I’m just about ready to leave for our annual camping trip. Each year I usually try to bring a fun craft project for the group to help us all relax a bit. This year I am showing them how to make these hammered copper bracelet cuffs. Each one is hand stamped with names or words of choice. For my example, I decided to stamp the names of my four grandchildren. I love how these turned out – very boutique style. I want to share this fun item with others so I am offering them on my Everyday Holiday Etsy shop. Check them out here
So I was lucky enough to have TWO dad figures in my life; my biological dad who gave me his great straight hair, beautiful blue eyes, weekly visits with cracker jacks and office supplies; and my uncle who gave me the best part of his life raising me. Dads (poppa, father, daddy, uncle, step-dad) come not only with many names but different versions. Some are Mr. Mom with totally hands on experience (I see my son is taking on this version) and some work long hours and only get a few precious hours a day to see and love their lil ones (a shout to my son-in-law). Some are lucky enough to see them grow up to be dad’s themselves. (Yay Grandparents Rule!). But all of them try their best to instill good habits, goals, and a vision for our lives.
Knowing that most of you want to thank the dad types in your life (Fathers Day is June 19), I have created a few items available in my Etsy Shop to let them know how much you love them and appreciate all the hard work. From a simple coffee card (ready for your gift card), to a wood block salute to his special day, or even to these awesome personalized display hammers.
