Wow, Look What My Husband Made For Me!!

Ok, I know it doesn't maybe look like much to most of you, but for my husband to sit down and do anything craft related really is a big deal!!

My birthday is July 4th, and my husband is away from us this year, so he has been pretty homesick, and we miss him too!! Anyway, with some more of this sort of thing made for the kids too came a box filled with lots of sea goodies....starfish, sand dollars, shells and some other sweet gifts for me. He is so thoughtful. I couldn't help but share something that he gave me from the sweetness in his heart and made with his own two hands. It's worth more to me than any expensive piece of jewelry or anything else that he could have bought me. I know I am so sappy, but what can I say.... handmade things are priceless treasures : )

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY EVERYONE!!!!!!
