Book of love

For romantic occasions, I usually attempt to think of something creative to give my husband. There are two reasons for this: 1) I want it to be more meaningful than something I can pick up in five minutes at the mall, and 2) my husband is very non-materialistic (a wonderful quality) and doesn't always have a long list of gift ideas for me.

So, this year for our anniversary, I covered a little chipboard book that I found in one of my favorite stores, Archivers. Inside, I stuck down little pieces of paper, stickers, and other embellishments, as well as one of our wedding photos, all designed to tell Bill 100 things I love about him. (Thanks, Marianne, for sharing this idea at Pickled Pear Lane!)

It was quite a bit of work, but I'd wanted to try this type of thing of a while, so I'm glad I did it, and—most importantly—my husband is pleased with the result.

Hey, Alison! Thanks for the comment! :u) I didn't realize you were a blogger (although I should've known). I love your gift idea - I'll have to file that one away...

isn't it great to be able to share the reasons you love someone! Who doesn't want to hear that? So glad I could help and congratulations on celebrating 2 years!

Thanks, Anna, though the idea was definitely not mine. :-) Thanks again, Marianne! And thanks for the congrats, too!
