I made my husband a vday present and thought about posting it here, I copy/pasted the v-day part of my journal entry, so that's why I sound nuts. =x
I SPENT NOTHING ON HIS VDAY PRESENT!!! I had all the supplies around the house. I was going to use three ring binder rings to keep it closed but I couldn't find any that were easy to get out so I used key chain rings because I used to collect keychains when I was younger and I had tons of different sizes, they are of my two largest rings. =o) I planned on doing tons more - but that's okay. I also wanted to use a red deck of cards, hwich I also had but it was for pinuckle?? and they only havelike 47 cards or something... so I had to use the only new deck of cards I happened to have lying around. =o\
husband = Brian
daughter = Verlina
^card I made Brian - I colored it with crayons - it says 'it's not much but it's all I got' and 'vday 2009'
^the cover of his vday gift
^a random 'page' in the vday gift
^the end two cards I wrote him a note. =o) It says 'Brian, I love you so much that this list doesn't do justice. I appreciate everything..' [it continues to say:] '..you do for Verlina and I. I'm so glad I met you. Love, Jessi'
^I cut out heart shaped holes in the cards, kept them... cut out hearts from the red paper I used for the cover behind the words.. and kept them too - put them on top of the card on top of the tissue paper.
^the final package. I used tissue paper I saved from a victora secrets purchase to make a package, then the card I made is the 'tag' and I used ribbon that says 'love' bunches of times to tie it all shut. So, when he rips into it - heart shaped confetti will go everywhere! YAY FOR MESSES!! Makes it more fun, I think!

I've never posted here before - so I hope I did everything right, I'm still trying to figure it out. =o| I hope to be more active as I am trying to be more crafty from now on. I like crafting.. love crafting, so I hope you all will see more of me. =o)
