    Your "love" fabric is totally cracking me up. Last weekend we went through 3 years worth of mail/bills/etc and finally got everything organized (hangs head in shame). Hubby INSISTED on having a folder labeled "love" in the filing cabinet. There isn't anything in it except for the birthday card he recycles every year and re-gives me. Haha! Don't know why, but your post made me think of that. Great project!

    I love it! Being a words of affirmation girl myself- I think it's great you are trying to speak your husband's language!

    This is such a great idea. I envy your creativeness. I am going to search for something like this at a garage sale or goodwill. This would make a terrific gift also! That book is on my list to read. I have heard wonderful things about it.

    Oooohh…loving this… so glad you saved it before it was picked up – I never thought of scouring on trash pick up day… you never cease to inspire and amaze me with your "100% constantly thinking of ways to create" attitude! I love the magnet picture and little notecard – super, super fun. Oh, the "Five Love Language" book totally changed my hubby – he learned how to give back rubs to my liking after reading that book – the best gift I ever gave him – ha! He told me that if anything ever happens to him before our girls get married that he is "requiring" them to read two books before they get married – that one and "Sacred Marriage".

    Ok, this project covers so many areas. How to be creative … how to recycle … how to enrich your marriage … how to be stretched (by finding a way to do what you know blesses your dh, but doesn't come naturally to you) … how to start & end a day right. I'm inspired and encouraged!

    What a great idea! I love it most because "words of affirmation" is my love language too. Now if only I could get Tripp to speak my language…

    Wonderful idea! The '5 Love Languages' is an amazing book. Your husband will be so very blessed by this special show of love. Thanks for sharing your idea!

    I like that! I'm thinking I really need to figure out a way to get my hubs to read that book.

    I love, love, love it! : ) And I am totally in the same boat, Tim. : ( And no… if he's anything like me, you could say it 3 times in the same week and I would be happy as a clam!

    Still, I just wish I looked at things the same way you do. What potential in something in the trash!

    This is awesome. And I *guess* you could give him two hooks. If he's good, right? :D

    You are awesome, love the "love" fabric! I need to do something like that for Jim. I think his love language is split between words of affirmation and acts of service. Mine is quality time, and he really doesn't get that yet…after 9 years! Argh…We are working on it lol!

    Soooo great! It's funny how the simplest of compliments go so far with husbands! It's such a sweet "shrine" to him!

    Our husbands share a primary love language. I painted a wooden box for his birthday one year and filled it with slips of silver-backed cardstock, sealed with gold-and-silver heart stickers. On the slips were dated statements I'd been jotting on a notepad throughout the year: everything from "4/6/06 ~ I love the way your eyes crinkle when you smile" to "8/15/07 ~ Watching you read to our baby with such expression and tenderness makes me so grateful God gave you to me. What a blessing you are!" He kept the box on his desk at work and got to open one (or more) whenever he was having a bad day.

    That is so darn cute…I have the perfect spot in my home for it if you'd like to send it my way…OK I'll just keep a look out for one to make myself…Love the look of the fabric!! Very Cute!

    This is a great idea. I love that you turned something that "urked" you into a way to affirm and love your husband. That is positive creativity if I've ever seen some. :)

    I love it. It is cute how you used it to speak your husbands love language. I just learned the Love Languages a couple of weeks ago from our speaker for our MOPS meeting. She was from Marriage Matters. I love crystal knobs too.

    Love this idea! I plan on making one for my kids and put it in their room. I am this thinking that whenever I see them do something good I will write them a goodie note. It will be great to put their backpacks on and any other stuff they might want to put in there. It will help build their self esteem and a great way to show how proud we are of them. I can even tell their friends about it too and tell them that they can put something positive about my kids on there. Thanks for the awesome idea!
