Sweet, Sweet Hearts!
Ah, the undeniably commercial allure of Valentine's Day! The red roses, the dark chocolate, the pink champagne!
Okay, so I don't really get Valentine's Day, at all. But, I do get hearts. I love the shape -- round, open, seductive and friendly, with just a couple of sharp points to get your attention. Hearts are pretty, and fun! Can you say the same about rectangles?
I think not!
Of course, not all of my "heart" experiences have been good ones. I remember, all too well, the crushing disappointment I felt upon realizing the thing in my chest was not rounded and pretty like a Valentine's heart.
There I was, all of about 6-years-old, dragging the "H" encyclopedia into my grandmother's room and asking if this illustrated thing was really inside the human body.
Yuck! This was a much greater blow than finding out there's no Santa Claus! (Yes, I really did read encyclopedias -- and dictionaries -- when I was six. The Nerd Effect came early, and easily, to me.)
Now, I make my own pretty (sometimes, pretty unusual) hearts. Valentines Day or not, they'll be available in my shop.

Back In The Saddle
Way back in my last post (12/06) I mentioned taking a blog break and returning in early '07. Well, I'm ba-ack!
Thank you to my friends who have been - ahem! - nudging me to get back to blogging. I've got a lot planned for this year (fingers crossed!) and you'll all end up hearing every excruciating detail. Be afraid -- be very afraid!

I'd like to thank the Academy for honoring me with this award . . .
Oops! That's my Oscars speech! Let me try again --
I'd like to thank those of you who did some of your holiday shopping in my store. I hope you're enjoying your (not-so-)new art work!
A special "Thank you!" to Dr. John and Betty, who added so much unexpected joy to my Christmas.

This week, it's been on the warm side, here. Those of you stuck in the 'big freeze', be careful, cautious, and as warm as possible.
Now, I'm off! (Of course, you already knew that . . . )
EDIT: I guess I was away too long! I've actually overwritten my last post -- d'uh-me!
