DIY Father’s Day Banner

As I was looking for DIY Father’s Day gifts for yesterday’s post, I came across a TON of cute photo ideas. Check out the sweet photos below — perfect as framed gifts for Dad!

What I DIDN’T find were any Father’s Day photos from pets! I thought a picture of me with a “Happy Father’s Day” banner would be a perfect gift for Tom, so Liz helped me whip this up! All she needed was a used cardboard cylinder (she used an empty roll from a pack of drawer liner), some cute wrapping paper (to wrap around the cardboard), twine…

And the “Happy Father’s Day” printed letters. Liz used the same font from the header of this blog — “MTF Skinny Jeans” available for download from Miss Tiina. I just love Miss Tiina and all of her amazing fonts!

Liz cut out each of the letters…

Used an X-acto knife to cut two little slits at the top of each letter…

And used the twine to string the letters together!

She tied the twine to the wrapped cardboard tube, and the DIY Father’s Day banner was ready to go!

I may be a partial judge, but I think the picture turned out perfect :)

Hope you had a good day!

Moving Day!

It’s moving day!! Well, not OUR moving day, but still exciting! My auntie just bought a new townhouse, so we’ll be helping out with the move. I’ll probably just see if anyone needs to take a break to play out in the yard. Leave the heavy lifting to my gramps and Tom :)

Below are some moving-related pictures which reminded me of today — so beautiful.

I’ll keep you posted how the move goes… Hope you have a good day!

I can’t believe it’s already June! Time for summer, seaside, and picnics… Speaking of which, I could definitely stop in on a few of the beautiful picnics below.

Yep, I think I’d thoroughly enjoy any of those picnics! Can’t you just picture me rollin’ up?!

As for the seaside, I’ve never actually been to the beach. I’m feeling lucky though — I think this summer will be a summer of many firsts! Perhaps I should buy Tom and Liz the beautiful print below from The Wheatfield to get them movin’ on the beach trip…

Hope you have a great start to June!
