Today's post: Father's Day!
You'll be glad to know that my time in between posts will be a little less than from holiday to holiday from now on. The Deeply Rooted household has finally set down their roots again! We're out of our temporary housing and into our newly gutted, re-everything-ed and renovated home. It feels wonderful to be getting back into a routine and re-familiarizing ourselves to our 'stuff' (it's like Christmas with each opening of a box!).
For Father's Day gifts we often have to delve into the mind of our husbands, and if you husband's anything like mine, that can be a scary trip! I wanted a project that the kids could help me with, but something beyond a scribbled picture or a bad combination of Elmer's and popsicle sticks. I came up with the modern-day Father's Day picture frame:
I started out with a clear CD case (remember those things? CD's?) and took the front off to use. I awkwardly asked my father-in-law if I could have a few of his nuts (his face was priceless), and folded down some Craft Glue Dots® to adhere them randomly around the case:
Make this unique to the dad in your life! Find what he likes and make your own Father's Day frame!
...unless he likes pizza. Then you might just make him a pizza.
