I'm delighted with my work from today. Everything came together easily, and I am happy with the way it looks. As I was making this piece, I realized that Valentine's Day is coming up and that this piece is definitely in the spirit of love. In continuing with the unzipped theme, I wanted to convey what can happen if you unzip your heart and allow it to open up to all the possibilities around you. I wanted to express that there are many facets to love. I'm tickled by how the unzipped heart also looks like a butterfly. I had to get creative in finding a zipper that would work, because the zipper I purchased for this piece was too long. I ended up cannibalizing an old makeup case for the zipper, and it works perfectly.
May your life be filled with love in all of its facets.
In Gratitude, Karen
