day twenty-four - love.
I made these for a project months ago by painting a quick, fun rainbow gradient on some newspaper and then cutting the hearts out with a paper punch. I just unearthed them the other day, stored in a junkmail envelope with RAINBOW HEARTS scribbled on the front.
Creating things---collages, crocheted animals, food, photos, stories---is kind of the great love of my life, I think, which isn't something I expected at all.
When I was a kid and sometimes (intentionally or not) ruined stuff, I remember my mom sometimes saying to me, exasperated, destroying things is easy, making things is hard. And sometimes it is. But it's also wonderful.
