Birthday Board Here ya go - - a Tutorial on how to make a Birthday Board! I guess it's about time I do a craft post for ya - I've enjoyed the break but am ready to show you some things that I've been up to - and I'm sure you're ready to read actual craft posts, since this is a craft blog and all :) I made this Birthday Board for Trevor's mom - Trevor is one of 9 kids, so there's a lot of them! Instead of doing the whole family's birthdays, I just did the grandkids and great-grandkids. The way it works is each disk represents a child. I originally pinned this idea from a link on etsy, and HERE's the Link!! You can search google or pinterest for "birthday board" and come up with lots of different ideas and variations. I liked the one with the wooden circle disks, and I found them in a bulk pack at Michaels - here's the package bag in case you go to look for them. There are tons of ideas on how to hook everything together. So go ahead and grab a discarded board and whip yourself up a birthday board.

A Kiss In Your Pocket Does your loved one run after you for a kiss the second you walk out the door? Do they call you at 1 am begging you to come over and kiss them goodnight? Do they stand on the train platform and blow you kisses 30 minutes after your train already left? If so, then this is the perfect Valentines day gift idea for you! Introducing a kiss in your pocket. First, take a picture of yourself blowing a kiss. Then print a bunch of little pictures and use a red marker to draw one heart on the first picture, two on the second and so on.. Punch holes on the end and tie it together with ribbon. No longer will your loved one feel clinically depressed when you're away since they'll have your kiss right in their pocket. Problem solved!

Life {Sweet} Life: {Free Printable} I Love You Because Message Board I was browsing Pinterest the other day when I came across this pin from a content housewife, and knew it was something I couldn't wait to make. Patrick & I used to be great at leaving each other little notes, but it's definitely slowed down lately. I knew this idea was perfect, and something that we'll (hopefully) do on a regular basis. I've been trying to focus daily on all of the little things I'm thankful for. Blessings, big and small, are all around us, and there's so much I take for granted. So this works perfectly with my desire to be more "intentional" in showing my husband just how amazing I think he is and how I appreciate the things he does - no matter how little. And yes, that includes him putting his clothes IN the hamper. If you want to make one, it's quite simple. Enjoy!

"50 Reasons Why I love You" Candy Jar Gift My husband and I are celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary today! I have heard from so many people that a good marriage takes a lot of hard work, but so far, being married to my husband is the easiest thing I have ever done. He has such a big heart and will do anything for his family. He frequently travels for business and works long hours to support and care for us. I feel so fortunate and thankful that because of him I am able to be a stay at home mom to our two boys. He even puts up with all my crafts and latest hobbies. I filled a jar full of 50 Reese's mini cups and on the bottom of each candy, on a dot sticker, I wrote a reason why I love him. The dot stickers were a perfect size (3/4" wide) and I was able to find a pack of over 300 at the dollar store. I imagine that this will sit on his desk and every time he grabs a candy, he will be reminded why I love him. I will never forget our first date on August 25th, 2005.
