Cupid Strikes! Collage Pendant GIVEAWAY!

Valentine's Day, it's my favorite holiday. I adore the Season of Love! But not in a Hollywood movie kind of way. Sugary sweet love songs and romance novels, nah, not for me. All the pink and red, my two favorite colors, that has something to do with it. As well as my love of almost any kind of heart, and memories of messy, sappy Valentines I fashioned by hand as a child. I always heaped on the glitter and glue, and made them with all the love and care I could muster. Valentines created by kiddos, there's nothing better. My daughter gave me one she made in kindergarten this week, be still my heart. The first one she made me at age 3 will forever hang proudly in a frame on my kitchen wall. Maybe that's what I love most about Valentine’s Day, the notion of remembering those we hold most dear. Oh, and all the chocolate, that doesn’t hurt either.

I was very honored to be contacted by Robin this morning, who writes a great blog, Robin's Nest. She searches for and writes about cool art she finds on the web.  She was kind enough to feature a couple of my things in a post this week, and WOW!  I am so touched.  Thanks so much, Robin!  Check out her blog, it's a lot of fun! 

I have been having fun making Valentine-inspired gifts in my art room this week. These heart collages would be great for a friend, daughter, or sweetheart. They are also suitable to leave out year-round. Check them out at

In honor of my favorite holiday, I'm introducing my first-ever blog giveaway! I will be giving away a watch face collage pendant, attached to pearls and a sterling silver link chain. To enter, just leave a comment on this blog anytime before V-day. Be sure to leave your name and email address so I can contact you in case you are the lucky winner. I will draw the winning name using a number generator on February 14th!
