What a Man

Yesterday I texted my husband at work and told him that when females menstruate, our bodies produce extra chocolate metabolizing enzymes and that if we don't increase our chocolate intake to compensate, the enzymes will actually cause heart damage. I was afraid he'd say something silly like "enzymes aren't used up in a chemical reaction" or "that's not true" to which I was going to reply "typical patriarchal western allopathic answer...you think you know more than me about how my own body works??? It was in Mother Moon Magazine!"

But I didn't have to. You know why? Because he texted back "I suggest chocolate daily as needed. That's my rx." What a man.

Do you think he believed me?!?! 

Either way he deserves this. So I made him a Valentine for a manly man.

I made it from a 12" x 12" piece of plywood, some corner brackets, and a small paint can lid.

First I stained the wood with Minwax wood stain in Early American.
Then I attached the brackets and paint can lid with thumbtacks to spell out "love" in a Robert Indiana style layout. 
Doesn't get much easier than that. Better go eat my medicine now.


  1. Brilliant. I am so using that line.

  2. Me too, definitely stealing that line! Love that valentine, great idea!

  3. Me too! This looks so simple and I bet if I made that for by hubby - he'd fall over backwards in shock! :D

  4. I love this decoration, your blog is fab very helpful;)

  5. I sure do wish you would post more often.
