52 Things I Love About You

I made this for my boyfriend. It’s the most perfect gift for Valentine’s, Birthday, Anniversary, or just because…

I created a template using Adobe Illustrator, measured the size of the card and filled in the type within. Once printed on card stock, I cut out each square by hand. I glued them to the cards using a thin layer of basic mod-podge, but you could also use rubber cement for a faster drying time.

A few people have been asking if I hand wrote the sayings. I’ve decided to provide a link to the font I used, it’s called Mari & David

I recently was made aware of an original source to this project, I in no way ever took full credit for coming up with the idea myself, I just wanted to share what I made for my boyfriend. Details on how to make this craft can be found here: http://www.52reasonsiloveyou.com/

Childhood Toys

I’ve recently been forced to sort through a bunch of my childhood items that were in storage at my parents place, now that they’re moving, it was time to downsize and get rid of a lot of toys I had been storing away.

This post is not about the toys I’ve given away, but it’s about the one’s i’ve decided to keep, because they were a big part of my childhood and i’m still attached to them….even at the age of twenty-six….

Meet Pound Puppy, Pooh Bear and Glo Worm.

What’s your childhood toy or item? A bear? A blanket?

I’ve had Pound Puppy since I was a toddler and he travelled around the world with me, I used to use him as a pillow for my little head. As for Pooh Bear, I think he was given to me at a very young age, he’s super old and very worn. And lastly the ever trendy Glo Worm was just cool to use as a night light every time I went to sleep.
