{Father’s Day} Crafts, Coupon Codes, Ideas, and More!

I’m quite a bit behind schedule today.

My baby girl wearing her daddy's hat, looks just like him here.

Baby’s surgery:

My baby girl had surgery yesterday. It was a minor procedure; she had a blocked tear duct that needed to be opened, but it required general anesthesia which scared the heck outta me. But it went great {I’m going to share a bit about it in a post later} and she’s home and looking good. But today is catch-up day!

While going through my {totally overflowing!!} email inbox, I saw tons of great Father’s Day ideas, so I’m going to share a round up here of some favorites!

  • Parenting: Sweet article with 5 ways to make Father’s Day special. Read here. My daughters dad has two older daughters, so this isn’t HIS first Father’s Day, but it’s the first one for me and baby to celebrate with him, so I loved reading these ideas!

I use this all the time, the quality is great, and everyone loves these as gifts. Get started here. One of my favorites are their mini-photo books!
  • Open Sky: This is a cool site I’ve told you about before. Pick a few favorite celebrities and designers to follow. They will send you a weekly pick from that category that you will probably love. So far, I’ve had some amazing ideas sent to me! And the sign up only takes a second. Todays idea is from Alicia Silverstone: “sonic ties” that are hand-woven from recycled audio cassette tapes and and fabric. Each one is an individual work of art and believe it or not–they actually play music! For those of you that still have cassette players–if you run a tape head over the fabric, you’ll hear a sound collage. So cool. Check out Open Sky Click Here, sign up for categories, and pick who to follow! Easy peasy.
  • Dinner Out: Pick up some gift certificates at and save up to 80% off. I do this a few times a year, and stock up on a bunch of certificates for places that we’ll be visiting in the next few months.
