had not been in the classroom for a few years (home schooling aboard our boat) and I guess "big kids" didn't honor the mini paper Valentine and conversation heart tradition. I was mortified (as usual). Though, I have to laugh with kindness at myself. I like that even though I was drinking, smoking and overall acting bad by then, that the night before I was overly concerned about hurting someone's feelings and I kept recounting my Valentines to ensure that not one classmate was excluded. I was actually very sweet now that I look back. :)
