  • Turned fail into win

    The other evening my wife and I were sitting outside talking and having a cool drink. She mentioned the days getting longer and just as I was about to launch into an explanation of the summer solstice I remembered that we got married on that day. It was our anniversary and she had said nothing all day. I sheepishly told her "Happy Anniversary" and she looked at me blankly. I could tell that she too had forgotten by the look on her face. I was one up!
    She went to the fence to talk to the neighbor and I went to the shop where I quickly cut a wordart fridge magnet that said "I love you". When she came back in I gave it to her. Now I was two up.
    This made me think of an idea. I'll make up several of these and sell them as Husband Survival Packs. Buy it now and put it away for an emergency. When you need a fast gift but have forgotten the occasion you're prepared. ha ha ha

                Only down side with your idea is 95% of craft fair shoppers are women so marketing to men won't cut it. Just my 2 cents.

                  I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                  I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                  First off how thick is the board you cut?
                  When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                  that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                  for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                  I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                  Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                  Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
