My Father's Day Gift for the Husband

Lately, I have been bombarded with emails regarding Father's Day in my inbox. PR pitches from companies hoping to spread the word about THE most perfect Fathers Day gifts.

Heh. Delete all without even reading is my tactic.

You see. This year I totally have THE best Father's Day gift evah! My husband and son have been working on our remodel since March and I have been documenting the very slow but loving progress being made by my two special fellas. I knew that I wanted to do something special with the photos.

I started at picnik and made a collage. Which is as simple as uploading photos and dragging them into your chosen collage pattern. I saved the collage to my hard drive. I then uploaded my collage to winkflash (who, by far, have some of the lowest prices online and the quality is super) and decided I wanted the collage to be printed on stretched canvas for a more professional look.

The final product:

Globe sticker is covering my house & the tiara is covering my gray hair.

I am very happy with the final product (which I paid for myself - these companies have no idea Im blogging about them). The collage will hang in our newly remodeled mud room and it will be a constant reminder of the hard work that has been poured into our loving home.

Winkflash is currently running a sale on posters. 40% off of poster prints. Use the code 40POSTERS. Make a picnik collage and suprise your husband/father/grandfather/father-in-law.

Is there where I admit that I TOTALLY thought the globe was part of the collage at first, and I was all like, "HUH?" until I read about its purpose?

Very cute idea. I think we're going to paint rocks this year, but I like the collage idea for next year.

That looks really neat! Thanks for sharing!

Krystyn said... don't want me to know what your house looks like?

Love the idea.

I've got a standard to uphold that I did the first Father's Day (which I created a canvas, but I painted it) and did a collage...maybe I'll winkflash it instead this year.
