I love you because...

I found this on pinterest and fell in love with the idea! What a perfect way to keep a marriage fresh and unique. 
The frame came from Marshall's for $7 and the pearls from Joann's for $1.50. I had everything else. Not a bad price tag for such a cute craft.  

I made these little rosette flowers out of an old t-shirt and embellished them with pearls. 

I also velcroed the pen to the back so it doesn't get misplaced. 

Before I even finished the project I came home from work one day to my first message from my hubby. So glad he's actually going to be using it! 

I couldn't find any scrapbook paper that I liked so just went with a solid slate blue. The nice thing is if I find some down the road it wouldn't be hard to just print a new sheet.

Lion Cake

I found this post in my blog drafts and can't believe I never posted it! This was a cake I made for my avid hunter neighbor (who is now 71). One of his greatest adventures in life was hunting lions in Africa! This is a great cake idea for the lover of animals and the ones who like to have them stuffed :)

Charity Never Faileth

This past summer Tyler decided on his own that he wanted to start a lemonade stand and give all his proceeds to a children's hospital. Completely shocked I asked why and his response was, "all kids deserve to live!". He almost seemed a little offended that I even had to ask. lol
So I helped him make the lemonade and gave him a little station at the bottom of the driveway. He earned about $30 and today we finally mailed it off (really late, I know).

After some research we decided to send his donation to the UC Davis Children's Hospital - Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy program. The funds are used to directly enhance the children's stay at the hospital with toys, art supplies, entertainment, etc. We felt that this would make a bigger impact from such a small donation. 

I'm so proud of my eight year old son for coming up with this act of kindness on his own. With this I made my New Years resolution - do more charity/humanitarian work. It's something I can do with my family and we can all benefit from it. 
Isn't it nice when the young ones set the example for us adults! 

If you are interested in making a contribution to this charity please mail donation to:
