Mushy Love Stuff

Hello World, it’s been a while, partly because we’ve hosted lots of family and partly because my latest crafty endeavor is currenty a fail due to my novice spray painting skills.  It’s fixable but will take some time.

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve realized that Valentine’s day will be here Tuesday.  My husband and I don’t usually make a big deal out of it.  Not because we don’t realize the importance of keeping up the romance; quite the opposite.  We are an affectionate family and don’t need a holiday to show it.  I got him a few little gifts the other day but while we were out today the girls pointed out another little something that he’d enjoy.  The gift itself isn’t all that romantic but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t make the wrapping romantic.

I’m a fan of plain brown paper embellished to look lovely.  At first I was just going to wrap it in the paper and add a ribbon but then I started thinking about a great quote I came across this week.  I thought it would be nice to add it to the wrapping.  After I wrote the first verse, I thought it looked a little sparse and decided to look up some quotes and fill it up a little more.  I really got into it and didn’t stop until I had it filled up on all sides.  I found a bunch of quotes that were sweet that made me think of my hubby and our relationship.  I’m really happy with how it turned out.  In honor of the holiday, here are the quotes I used.  I hope they remind you of your loved one.
