Maia painted about twenty of these coffee filter hearts that she told me were to sew on my shirts. She was really very insistent about this -- that she had made all these beautiful hearts for me and she wanted me to sew them on my t-shirts. I was touched, but explained that since they were made of paper, they would disintigrate as soon as they were washed. So we talked about other ways to use the hearts. She didn't want to hang them in the window. Finally, I asked her if she would like to frame them and hang them on the wall. Yes! I brought out a few acrylic box frames from our stash and she arranged the hearts carefully in them. We now have a collection of painted hearts hanging in our bedroom!
