Hey crafty peeps, I need your help.
My husband and I tried for 4 1/2 years for a baby and through the miracle of science, we were blessed with our wonderful daughter last July.
So this is my husband's first father's day and I want to make it special. He LOVES LOVES LOVES this kid, she has him totally wrapped around her finger and he loves to flaunt his "daddy" status. Plus he works his bootay off in a demanding job so that I can stay home with her. He's a GREAT guy and I want him to know how much I appreciate him and love that he's her daddy.
I am a bit of a crafty beech, so it's only appropriate that I create something for him. I sew LOTs and I love to scrapbook, but I always like to try new things.
He works really really hard, so he doesn't have many hobbies. He likes TV, like Heros and Lost and shows like that. He loves beer! He's very handy and loves to play with power tools when he gets the chance. He likes to fish but doesn't get to much anymore, because I work on the weekends so he hangs with the kid. He also likes to play poker but doesn't get to much anymore since it tends to be expensive and late at night. His favorite hobby though is reading.....reading geeky books to be exact! Starwars and Salvatore books are his favs. He did mention that he'd like the new Gunslinger book from steven king....Oh, and he's a total math geek, like does math in his head for fun while he's driving.
So, the question then is......what should I do?! I've got ideas for store bought gifts, but I'd really like to make him something sentimental.
Oh! Two more things, his birthday is the DAY BEFORE father's day, lucky him. And I tried to make him a "dad" ring from PMC at christmas......ummmm disaster!
Thanks in advance you guys. I guess mommy brain has me feeling a bit uncreative.
