My Valentine to Chris - A Movement In Time And Space — LiveJournal
Moving through time and space in our own way
My Valentine to Chris
Hey, look at me! I was imaginative last night! :-p

I wanted to make Chris a Valentine's Day card for a little while now, since I haven't had a real chance to buy anything for him. Plus, he is a hard person to shop for. LOL Anyway, Chris also has a hard time believing that he is a hottie. He can't see how freaking adorable / sexy he is, but I suppose that's understandable since we all see our own faults so much easier than others.

Well, most of us. I see some people's faults clear as day and yet they can't see it themselves...but that's for another post.

So, I came up with an idea of a card that highlights Chris' attributes and reasons that I love him so.

But, you know what? I'm the biggest procrastinator in the world. No, really. I waited until 7pm on Valentine's Day to start working on the card. Luckily, for once, Chris' hours lately have him getting home 9pm or later. Usually much later. Give me an inch of padding and I'll pretend it's a foot.

Anyway, I print out some of my favorite pictures of Chris. Six of them. I love these pictures - they show off how handsome, sexy and amazing he is. I then took six plain white greeting cards and glued them together to make an accordian fold card with 7 panels.

Then I decorated the front panel of the card, the part that would show when it was all folded up. I simply covered it with some pretty patterned paper and found a journaling panel on which I wrote my message.

The rest of the panels were comprised of the pictures and one or two sentences of what that pic represents for me. You can see them, if you're interested, in my Valentine's Day Card Gallery.

Be prepared for hot pictures of a sexy bald man! :-D

um, I'm not sure exactly what that means - but in an Australian accent, how can it be anything but good? :)

Fabulous Priya!

That is an awesome v-day card! And he is an absolute cutie.

Tell him I said so. ;)

Awesome. :)

I once gave Alex a long letter stating 100 reasons why I love him. It covered four pages, hehe.

But your idea is much more creative.

Thanks Minnie. :-)

I enjoyed making it so much. I'm pretty sure he enjoyed getting it.

What was the occasion for your letter to Alex and how long did it take you to write it? LOL
minn From: minn Date: February 19th, 2006 02:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
The occasion was... none. :) It was a spontaneous, no-occasion letter, hehe. I think it took me an entire day to write the whole thing. ;)

Priya that is a grand idea! I am so going to steal it and file it away in my mind for later. You two make me smile, it is so wonderful to see two people so in love and happy together :)

Gorgeous card Priya, your husband is lucky to have you.

I got Colin some of his favorite chocolates, they cost me $18.00 holy cow is what I said, but oh well he's worth it. I also made him a card that I will share eventually.

What a great idea to make your card for Chris, very nice! Glad you had a good day, your girls are adorable as well, but you already know that.

This is so beautiful and so deeply meaningful -- which is what an expression of love should be. Thank you for sharing it. You have inspired me.
