The month of ❤LOVE❤ is here - happy February! I am a big fan of hearts, and a lover of pink, so I could not help myself... even though I just recently changed the look of my blog, I've been swept away with all the lovely eye candy I've seen lately. My favorite blogs, and Flickr particularly, have had some truly inspiring photos! So I've thrown caution to the wind and broken free from my male infested, burping, farting, testosterone filled world, in my quest for some good old fashioned Valentine charm. I will continue to post lots of fun things in the usual mix.
I've been experimenting in my photography with a light box. Which sounds very technical considering I really don't have a clue what I'm doing. The soapstone hearts you see here are some of my first experiments. The black & white ones turned out great, which I was extremely happy about - and let's not kid ourselves, I also know it was better luck than good management. I'm still trying to get the turquoise ones right. But I had to post hearts today!
I'm also delighted to give you a report on the Hearts For Haiti fundraiser over on Etsy! When I listed my first item they had already raised about $13,000 for Doctors Without Borders. An item of mine sold last night (yay! thank you!), so I stopped over to check on the fundraising details. I was stunned and touched to see that we have now reached nearly $24,000! Bless the Etsians who started Hearts For Haiti. Bless all those who have donated their items. Bless the Doctors Without Borders organization and ALL those working so diligently in rescue efforts. And bless all of you for your generosity in contributing. Wow, wow, wow ❤
The month of ❤LOVE❤ is off to a very good start!!!
