OH Valentines!

So...about a year or so ago, one of my favorite crazy artists Ashley Longshore posted a valentines 'challenge' of sorts to all of her 30,000 or so Instagram followers.....to create their best coolest most unique valentines and send them to her...and she'd choose her favorites and send them a valentines of her own...

So of course I had to take part in this little event!

I decided to do a take on the classic little chalky candy hearts we all know and love...

And if you are at all familiar with Ashley's ebullient personality and wild sense of humor..or happen to come across her nearly continuous flood of crazy instagram posts ...you'll understand the subject of my valentines.

  so i made a little heart-shaped box...and packed them up....

So....I think she liked them. 

even hinted that she was pleased with my entry on my instagram page...

They are pretty cool I must say. But...not really something you can just hang up anywhere....

As for a valentine from Miss Ashley....Well...still waiting....
