Exciting News!!

I am so excited! I am currently in the process of designing my new blog. Eeek!! 

When I first started this blog it was to document our trip to Ireland. Upon return it quickly turned into a craft blog, which is what my new blog will be about. 

All of my personal, family posts will still be shared on here, but all the crafty posts will go on my new site.

I can't wait! I hope you join me on my journey. I am planning on launching my new blog on February 1st. Here is a sneak peak!!

Our Journey...A Piece of Art for My Husband

This Christmas, I wanted to give my husband something special. Something to show him how much I care for him and love him, and love to be with him. I remembered this pin I saw on Pinterest, where someone had cut out hearts in maps of all the places they've been.

Such a great idea as we've been to a few places and love to travel. This is what I came up with. 

I used black and red to match our bedroom which we recently organized and redecorated. (This post will be coming up soon but here's a sneak peak.)

For the hearts, I used an old atlas that I found at my local thrift store. I cut a heart template out and traced the hearts onto the maps and went to town. In our travels we've been to Toronto, Jacksonville, The Bahamas, Mexico, Ireland and Paris.

At the top I used my Cricut to cut a heart around Winnipeg. This is where all of our trips start from and where we call home. 

In May when we went to Ireland we made a pit stop in Paris for a day to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary.

I think he likes it, I know I do. I'd love to know what you think. 

I'm linking up to the following sure to check them out!

Something to think about....

While exploring Pinterest the other day I came across this great pin. If only this message could reach every child.

Pinned Image

"A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on or better yet, if you're a parent or a teacher, do it with your child/children."
