When I first read this quote by Iain S. Thomas, it made me cry. Not only did the quote describe the way I feel about my husband, but it reminded me of those first moments after my children were born: when I finally got to meet them. Then I cried again. Anyway, I made the quote into a sign, which I hung in our kitchen, just to give my family a warm little hug this February.
I have not yet succumbed to the washi tape craze, but I want to. My homemade Christmas tags were the perfect excuse, but I held to my green Christmas promise and tried to think of alternatives. How about patterns stamped on strips of paper, ribbon, and sheet music?
I have a thing for personalized gifts. I think it comes from a long childhood of searching the racks of toothbrushes and notebooks and bicycle license plates, always in vain, for the name “Jodie.”
