What Makes Your Heart Happy?

During February we’ve been talking a lot about doing things to keep your heart healthy, and we shouldn’t forget that an important part of heart health is doing what you love! This commercial for Equador, with the stunning photography and wonderful Beatles tune, certainly made our heart soar when we saw it! It’s a beautiful world out there, we should get out and enjoy it!

 

 Our Ravelry Group Responds

Happy Heart CollageWe posed the question, “What Makes Your Heart Happy?”, to our Ravelry group and had a wonderful variety of answers that we expected, and some we didn’t. Weavers, spinners, knitters and crocheters all responded, where you one of them? Feel free to join us! Here are a few of the responses that really struck us:

  •  …when that idea becomes a project just the way you imagined it.
  • Right now my livestock makes me happy… baby ducks next week, and baby goats not too long after that!
  • When my husband helps me warp my looms.
  • Those breath-taking moments in nature like watching a raptor soar on a thermal make my heart sing.
  • Color in the winter!

Crafting a Happy Heart

A fabulous way to brighten up the drab winter days is to bring the color RED into your next project! Red is eye-catching, energizing, and is the color of energy, passion and action! Creating and giving are two of the most important parts to keep your heart happy.

Cotton Clouds will donate 10% of all Stitch Red kit sales (through March 1, 2015) to Heart Truth, an organization that promotes women’s heart health. Join us, and together we can save lives … it could be your own!

Everyone likes a good laugh, but in all seriousness, more women die of cardiovascular disease than all forms of cancer combined! Too many of us have family members dealing with heart issues. Take good care of your heart! Give your heart lots of love, with laughter and smiles, exercise and a healthy diet!
