When I was thinking about a name for this round up I went back and forward with this idea. I love the concept of looking “through rose tinted glasses” but traditionally it has negative connotations of false ideology and I didn’t want to relate that interpretation with the tutorials I’d included in the round up. But then I thought more about this idea. What’s so wrong with seeing the good in the world? Turn on the news right now and all around us it seems that as humans we are selfish, violent and power hungry. Yet in the midst of this destruction are good people selflessly carrying out brave and courageous acts of kindness that change lives.
I’m not saying we should ignore the bad, but focussing on the good might help us make small changes which combined could have a real impact. No single person can save the world but we can try our best to help each other. Try those rose tinted glasses on for size and make a positive change. We all know creating is good for the soul so grab a friend who’s down and make one (or more) of these gorgeous DIY projects together.
