Post Dad’s Day Craftiness

I hope all of you had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating the special dad’s in your life. I know the kids and I were super excited to spoil their daddy a bit yesterday. He is such an incredible husband and father it was pretty easy to love on him!


Earlier in the week the kids and I whipped up a little goodness for him. I psyched them up for a photo session with yours truly in the name of lovin’ on daddy and they were so for it…right up until picture taking time. Oy. Suddenly flashes of Christmas card picture taking nightmares were flooding back to me. OK…maybe it wasn’t that bad. We headed to the park for a nice background and I snapped Sam’s then Maggie’s picture. Next was Cate and she was NOT having it. It’s all about the timing people. I took baby girl home filled her belly and took her outside by herself and voila she was happy to accommodate her picture takin’ mama. Here are our results…



I picked up these letters at Hobby Lobby for about $3 each with a 40% coupon. I also purchased a frame from HL at 50% for $10. It was not quite right for the occasion in all it’s zebraness but the only one I could find with the right amount of openings just as I needed them so I made it work!


The not-so-manly zebraness…

With the help of some scrapbook paper, mod podge, and a little black paint to antique the edges we changed the whole look.

Ahhh much better…



Our fella was happy and we had a pretty fantastic day! Hope you all have a great start to your week. I have several furniture rehabs to show you this week! Stay tuned…
