anniversary.

Today is my anniversary. :) Here is the card I made for my husband. Remember, the AC is still not working in my house, so I couldn't use all the crafty...expensive...piling up stuff I have at home to create a spectacular card. Instead, in order to stay alive and breathing, I had to make this card at the air-conditioned starbucks with a pack of colored pencils I had in my bookbag.



Anyway, about my hair...no one even noticed, which is probably because I keep tying it back. I can't help it. I will post pictures though...when it looks somewhat decent.

As for my shames:

SHAME #3

I'm a shop-a-holic, especially this week. I guess, I keep justifying my wild spending with the fact that it was my birthday and it's now my anniversary. It's like one week for a massive shopping spree!!!

Let's see, just recently, I bought:

1. Two pairs of shoes from shoes.com (a pair of converse and some sanuk sidewalk surfer...I think I might return the sanuks though because they don't fit quite nicely)

2. A mess of stuff from aeropostale.com (cardigans and a jean jacket)

3. From Mervyns -stuff for my husband, sunglasses, and bermuda shorts. They got me with the spend 50 dollars and get a 10 dollar rewards card. How could I pass that one up???

4. From Macy's- Estee Lauder perfume, crocs, and m.a.c make-up

5. Amazon.com- madeleine pan. YUMMMMY!

I need to stop...NOW! :)

Happy anniversary! That is the sweetest little card ever. You should go into business. Do you have an Etsy shop? If you don't, you should get one and sell stationary or something, so that your cute little things can be available to the public!

Erika said...

I LOVE your card - so sweet and romantic! I made something like this w/ water color as a wedding gift for my hubby, but it didn't come out quite as nicely as yours. I still like it, though!

Oh, and happy anniversary - can you say how long (or maybe you did and I missed it)? The things you bought sound so fun, glad you're enjoying your special days!
