One of the ways I decided to pass the time this summer,
is to go a little craft crazy.
My most recent craft was one I found on Pinterest
Gotta love that site!
The board says
"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold.
It is for those who know a good thing when they see it,
even if they don't see it enough."
And the heart is right where Topeka is.
Aww, oh so cheesy!
I started out with an ordinary board I got form Home Depot
And drew the shape of Kansas on it
Then nailed, nailed, nailed away.
(am I the only dirty minded one who laughed at that sentence?)
Then I decided that the outside needed a coat of white paint,
and the heart needed red.
Then I slowly realized that the thread I had chosen
blended right in with the board.
So I went and picked a new thread.
And this is the end result.
I have to say I felt like quite the boss.
I made something creative and girly,
But I hammered in about 40 nails.
I also framed all the plane tickets from the last 2 years that I have,
(which is just about every one. pathetic? Probably.)
along with any other pictures or things I have of us
I also found a flier for the dance we met at!
Didn't even know I had one till I moved!
