I think it’s safe to say that if you’re reading my blog, you’ve probably found yourself lost in Pinterest once or twice (a week?). I feel like I visit the site for one purpose and twenty minutes later I feel like an empowered woman who wants four new outfits, two new puppies, and who’s on her way to Michael’s to make fifteen projects after work. I mean really, you need some serious woman-power to get yourself off that site. But I’m not a quitter, so you can find me there if you need me.
During holiday seasons, I usually cruise Pinterest to get some decorating ideas. That, and free prints for my holiday frames. Hint: You can spend $19.99 on a framed Valentine’s print at Target, or you can just buy a cheap frame (spray-paint it if needed), and print a freebie off Pinterest. This is the bane of my existence.
I found a few cute prints this year, but really wanted something a little more hands-on. So what’s a girl to do when she can’t find what she’s looking for? She makes it of course! So I got out my ruler, black marker, and went to town. I created this geometric heart print all by my lonesome (you might think this is not a huge feat, but I am NOT a drawer in any way, shape, or form). Printed two copies, cut pieces from one to trace onto patterned paper, and then glued said pieces onto the other. It’s pretty simple, although a little time consuming. Perfectly paired with a new show my husband is loving on Netflix (that I find a little slow).
In case you don’t have the extra time during a boring Netflix show, you can always just print my version (although it definitely isn’t as cool as making it yourself).
