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:
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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.
