: i totally want to make that : week 28 : 2012 goals edition :

happy wednesday!
did you enter the giveaway from yesterday?
i am giving away a copy to blake mycoskie's book [the guy that started TOMS] 'start something that matters.' its a beautiful book that i recommend for anybody that wants to see/create change!

a few weeks ago, i found this rad tutorial on pinterest ; 
making a giant canvas with your resolutions//goals.

what a fun idea.
the tutorial is much more in depth than what i did.
i used a 16x20 canvas, a bunch of scrapbooking letter stickers, black acrylic paint and a sponge brush.
[i suggest you do this when you have long fingernails, patience and a few hours]

1) i spelled out my 2012 goals in stickers.
2) painted over everything with black paint.
3) let it dry.
4) peeled off the stickers.
5) some of the paint got *under* my stickers, so i took a teeny-tiny brush and touched 'em up with white paint.

cute, right?
mine is a little messy and i like it like that.
if you want super crisp & clean lettering, trying the original tutorial might be best for you.
such a fun & easy way to display your goals around the house.

ps : HUGE sale on winter wear coming to the blog tomorrow. lots of new items + a discount code ;)
