Too Cute Not Too Toot

I've been digging for some more Father's Day Ideas and found this one that is up first from Nothing But Country that is just fantastic. It is an adorable frame that would look great in an office or in a special place on any wall.  Plus they have given the printable to make this even an easier gift!

This is a very cute wreath idea from Crossing the Bugger-Dixon Line for a Father's Day Wreath.  She used a golf theme for her example but you could chose any hobby to make the wreath much more personable.

This would make a great gift for dad and would also be a fun game for the family from over at Sweet Bee Buzzings - it is a marble solitaire game and really is so creative.  I want to make one for my boys to learn how to play.

Pressed Down, Shaken Together gives a tutorial for Fingerprint art that is really great.  This would make a great gift for dad or for the grandparents too!  I've seen fingerprint art down on some of the HGTV shows but this one is totally different and includes the whole family.

Another thing we are all thinking about (or at least in my head everyone is ha!) is summer activities.  I have penciled in all kinds of Festivals and activities on our summer just so we can see our options but, I also love this idea from Sassy Sites on creating a framed list of 60 activities to do for the summer.  I am ear marking this one to use down the road a few years when the boys are old enough to help pick out their 60 ideas!

If you need help coming up with those 60 ideas, check out this list from over at Crystal and Co.  - lots of very creative ideas to add to your list or just to go to when your kids say "I'm bored" !!  And Sassy Sites also posted her list as well and you can see that here.

Here is another great Father's Day idea from Homespun with Love  that is based on a Movie Night - what a great all around idea!
I think I might have missed a few linky parties because I didn't find as many ideas as I usually do!  I'll have to pay a little closer attention next week :-)

Crafty Crafty - Adorable Hats! (The Dainty Daisy!)

I'm sharing this over at Kelly's Korner for show us your life Friday!  This is not my own shop but belongs to a friend of mine!  She does awesome work :-)

Check out these little hats I got recently for a friend who had twins!
Are those not the two most adorable little things ever!!!!  You want some, don't you?  Well, let me tell you about the most talented person who creates these!  A friend of ours, Betsy, is also known as "The Dainty Daisy" and she really creates amazing work - I so wish that she would have been in "business" when my boys were born so that I could have picked up several of the items to have at the hospital and for those wonderful newborn photos.  She also has items for older children and will make items upon request too.

Check out some of these items that you can find in her Etsy Shop

Can you guess which one we would have used?  The guitar of course!! :-)  You can also check out The Dainty Daisy Blog as well and see other things she is working on as well. 

I truly wish that I had her talent but, since I don't, I'm going to promote her talent!!!  Do you know someone who is expecting?  This is the perfect gift!!  How creative to give one of these has a shower gift - there is nothing better than something homemade!  (Betsy is so popular - you need to get your orders in early - plus she is expecting her own little bundle this fall and will need to fill orders early!)
