Post-it Notes Heart
Oh, how I love thee… let me POST the ways! Last week I was going through a box and came across a stack of Post-it notes. Each one had a sweet message my husband had written to me while we were dating. He had my roommate let him in and secretly put them up all over my apartment while I was busy at work. Seeing these notes brought back a flood of great memories!
I thought it would be fun to write some notes to him to remind him how important he is to me. I picked up a pack of Post-it Notes the next time I was out and pulled out my red and purple Sharpies. I know it’s a little girly, BUT since Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I figured it would be perfect.
It was really easy to come up with a list of reasons why I love my husband. Some were serious and some were a little silly… like one that referred to him saving us $500 by watching a YouTube Video. I have to share this with you all because I think it is so awesome! Somehow, a big dent ended up on the back trunk part of my car. (I swear I did NOT back into a pole- it looked like some giant football crashed into it!!) Anyway, I had it assessed at the collision repair shop and they gave me an estimate of $500 to fix it. Yipes! Once I heard that, I figured that dent was in for life. My brilliant husband decided to do a little research about our problem online and thanks to a few YouTube videos, he got the idea to use our PLUNGER to pull the dent out. That is right, our $2.98 plunger got the job done and pulled the dent right out! Good job, honey!
To make my Post-it notes just a little more special, I decided to form them into the shape of a heart. You can see by my picture how easy it was- you could make yours nearly any size. I was thinking it would be really cool if you had a glass enclosed shower to put them on the outside of your shower so they can be read while showering.
This is a super inexpensive and easy way to remind your spouse that they are loved! This heart shape works perfect for Valentine’s Day or your anniversary, but I think it would be fun to try different shapes and Post-it Notes colors for all the different holidays. A green shamrock, a pastel Post-it egg, or what about a Post-it watermelon for the summer? The possibilities are endless! Just be creative and let your sweetheart know how much you care.
