Love

It's craft time! I'm pretty sure it's been a while since I've shared anything crafty. Heck, it's been a while since I've DONE anything crafty. But never fear, the time has come.

I brought out my paints and glue gun this week and whipped up a cute little craft in no time at all.

I, of course, got my inspiration from Pinterest and with a little extra push from a friend, I made this adorable little sign out of popsicle sticks. If you want to see the original inspiration, click here.

I do plan on eventually making a full size one like the Pinterest one but since it will probably be a while before that happens, I thought I would start with a little mini one.

I liked how quick and easy it was. The longest part was waiting for the paint to dry between doing different layers. Oh, and practicing my handwriting with a toothpick.

It's a lot harder than you'd think actually. But I was happy with the end result.

Really happy actually. I put it up on the windowsill above my kitchen sink and it makes doing the dishes a whole lot nicer. I can just stare at my sign and smile.

Do you like it?
