One thing I will always remember about my childhood is going to the hardware store with my dad. It seemed like every Saturday we were going to pick up odds and ends for some type of repair or project. I’m pretty sure that is why I like doing projects and visiting my local hardware stores so many years later. I’m comfortable around all sorts of tools, wood, and other supplies.
Forward to my own family, and there are tons of father/son moments going on in our house. Usually these moments are spent in the garage, or as some like to call it, “the man cave”. My husband has acquired quite the collection of tools, and he always has some kind of random project going on. Seriously, it is never ending. A few months ago he built a dog house, and this week, he’s building a work bench for a friend. And since he likes to go “above and beyond”, he’s staining the wood on the work bench. My son is always eager to learn, even if he gets in the way sometimes. Lucky enough, there are some great “clean up” opportunities within my husband’s “project chaos” going on.
Father’s Day is coming up and I have already come up with the epic gift. I can’t wait for him to see it. But I think the “perfect” Father’s Day card is also essential. I sent out some great Mother’s Day cards to my friends from Cardstore.com and I can’t wait to use their site for a Father’s Day card for my husband and my dad. Using Cardstore.com’s website, you can create custom cards by adding personal photos, personalized messaging and your signature for a personal touch. Plus, this really is my most favorite part: Cardstore can print, stamp and send your card via US postal service for you.This year for Father’s Day, you can enter Cardstore.com’s Pin It for Papa Contest!

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All thoughts, opinions, and photographs are mine. CardStock is a rad site, and great for lazy, I mean super busy people like me, who hate to go to the store to look for greeting cards!
