Look what love can do!

Here’s a little story about a match made in heaven (okay, made in my basement art room, which feels like heaven to me . . . )

Last year I made these little Valentines for my family.  Determined to play my slobbery-granny-heart cool, I grabbed some textured cardstock and loaded up some sass:

  1. Duct Tape.  My grandkids adore it. I love saving the bits of duct tape scraps by sticking them onto very thin cardboard or thick paper.  (See my Stuck on Happy post.)
  2. Foil Candy Wrappers.  Perfect companion with the duct tape bits. Of course I couldn’t resist doing some super girlie cards too.  I just swapped the duct tape hearts with scrapbook paper.
  3. The Stapler.  She pierces fast and forever!

Sticking it to You

I stuff the pieces of our past

inside my sticky soul.

Wrinkled ducts foil my obsession.

In eternal pain I staple them, sweetly smoothing

the shiny bits of our love.
