I’m good at making things out of crap. Some of my proudest projects are disposable or recyclable – and I love that. Much like theatre, my creations have a limited run and then are just the memory.

Give me a cardboard box and some paint I will go to town!
So, this year, when Husband and I had a conversation about our anniversary, we decided to scrap the gifts and just make cards. The gift giving just because of the day or year or whatever means we end up with all this junk that is culturing up the house. And what do I need with a steel bowl or whatever? So, making cards for each other was going to be a creative way to celebrate our love and not add to the clutter. And I was sure I would win - not that it was competition but seriously, I had it in the bag.
Then, I got sick and my creative mojo melted along with my feverish snotty self. Even so I whimpered and sniffed myself into the studio and I put together a card that summed up all things that Husband has been to me for the last eleven years – a combination of valium and shock therapy. It wasn’t my best effort but it was better than he would come up with – right?
Husband waited until I went to sleep and then he created a massive card that had arrows and moving parts and pictures of us from random happy moments from the past. AND it even had an emotion barometer that summed up all many personalities of ej. It was brilliant. BRILLIANT!!!
And I'm not showing it you. Sorry to be that vague-booker ass that only gives you pieces of information and won't actually show you the final product but I’m keeping his creation to myself. I will say that Husband won big time.
Which really means I won. Because I was smart enough to say “Um...yes?” when he didn’t propose all those years ago but really only asked me what I would say if he asked me to marry him. So I'm a winner! Yea me! And hIm. He seriously scored big with this one so YEA HUSBAND!!!
My name is ej. I'm a girl. I say that because with the short hair and the short initials, folks aren't always sure. More brilliant insights to who I am in About me
