How Do We Love Thee? Let Us Count the Ways…
Even though Valentine’s Day has come and gone, we still consider February the “month of love.” As such, we have been reflecting back on our journey of starting this site over the past three months and have realized that the most rewarding part about everything we do is inspiring you guys, our dear readers, to go out into the world feeling a bit more creative each day.
Many of you have even written to us and sent in clever ideas, site feedback, and best of all, photos of projects you’ve replicated. We’ve been so touched by these that we wanted to share a few of our favorites for everyone else to see.
Reader Robert tweeted at us to let us know that his entire 5th grade class followed our tutorial for these fun photo scratch-offs. We love them!
Reader Katie followed our tutorial for making her Jawbone up look like a piece of jewelry using photo wire.
Reader Arnold Valentino downloaded one of our Facebook Timeline cover photos to hack his profile page.
Reader Lauren had a great spin on our Message In A Bottle 2.0 idea. She uploaded a pdf of two tickets for an Alcatraz night tour to a USB thumb drive then super glued it to the inside of a bottle for her Valentine to find.
Reader Evita followed our Super Simple Valentine’s Bunting tutorial to create some love-ly home decor.
Our motto at this company is “Live What You Love.” Likewise, our mission is to help inspire each of you add creativity and innovation into your own lives so that you can better live what you love, too.
