invite all your friends over, especially the friend with the pot belly pig. have it lap up your spilled beer and then frolic with (and head butt) your goats.
the tiny pig (aptly named francis bacon) will also remind you of how that pig roasting under the coals (see photo above) was also once a cute piggly wiggly. this will both be weird and amazing.
and she will bring you beer all night long.
don’t forget the ridiculously-large-sized jenga and ice cubes.
when the camera comes out you say “file!” and give me what you must think i look like when i smile: scrunched up, squinty eyes, clenched and bared teeth. it’s so so hilarious. you’ve also started running to the front door to pose. thanks for being so cooperative.
i love you, silly grin and all. love, mama.
- print out heart templates from here (print on cover stock or trace computer paper cut-outs onto a heavier paper and cut out).
- trace hearts on sheets of felt. cut out. (i used 12 paper sized sheets i bought from fancy tiger).
- sew hearts together in a color pattern (or random like me) of your choice. tip: sew from top down not from point up.
- hang with tape (or tie around small nails or pushpins) from windows or mantle or framed prints or blank wall. whatever you prefer!
tip: i would suggest sewing one long garland and then cutting-to-size as you decorate so you can have more control over length. i just sewed 10 on each strand without much thought to length and now they are all different lengths. this is fine and i’m happy about how it turned out but if i was to do it again i would try to make them a little more uniform.
