  1. Thanks for including my iDad card – that was really nice of you! Great round-up – I especially love that tie cookie.

  2. I just got my photo canvas in the mail from Canvas People. 16×20″ photo canvas. I got a sweet deal on it (under $40 SHIPPED!!!) . This thing is SWEET, but my hubby opened it before I got home (it’s ok, he doesn’t know it’s for his office).
    I’m also going to make a cute little 4×6 photo album cover from some of our son’s artwork (embroidery/reverse applique – looks and sounds complicated, but it really is super simple to do). Want to see? Check out my mother’s day post of previous designs (oh, should I consider them my SON’s designs? Well, whatever…) here: http://cadamscreations.blogspot.com/2011/05/reverse-applique-for-mothers-day.html

    1. Great Post! If you are unsure what kind of gifts to get then you can check out some online gift stores. There is one store that I found that has a whole bunch of unique gift items, electronics, gadgets, keychains, and other interesting items. I bought a few things from them and the people I gave it to like it a lot. I even bought some for myself since some of the stuff is so fun to play with. The stuff there is pretty cheap. They also have free shipping and they deliver fast. You can visit this store at http://www.thinkfuntoys.com
