I started 1,000 Works of Heart last year when I learned that painting that swashy heart shape with the paint left on my brush from a “real” painting was a heart-happy Zen move. One can’t paint a heart and be cranky at the same time.
The same goes for GIVING a heart. This selling stuff is hard, though. If it weren’t going for such a good cause, charging money for things that were so fun to make would feel wrong. (Of course wrapping and shipping makes we want to charge double. Thank goodness for helpers.)
