Hearts are everywhere this month! A lot of blogs have
heARTS, tutorials, heart sharing and displays. Here are a few I have found.
My son and my Mom, found these mussel shells on the shore in Maine. They hunted for awhile to give me this rare gift. He was 4 at the time; he is 21 now. Time flies doesn't it... I remember being thrilled, i have always looked for signs in nature, especially hearts.
Chrissy of Cul*ti*vate has a 14 day Heart observation.
Some nature finds, some unique ones.
Becky Shander, shares a cute Greencraft Valentine project!
I'm a working on mine, now...hope to post soon. I have been a bit distracted.
Rebecca Sower is filling the world with hearts on her blog.
Her passion for aiding Haiti, is amazing. I still need to make something
for her etsy store, Haiti by Hand. My daughter's school has a project it is
called, "Helping Haiti",they are sending specific supplies. My husband's ship has been doing fundraisers and the Navy is still there. His ship is still in the yards. A lot of local churches
are also sending items.
This can't compare to any major world events, but I have struggled lately with what is going on in my back yard. I found myself calling the sheriff, today-I live in a small town. We live near swamp lands. We were told they were environmentally protected; recently we found out, the trees were sold for the wood..huh?
They were too close to my land. There had not been a representative come to the door, stating, "We will be behind your house tomorrow". They were crossing my yard; I couldn't put my dog out, because wood chips were flying everywhere. I found the layout of our land. We own 2ft into the swamp. The cutting was getting too close..so I called and it was stopped today, til the boundaries are confirmed. It makes me sad to see all these trees up rooted and all the animals that are losing their homes. Yes, today, I was a Tree hugger.
I am making a heart with a tree on it...didn't get it finished, but thought it would be appropriate.
It is shocking to go out in my backyard now. Everyone says, It will grow up fast. My husband
thinks we should fill it in with sand and pretend it is our own personal beach. This swamp is 1 mile, from the top of the street to our house. There will be a lot more trees falling. Just makes me sad...
I have many <3's; Nature is one of them!
