It’s Valentine’s week, and truthfully, Valentine’s Day has never been an event in my life. I received my first and only rose from my husband, as a joke, from a petrol station. Although he is my first ‘admirer’, the romantic in me is constantly disappointed by the practical in him. Sigh.

Although Valentine’s Day can be a bit icky, with satin red hearts on ribbons and pink teddy bears holding I Love You hearts, I love hearts. Hearts have inspired our creative projects this week. Seven days, seven hearts.

Monday 

Crayon hearts.

As usual, I forgot to follow the instructions properly. My little girl helped me shave the crayon wax into baking paper. We (I) ironed it, and the crayon melted. (That bit was per instructions).

What we were meant to do was trace hearts, and then hang. What we did was melt the crayon wax on to craft paper, then traced the hearts. We hung these from a branch.

The effect was pretty, nevertheless.

Sunday

Hearts in a tin

After two parties this weekend, staying over at my parents, and late nights, I was exhausted. So Sunday, Elki chose a heart tin at the market, and we filled it with little hearts.
