pin + action | 06 front door mat


pin (p n) ac·tion (ak'sh n) v.

1. the act of pinning; and then making, crafting, copying, diying, the pin


early in my pinning days i'd seen this mat and thought, 'hey, i could make that for our front door!' and so it went every time i passed the mats in department stores i searched for a plain mat with nothing on it. about a month ago i was in walmart and saw one. i nabbed it! the other day i picked up stencils.

with black acrylic craft paint, a foam brush, and those stencils i made my mat. besides it being super crooked, and uncentered hoosier man and the boys like it - so it's going out our front door. we currently have a very old, very faded mat that we had purchased years and years ago when we were in virginia on a mission trip to equipping the saints. the mat says, ' well butter my bu*t and call me a biscuit, look whose here!' pretty cool!

but, then, so is hi. i'm mat.

i wasn't kiddin' about the crooked and off-centered but i'm gonna put it out anyway. not everything i pin and take action on is gonna' turn out perfect. i get that. but this one isn't bad enough to hide.
