Hearts Full of Snark for Anti-Valentine’s Day Types

Standard

So, I’ve never been much of a Valentine’s Day-flowers-and-hearts type of girl. (Notice I did not say I object to candy or wine….)  This year – actually last year, our supermarkets broke out the conversation hearts about 3 days after Christmas.  You know, the ones that say things like “Call Me” or “Q T PIE.”  Gack.  The kids are too old to fall for my “Candy hearts are not ripe until February, you know” line anymore. (Worked for years!)

Anyway, in past years I tried making candy heart-like polymer clay charms.  It worked great, and I have a cute little bracelet loaded with them…but it’s not very me.

This year, I had a vision of a different sort of candy heart.s  Ones with the kind of messages I sometimes felt like sending back in the pre-happily-married days.  Messages like “BACK OFF” or “R U SERIOUS?”  Pastels didn’t seem to fit the idea, so I came up with these (available for purchase at my Artfire shop):

I decided that trying to do our local holiday bazaars this year was just not going to work.  Hubby is taking a welding class on alternate Saturdays . . . which just happen to be the Saturdays I was planning to sell at the bazaars.  (Also, flu season and snow have hit. Bleh.)  So I am trying to stock up my ArtFire shop.  Only two new items posted so far, but I’ll be taking some more photos today.  Come back soon for more updates!Goofy Cat with Vest

For some reason, I can’t get the other new item’s picture into this post. Grrr.  So go visit ArtFire.com!  My shop is Butterscotch_Grove.
