366 Hearts

366 Hearts on FacebookIf you’re look­ing for inspi­ra­tion for Valentine’s Day, look no fur­ther than 366 Hearts!  I just learned of this project and stayed up half the night being inspired with new ideas to try. You’ll find cre­ative hearts com­bined with mean­ing­ful quotes for every day of the year.

Tal­ented artist, Hazel McNab, has chal­lenged her­self to cre­ate a new heart a day from Valen­tines Day 2012 until Valen­tines Day 2013, with hopes of get­ting 1,000 likes on Face­book before she reaches #366.  She’s only a cou­ple of hearts away, so let’s help push her over the edge (so to speak!) by vis­it­ing her blog to view her hearts, and then lik­ing her page on Face­book!

With Valentine’s Day just around the cor­ner, you might want to share these hearts with your stu­dents and inspire them to cre­ate some unique heart designs of their own.  Try a con­sec­u­tive lines heart (#302), a tree of hearts (#274), a Monet (#228) or Dali (#209) inspired heart, a sim­ple vase of heart-shaped flow­ers (#133), or even a cir­cuit board heart (#81).  Kudos to Hazel for set­ting a goal and stick­ing with it!

Have you ever chal­lenged your­self to cre­ate some­thing new every day for a year?  What strate­gies did you use for stick­ing with it?

      Hi Cheryl thank you so much for shar­ing my 366 Hearts. I’ve absolutely loved doing this project, and had such lovely feed­back and sup­port along the way. The strat­egy that works for me is to start an online blog. Hav­ing shared my inten­tion with oth­ers makes me feel more com­mit­ted to doing my hearts, as i feel i would be let­ting myself and oth­ers down if i didn’t do them.
      best wishes

    Hmm it seems like your web­site ate my first com­ment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thor­oughly enjoy­ing your blog.
    I too am an aspir­ing blog blog­ger but I’m still new to every­thing. Do you have any help­ful hints for inex­pe­ri­enced blog writ­ers? I’d really
    appre­ci­ate it.

      I think the best advice for “aspir­ing blog­gers” that I can share is what a friend told me when I was first start­ing out… “Accept great, because per­fect doesn’t exist!” In other words, if you wait to have every­thing per­fect before you start, you’ll never start! Just give it your best and then keep work­ing at it, improv­ing on it as you’re able to. Best wishes to you… enjoy the journey!!
