My friends over at 


 Hosted a fun challenge for us. 
They Challenged us to reclaim and recycle them
 Tacky Dad ties into something fun 

This is what I did with mine...

I made my Boys neck ties from the directions over at


She always has the funniest ideas for 
Our little furry friends


These were so cute on them and actually matched 
Their personalities perfectly
Bentley all serious and chest out (boss guy style)
Philly Chuck laid back and relaxed tie to the side (over paid employee style)
They both loved them.. 
We need little white collars now..      

Then I made these cute little angels
Great tuck in gifts or special gifts for
A friend that needs a little angel in their life 
Or great Christmas ornaments too         



Then for me of course anyone who knows me will know
I need a apron...lol... so that's what I did
It is so cool too..
 I wish I could get a good picture of the details in this
It is lady like with the gems
But still reminds me of my dad too
I Love it on my mannequin when not in use




The pocket turned out just darling and I took all the labels 
Off the backs and put them on the front for trim
I certainly had fun with this challenge
And will post some of my other ideas too

But you can see all the ideas over at 

Check out all the design team links.
Some really cool stuff


Until Next Time
I hope your day is filled with lots of Dad time
I will keep my Dad close in my heart.
