i heart this idea!!!



I am really, really smitten with this garland idea Tania shared with us. She created a t-shirt on zazzle, then sent the t-shirts to family and friends near and far, with the request to photograph themselves wearing it. She even sequestered far-flung family members in Italy, neighbors and pets! Then she backed all of the photos with fabric and strung them on a garland to surprise her husband on his birthday. This homemade present was huge hit!

This idea is so fabulous and I think could be used for so many occasions beyond a birthday...a friend stuck in the hospital? Someone going through a hard time? Such an amazing pick-me-up to let someone know they are loved. Bravo, Tania! Check out more of the 'I heart Steve project' right here.

that is so great! what's the name of that thing the little kids do, where they send a paper cut out guy around to people and the people take a picture of him at different places and then send it back to the kid??? Ugh, why can't i remember the name? This I Heart Steve shirt idea reminds me so much of it!
