A Quick Craft

Today, I had quite the lazy morning. I took time to do my hair (what? I didn't just throw some product in it and call it a day?!), my make up, eat a good breakfast, write in my journal, and do a little crafting.
 
It was so random and out of the blue..I've had these supplies since before I moved into the apartment, always planning on doing an embroidery project but never got around to it.

I guess I opened my closet, saw them, and felt the need to...stitch?

 The other funny thing about this is that I had NO idea what I was making until half way through. The plan in the beginning was to just do a heart in the middle...but it didn't work out like that.

Five minutes later I had a cute, simple project done.

But absolutely nothing to do with it. It doesn't match my room, and it's not cute enough to give away.

 So I hung it over my door.

I'm a little obsessed now. I spent the next 30 minutes searching for idea on pinterest. And I already have a Hobby Lobby shopping list. Goodness.

Oh I love it! Simple and it IS cute enough to give away! You need to come up with a little slogan about hearts or something to match it!

Love how it turned out! Joann's just opened down here and had crazy grand opening sales so I went nuts with it. You should open up an Etsy shop for the ones you don't keep! I'm updating mine on the 15th I hope!
