So, as some of you may know, my Daddy fell down the stairs a few years ago.  Well, since then he says, "Happy, Happy, Happy", 6 or 7 times a day, just being glad to still be around (not because of the Duck people at all...).  So, for his 83 birthday, I took the opportunity to make him a sweatshirt declaring his new tag line to the world...



My Hub chose the first font because it looked happy.  The second one was for his love of teck and computers, and the third one was for his love of cars.  Since I managed to cut the letters out with out mucking them up, I decided to get in a bit of my Daddy's happy..



I picked the computer font since I probably wouldn't be involved in computers at all if it weren't for him.  He was an engineer by trade and I'm an artist by nature.  If it wasn't for his patiences with me and all the tecky stuff back in the days of the Commadore64, I would have thought all this tecky stuff was too far above me.  I saved the other font letters too, and I'm going to make my Mom a happy shirt with the first font.

Here's a few in progress pics..



He has worn it everyday since I gave it to him, and proudly shows it to anyone who will listen, which delights me to no end s he is notoriously difficult to get prezzies for.  And the fact that I could make him something makes me feel terribly clever Grin

Thanks for looking Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

It is excellent!

And I am glad you captured the happy mental state he is in - a great idea and even better because he likes it! Grin

What a wonderful gift! It's very well thought.

It is also very neatly stenciled. I like the colors and font you used, they are happy too.

Well of course you ARE terribly clever  Grin ! Dads aren't that easy to craft for! You deserve some craftster-love for that!

I like the shirt, it really does look happy! I also like how you thought about the fonts you used.
Great job Susi!  Cheesy

I love the pic of your proud dad (and your mom in the background reading, haha  Cheesy )

One HAPPY family!  Grin

How about a happy song?

Here's a link to the lipdub my boys made at school:
http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=x-XfNByhj1Q

At 0.10-0.12 at the right side you see a boy with a blue shirt, he sticks his tongue out when the camera passes... That is my oldest, Thijs.
At 1.45 you can see him again, in his classroom holding a sign. He is the smallest one  Tongue

At 0.57-0.58 you can see a boy in a dark blue shirt, holding a sign. He jumps. That is the youngest, Joris.
You can see him again at 1.22 when the camera goes back and at 3.00 in his classroom. He is sitting in the back, not so clearly to see.

A small school, not so many kids. They all appear more than once.  Smiley
