diy // l-o-v-e yarn letters.

One evening, a hubster's help and a lil vino will get ya through this deceivingly easy DIY. That's right. Deceivingly easy. I must admit, at first glance the thought of constantly wrapping and weaving seemed a little intimidating, thinking it would take forevers. But I went for it anyways 'cause I'm irrational like that. Oh the things we do to have that certain unique decor that just clicks with your own aesthestic style, no matter how time-consuming it seems. 4 hours later and ... I'm done??

(I'm sure switching out the B and S of the original planned B-E-S-O with L and V might have something to do with cutting the time in half.) But hey, what a pleasant surprise to find a 'challenging' project to be notsobad. Even more of a reason to L-O-V-E this project. Huzzah.

Note: Besides the obvious use of different yarn colors from the tutorial, I've opted to use Mod Podge instead of a glue gun. It's been almost a week since finishing this yarn project and so far so good with the Mod Podge.

8 years ago, today.

8 years ago, today, I dated this guy. And have been dating him ever since! Wow! Where has the time gone?? Feels like we've been married for 8, not 2! I must make my yearly thanks to the bestest wing-woman evar for making it all happen. Hurricane Rita. Even though she sent me on a dreadful 19 hour evacuation course out of Houston (curses!), subsequently, I wouldn't have spent 5 wonderful days in Austin with Vince while waiting out the storm. Because of her and the story behind me and V's early courtship days (it's a good one, y'all!), our dating anniversary actually means more to us than the wedding anniversary. Here's to another 8 years of 'dating', V!

besos ... jincent.
