So this is a quick little project I whipped up at about 4 this morning. My fiance and I just got engaged on MLK day (so exciting!) so we agreed that this year we were not going to do gifts and just save money for our wedding. But  I couldn't stand the thought of not getting him ANYTHING, so I made a little shrine from a movie case.



Blank Check is about the lamest movie out there, I know. And if you are wondering why I chose this case or why I didn't decorate the outside, there is a reason! We both loved it when we were kids, and the first time he ever came over to my house to meet my family, we watched it that night upon finding it in a box in the storage room.  It just so happens that our first kiss was during the movie. (Lame!)









Everything is made from recycled material found around the house and leftover scraps of paper, so I spent no money on this whatsoever. It turned out pretty cute, I thought!

It also has some hidden meanings. The little charm with the snow flake represents our song, Love Like Winter, by AFI, which is the song Davey Havok, the lead singer of AFI dedicated to us; Kevin proposed to me to at their concert and had the band in on it!

The Mickey Mouse charm represents how we met. I wear a Mickey Mouse watch everyday that I have worn since I was 7 or 8. He noticed it one day and asked me if I had read The Da Vinci Codebecause of a reference to a Mickey Mouse watch and led to a 3 hour long conversation.

And then the quote: "If I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned, dancing through the night with you."

Upon our first meeting because of the watch, I also just happened to be drawing a picture of Meat Loaf, my hero, on my biology notes. Kevin now has it framed. So Meat Loaf brought us together! And then the dancing quote fits for the fact that we dance in the living room Pulp Fiction style almost every night. lol. Freaks.

And lastly, I make cards for EVERY holiday but this year I just ran out of time. I wanted something to put with his gift so I revised my Christmas card into this:



All together!:



Thanks for looking!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

This is so cute! You're craftiness still just blows me away. And apparently your house is like a freakin crafters treasure trove since you're always just using stuff from around the house and never buying anything lol And you guys just sound so totally geeky and cute together! I love it!

haha, thanks Brittany! I never run out of stuff because now that people know I use it in everything I do, they literally bring me BOXES and BOXES of junk. And I mean junk. I dump it all out and organize it into bins by categories and I usually keep all of it. You never know when you are going to need a broken candle holder or tiny watch spring. Cheesy And we are incredibly geeky...you don't even know the half of it. lol!

seriously everything you make rocks and I love AFI so super congrats on that JEALOUS

Thanks RobbinZombie! I hope you think that about what I sent you this week.  Wink And I was almost more excited about Davey Havok looking at me than I was the engagement. HA! Just kidding...sorta. Cheesy

He has not seen it yet, but I will let you know! Hopefully he likes it. Grin And oh my gosh, that is just gorgeous! It inspires me to make another one and go all out with it on the front too!
