One of my New Year's resolutions was to be more crafty, and today I wanted to share with you two projects I am about to start. I need something to tear me away from my precious laptop, which sometimes seems like an impossibility, but I'm starting getting the itch to use my hands to make pretty things. You see, I look at pretty things all the time on the Interwebs and my mom is a floral designer and it finally rubbed off. You can guarantee my mom is at her computer thanking Jesus right this second.
I have this obsession with vintage cameras, well, all cameras really. So obviously I NEED these embroidery patterns from Kitschy Digital Goods.
Now here's some cross stitch patterns that ain't for your granny! This sh*t is f*ckin' cute! Anything that provides a sense of humor is good in my book. Subversive Cross Stitch has many hilarious kits to choose from. I love the "Shut the f*ck up" kit, mainly because this phrase is uttered at least 20 times a day in this house. It's out of love.
But what I think will strike a chord with many people is the "F*ck Cancer" kit. I'm thinking of buying this kit for myself and my mom as she has lost her two best friends, Jo and Deb, to cancer over the past three years. Jo recently succumbed to cancer just 3 days after Christmas and Deb's two year anniversary will be coming up on Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day also marks the death of Homer, he was my grandfather's best friend who died of liver cancer. He made sure to be there for me since of my grandfather died 3 years before I was born. So that's another reason I don't care much for Valentine's Day that I didn't mention in my previous post. All of them meant so much to me and I'm honestly finding it hard to finish this post. So since I can't physically give cancer a piece of my mind I can get my message across and heal through this amazing cross stitch pattern. I don't think I can thank Julie Jackson enough for designing this.
