Valentine's Hearts

"Where so ever you go,
go with all your heart."

   Since I have been sick I have had a lot of time on my hands. Bed rest for weeks on end can become nearly unbearable. I had to do something to relieve the monotony! I drew pictures to begin with but when, in a stupor of foggy-brained illness, I exploded a pen ALL OVER MY ROOM (and I mean all over - my curtains are ruined and I spotted my carpet and bed linens. I was soaking antique lace for a day trying to save it from the few spots that landed on my vanity.) I decided I needed to think of something else to occupy me. I have a file folder on my computer full of pictures of projects that I want to try "someday". I decided to do something Valentine's day themed and this is what I came up with! I made these four ribbon work heart ornaments which I have now listed in my Etsy Shop. I loved making them and I was very happy with how they turned out. Let me know what you think of them! I see many more projects happening in the future - maybe there was a plus side to being sick for so long. Thankyou to everyone who sent me get well wishes! You are all so sweet!

I am sharing with:


  1. The hearts are very pretty, Jennelise! Sorry to read you were ill so long, but hope you are feeling much better now. I think your drawings are wonderful! Blessings, Bess

  2. Your hearts are so pretty and l love all the little details like the pearls attached to the button, the feathers and frilly edges....Jennelise l had no idea you'd been so ill, l do so hope you're on the mend now.

  3. These heart of yours turned out beautful Jennilise ......
    Hoping your feeling better....


  4. I'm so sorry to hear of the incident with the exploding pen...that is just terrible! I hope you were able to salvage a few things?!?! The hearts you created are stunning...I don't think I can pick a favorite because they are all so gorgeous!!! I hope you are feeling better :o)

  5. Hearts are magic, as all of your works :)

  6. Bummer about the pen and not feeling well. Lovely hearts!

  7. Ces cœurs sont des merveilles,
    merveille de douceur
    merveille de romantisme
    j'adore, surtout continue.
    Tu sais lorsqu'on est très malade et très longtemps
    souvent nos dons se révèlent comme s'ils étaient envoyés par le ciel
    ou comme si on nous avait rendu malade pour que nous prenions conscience de nos dons.
    Tu es très douée et je t'admire.
    J'espère que maintenant ta santé est meilleure.
    Passe une belle soirée
