Love Gifts

Perhaps the title is misleading... what I mean is... Gifts made with Love...

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary July 9th. Tradition indicates the gift for one year of marriage is paper. I joked with my husband and said, "Yeah, it's paper because newlyweds are POOR!" We both had a giggle at my cleverness. Seriously, we're not poor. I'm just silly.

We decided to make our gifts for each other since we're both kind artsy fartsy. Plus, my teacher friend, let's call her "Snowball", and her husband also follow the traditional list and inspired me to copy. Yes, I'm a copy cat. Haven't your heard? Teachers are awesome at begging, borrowing, and stealing? 

Without further adieu... here's what we made
1 year anniversary - paper

 I was inspired by this tutorial I'd pinned on Pinterest.

As you can see, Joe is more original than I am.
 Paper Anniversary 
He painted a pretty design on paper, folded an origami heart envelope and wrote me a lovely letter.

Isn't love lovely?
