A Challenge.

Ya'll know my absolute big l-o-v-e for Pinterest! Well, I was very intrigued when I saw younghouselove and bowerpower purpose a Pinterest Challenge...how fun! Also, what a great motivator to get my butt in gear and try one of my 1107 pins. Ya'll (no, I'm not from the South, nor have I ever lived in the South...it's just fun to type) also know that I am working on a gallery wall, which is taking me a little longer than I expected due to our summer fun in the sun! It just happened that both boys went down for some hard-core napping this afternoon, which gave me the perfect opportunity to take this challenge head-on, while also taking me one step closer to gallery wall completion.

I chose to replicate this heart embroidered map, which I thought would be a great addition to my wall.

I gathered all my supplies, a frame, embroidery thread and needle and a map (which unfortunately I had to buy at Tarjey for $5 because I could not find one in my house for the life of me!).

I then set to work and after about 15 minutes I had.....

My version of the heart embroidered map that signifies a very special place to Pat and I!

I love it even if my heart is a little wonky! With only one set of a supplies, I had one go at it, but I still think it turned out pretty darn cute!

I quickly slapped it up on my in the works gallery wall. It looks as if it was always meant to be there.

Pinterest Challenge Completion :)
