Open your heart
and take us in,
Love – love and me.
~ W.E. Henley
Mr. Catered Crop and I have been married for 30 years. I know, crazy, right? He leaves his socks all around the house. He loses his keys. He snores . . .
So why in Heaven's name would I make him a Valentine's card that says he's amazing in every way?
Well, because I forget to turn out the lights. I never take out the trash. And I lose my phone charger.
He forgives me all my little quirks and he's my constant and reliable friend. He lets me know I could never disappoint him and he will always love me.
He's amazing in every way that matters!
So . . . I made Mr. Catered Crop some more goodies.
From some cheapy Ikea spice jars like these (yes, he appreciates frugal):
I made this little jar to hold some Twizzler bites.
My daughter loves to give me crafty things which is really a throw-down challenge to make something. Since she's so insanely creative, it's quite a serious challenge. This Christmas she gave me a bag of colorful pompoms from Anthropologie. Turned out kind of cute, don't you think? Bam!
Oh, and, you know he's "Just my Type," so, for giggles and grins, I photographed my goodies for my Tom with a toy typewriter I found at a flea market find recently. (Love them flea market finds!) This was just like the one my Grandma Black kept at her house for us.
You're welcome Catered Crop. Sorry I ate the lollipops.
Now, I love a good lollipop. (You notice, there aren't any lollipops in my pictures. I ate them all!) But, as you can see from my card and Twizzler jar, you can use this set for other things besides just lollipops.
I used two other new Die-namics. You can never have too many hearts, right?
And, this incredibly juicy black ink is new this month.
Here are the other goodies available in the My Favorite Things Boutique today.
Other ingredients include My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pad, Vintage Lace, Vintage J & P Coats Seam Binding, Ikea RAJTAN Spice Jar, Anthropologie bag of pompoms, and Twizzlers Bites (5 ounce box).Pin It
