This is my second effort to keep 2012 crafty and full of DIY projects! I think I’ll do one a month. My inspiration derived (again!) from sweet Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess. This song lyric wall art was super fun, easy and cheap to boot. For full details and tutorial head on over to A Beautiful Mess.
I already had acrylic paint, the letters cost me $4 at Michael’s (with a coupon) and the painting I picked up at Good Will (on a 50% off tag day) for $1.60.
Here’s what she looked like it:
I really wanted to use 2 or 3 different song lyrics for this project originally, but that would have required me to buy 2 packs of vinyl letters so I opted for short and sweet. Still a great line and also reminds me of Sailor Jerry style tattoos!
I’m annoyed our governor cares more about the death of public figure than allowing a bill to pass to allow people that love each other to get married. I hope McDonald’s passes a bill that says you can’t have anymore Big Macs. Also, cool a basketball player does what he’s suppose to do, everyone is amazed. I didn’t even know basketball was still happening until last week…
I’m also still watching the Bachelor for god only knows what reasons and I hate it. Yea we get you guys, you’re falling in love in waterfalls and helicopters. Live with this dude in the real world after a bad day at work, your dog poops in your bed, and there’s a thousand bills in your mailbox. Still love him? Great. Also every girl that goes home believes she’s alone for the rest of her life, maybe but likely not, calm down!
I was mildly obsessed with my outfit today, so I took a picture in the bathroom. One of my students regarded it as J.Crew meets the 80s. I’ll take it. Not pictured, some fierce black pointy pumps.
The American Heart Association calls today, February 3rd, Wear Red Day. Unfortunately heart disease is the number one killer of women, even more than all types of cancer combined. Sadly, heart disease can be a risk even just because it runs in your family, like me. My dad’s side of the family has worn the burden of this disease for many years.
In the last 10 years I have made it my number one driving force in dropping over 50 pounds. Besides wanting to look and feel better, I want to decrease my risk for heart disease. You only get one heart, and one life… stay healthy!
Find out what you can do to get healthy, but most importantly spread the word to all your loved ones of all shapes and sizes!
