what I made...

It's Monday! What do you have planned for this week? We have the day off today...like many of you I'm sure. I'm hoping to get some good crafting time in today but we'll see.

Today I thought I'd show you what I made Todd for Valentine's Day. When Todd was on his last nights rotation we would often write each other notes just filling each other in on what was going on or saying I love you. We fell out of that habit when he went to days so since he's on nights again I thought I'd make a new notebook. For this notebook I used my Bind-it-All, some fantabulous paper (unfortunately I don't remember the manufacturer), some of my Just Rite stamps, and Beate's layout for this week. I wanted it to more guyish than girlish and I think I definitely managed that one. I was particular with what words in the patterned paper showed as I wanted to express our relationship...joy, unique, home, journey...all those things are part of our relationship (and did ya see the word "escape"? yep, I feel like that sometimes, too! lol!). The solid card stock colors are Always Artichoke and Not Quite Navy and the hearts and birds are from the SU! set Love You Much.

So? Whatcha think? I'm excited to get back into the habit of using a notebook. What about you? What did you do or make for your honey?

Stay tuned for some more Sweet N Sassy Stamp cards and a new limeLIGHT sketch and product focus is coming up later this week too! So exciting!

Alright...go...have a stamp happy day! See ya later!

What a neat idea! Then you will have those little notes to look back on when you're children are grown & remember what was happening in your life & the love you shared with your hubby!

I love the idea of a notebook. I like to slip little notes in his lunchbox, pants pocket, wallet.. etc. sometimes it takes him a couple of days to find them.

Chrissy D said...

Love your notebook, Lorie! Great colors.

Donna said...

What a fun idea! I'm not sure my husband would use it though. I made Tom a card and bought him his favorite candy, peanut M&Ms. I cased your Eagle card from the other day. I've posted my take on my blog. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
Hugs,
Donna
