Crafty Father's Day

I'm starting to become known as the "crafty chick" around here. So I would be totally remiss if I didn't figure out something crafty for Father's Day. What kind of crafty chick goes out and buys a Father's Day present when she's got a drawer (or drawers, bags and shelves!) full of fun crafty stuff?

But sometimes my brain just cannot handle the pressure. This is when I turn to other crafty chicks to help me out. There are so many great ideas out there just waiting for me to try.

A couple of weeks ago, I came across this blog posting showing me how to make a perfect Father's Day present using Shrinky Dinks! I know - awesome right? I haven't used those things since I was a kid! Logan was sure to love it.

We gathered up all the tools and made to-scale key chains out of the kids hand tracings. Logan let me trace his hand, and even Lane stayed reasonably still while I traced hers. Then Logan decorated them and we put them in the toaster oven. I must admit, I was way more enthusiastic about this process than Logan was. But he humored me.

Our final result was precious.
