So the best part about having a husband who is a complete social media dofus is the fact that:
1) He rarely (and by rarely I mean perhaps if the world is coming to an end and/or our plasma tv is completely non functioning) checks his Facebook account.
2) He has literally told me that "morons" use Twitter.
3) Digg? Yes he does this if he's gardening....and trust me he's not.
4) He probably doesn't even know I still blog (either personally or for my photography) and if for some insane reason he does he couldn't even begin to navigate to either of these blogs.
It's not that he doesn't appreciate technology or feel the constant urge to know the intimate petty details of his 200 closest friends from Facebook, he simply claims he doesn't have time.
Clearly he doesn't understand; no one HAS time!
I mean, seriously? I barely have time to bathe every day! Do you think I actually HAVE time for this? Of course not! Let's prioritize.
So, what does all of this actually add up to?
Yes, a husband who still lives in the day and age where knowledge of anything outside of what I literally verbally communicate to him is simply nonexistant. Therefore, when I posted this image today:
If I want to keep a secret from the man I can totally blast it on the internet and he wouldn't have a clue. I could create an event for a surprise birthday party for him on Facebook and THEN INVITE HIM TO IT and he'd be none the wiser.
Therefore I am not the least bit worried about sharing our plans for Father's Day on here. Not that we have any outragesouly exciting plans. He just enjoyed a 3 day weekend away fishing with some guy friends so we best not spoil the man. Nope. This year we are breaking out the creativity and going back to our crafty roots.
I've had plans to do a variation of this:
I'm having the kids paint a white piece of cardstock in various colors of their liking and then I will mount the cut out letters on top.
Each kid will hold one letter and I will take a group photo of the 3 of them. I thought I would frame it along with the artwork in a collage frame for him.
I also found this free Father's Day book on Michelle's blog.
It's the sweetest little book that I'll have the kids fill out about Mark. It's the whole "fill in the blank" concept and I loooove when I do this with the students in my class because they come up with the BEST answers! There's even a place to put a photo of "Dad and Me" in the book so I made 2 extra copies of that page so all 3 kids could have their own separate page and then I had a photo of each of the kids with Mark printed and I'll mount those in there after the kids have finished the pages and coloring the entire book.
Lastly I'll be putting together a slideshow of images for him. Nothing too fancy but I wanted to get some images together of the kids througout the years and include them. Thought it would be a great way to spend Father's Day watching a slideshow of our fave images.
Sooo, there's a little crafty goodness. Easing into some fun projects for the summer. I'd love to get at least 5 projects from my Pinterest board done this summer.
We shall see. If the temps stay anything like they were today you can bet my hiney will be indoors crafty most of the summer!
