Cup O' Love

A toast to my willy-nilly heart:

Love love.

Slowly, drink in the love everywhere.
In time, the clarity comes.

There is a crack, a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in.

-Leonard Cohen, Anthem

Photo - Last Friday, I took a Sharpie to my empty, paper coffee cup.
I couldn't help myself.


  1. Your ability to make the most everyday thing beautiful art is amazing!

  2. Hey, Jenny... you are a doodeler! (If that's a word)

  3. You mess maker, sharpie lover you.

  4. A white cup and a sharpie...the thing dreams are made of. Love it.

  5. Steven - Thank you!

    Woodcutter - A doodler...that I am. And it is a word. :)

    Dan - I do love Sharpies! Funny you should mention my being a mess-maker; the photo is coming tomorrow...

  6. Thank you, Susan. I am glad you understand!

  7. Fantastic. I love the cup and the words. I'd like a cup of love and clarity please.

    much love

  8. jenny - sharpie art now!!! cool. the leonard cohen line is a personal fave of mine. steven

  9. I can't draw worth a crap, but I'm a bang-up doodler. As long as I don't think about what I'm doodling, that is.

    I'll have to tell you about my tattoodle some time.

    Sharpies are awesome. Except when your two-year-old takes one to the wall. And the coffee table. And the kitchen floor.

  10. Hey Jenny, most of my doodling happens at the occasional meeting I attend. Depending on the degree of boringness my agenda and other hand outs have become works of art!

  11. We are using the cup of love as our inspiration for decorating cups for my daughters birthday this year!!! Thank you for this post...we are having fun with this project!
