Valentines 2011


Because this Valentine thing has gotten a little out of control in a covetous way, I thought it would be nice if I was able to give people multiple valentines that were all similar but slightly different, so they could keep one or two for themselves and still have a few to give away. So I created a modular heart with which I could easily make 10 variations, and as well I made a heart that says “Remember when we were young, we used to give Valentines to all our friends.” (My best friend’s 7-yr-old did not get this at all, repeatedly saying “But we do give Valentines to our friends.” Yeah, wait ’til you’re older, kid.)


Everyone got 4 or 5 different Valentine hearts. As I said, they are supposed to give them away, but it seems people like to hoard them! Above are Kim Berlin’s.
