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!!
