Valentine's gift

So. This project is a little late but I think it would work for Father's Day, Birthdays, etc.
I purchased this baseball card display and instead of filling it with baseball cards... I scrapped 16 cards about why I love my husband or cheesy things about our love and on the backs wrote messages. Now he can have those messages to keep in an envelope and fill the display with  his favorite baseball cards and hang it in his classroom.
But of course, he could keep the cards there if he wanted.
You could do this for children... and use mementos... or anything else.
Have fun! And let me know is you take this idea and run with it. I'd love to see what you come up with.

Happy Crafting!

Do you wanna know how much I love my family?!

I had to find the hole, stuff the veg inside, and then tear up the skin and rub seasoning under it. This is not something I have ever done. I have cooked chicken, but have never done the yuckiest parts -- until the other day. But! Because I love my little family I sucked it up and did it. I hope to never do it again... but there it is. And p.s. home roasted chicken... very good.

You know on the new P&P they eat boiled potatoes when Collins comes to visit? They look so yummy, don't they? I finally broke down and made them. I want you to know something: They are as good as they look.

Peel yellow potatoes and cut any big ones. Boil in water with peppercorns, (plenty of) salt, and a bay leaf until fork tender. Drain. Melt butter and pour over potatoes. Season with salt, pepper and fresh, finely-chopped parsley and enjoy. YUM!!!!!

Let me know if you try them and what you think!
