Things We Love To Do

Fort Building kit! With summer approaching I love this idea as an alternative to the endless backyard camping trip. I see this as a good end of the school year gift, which will inspire many-a-days building and imagining.

Rainbow printable Love the colors and the saying.

Shortcuff links for dad I know men (our dad’s or the father of your kids) are pretty difficult to buy for year after year. Another tie? Really? I’m not full of inspiration on the upcoming day yet but in the past have done “experiences” as gifts. Like renting a boat for the afternoon, having a lobster cook out (his fav) or maybe this year? Hot air balloon? An afternoon at the skate park (his fav)? I find it easier to gift a memory than a thing … and these cuffs could be the way we deliver it to him.

Burlap coffee bag art a how-to for your wall. I am a little bit obsessed with burlap.

Tea Caddy this is great as it is, but I can also see making the pockets a tad larger for a car caddy (kids toys, paper, crayons etc) or for the never ending pile of misc stuff that just ends up between the front two seats. Clean it up in there.

Flour sack heaven how to use the vintage (or recreate the effect) of flour sacks of yesteryear.

Industrial side tables Love these. Clean, simple and a taste of the factory look with the steel and wood.

Cardigan chain Jewelry is the new down-vest.

Mustache mug I’m still not over the mustache thing. šŸ™‚

Martha does it again Free downloads for BEST DAD fathers day labels. Loving the block type style.

Make a paper house! Adorable. Love.

Knit some tube sock leg-warmers or sew/hem some old tube socks INTO leg-warmers. I don’t knit … yet.

Necklaces out of found objects I’ve seen these before and I’m always drawn to them. I love their shapes.

Envelope surprise I want to do this! Not sure how or why yet, but I can’t wait.

Knot front shorts classic!

Honey comb shelves – Old painted cabinets turned hive-haven? So much happiness.

Teacher Subway art I’m thinking of passing this along to my daughters teacher as our thank you gift for the end of the year. I don’t do Teacher Appreciation week or anything (gasp!) but I love gifting a little something at the end of the year. (It’ll fit nicely into an IKEA frame, too)

Make your own stamp brown bag I think I would love letterpressing. No?

Motivational poster free download. We have “House rules” in our house that go pretty much the same as these. All about our family values and how we want to grow as people, together.

Coodie catcher I can’t wait to play this with my daughter – I think it’ll be a great summer activity that can spark some time well spent.

Make your own mid-century house numbers some day when I have a house number all my own again. Some day.

Ice cream cupcakes Ahh! So cute.
