Title: Encore
Description: 50 more flower icons, just because. I'm dedicating these, again, to my amazing, exhausted mother.

ETA: Ack! Now with cut tag! So sorry!
ETA2: Aaaaaand now all 50 are up, instead of just 40. *facepalm*

and the final 50 )

My favorite flowers, by the way, are orchids. They're all so strikingly female-shaped.

Title: I Knew A Florist, Once
Description: 30 floral icons, in honor of my mother. She is a florist, and neither she nor anyone else in the industry will get any sleep until February 15th. If you will be buying flowers tomorrow, please - be kind. The last time I worked a V-Day in her shop, it was a 15 hour shift with maybe one ten minute break, for everyone.

(All the floral designers I know, by the way, call Valentine's "D-Day".)

Please comment what you take, and feel free to edit these as you like.

Today's theme is 14 Valentines: Voting, and all I can really say is this: if we do not vote, we have no say, and if we aren't speaking for ourselves, then who will? If we do not work to give others the right to choose for themselves, then the world will never be any different than it is right now. And, frankly, right now is not looking so hot.

Okay, I am just posting the bare bones of this now to get it in while it's still Day 3 - sorry, RL has gotten in the way today.

In 2 hours, when I get back, I will upload some drawings to this post from my life drawing class, all sketches of different women, in honor of the body image theme today. Now, I may be biased because I spend four hours at a time watching these people, but regardless of shape I find all of these women to be incredibly beautiful, and am grateful for the opportunity to draw them every week.

ETA: here are the first two! Oops - now with cut tag.
ETA 2: four more.

Okay, a little bit of personal history here. (This began as a response I left earlier tonight in this post, and it got me to thinking.) Growing up, I never felt like I was doing it right. I was told directly and indirectly by everyone but my parents that I was too much, that I was not acting like a normal little girl - and I believed it. I went from the little girl who danced on tables and told wild stories and raced the boys and asked the questions to the quiet, shy girl who kept her ideas to herself and waited. Well I, for one, am tired of this. I am tired of trying to "behave," tired of having friends tell me they would never have guessed I was so funny, dorky, fantastic, and relaxed when they first met me. I am allowed to be myself, dammit.

Today, women have more opportunities at our disposal than our great-grandmothers could have ever dreamed of - and we cannot forget that difference. If we band together, keep talking, keep questioning, keep working at this, who knows what else we will end up with?

This is my contribution to the 14 Valentines project.
