Altered Heart Mini-Book!

Okay, okay, I'll admit it, just in case this looks familiar. This is a re-run from last year, but I thought it appropriate to share again for Valentine's day weekend. It's a little heart-shaped book, and the pages are punched cereal box by a Marvy-Uchida jumbo punch (but not a punch brand I recommend, BTW! In my experience, they break pretty consistently. Go with Paper Shapers!!!)
This pic is clickable to enlarge and see more details of the pages. This little book remains one of my favorite little things that I have around. So I hope you don't mind it's a re-run!

Sadly, I've got nothing new to post... I've been in a pretty ridiculous funk for the last couple weeks. Just been feeling crazy-anxious, and I'm not 100% certain why. I'm trying really hard to push past it, but sometimes it's just tough. I'm tapering off my painkillers, so maybe I'm feeling a touch of withdrawals? No idea. Anyway, maybe I aughta join a swap or something to get inspired. Or catch up on my blogroll, since I'm totally behind. At any rate, life is generally good, just not as crafty as I want. Happy weekend, and have a good Valentine's Day. Go eat some fancy chocolates, I know I will :)

I'm sending you some good wishes for peaceful feelings and also creative inspiration! :) Anxiety is really tough to deal with. I hope it passes soon.

This is gorgeous, I wish I was half as creative as you are even on painkillers :) Really hope the op paid off and that the meds are easier to come off.

Okay, I am absolutely in awe of your creative genius and artistic gift. You adorable inchie heart books, your tree embroidery, your watercolor chick birthday...everything I've seen. I would love if this were all compiled into a book for easier viewing. You know you could make a pdf and sell it on etsy. Katwise another of my favorite etsy seller has a pdf she sells with tips on how she makes her cool sweaters. Check out what she does to get an idea. If you ever do please let me know, I'd definately buy it. I too want to illustrate childrens books. You are so gifted I don't know what is stopping you... unless you are like me with a lot of children and not quite enough energy or hours! :-) We all have different seasons of our lives though I guess. Thank you for sharing your gift of beauty with the world of bloggers. God Bless you. Christine
