Love is in the air around here. My son is sitting at the kitchen table making a beautiful valentine ~ for someone else. My hopes for a handmade card have flown out the window. He is crushing on another girl. I had to run out tonight and buy her heart chocolates! Lucky girl. Both my husband and daughter are away, but fortunately I have a few of my bestest girlfriends visiting so, please don't worry, there will be lots of love around this household.I think I may still have a valentine or two coming my way. I have spent my week playing with paint chip cutouts and hand-drawn hearts in all shapes and sizes.I have tried some different color combinations, but pink seems to keep sneaking in. My goal to create a pattern a day for #365patterns has been going really well. I am 11 days in and learning tons.I just finished Laura Coyles Automatic Pattern course and I can't say enough great things about it.Pattern making has just become a lot easier, more seamless! Pattern a day has oddly put my creative journey into perspective. It takes time popping out these patterns and I only have so much time in a day. So while I want this journey to be well on it's way~ I have accepted that it's going to take time and I have been content with my daily progress. I like having something to show for my efforts at the end of the day.My portfolio is slowly increasing in size, I am developing my style and thankfully loving this process every step of the way. I am really liking this color combination. I love pink, but I tire easily of it.I am loving yellow greens these days. There are a lot of hearts flying around this household... I hope your week of love is wonderful. It is a bit of a silly holiday, but it never hurts to spread the love around, so why not!? Sending lots of love your way.
