day 318

just some coaxing and i had a passable heart!

day 316

the hardest part was taking this picture in the dark.  the easiest was freezing water in a can, then hammering nail holes into it.   it would be fun to do a whole bunch of these for the back patio!

day 315

ah, yes!  the prosciutto heart.  need i say more?

day 314

musing over some of my vintage keys led me to begin wrapping two in wire, adding beads along the way until i achieved this sweet assemblage

day 313

i say it would be completely appropriate for the makers of Whoppers to revise their design in a favor of a heart-shaped spout.  yes i do.

day 312

the remnants of a big november snow..... with a little help (but it was vaguely heart-shaped to begin with)

day 311

i cut out two heart halves from dictionary pages, overlaid them with tissue paper, then curled them into the center

a garlic knot (lovingly altered) from Big Bill's - made all the more delicious with butter melting on top... <click> and consumed

day 305

quite a lot harder to pull off than you might think! 

7.17.2012

day 304

My workbench is our old kitchen countertop.....it was a low creativity day and the soldering iron just begged me to burn a heart into the wood!

day 303

When in a heart-making crisis, mold a tea bag into shape

day 302

ok, so the metal cap didn't exactly come from this fine bottle of wine, but it made for a nicer picture

7.14.2012

day 301

i heard that you can actually consume corn starch packing peanuts, so although i didn't go as far as to ingest my art, i bravely licked this one into shape.  lived to tell the tale!

7.13.2012

day 300

i found actual cotton bolls in a vintage store nearby and was fascinated!  I formed the fluff and it seemed appropriate to place it on a scrap of vintage cotton fabric for its photo shoot

a "why didn't i think of that sooner?" heart - needles in a felted wool ball

day 290

i had to ask a friend for a fake spider  because i refuse to own even pretend ones!

a little bit of strategic carving, but the flames did most of the work
