Catalog of Love: A Perpetual Anniversary Gift
My husband and I are happily celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary this week! Handmade gifts and treasures have always been a part of our relationship, including our wedding cake toppers above. My husband made the “mini us,” and I made our canine daughters all out of clay.
This year, I wanted to give him something that we could add to each year as our relationship grows. Thus, the Catalog of Love was born as a perpetual anniversary gift!
This is an antique wooden library card catalog box that now will hold the chapters of our relationship and life together. I created faux Dewey Decimal catalog cards, where the book number is replaced by milestone dates, chapters of our love overwrites book titles, and important locations substitute publisher cities. One day, when we are both old and wrinkled, I hope we will be able to fill the box completely with our life’s chapters together.
If you want to create your own Dewey Decimal cards, which can be used on a variety of gifts, such as birthday cards or present tags, visit the Catalog Card Generator. I’d love to see what you create!
