A Pinterest Birthday Card

Every year, I hear that I’m hard to buy for. Birthday, Hanukkah, Mother’s Day…I’m a challenge. You know what it’s like; we creative types that read a gazillion blogs, we have high standards. We know what’s out there, and if there’s nothing good, we just make it.

I’m pleased to say that I found me a husband that rises to the occasion. No matter how much I say “this year, I don’t want anything,” he knows that I do want a little attention. And for me, there is nothing better than the gift of creative thought.



This year, I’m all wrapped up in my craft book project and like most people, Pinterest is my best friend. So he created a private (uh-hem, how racey!) board called The Amanda Book Project, where he took vintage book covers and doctored the words or images to make them about me. I am sharing a few with you, the few that I can share (wink, wink).


Not only do I have a funny, creative, and expressive husband, but he’s damn good at photoshop.

(PS…Oliver is our 2 and a half year old son. Anyone with a toddler knows that you are just their pawns in the game of life.)

(PPS…For my newer readers, check out what the husband did a few years ago. It got linked to the Brooklyn Flea’s blog!)
