Give the perfect two-sided throw pillow to that special someone. Why two-sided? Because it's a greeting card and gift in one! The “front” of the pillow offers the tease, much like a greeting card, whereas the other side of the pillow offers the punch, much like the inside of a greeting card. So what is “Ransom Notes from the Heart?” Generally, we think of ransom notes as figuring out what to write and then cutting out letters to give it that “ransom note” look. But this is “free-association” poetry—cutting out random sentences, phrases, or single words from various magazines, spreading them out on a large table, and then letting the mind go to work, connecting a phrase here, a word there, until something fun, interesting, even poetic is created! You could say it’s turning chaos into harmony. Combined with my art work, which is hand-made from construction paper and artist materials (nothing is photo-shopped!), the overall aesthetic of the art work is consistent with the organic feel of the free association poetry.
