Him: I dunno. Maybe a CD?
Him: Or this one [usually very technical, specific and expensive using jargon like F-stop or mm or focal length or gigabyte or other similar what-have-you] thing with these specs.
Me: (to myself) Yah, I'm not buying and/or ordering that. I don't even know what 'specs' ARE. And I would totally get the wrong one. He knows it and so do I.
But, this Valentine's Day I decided to make a little giftie. I got the idea from the illustration I did for the Illustration Friday challenge last week.
And I think he liked it.
Things I learned:
1) Try to have your project done more than 15 minutes before he gets home from work. It's less stressful that way. And it's also dry by that time. Not that I would know. On second thought, why not even finish it a day or two early?
2) Sewing scissors? Really?
3) Mat board is very thick. And I can't cut a straight line. I hope he didn't notice.
