We started off with some 11x12ish boards from Hobby Lobby. Then, of course, we painted them. And who wants new things if they actually look new? So we took sand paper to them and rubbed some of the paint off. We're so vintage.
Then came the nails. Thousands and thousands (maybe millions--who knows?) of nails. Death by nails. After driving so many into that tiny heart, it made me wonder if it was all worth it. But it was. Of course.
And then the string! Jenna beat me on the nails, but I had a much easier time with the string.
So the swelling and bruising has gone down a lot, but it's still pretty bruised right on the spot where the boat hit me. Also, this injury explains why I'm stuck inside doing crafts.
