Roaring twenties, and more for Dad

I don't have much to show for it yet but I am working on a dress for the 20's decade in LemonSqueezy's Challenge. I hope when I am finished you will be able to make a connection between it and that time period.

Thursday...what to do...what else LAUNDRY!!! of course. Goals for today: Keep C from beating up his sister. Work on dress.Work on Father's day stuff.

As much as I might want to I don't have thousands of dollars to spend on giant TVs or amazing designer watches like you might find if you try and look up Father's day gift ideas online. I don't even really have the money for some of these awesome etsy finds.

So if you are like me, and don't have them money but want to show Dad you care, here is a simple yet nice idea. Jones had a pair of pants that he really loved that ripped. Instead of throwing them out I saved them and for Father's Day I mended them for him. Good as new!

It may seem like a little thing, but sometimes it's the little things that convey your deeper affection. Love after all isn't always showy.

It's so true! I love doing crafty fun stuff for my husband- I think it means more to him anyways. Materials things aren't what really matters. We are pudding painting art for his office (I have a 15 month old) and I am sewing him a tie from some cool fabric I found. Cheap and creative!

Yay o yay, Nikki is awesome! You're awesome! I love what you've done with the place, I meant to say something earlier at your casa, but I'm still pretty aloof. I'll think something but not say it, or think I said it. Thanks for a relaxing SYTYCD? date:) Looking forward to carni pix tomorrow!

So true. My dh got waffles and coffee served to him this morning. It's all about the gesture, right? :p

True, that. And that bomber tie is, uh, da bomb. :)
