Inspiration Made Me Do It

From time to time some days, I get spurts of inspiration that is spontaneous, and sometimes not. Since I am preggers, these moments usually make me well up and text something loving to my hubby or look at wedding pictures, or something sappy like that. I have been needing another black and white print for my collage and then BAM! The stars aligned, and with a pop and a fizz, I had and idea for a new wall hanging (or two).

It's so simple. 

First, I pinned this:

I love it, but I wanted my own personal message. I thought and I thought. After a few brief minutes, some hand wringing and beard stroking (hey, I am pregnant, hair is everywhere) I got it! 

Back story:
My hubby and I hung out all the time when we were kids, and it was one of the fondest memories that I had. I couldn't have imagined "dating" him. At the time, I thought he was my buddy, how could I kiss him? Time went on and we drifted apart, and I missed him. I wished for him. I...loved him? So basically, I have loved him most of my life. Real love. Love that sometimes you hate that you are in, and sometimes wonder why you got so lucky. 

I jumped on AutoCAD and typed away...

Then I cut...

Then I was happy! 

I printed on recycled scrap paper too! 

..and I can never forget my littlest inspiration
