Sing It Out Loud! Or At Least Write It.

22 Sep

I’ve always been a girl who loves to personalize things. Well – I did it again! I’ve been seeing people personalize their pillows with song lyrics they love – so I set out to find the perfect lyrics for my pillows 🙂 It took a while and a lot of no that’s not it between Brian and I. I wanted him to be as attached to these pillows as I want to be so he had a say in what we chose.

All you need is fabric, a fabric marker (or two), a pillow, a sewing machine (or you can hand stitch with a needle & thread), and some lyrics of course!

Brian and I chose to use the lyrics from Coldplay – Yellow. We are big Coldplay fans and some of our favorite songs as much as we liked them – really didn’t work out for pillow lyrics. So if you do this project you may realize that half of them don’t really work. I like songs with a little bit of  a repetition in it, but enough words to keep you reading.

If you don’t have consistent handwriting or are afraid you want write in a straight line – try not to worry. Mine isn’t either if you look closely enough you’ll realize I write like a third grader – but if you look back up at the picture above it doesn’t look so bad! Plus it gives it a little character 🙂

The rest of this how to will be posted later on. I’m excited to get the pillow sewn so you can all see the finished look of it!

What song would you love on a pillow for your room?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

Payback!

Okay so my last post about being successfully positive totally came back and bit me in the butt!! After thinking I had everything down pat to a science I woke up in a funk today. I am not going to sit here and list all the things that were driving me crazy because I know that would just be completely boring for you to read but it felt like everything was crumbling around me and I was having a minor meltdown!! I don’t know why I didn’t turn on music or try hot chocolate. I guess I just figured I would snap out of it in no time and be back on track! Not the case this time..

It took me until about 2:00 to realize that I need to read my own blog posts and actually do what I am telling myself to do! So I turned on some Taylor Swift and this song just seriously made me stop folding laundry and just stare into space thinking, “Holy Crud! She is a genius!” Here are the lyrics to the song Innocent:

Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days?
Always a bigger bed to crawl into.
Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything?
Everybody believed in you.

It was so much easier when everyone stood behind you knowing you could do it. When you were the kid in school that everyone always wanted to hang out! Gosh those were the days…

In the end she goes on to say:

Lives change like the weather
I hope you remember
Today is never to late to
Be brand new

And all I could do was sit there and smile. Thank you Taylor Swift for making my day again and again and again!

So here I am still in a funky kind of mood but at least I am smiling and hopeful this weekend is only going to bring more creativity and surprises! This is the time of the week that I love the most. I get so much time to be with B, an extra hand around the house to help me with E, and little reminders of how much he loves me.. Those are my favorite!!! This weekend may be just what I need to get back to where I want to be 🙂

Hope everyone else’s weekend turns out great too!

Love Always,

J
