Most of my ‘working hours’ come after my little man is in bed at night. Some nights I get a lot accomplished, and other nights I just veg and think about all the things I should be getting accomplished! I probably have the latter type of nights more often than I’d like to admit, but it is during those ‘thinking’ times that I come up with new ideas.
This ‘peace and love’ idea was born that way.
It started with a simple heart shape. I am a big fan of the saying “live, love, laugh,” in fact, I sign many of my personal letters “love and laughter” which I think is a good summary of who I am: lots of love and I love to laugh! But ‘laughter’ isn’t really a shape that I can cut out of fabric. So I thought about other things I like, and, for anyone who really knows me, they know I have a love (well, ‘addiction’ might be a better description!) for sweets! Cupcake was a simple shape I could make. But, two shapes didn’t look quite right, so I added the ‘peace’ sign and the “Peace, Love, Sweets” shirt was born!
Simple things is life, right?!

I’m actually really pleased with the way it turned out! I’m hoping others like it as much as I do. I just might have to come up with other ‘sweets’ to create as well... ice cream and cakes might be soon to follow!
