YES!

You might know that I have been fighting with inspiration when it comes to my Imbolc alphabet blanket...
Yes, I have been making that for 4 years now... and I haven't come any further except that I know which images I'm going to put at which letters...

Now I know the style, so it's going to be smooth sailing from here on :-)

THIS is the style...

iHanna loves the heart shape [it isn't bad... my favorite figure is boteh... (paisley)]
She suggested you go to heart shape hunting... I didn't find much though...

A couple of fridge magnets; earrings; a collection of hearts and a polymer clay heart made by his little sister.
There's two pics in this "mosaic" I'd like to talk about a little more...
The one in the middle, top, is an earring I found outside several years ago, and it is the heart of our "house angel". I made an angel when we moved here, 11 years ago, of old linen and other scraps. It had hair of wool, but moths have eaten it all up.
Then the collection of hearts... The two bigger white ones I got from my eldest sister. The brass one is from my hubby, bought from Carl Milles Museum. The grey one is not a heart, but a stone, lovely, round, smooth stone, smoothed by nature and time... Behind it is one of my favorite photos... it's a family photo from 1970 I think...

I do love my blog community too! Shai Coggins speaks about what you can do to "let it show". I just participated in One World One Heart "happening", so I have been visiting quite a lot of blogs and letting them know it too... But I'm going to be better with it.
Because people of my blog community are wonderfully generous, open, caring, loving, creative, inspiring, courageous, funny...

I know only a couple of the almost 70.000 people who have visited my blog since April 2006... Right now there's a visitor from Malta, Kuwait and Tunis here... (Hey, you, from Malta... my sisters are coming to Malta in about a month, do you have any suggestions on what to see, where to go and so?) I would very much like to know a little more about you :-)

So, if you are reading this, could you say "hi!" to me?

P.S: I just discovered "Go Make Something"...

Glad you found the Blog Community project interesting. I hope that you'll also join us in other weekly tasks from the 52 Weeks of Blogging Community project.

BTW, did you do that graphic/button ("I Love My Blog Community")? I love it!
