Have you ever had a bad day where nothing ever seems to go right ? and then out of the blue found something completely random that made you smile ?
When I was little , I used to take home pebbles from the beach , like most kids do. Only I would paint smiley faces on them and then take them back to the beach , or hide them around the area I lived in.
I loved that someone would find one and smile or that maybe a child would find it on the beach and keep it in their treasure box.
So when I heard about the amazing page 'I heart Bridgend' on Facebook my heart leapt with glee !
Basically Bridgend has had a lot of bad press over the last few years , which is pretty sad as it's actually not a bad place to live. 'I heart Bridgend' is a page encouraging locals to make a heart ( from paper , card , fabric etc ) and hang it somewhere for someone to find. It's like hiding those pebbles all over again but this time I can see when someone has found a heart and posted it on the Facebook page ! It's all anonymous so no one would know I had made the heart but it's still pretty exciting to see it's made someones day :)
If you are from Bridgend and would like to join in why not make a few hearts , tag them and hang them around to spread the joy ! If you are not local , why not start up your own page ?
Below are some of my personal favourite ideas and designs..
