vibrant hearts

“Voici mon secret.
Il est très simple: on ne voit bien qu’avec le cÅ“ur.
L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Here is my secret.
It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
 ~ Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince 

Welcome to the month of love. I wasn’t ready to take down all my Christmas lights, so when my friend Cara announced her Hearts of Wax shop I made a purchase right away.

Cara LOVES Valentine’s day, and used to make lovely favors for her coworkers (I was a happy recipient). Her Valentine’s Day enthusiasm is contagious.

“Give others a piece of your heart,
not a piece of your mind.”

As a wonderful designer, her packaging had to be just right.

I pierced holes with a paper piercer to string the hearts up with Stretch Magic. Made of paper and covered in colored wax, the hearts are beautifully translucent.

I added the hearts to my lone Christmas light strand, which helps brighten this grey winter. The wandering Scribble Heart is lifted as well.

It’s such fun to be inspired with other crafters’ creations, especially when they are dear friends. Order your set of hearts today, and tell Cara I sent you. 🙂

“The heart doesn’t speak.
It only feels, and knows, and understands.
And that is enough.”
