So a few months ago I posted my version of the Open When... Letters HERE. I have an Etsy shop (HERE) and since posting about my letters I've had a handful of people message me about making them a set. Here is one of those sets of letters!

This year for Valentines day I made my boyfriend a little scrapbook of the two of us. (I also got him a heart shaped cookie from Paradise Bakery, because they are delicious.) I love this little book! I hope you do as well and that it will give you some inspiration. I used valentines paper and ephemera and various love quotes.

I made this scrapbook for my nephew about 2 years ago. I made it just for fun, and then gave it to his mom. It was pretty small and simple but cute. I "categorized" the pages into people Brigham was with. Like his mom, dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

I love snail mail. There is just something special about sitting down and writing down a thoughtful message to someone, sealing it, putting postage on it, and sending it off to the recipient! Also, who doesn't love to receive mail?? I know I love it! Not to mention I love the "crafty" part of snail mail ;) All the cute stationary, postage, and sealing wax. Today I just wanted to post some pictures of a letter I sent to my boyfriend!

My boyfriend used to work the night shift which meant his "lunch" or dinner was at 6 pm and he always liked me to bring him food because he only got about 15 mins to eat. Being the awesome girlfriend I am I would bring him dinner ALL the time! Mostly just fast food stuff. But I wanted to do something extra special for him one day and that is why I made him this heart lunch. When I gave it to him I said "I heart you!" and all his food was in the shape of hearts.

I've already mentioned in an earlier post that one of my older brothers got married this past Christmas. I posted pictures of the bridal shower we threw for his fiancé HERE. My mom, sister, and I made this cute gift basket for the happy couple for their honeymoon. We left it at the place where they were headed, but you could just give it to them as they are leaving too!

This past December The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey came out in theaters. Now (most of) my family are fans of Lord of The Rings (me included in that!) so we were all looking forward to the new movie. My brother, Eric, especially loves them. So just to be the sweet loving sister that I am, I made him a Hobbit themed gift basket to get him excited to see the new movie. I even included midnight premiere tickets for him and some friends! Best sister ever? I think so.

I love Harry Potter. The books, the movies, the character... I love them all! Which should be no secret because the name of my blog is from the Harry Potter books. I hope most of you get that, I'm not really "up to no good"! In fact I would dare to say I'm the opposite. So now that you know I'm a huge Harry Potter nut (not like a crazy one.. just a normal amount of love one person would give to a fictional story) it wont surprise you that I went to Universal Studios in Florida to visit the Wonderful World of Harry Potter. IT WAS AMAZING!! I won't go into any of the details really, but I will say that if you are thinking of going... GO!!!! This is the gift basket I made for my man of all the candy I brought back for him.

I love snail mail! I love receiving and sending mail. My sister lives in a different state and we Facetime each other everyday. Literally, everyday. But we love to send each other stuff in the mail too! Little gifts or just a cute note. Here is the picture of a letter I sent to my sister yesterday and one to her daughter, Kimber, for her first birthday which is next week.

Not too long ago I made this candy bar poster for my boyfriend. He LOVES candy of any kind. My sister also made one for her husband. I don't know why I love these so much! I guess because you don't see them very often anymore? At least I don't.. maybe you do.

I've had three brothers complete LDS missions, and I currently have a brother serving in Italy. He gets home in a month though, YAY! Me and my brother are only a year and half apart so we have always been close. I'm really good friends with my brother's friends too because of all the time they spent at my house. This is just a small post of a package I sent to my brother in Italy, his friend (who is also serving an LDS mission there), and his other friend (who is in the Marines, stationed in Japan).

I am an avid Pinterest-er. I love it, I don't know what people did before Pinterest! I love getting crafting ideas from there. There is a particular picture that I love of all these envelopes that say "Open when...."
I searched all over Pinterest for the source but I couldn't find it! I then turned to google, which also didn't lead me anywhere. But the point of this little story is that the picture gave me the inspiration to do the same for my boyfriend, but I wanted to know what the rest of the letters said. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anywhere that told me so I had to make up my own. As I searched for a source I noticed that a LOT of people repinned this picture and they also wanted to know what the other letters said. I'm going to post the letters I made to hopefully help anyone else who wanted help making their own letters. :)
