Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day was a few days ago on Sunday. I asked hubs what he would like to do for his special day and his response: “Build the deck”. Well alright then. Who am I to argue with a man on a mission lol. We’re doing some work on the house and building the deck was #1 on the list. Sorry… no pics yet. Ill try to remember to snap some pics of the disaster zone that is my backyard.

I was a bit preoccupied this year so I dropped the ball on planning and getting a gift for hubs on Father’s Day. We needed a new BBQ and hubs had been scoping around and checking out prices. We finally found one for a stinkin good price at Home Depot when we went to pick up some things to build our deck.
The was a lineup of BBQ’s in the “dents & scratch” section at the entrance so we stopped to see what they had. There happened to be one that had a broken wheel and a small dent in the back. Original price was $549, on sale for $230. Hubs basically ran to the cash register to pay for it and snap it up before anyone else saw it.

I wanted to get something else JUST for hubs and I had 3 days to think of something. I had found a book about beer and craft beer from around the world at Winners for $16 that I thought he might enjoy but I still wanted to get home something from the boys. Enter Pinterest.

I already had the canvas on hand for a nursery project that I never got around to and it happened to be the perfect size for this project.

I used grey paint for my hand, let it dry for about an hour and then put some teal paint on Riley’s hand. His hand print is a bit smudged because he decided to move his fingers around. Even harder was trying to get a 10m old to keep his fingers straight and hand still. Although he did get a good laugh when I was putting the paint on his hand lol.

Till next time!
