Daddy's day

Tomorrow is my dad's birthday...Happy birthday dad!

This morning as I thought about my dad's big day, it dawned on me that I never shared my Father's Day project with you all last month! In my defense, June was a crazy busy month. Please don't hold it against me. I'm pretty amazed I was even able to do a Father's Day project this year.

Without further ado, here's what I made for The Dear Sweet Husband for his third(!) Father's Day.

The idea certainly wasn't my own. I have Sharilyn, over at Lovely Design, to thank for developing the design (and for being prepared a few days ahead of the game giving me enough time to whip it up at the last minute).

What I love about this project is that it's a great use for the stack of artwork Abner's brought home from daycare over the last few months. She's so proud of all of the pieces, but I have to be honest, I don't really know what to do with 60 or so pages of scribbles and paint smears. Now I feel less guilty about recycling the rest of the artwork pile since I was able to pick out five of her brightly coloured pieces and integrate them into the design. It's like we worked on the piece together without actually working together.


  1. Looks great! I saw this project on Lovely Design and thought it was a great way to use kids' artwork.

  2. love this - it is such a good idea. i saw it on LD too but didn't get around to putting two and two together. ;-) will tuck this great idea under my hat for next father's day.

  3. Glad you guys like it! Now...if I could only get around to hanging it on the wall!
