DIY :: I'm so glad you were born...

I saw this idea over on Oh Happy Day yesterday, and knew I had to do something like it for my hubby's birthday today. Because it was so last minute, I obviously didn't have time to have everyone mail me their thoughts. Instead, I sent out emails and texts to friends and family asking them why they were glad Andrew was born. I then made an 11x17 poster that said "I'm So Glad You Were Born". Next I printed out everyone's contributions on individual 3.5x2 in. cards and put them in little kraft paper envelopes and sealed with numbers that I also printed. It's his 29th birthday, so I only put up 29 envelopes, but there were over 40 total. So after he opened the 29, he still had a few more to read. I loved hearing him laugh and ooh and aah at what everyone had to say. Needless to say, he LOVED it!

I just stumbled upon your blog as I was trying to send the link of where I got the idea of the poster for my daughter. Yours came out so much better!
My daughter is attending BYU and it was her first birthday away from home, so I wanted to make sure she got tons of love from her friends and family back home.
Here is how it turned out:http://simplybrooke.wordpress.com/. Definitely not even half as cute as yours....but it made her happy.
Keep up with the wonderful blog...I have officially bookmarked you on my computer :)
