Anniversary Present

Today is 2 years that Jeremy and I have been together. We met on Oct. 3 2008 but it wasn't "official" until November 1st. Nothing fancy happened, he just dropped the BF-bomb on me.
My apartment complex put up new signs in the parking lot that said "Tenant Parking Only" As we parked and he saw this sign he said "Well I need a sign that says "boyfriend" of tenant parking"" And that was that. So cute!
We don't really do the mushy, romantic thing. We didn't do anything last year for our anniversary or even Valentine's Day. This year I decided that I wanted to make him a little something just because. Of course I thought of this idea Thursday night while laying in bed trying to fall asleep. With overtime and Halloween parties this weekend, I wasn't sure if I'd get it done in time. I hunkered down yesterday, had a horror movie marathon and whipped this guy up!
I'm pretty proud of myself, I found this pattern for a heart and decided I would just wing the eyes. I wanted one bigger and one smaller, give it that zombie feel LOL
I've made Jeremy a few Zombie/Love things in the past, that's how I got this idea. For his birthday last year I made him this embroidery.

This is what I made him this year for our Anniversary.

I definitely stole the way AmyDice makes her little guys look like zombies with the blood coming out of their mouths. I hope you don't mind Amy!!
I can't wait to give this to him tonight!

Of course, it was soo easy! The embroidery zombies are from Sublime Stitching so you can totally do them too!

Amy said...

Aw, if I could embroider, then I would totally have to make that. haha. Unfortunately, I can't. :(

Jamie said...

embroidery is so easy Amy, it's basically just tracing or drawing with thread!

Thanks trees!!
