Last week, I suddenly felt the overwhelming need to create my husband a gift for our anniversary this week. I have always made gifts for Mike since we started going out as couple and I stopped when we got married. Mike doesn’t want anything but service like a massage, a different food experiment, a coffee concoction, even a haircut. So I indulge him by providing him massage and cooking food for him. But then I realized that these things have been an ordinary token of love that I just have to make something not ordinary.
Since my husband is a very simple guy, it is harder to think of something that would really make him like, you see, he is very content and happy but I just want to see that hint of surprise in his eyes.
Mike always love Naruto. He is the one who even introduced the anime to me. So we used to spend days watching the series repeatedly.
And it is from that concept that I felt I have to do something inspired. But remember that I have already given him a Naruto crocheted coaster a while back? Doing something like that would not have anything “special” to it, so I have to think more.
Then I thought of the whole characters in Kakashi sensei’s team. It was a feat, of course as I only have five days to make the gift and I cannot crochet when he is around and I have work.
But I was able to finish the gift! And seeing him very happy with it filled my heart with delight I cannot remember now the day I woke up in the morning to crochet endlessly 😀
Here are the pictures:
We celebrated our third year anniversary yesterday! Three years with a new baby in tow 😀
