Creative Monthly Challenge - What does your Heart Look Like?

Better late than never, but this is my entry for the Creative Monthly Challenge with Jenniebellie and the theme was "What does your Heart Look Like?"
I was not entirely sure what to do and then things cropped up at work so it was put off until half term but then that past.
I found this lovely sun catcher on Suzysitcom.com which I thought was lovely and there is a post on her website which you should go and read.
I felt that the use of wire would represent the combining of lots of different aspects of my life and how my love of making has gone from a hobby to a job and with off shoots such as my Art Journaling and website.
I bought some wire from Hobbycraft and created a heart shape and then criss crossed thinner wire in the centre.
Taking my blog name which has featured in my life for the past 7.5 years I found a range of blue fabrics and woven then through the thinner wire.
I teach textiles, so a few buttons were added.  I am trying to teach myself crochet hence the little flowers.  i also teach Art but struggled to add anything that would actually stay on so painted glass beads took its place.  I have made intricate beaded wedding bags so I felt it worked!
Many things make up my heart, including my hubby and daughter and all three of use have creative hobbies.
I also added lots of little silver beads around the edge using the thinner wire and tied on lots of organza strips.
It looks even better than the photograph suggests and I have it hanging up by my chair in the living room  Eventually I shall take it upstairs and have it by my sewing machine.  I really enjoyed making this once I got going, it is just a pity it took so long to get there!
