for him

This was my little secret Valentine that I was working on for Ben last week (I am just a little late in sharing it as I was a bit hesistant). It is a 7'x10' heart cut out of corrugated board and painted with acrylics. I don't really paint, but this little project was very fun for me. Maybe it is because I was making it for my Ben...

I am thankful to God for the cross and His goodness in providing me such a loving husband... I love my Ben lots!!!

I am excited because we have another fun weekend planned, so see everyone on Monday!!!

  8. That is wonderful. Good for you!!!

    PS - you should totally paint. Buy some little 6x6 canvases and get busy. Paint up exactly what you made here and I'll buy every one. :)

  20. Wowsers, Woman!!! That was so wonderful. You could make it into a little book like Emily Martin did with her hedgie book from last Valentine's day and sell it so that every one can have it and read it to those they love... Or you can just keep it especially for you and your ben only (and everyone who is blessed enough to get to read it here on your blog). I love how cute you are in the pictures :O)
    Love, Susan

  23. i know it's already been said, but that is the best idea for a book. seriously. get Liz on it at 32Flavors, and I'm sure she could hook you up with a publisher to trot out the idea. you are so talented, and the book has such a wonderful message!
