Today's HUGE HAPPINESS is a pretty big item. The very talented LeAnn Weih over at her Summers Studio blog makes exquisite ceramic pendants, etc. for jewellery makers to use in their designs. Well, it turns out she's into Zentangles also and happened by to see my "Monday Night at the Emerg" post. As an artist she zoned right in on the floral tangle and has turned it into something very, VERY special and beautiful. Then she asked my permission to post her pendant, mentioning and linking to my post for her inspiration! I love people with ethics!!! Even better, I love seeing art spawn yet more art! And she has done exactly as promised and her post today makes me feel even more honoured than I already did. She has shared a sense of her creative processing and development, as well as the final result. It's a real treat to see how someone else works their way towards their art (ps - she'll let you in on a few secrets from my own resume!). Take some time to check out her work; it will be worth it, I promise!
I somehow missed mentioning Valentine's Day in yesterday's post, folks - my apologies, but I've been divorced nearly as long as I was married, so it's not a high-priority holiday for me. On the other hand, I do want to send you lots of love as a tiny payback for what you've shown me, so I sat down tonight to draw you a valentine. This Hearts For You!
