ok here's my big problem. i'm totally brain dead.  Undecided
i have a lsit of a 100 things i love about my boyfriend..yea that took me a few hours Wink
 and now, i want him to see my list..but not just SEE you know.
i wanna craft something fabulous out of it.
 
my ideas are
1. jus roll em up as little pieces of paper and put em in a box/container
2. leave them lying around for him to find (this is a prob coz i dont see him that often)
3. make a scrapbook with 100 pages, one for each thing i love.

that's all i got folks. and i feel terrible that my creative juices have failed me.  Cry
im counting on all you craftsters to help me out ok Cheesy
luv y'all

i like the box idea or the scrapbook idea. that way you're sure to not have one reason go missing.

with the scrapbook he can always have it and it will be easily accessible for him to reread later on!!

good luck!!

A long time ago I had a boyfriend and we went to school in different cities. I bought a ceramic pineapple at a thrift store and filled it up with little pieces of paper that had little cute thoughts. I told him to read one every time he missed me. It worked out really well. So I say go with the container, but personalize it. Paint or decoupage it, or get a container that's suited to him.

Good luck.

Once I made notes (I was leaving town for three weeks) punched holes at the top and strung them together with bendable ribbon.  When he left for work I went to his place and hung them all around his bedroom.  He came home early that day, before I left for my trip, and the surprise didn't have the effect that I planned.  But I saw face, and that was a sweet moment.

To avoid affecting his manly sensabilities, why don't you try making a secret pocket in the pillow and filling it with the lullaby and maybe a small article of your clothing that has your scent on it? I used to love sleeping with my man's t-shirts when we couldn't be sleeping together.

well.. i struck with a weird idea...and i was in a crazy mood so i went on with it.
i saw somewhere up here a post where someone wrote reasons why they love their boy on origami stars. she then put it in a pocket labelled "if i had a star for the reasons i  loved you, i would have the sky.." something like that.
it rang a bell in me..and i sat down and cut 50 (64 to be exact) medium sized stars and two big ones..and made a book out of them . i'm going to write a reason i love him on each page..and probably add some pictures along the way.
thank you all for the help!!

i really REALLY appreciate it..you guys are such an inspiration
