Since we're on a super tight budget holidays and celebrations are quite creative around our household and I am so blessed to have a husband who actually put thought and time into what he wanted to do for me... even if it didn't turn out quite right.
He attempted to make me cotton candy.
at home. in Grenada.
that sweet wonderful man.
I love cotton candy probably much more than the average girl... and since it was the "cotton" anniversary it was perfect!
except Grenada is the most humid place on earth. kinda like living in a sauna.
He was so excited to do a DIY project with me & we had a blast covering our entire kitchen in sugar :)
|preparing the solution... I was still clueless as to what he was making.|
|see it's working!!|
|but once we started rolling it it turned sticky :/|
still delicious though! so we ate it like suckers!
|the little sugar droplets on the floor....|
I love that he wanted to do something a bit crazy and diy for me & I did something practical & useful for him, so like us!
I sewed him a new pillowcase because just last week his tore... and I mean, tore beyond repair. He's a rowdy sleeper.
My friend Cat was a genius and brought a little sewing machine down to Grenada and let me try it out!
I found this green fabric in town for $6.95EC a yard (about $3US) and 1 yard was plenty to make a pillow case!
The pillow case is nothing spectacular... a rectangle.
But I did dress it up by using teal thread and sorta monogramming his name on it!
|I remembered to take a picture after he had already slept on it! ha!|
|Lee ♥ done with the sewing machine. lol. would have been better off hand stitching it. |
but o well! life is an adventure.
Happy Anniversary my Lee!! I love you more than words can describe.
