Looking for someone to point your crafting in the right direction? Look no further. It’s the arrow trend! Just like the hearts we discussed in an earlier post, this look is about more than Cupid. Some would say we have the Hunger Games series and Miss Katniss Everdeen to thank for the arrow trend, ahem, catching fire.
Maybe it is this sharp shooter. Or perhaps its the popularity of the chevron trend, which is still going strong, as the arrow shares its angular attributes.

No matter the reason, it’s easy to see a major arrow attraction going on.

When I first heard this song by Kacey Musgraves, it was like Cupid shot an arrow straight through my heart. And I’m not even a country music fan for the most part. Life can be confusing at times, and this song is a lovely reminder that we need to be true to ourselves. Not always an easy thing to do, but oh, so important. I hope you’ll take a listen.
