The Second Annual Sheepish Heart Bomb!

Are you ready to share the love? I am so excited to host the second annual Sheepish Heart Bomb event on Valentine’s Day!

Did you participate last year? I came up with the idea to knit/crochet/make a heart, attach a kind note, and leave it somewhere for a random person to find. It made me so happy to see hearts hanging on trees, benches, signs, and doors around the world! I got a little teary when I received tweets from the people who found your hearts and how much it meant to them to feel loved on Valentine’s Day.

I am so excited to continue the tradition this year! You only have to do three things in order to join the fun…

1. Make a heart! Knit it, crochet it, sew it, cut it out of felt…whatever your heart desires! Haha. Just make it with love.

2. Attach a note. Say something like, “You are loved!” or “Smile!” or “Everything is going to be ok.” Make sure you include the #sheepishheartbomb hashtag so we can see your creations on Twitter and Instagram

3. Leave it out in the world on February 14th! Hang your heart creation somewhere out in your community on Valentine’s Day. Leave it in a place where someone will find it and smile!

That’s it! Get started on your hearts today! Would your knitting or crochet group like to participate? Get your friends involved and let’s cover the world with hearts! Valentine’s Day can feel a little silly to some people and isolating to the single people among us…haha. Let’s turn the focus on what the day is really about and spread a little love to the world! This event is all about using your creativity to brighten someone’s day!

Share your Sheepish Heart Bomb progress on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook. with the hashtag #sheepishheartbomb.

I can’t wait to see your creations!

    You are in my fav.blog list!
    Compliments i love your blog 😉

  19. Have just discovered you. Think the heartbomb is a great idea. I will give this a go

    Could I be cheeky and ask a question please. I too am on blogspot but am having great difficulty in that many people are telling me that they cannot save and publish their comments on my blog. Have had comments so it only happens intermittently but I think it happens too often and so is pitting people off commenting! Have you had this problem? Tried blogspot help, but didn’t really… :(

  33. I used to be suggested this website through my cousin.
    I’m now not positive whether or not this post is written by him
    as no one else know such particular about my trouble.

    You are wonderful! Thank you!

  34. I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound
    up here One Sheepish Girl | The Second Annual Sheepish Heart Bomb!.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it look like a few of these remarks
    come across like they are written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of all of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  35. My family members all the time say that I am killing my time here at web, however I
    know I am getting knowledge daily by reading thes good articles or reviews.
