completely lovely...very romantic , but not in an expected way . Love it .

I agree!  It's lovely and romantic w/o being particularly ornate.  I'm inspired to try something similar for a girlfriend's holiday present.  Thanks for sharing!  [bookmarked]

i really like the boxers i dea --i might use that for my bro -- but i can't think what to do for dad ---i can sew, knit, crochet, and i do LOTS oF bath and body stuff as well as stencils, Silouhetts, and jewlarry ect. he likes golfing ac/dc , wolf mother , action movies and is a total work-aholic 
Silhouettes, you say?  I've been thinking of doing a silhouette representation of an incident a friend had with him chasing a dog, chasing another dog, chasing a cat, chasing a squirrel that got into his house.  Is there a memorable or humorous occasion/incident from your dad's life that you can represesnt in silhouette?

that is a really great idea --thanks --although now i have to go through the family photo albums ---i was thinking of ironing on the silhouette or stencil on to a shirt or some sort of clothing itam.

Yeah, the thing holding me up is tackling the search for an image of a skinny guy swinging a broom!  I'm just assuming that finding an image of a Malamute and a Labrador Retriever would be easy... I could be wrong!

Are you any good with photo shop? you could always take a photo of a skinny guy and then manipulate it to look like what you want, since it's going to be a silhouette anyway.

At one point I even had the skinny guy lined up to let me shoot a photo of him swinging a golf club thinking that I could manipulate that in photoshop or by hand with a itty bitty teeny tiny white lie as to why I needed it, but I'm afraid to bring it back up and give away the secret!  Also, not so good at, nor to I much enjoy, lying.  Even the little white ones like that - unless we're talking about being polite or sparing someone's feelings (i.e. "what a lovely home", etc.)   Undecided  BUT I'm reminded that I have a friend who's a sports photographer who might be able to help me out.  Hmmmmmm.

Simple, but not dull!  I like your choice of earwire for this pair, too.

The in-ear photos are good, but I think that the earrings would show up better on something with a smaller pattern or solid color in the other shot.

If they enjoy their greenhouse, maybe some heirloom seeds to start?  You could make pot markers with the names of the plants that will grow.  Check out Smith & Hawkin for inspiration for nifty garden things, both practical and decorative.

I absolutely love the disparity between the delicate hankie and the rawness of the situation depicted. Very nice job.


Me too!!!
I love this place. This isn't your grandma's sticking circle!
I think it would be awesome to make some turn down linens with such raw images. Wink

Hehehehe!  You're brave!

I'm adding to the chorus about what a fabulous idea this is AND the amazement that you can do it with 7 kids!  I love the feet on the reverse side idea, too.  I have the sneaking suspicion that you're going to have to make another tree skirt waaaaay before before that new baby is out of the house.

Congratulations!  When I was following your posts, I was thinking what else could possibly be this amazing?  I guess nothing was!  Woo!
