So, I've been over the whole boyfriend situation before. But again... he is going to school halfway across the country but we will both be home for Christmas. I want to make him some kind of calendar but I can't figure out how.
I started the jar of 365 things (not my idea, found somewhere on here)... with just random quotes and proverbs and fortunes and stuff but I am having a really tough time.
I don't really just want to make a calendar with pictures of us either. I would like it to be a bit more personal.
Any ideas?

What about a calendar with drawings or your photography.
Or go out and take a bunch of pictures of some sort of theme...
places you have been together or memories..
you could take a picture of where you had your first date, kiss ect.
or just inside jokes or things you think he would appreciate.
then it doesn't have to be of you two but it is still personal.

i need help again Cheesy
i have made my sister
a sculpture.
a crocheted doll (based off an inside joke.)
painted her a box/shrine thing.
and also made her an advent calendar.
i'm also working on a movie poster (another inside joke)

its going to be a small christmas and i want her to feel loved..
so does anyone know any fast gifts i could throw together Cheesy

i know i asked a similar question awhile back..and someone suggested a journal...
and i put  a homemade one as one of the days of her advent calendar.

She LOVES twilight, dogs and any other animals, the kids she babysits, her own dog, and the colors blue and green...she also loves anything small and cuddly Cheesy

if anyone could help me...
i asked my mom for more ideas but she said i had already made enough...
i beg to differ!!

Oh! And does anyone know any quick crochet patterns that i could modify to be twilighty?
