It's Friday! That makes me very happy!
After being out of town for 6 days this week, Mr. Oopsey Daisy comes home today. After battling the sickies, I have not been the best Mom this week. I am so looking forward to having our family together again! And having a little me-time will be nice, too!
Are you ready for another easy peasy Valentine's Day idea?
These candy bar love notes are intended for the Mister in your life...
It's not often that I get to share my handsome hubby with the blogging world, so I am going to take full advantage right now!
Here is the short version of our very own love story:
My sweet husband and I met while I was teaching first grade and he was doing real estate/going to school in Utah. Instead of asking me out, my husband hired me to do secretarial work for his business over the summer. I started "work" (if you can call it that!) on Monday, and we started dating on Friday! And I loved him so much, I even agreed to sit in a freezing cold lake at sunset in frigid temperatures for our engagement pictures!
So we were married. Handsome hubby graduated and secured a job that brought us back to my home in Denver. Little Man joined our family, and we were thrilled! But here's our only problem: Handsome hubby travels a lot for work. That can be hard. Very hard. I am always looking for fun ways to let him know that I am thinking of him while he's away!
I don't know who said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but it seems to be pretty accurate in our marriage! Handsome hubby loves to eat! So I grabbed some of his favorite candy bars and made an arsenal of candy bar love notes! This way, I can grab one and stuff it in his suitcase for him to discover in a hotel later on.
So here is how you can make your own!
YOU WILL NEED:
-- Candy bars
-- Candy bar love note images (provided)
-- Scrapbook paper or colored cardstock
-- Scrapbook supplies (scissors, glue, hole punch, etc.)
-- Embellishing supplies (distressing ink, etc.)
I started out by selecting several of his favorite candy bars at the grocery store.
I created some tags in Photoshop. (Download will be available at the end of the post!). Some of the labels were created to fit a 2-inch circle punch (blue). Some were created just to be regular old tags (yellow). I printed them on scrapbook paper and colored cardstock.
So I got to work with my circle punch!
I mounted them and distressed them a bit.
I wrapped the larger candy bars in scrapbook paper and glued them shut.
Some of the notes are intended to be thoughtful. Some a little more fun. But now I have a bag-full of sweet nothings that I can use to show my husband how much I care!
Which one is your favorite?
Take 5 (my personal favorite!)
And you know if I do something this thoughtful, I should definitely get flowers in return! Ha ha.
How do you celebrate Valentine's Day with your hubby?
Have a very happy weekend!
