Have I mentioned my new love (and maybe, addiction?) for Pinterest? (side note: you can follow me if you are interested in seeing what I am inspired by or just think is plain cool if you want). I am finding all sorts of inspiration there. . . it's great. Plus, I can just pin things to save the ideas for later so I don't have to try to remember where I saw a cool idea from. It's great, really. . . it's great!
So, for my friend's wedding (my son was the ring bearer!), I saw this card and decided to try it out. I grabbed my jar of purple, pink, and red buttons (you can buy small bags of coordinating colors of random buttons at JoAnns for a couple of dollars), a bottle of modgepodge, and a red marker. I layed it out to see if I could even come close to arranging the buttons in a heart shape. Then, I slowly glued each one on to my cardstock. I wrote love in my prettiest handwriting . . . I was so sure I was going to mess this up! And finished it off by rounding the two right side corners.
I think I like how it turned out. I've seen a lot of ideas with buttons. . . . some great gift ideas out there. I'm thinking I am going to have to try some out. . . after my year commitment to not overcommiting is over.
And since, I am on the topic of how cool Pinterest is. . . here is a link to an amazing breakfast recipe for one. . . it is awesome and quick. . . Apple Pie Oatmeal. Doesn't that just sound wonderful? It is . . . it really is! Plus I wasn't hungry an hour later, which is a BIG problem for me.
Have a wonderful day!
