west elm - heart - st jude - meg biram

Any reason to pull out some paint (watercolor in this case) I’m game. When it benefits something like St. Jude, I’m beyond willing to participate. West Elm has asked me to participate in decorating a paper heart to help build the world’s longest heart paper chain and help them spread the word about it. They are donating $1 to St. Jude for every heart on the chain, and will deliver the chain to decorate a St. Jude hospital. If you want to participate with me, head to your nearest West Elm store (in the United States) on February 11th between 6pm and 8pm to add a heart to the chain.

When asked about this I immediately knew I wanted to paint the heart and use the word love. When I got the paints out, I was thinking about who would see this heart. I wanted anyone to be able to read what it said — then it came to me — love in many languages. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, and wanted to paint all day!
