Here is something simple I made to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I didn’t throw glitter, pink and hearts everywhere.. I don’t think Ryan would like that. I don’t think I would either, ha. But I got out my favorite medium (cardboard!!) and spent $0 to make this.
I drew out the letters by hand (our printer has no ink) and then cut them out with an exacto knife. Then I spruced them up with a little white paint and sewed them onto this frame that I covered in fabric with pink thread. Cardboard makes for easy stitching because it already has holes in it.
I added this extra XOXO detailing with the thread, because who doesn’t love hugs and kisses?
It’s stitched in love.
Switching directions, Lauren from Mercy Ink posted a thought provoking video titled “What Jesus would say about your blog stats” which talked about how bloggers can become obsessed with all the numbers and statistics associated with their blog (uh..guilty) and what we can do to turn our focus back to Jesus. It got me thinking.. if I am really blogging for myself why do I care so much about the numbers? And I should be thinking about Jesus more than I think about blogging related things. So to help get my heart in the right place, I decided that I am not going to check any blogging statistics from now until next Tuesday, the 12th. This is definitely going to be a challenge for me, but every time I want to check, I’ll focus on Jesus.
