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)
