first - before you do anything - you need to decide what you want your canvas to say. i chose "i carry your heart" because it is a line from my favorite poem by e.e. cummings - and my sister read it at our wedding. i love it for its simplicity. you want to be sure you have all the letters you need for your project AND that it all fits properly on the canvas that you choose. so don't leave the craft store until you laid it all out and made double sure it looks the way you want it to.
