i used two great ideas for me and my boyfriends anniversary and put them together to make it my own.
first, i saw burstandbloom's xmas advent calendar
and thought "hey, i could make one, but counting down to our anniversary." so here it is, an anniversary advent:
i decided to make them squares instead of circles, and because i'm lazy i painted the insides red instead of putting paper strips in it. check out 14 it's batman!
this is the last door, 17. it's my favorite:
in the inside of the advent instead of little gifts i put in riddles. each one is a riddle that if he guesses he gets that present for that day. here's an example:
i come in fall colors.
in a box or a bag.
i melt when i'm hot,
two words that rhyme are my name.
what am i?
the answer is reese's pieces. they are is favorite candy.
and then i saw patty_o_furniture's awesome cookies
. me and my boyfriend have this inside joke and i thought these cookies would be perfect. though, he doesn't like sugar cookies so i had to improvise with chocolate chip. it was pretty tough but i think it turned out pretty good:
the bottom left one is mine, it's boy briefs heh.
technically he can't start the advent until june 1st, but the cookies are for today. along with a polymer clay figure of michael douglas in falling down (his favorite movie), a mix cd of 80's cheeseball love songs, a zelda ipod cover, and a french toast casserole (french toast is his favorite food). mmmm.
so thanks burstandbloom and patty_o_furniture!
