10 Reasons Why I Love My Husband

This year, we will be married 10 years. That's an insane amount of time.  That is 1/3 of my life! Here are the top 10 reasons why I love my husband! 

1)  He is the best father!
He takes such great care of our children. They love him to the moon! I love him for that!

2) He is supportive 
When I decide to attempt working another business when most businesses I have tried flopped, he supported me. He didn't complain that I was wasting money. Now that I am succeeding, it's so exciting to see him so excited with me! I love him for that!

3) He takes care of our needs 
He works hard every day to support our family. He may not like his job, but he knows that he needs to work in order for us to pay our bills. We never go without.
I love him for that!

4) He is thoughtful 
He will always try to do things for me or others that he thinks would make us happy. He will bring surprises home just because. He loves to help people in need when he sees them. I love him for that!

5) He is affectionate. 
He is always hugging and kissing me. Showing his love. He loves to cuddle and spoon. I love him for that! 

6) He is funny
He has the best personality ever. Even when he is serious, he can be funny. I love to laugh and he makes me laugh! I love him for that!

7) He loves me
He loves me when I am not the most lovable person in the world. He never stops loving me. I love him for that!

8) He doesn't mind coming home to a messy house
He is very understanding when I tell him that I had a rough day and did not get a chance to clean the house. He doesn't even mind if I didn't prepare dinner! Many times he will go out of his way to pick dinner up! I love him for that!

9) He takes care of me
If I am ever in a time of need or pain, he is there to hold my hand and help me however he can. When I was pregnant with the girls, he would come home from work and cook dinner and clean because I was too sick. I love him for that!

10) I just do
How could I not love him? I seriously stop most days and look at him and just want to hug and kiss him and share with him how much I love him. It's almost like my love tank will burst if I don't say it. I look at him and our family and our comfortable life and appreciate it. I love him more than I can even express in words. He is the best thing to ever happen to me. I can't wait to grow old together! 

I love you, baby! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Tutorial: Felt Fortune Cookie Valentines

Hi there! I am back again with a new tutorial! I hope you like it! OK, so to make these super easy adorable Valentines, you will need the following supplies:
  • Felt (I used red but you can use any color you want, I also used 3 sheets to make 18 Valentines)
  • Ribbon
  • Pipe cleaners (you will need about 3 sticks to make 18)
  • Hot glue gun with lots of glue!
  • Scissors
  • Plain white paper (2 sheets for 18)
  • Valentine's Day stamp ( I found mine in the craft section of Wal-Mart and it was only $1!)
  • Stamp Pad
  • Pen
First things first, you need to create your "fortunes". I did this by stamping a sweet little stamp many times on my paper, then I signed them (love, so and so) and cut them out. They ended up being about 2-2.5 in by 3-4 in.


Next you need to fold them in half hot dog style and in half again to get them to be the correct
"fortune" size.

Now we move on to the felt. I cut my felt in half hot dog style then cut those pieces into 3 equal pieces. Next I cut out my circles, I free-handed them but you could definitely use a template to make a perfect circle. I found that they worked out a little better the more oval they were. My circles measured about 4" in diameter.

After you have your circles cut out, you can cut your pipe cleaners. Cut them to fit a little smaller than the diameter of the circle. Then hot glue them down along the middle of your circle.

Next cut out some ribbon (about 6" long) and create a loop by gluing one side down at a time.

Fold your circle in half so that the pipe cleaner and ribbon are in the middle and hot glue across the top to close. Make sure you leave enough room to slide in your fortune!

Slide in your fortune.

Fold your Cookies! Bend them in half so that they look like real fortune cookies!

Tada, you are done!


A tip I have for you, create an assembly line, especially if you are making a lot of them! It makes it go by super fast!

**Free Printable** Care instructions for Boutique clothing.

I cant believe how long it has been since I last blogged! I am not a very good blogger!

Anyway, today I created a simple little sheet with multiple care instructions on it for you to have for free! I just print them off on 8.5x11 card stock then cut them out just like a business card and add it to all of my clothing shipments!

There is nothing worse than not including care instructions with your package!

Just in case you didn't know. For all of the clothing I make. I recommend to wash cold and hang to dry. Drying can shrink the clothing, but it also leaves the fabric with a different texture and it can mess up ruffles! I usually wash all of my daughters made by me clothes together so that it is easier to remember to not dry them! I also recommend that you use a hot iron and press the clothes to make them look even better!

On to the free printable!
