Happy Father's Day! We're nuts about daddy (and linky parties)!


You know what I love about linky parties? The fact that there are so many brilliant, creative and smart people out there, crafting up a storm, and (besides Pinterest) there is the easiest way of finding them all in one place.  You take all those creative people, and their projects, give us a little thumbnail and short description and let the browsing begin!

That is exactly how I stumbled upon this little gift the girls and I made for daddy and grandpa this year:

My dad got a giant tub o' Cashews and hubs, who told me his favorite nut is the pistachio got a bag of pistachios.

I saw the idea on one the many linky parties I visit each week (I must confess I don't remember which one.)  The original blogger (LizzieJaneBaby) had linked it up.  She even provided the free printables!   I immediately pinned it (from the ORIGINAL SOURCE of course!) so I wouldn't forget where I saw it. 

Once I bought the nuts, I resized the printables (and I did have to modify one of them since I wanted "Grandpa" and she only had Daddy and Papa) and recreated her awesome idea.

And that is the beauty of linky parties.. Not only did I get to share my latest project, I also found a new project I adored and wanted to copy, I found the original source of that project and was able to share it on my blog and on Pinterest where it has been repinned a couple dozen times.   

I have actually stumbled upon another blogger who also copied this idea after she found it on Pinterest (I have got to wonder if it was my pin?!)   What a small world!  Isn't it a great system?!

Anyhow.. now that I am done swooning over linky parties, I want to wish you all a Happy Father's Day!  

The girls are really looking forward to spending the day with Daddy.. the first love of their lives!

  2. I'm so happy you were able to use this idea!! It turned out really cute! I almost bought that big bag of pistachios or the big bag of peanuts in the shells, but the guys in my life just love cashews. I think the label looks great on the big bag! Thanks for sharing with me.

  4. Love this! I'll be pinning it, too! My dad loves to get nuts as a gift, so this will be a great way to dress them up! :) Thanks for sharing! (another bonus about link parties- I may have never come across that original post, but b/c you blogged about it, I got to see the idea :) (p.s. you should link up to my link party on Sundays! ;) http://www.raisingmemories.com/search/label/sharing%20time
