From My Heart to Yours

How you choose to interpret the theme is completely up to you. It simply needs to be tasteful – no pornography or messages of hate here. When you sit down to create, you cannot think about how people will or will not receive your work. You are required to simply enjoy the act of creating.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving, a day to give thanks for the many riches such as friends, family, food on the table and so on. We will not be playing as we will all be surely eating but this TST will be revealed on Thursday, December 2nd.

For this treat, I'd like you to do three things. First, turn on the song below and dance around. I mean it, get up from your chair and dance around your house with joy! Second, I'd like you to think about the words - I love you. How do those words apply to your life right now? Maybe you haven't taken care of yourself the way you would like and need to say, I Love you, to you or perhaps it brings the thought of someone in your life, a loved one, daughter, son, grandchild, friend, etc. Think about that person during Thanksgiving. Finally, give thanks for them and then create something new with them in mind.

Important Guidelines

The work submitted must be something you have created and/or worked on between the time the theme was revealed and the Thursday unveiling. Please submit your response to no later than end of day Wednesday, December 1st if you would like it to be posted on Thursday, December 2nd. OR send me a link to your response to include in the comments section of the post.

With your response please include:

1. Your name - either first name, shop name or both.

2. The name of your piece (if you choose to give it one)

3. Something you'd like to share (process of creation, idea behind piece) if you'd like to share anything. Please limit this to 2-3 sentences

4. The shop and/or blog links you'd like to include

5. Two photos of your piece or of each of the pieces (3x5 or 4x6 and 72dpi or a max of 96dpi - if you need any help with that please don't worry I'd be happy to help!)

Most importantly, make something from your heart!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!
