“Voici mon secret.
Il est trÃ¨s 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.”
Â ~ Antoine de Saint ExupÃ©ry, The Little PrinceÂ
Welcome to the month of love. I wasnâ€™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 Valentineâ€™s day, and used to make lovely favors for her coworkers (I was a happy recipient). Her Valentine’s Day enthusiasm is contagious.

not a piece of your mind.â€

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.Â 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 HeartÂ is lifted as well.
Itâ€™s such fun to be inspired with other craftersâ€™ 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.”
