Father's Day Feature Day 3 - "The Hobby Dad"

Good day everyone! Welcome to the last day of the Father’s Day Gifts Feature. Today’s feature is for “The Hobby Dad”. The Hobby Dad is a dad that loves to play and is fun to be around. He is a man who loves his hobby and loves to talk about it even more. The Hobby Dad wants to share his “wonderfully, fun” hobby experiences with his family and show them the excitement in what he enjoys.

Our first featured item is the Salty Mariner Kelp and Sea Salt VEGAN Soap, pictured above. This interesting soap is perfect for the fishing hobby dad. Everyday he can wake up and take a shower with the smell of the ocean waves. It’ll be like going fishing everyday and what fisherman doesn’t want that? lol. This bar of soap is made with kelp powder, seaweed, dead sea salt and spirulina. It has the strong salt and seaweed smell, but also a clean and crisp beach breeze and ocean wave smell to it. Because this vegan soap is made with Kelp it contains a source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, plus amino acids. WOW, getting your vitamins while your shower lol yay! You can purchase this awesome gift for your Hobby Dad at Solsticescents’ Etsy Shop for $3.75.

The next featured Hobby Dad item is pictured below, the Old School Hand Tools Painted Silhouette. This silhouette is for the proud Mr. Fixer Upper in your life. He is the Hobby Dad that believes he can fix anything, and he can ^_~. Hand painted with watercolor on stained watercolor paper, this one of a kind piece of art work is a great gift for your Hobby Dad to hang in his tool shed or favorite work area. It also comes with two note cards, so your gift is ready to go. There’s even an option for gift wrapping. What a deal! Find this fine painting in Peartreeprimitives' Etsy Shop for $25.00

Next is a gift for the Music Lover Hobby Dad, a man who knows his music and connects with it. The picture above shows a beautiful 8x10 Fine Art Photographed Analog Studio. This photo is part of Brief Moments of Swing series by BriefMoments on Etsy. She was focusing on the art of sound and all its different manifestations, both natural and human-made. What a lovely thought that is. I’m sure your Music Lover Dad would feel the same when he sees this framed analog studio and appreciate it very much. You can purchase this original signed photograph in BriefMoment’s Etsy shop for just $20.00.

To finish off the Father Day’s Gift Feature is this awesome White Wall in Green - 8x10 fine art photograph by AppleLovesOrange. Absolutely a wonderful gift to the Car Lover Hobby Dad. The dad that loves his vehicles as much as he loves working on them. Printed on an 8x10 semi-gloss paper, this photograph is a reminiscent of pop art. I love the vibrant glow of the green and white. It will surely be a conversational piece and a gift your Hobby Dad will thank you for. Find this pop art piece in AppleLovesOranges’ Etsy shop on sale for $14.00.

Thank you everyone for joining in and reading my 3 day Father’s Day Gifts Feature. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope I was of help for your gift shopping. Stop by again in 1-2 weeks for the 4th of July Feature! Have a wonderful Father’s Day!

Father's Day Feature Day 2 - "The Business Dad"

Welcome to Day 2 of the Father's Day Gift Feature! Today I'll be featuring fabulous gifts for "The Business Dad". Who is a "Business Dad"? A Business Dad is a man who goes to work everyday, works hard for his family, and when he comes home he understands how to show his family he loves them not only with the money he provides, but the time he takes to spend time with them. He works not to become rich with material items, but to provide his family enough to be happy. The Business Dad is the dad that know how to love his work AND his family.

The first showcased item today is pictured above, the UPCYCLED Dark Brown Vintage Briefcase. What a sleek design it has and very environmental too! Your "Business Dad" can go to work knowing he's not only adding his 2 cents to "saving the world", but he's going in style. This one of a kind briefcase is designed with a handpainted white leaf and has an interior that contains 4 Legal Sized Folder Dividers. You can find this piece of artwork lugguage in GetReadySetGO's Etsy Shop for $49.95.

The next item of the feature is pictured below, the Bark - Men's Leather Belt. What's so special about this belt? Well why don't I just go ahead and tell you then? Well...I think I will then lol Not only is this belt made with handmade quality it is also made with quality Italian textured leather and topgrain leather. (Ever wanted to give something Italian to someone? This is the gift to give.) For those who don't know topgrain leather flexes when you do, so no more rigid, uncomfortable belts. Think of all those business meetings your Business Dad will be attending and in his mind he'll be thanking you for giving him something comfortable to wear. You can find this finely handcrafted piece in AnvilArtshop's Etsy Shop for $48.00.

The last, but not least feature for today's "Business Dad" is the Isigo Reclaimed Amazon Hardwood Box, pictured above. Handcraved from Isigo, an Amazon Hardwood similar to Mahogany, this box was created with nothing held back. Nothing but quality work, from its 100% wool felt interior to protect valuables to it's numerous coats of polyurethane and beeswax for a polished and durable finish. This accessory box was made to last and to protect the valuables your Business Dad will place in it. Let your Business Dad keep his cherish items in a box he'll also cherish and let him remember he deserves such fine craftmanship. You can purchase this handcrafted box from JAmberg's Etsy Shop for $50.00. JAmberg is also having a FREE SHIPPING YART SALE.

PhotoShop? I'm Trying "Picture It"!

As many people know, Photoshop is an amazing software that is also complex and very hard to learn and understand. Plus it costs hundreds of dollars...Ouch >_<. I always wanted to learn Photoshop and also purchase it, but I simply can't afford it and I don't even know if I could learn it. I just needed to find another way to fufill my photo/graphic editing needs...

Well thank my lucky stars! Today as I was heading home from work I decided to stop by my local thift store to just browse around for fun, then I saw it... a brand new, unopen box of Microsoft 'Picture It!' 2001. Okay, yea it's new but it's 8 years old...still hey I thought I'll give it a try for only $8.00. ^_^ So I headed home so excited and downloaded it immediately to my desktop. To my amazement it was truly awesome! It has all the features I was looking for in Photoshop and tons of extra artwork! The picture above is my first project on "Picture It" and I love it. Not bad for a 8 year old software huh lol.

I love my new software and love the price I got it for, now here's what I want to do for my readers so they can feel my excitement...Most of you have etsy shops and listings. I would be happy to try and improve any picture you may have on your listings or even a banner maybe. I'll do my very best as I learn the software. If you would like to give me a shot on improving something in your shop, please let me know by clicking on the EMAIL button on the top left ^_^. I'm so excited in hearing from everyone and I will be posting some future projects later on.

CALLING ALL MEN! ATTENTION PLEASE! =) Thanks...*ahem.. Valentine's Day is one of the most important day to remember especially for the men. All you men out there don't want to dare forget one of the most romantic day of the year. Now I every year you guys find it hard to figure out what to get your girl this year so today's feature will help guide you.

My first suggestion is this beautiful Hand Painted Silk Scarf. This scarf is a perfect gift because it serves as a card and a gift! The scarf already has the message you want to say to your girl, "Be Mine". Everytime she wears it, you can be sure she's thinking of you. You can also be sure that everytime someone askes her where she got such a lovely, unique scarf she'll be thinking of you. You can purchase this lovely scarf from MadeWithLovingHands for just $18.00! (*Discount & Special Available! See end of post.)

My next suggestion are these fabulous Origami Rose Bouquet made by Lunatiger. Why give her flowers that would just die in a week when you can give her these artistic valentine origami roses made from sating ribbon that will last forever. Let her be reminded of you love for years to come instead of just a week. I know that everytime my boyfriend buys me flowers I get so happy and of course love them, but when the flowers start to die I start to feel sad. I would love to have flowers blooming on my desk for me to look at all year round. Get these everlasting in a variety of colors for only $17.00 from Lunatiger. (*Discount & Special Available! See end of post.)

Now another great suggestion is this gorgeous handbag. Trust me on this men, almost all women love handbags. We all need at least one handbag in our closet and this hangbag by Daphnenen for $55.00 would be a fabulous gift. This bag is made from high quality COTTON VELVET fabric and is extremely durable, yet lightweight. It can hold lots of items and also comes in a variety of colors to match your need.

My next suggestion and last one for this feature is a gift almost every woman will absolutely love and would want for Valentine's's a ring! Ok, ok...don't be doesn't have to be an engagement ring, but a promise ring would be nice. The ring pictured below is one of the most beautiful rings I've ever seen. It was named "Royal" by it's creator's shop ArtisanLook. I love that name "Royal" and it totally matches the ring's feature. Made from sterling silver and 9k yellow gold, this ring can be order from sizes 5-12 to fit your woman's finger. So why not treat you woman like royalty and spoil them with gorgeous ring on Valentine's Day.
