Father's Day Card Photos
We didn't have time for any manic Dad gift crafting this year. And we were all okay with that (probably Ross most of all because he's running out of space!). But we did decide to make a cool card and some even cooler cupcakes for our favorite Daddy-O!
Here's the cool card:
Did you notice how the letters are made? Yep, I spent a crazed half hour making the maniacs form letters with their little bodies so that we could make this card. But since I was making them twist up into wacky shapes over and over again, I just decided to do the whole darn alphabet. So we could make all kinds of cards and banners and spell anything we wanted to with their poor, twisted limbs!
I have to say it turned out pretty good. And the kids thought it was pretty fun to try and make the shapes.
Our other cool Papa thing was a fun treat. We saw this idea in Family Fun and had to try it. BBQ Cupcakes!!
Super cool or what! They were easier to make than I thought.
All in all, Ross was pretty darn happy with his alphabet kids and "grilled' cupcakes. Phew!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
