This post was going to be about this super cute Valentine's Day project I did from Pinterest...but seriously friends, the Lord has laid something else on my heart to share with you all. Don't worry, it starts with Pinbterest, moves to Jesus, and then back to Pinterest.
I love Pinterest as much as the next person, check that, I love it as much as the non-crafty people who think they are crafty love it. I know my limits, sometimes when it comes to crafts. Eric now just doesn't even ask questions, he sees me buy it, try and make it, and then he either finishes it, or it just sits with the rest of the unfinished but I had really good ambitions pile.
I found this cute little wooden heart craft, and it seriously looked easy. Did I click the picture or anything to see the instructions, nope, I just figured I would figure it out as I went. I bought all the stuff I needed which really wasn't that expensive, score one for me and the husband :) I brought it home and so it has sat until yesterday. I finally encouraged myself to get it out and get started because Valentine's Day is going to be here sooner rather then later!
I painted first, which I can totally handle, no problem. Then when it came time to write on our names on the cute hearts, you know like how the conversation hearts have things on them...yea, I struggled. I know this seems silly. Like really silly, but I was terribly stressed. So I pumped myself up to write our names and bam, it sucked.
So moral of the story...when looking at Pinterest, or anything else that comes your way remember what God has gifted you with, is something cute, but you know you would be stressed out doing it, then leave it to those crafty nuts that love that, but when something you know you can do with ease pops up, do it! Allow God to bask in his glory when he sees how happy you are with the finished product. Since he gave you that talent you know!
And...instead of using paint for our names I used stickers, which let me say, also did not turn out how I envisioned. I finally had to just be finished with the project and move on. There's always next year, or not, either way, I am not stressed by it!
