anigraham:

Did some “smashbooking” this weekend.  It’s been a while and I managed to get quite a bit in.  It also gave me a chance to organize all my craft boxes!

I’m sad as I had to stop as I ran out of glue!  I used up one and a half glue sticks ha ha.

wolfyiam2014 said: I was looking for thing to make LDR a little easier and I found the "open when..." letter and thought it was really cool so I started making them for my girlfriend, but I end up stuck and I was hoping you maybe able to help me out. I'm stuck on "we are fighting and its my fault/your fault", "you're bored/need a little funny", "youre feeling like crying/sad" I just dont know what to say or put in them. please help me out -Kyle

my-open-when:

Open When letters are a great idea for LDR. Your girlfriend will absolutely love them. 

We are fighting- For this one, I put two small envelopes inside of the bigger one and labeled them with “Open When.. it’s your fault” and “Open When… it’s my fault.” Of course, you don’t have to do that but it’s just what I did. For when it’s their fault, I wrote about how I won’t be mad for long, told him how good we are together, and that we are worth much more than a stupid fight. I have it tagged under “mine” on my page as well. For when it’s your fault, I told how even though I messed up and it may seem that I don’t love them as much, I continue to love them more and more each day. I also said how if they point out my error, I will do my best to fix it.

You’re bored- You can get really creative with this one! I put a bucket list in one that was all about what I want us to do together. It depends on what things she’s into as well. I’ve heard of some people adding in crosswords with clues such as, “Where did we first meet?” and I think that is a fun idea as well. I have also seen people add in mix cds or dads for them to watch. 

You need a little funny- For mine, I put in a bunch of pick up lines, two Calvin and Hobbes comic strips, and a bunch of funny posts on tumblr that I had cut out. I have heard of people adding in whoopie cushions, funny cards, and inside jokes, which are always fun. You just need to find out what makes her laugh and find a way to incorporate it into your letter!

You’re sad- Well, on tumblr you can search tags for reasons to be happy, write a letter telling that you hope their day gets better, pictures of the two of you together, and a few quotes would be good. The letters are always best because even if you’re not there at the moment your words will be.
