I feel like I've been on craftster forever but I've never posted a single project of mine. However, that's mostly my dad's fault for not fixing my computer. But now, I have a cute new laptop and I can shareeee.
So. My first project(s). I made my boyfriend a bunch of stuff for our two year anniversary, so hey. Here goes.
Sorry about the huge/horrible quality pictures. He has really bad lighting in his room and my flash is scary sometimes.
First, I made him a mix CD with a bunch of songs that:
a) reminded me of him
b) i like to sing when i'm with him to embarass him
c) held a special meaning in our relationship during its MANY stages

I don't have a picture of the actual CD itself, but I colored it with six different shades of blue and green sharpies and I wrote our initials on it. And, the CD booklet has all the lyrics inside, true to CD booklet form.
Next, I gave him a puzzle in a tin. I took a business card magnet and stuck it to some plain white paper that I colored (to match the CD) and wrote our initials on. Then, I cut up the magnet into tiny tiny pieces and mixed them all up in an AOL CD tin, which I also decorated and wrote on.

The puzzle, fully assembled:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/miffyiscrying/12-22-05/123005019.jpg
The back (this is my favorite part):http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/miffyiscrying/12-22-05/123005021.jpg
When I gave it to him, I arranged the puzzle pieces into the shape of a dinosaur. When he opened it, he couldn't figure out why the hell I was giving him a multi-colored dinosaur in a tin. Once I explained it to him, he spent over half an hour trying to figure out how to put the puzzle together.
The next gift was a scrapbook with pages of our favorite things, places, foods, etc. as well as important dates in our relationship and a list of our similarities and differences and goals and all that fun stuff. I'm not going to put up pictures, though, cause there's about thirty of them. However, it was all done in Sharpie. Mostly.
Then, I gave him girlfriend-in-a-box. In a REALLY SMALL box.
Outside (it's not really supposed to have dust particles all over it, but hey. My camera likes to pick out the worst qualities in things and emphasize them):http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/miffyiscrying/12-22-05/123005051.jpg
Inside (I wish I had better pictures, but it has a mini doll of me, a flocked teddy bear, a picture of me, a cutout felt star that I sprayed with my body spray, and a teal colored hair tie):
Then: LOVE TOKEN BOX! This part was awesome because he thinks he's getting all the rewards with the free kisses and such, but it's really me because I'm on the other end of those kisses and such.

^sorry bout that flash :-/
Now. While he was opening/playing with his gifts, I did some rummaging in his closet and found out that my boyfriend was a closet crafter in fifth grade:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/miffyiscrying/12-22-05/123005096.jpg
^me, modeling his wolf mask that he made.
AND THERE WAS ONE MORE GIFT!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v350/miffyiscrying/12-22-05/123005099.jpg
^that's Oscarina and Oscar. I found this a while back:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5843.msg45119#msg45119
and decided I needed one. So, there came Oscar. Oscar was given to my other half for Valentine's day last year. Oscarina is his sexy new girlfriend. She's pink, and I think she's beautiful. Anyway, they like to hold hands.
Aaaand that's all. Thanks for looking and sorry about the huge amount of pictures!
