Thoughts For Thursday - Love {& some artwork}

Happy Valentine's Day! Today we celebrate Love, whether it be with a significant other, family, or friends. I thought it would be fun to share a couple of neat things...

“When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.”

—Michael Bridge

First, This quote totally relates to scrapbooking and paper crafting to me. We're generally building things with love from our heart. Scrapbooking is "family history keeping", it involves the ones we love, whether they be friends, family, or pets. I love to look at the photos and have cherished memories race through my brain. I always feel immense love when I am creating a piece of art with photos of my loved ones or creating a special papercraft piece of art for someone I adore.

Second, I'd like to share with you some pieces of art that I received in a recent swap, hosted by Susan Culotti. These are 3x3 "pages" that will all go into a 3x3 mini album. The two large altered coasters were created by Susan to be the covers for this Love mini album. A lot of love went into these little guys., each one is DARLING!!!

Click on each photo to view larger and see the individual artist names by each page.

I'm off to get my haircut (and color some gray) this morning. I've been feeling like a woolly mammoth {or was that a fat polar bear... you should see the snow we got last night!!!} When I get back today, I plan on shoveling off my desk and creating some fun projects. With 8 new inches of snow (and it's still coming down), today is going to be another Fat Polar Bear day!

Inky Smiles & Happy Valentine's Day!
