Happy Wednesday everyone! I have a fun little prim garland that I whipped up. It is super easy and smells heavenly too! I used some scrap ticking stripe and waverly floral fabric along with some homespun to make "patches" on the hearts. They didn't show up so well in the photo, but I basically just "ripped" the homespun into small square shaped "patches" and attached them to my finished hearts with heat-n-bond.

I hope everyone has wound down from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I know it's cold out there and we are now cooped up for a long winter. So, I thought I would tell you all about my New Year's resolution ( yes, I am a little late, but bear with me please) I have thought long and hard about what it should be. Like everyone, I have lots of things I'd like to change and loads of projects I should be working on, BUT.. what is truly important in life?? An organized closet, a little weight loss perhaps?? Not really. What is truly important in my opinion is the lessons we teach our children about the life we lead and the type of person we are. This leads me to my resolution. If we ALL just looked for the good in people, if we All just tried to understand anothers hardships, if we ALL had sympathy for others, the world would be better. It would teach our children that people ARE good. I pledge for the New Year to be kind to others, to put myself in other peoples shoes and to just do good!
I know it seems small and sort of silly, but I will do my best to adhere to my plan. I hope you all will join me in doing a little kind deed for someone else when they least expect it. I think it will make us all happier! I'll see you all back here on Friday for a great recipe and a little "lighter" post! Have a great day everyone!!
