My boyfriend knew that I get sad when I leave him, so to cheer me up and to remind me of him he did something lovely.
He got different paper and different coloured pens and wrote lovely little messages on the paper and cut them up and hid them everywhere. There was one in my travel documents so when I went to the ticket desk a little piece of paper fell out and it said “I love you”. there were some in my purse, in my train tickets, in my pockets, in the different parts of my luggage, in the book I was reading, in my money … and just everywhere. I was still sad to be leaving but he made it a happy sad. And I kept every one of these little pieces of paper. It took almost 2 months to find them all.
Then I had an Idea. I went to the store and bought a picture frame, and arranged all the little bits of paper with their messages inside the frame and now I see it every day.
And for a valentine`s day present for him this year I painted some flowers he had given me. I am using watercolour, ink for the outlines and gouache for the background.
