Welcome

Hello! My name is Shannon Taylor. I'm a long-time writer and editor from Minnesota surprised to find myself on an island in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, three younger children (the oldest is attending college in Chicago), and two dogs.

So what if instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

Father’s Day Round-Up

Some of the kids’ teachers were kind enough to have them make Father’s Day gifts before school let out, but we still need a few more things for the World’s Best Dad who lives under our roof (and two terrific grandfathers and a great-grandfather, too). I really like this Father’s Day tie card from Family Fun magazine. It’s creative but simple―my favorite combination.

Here are some more ideas for the dads in your life:

  • Transform your real-life hero’s favorite treats into a superhero-worthy care package with these personalized labels.
  • If you like to sew, you might enjoy making this personalized car kit full of useful items.
  • If you’re feeling really ambitious, these mini Altoid toolboxes are awfully cute. They could hold all sorts of odds and ends.
  • You can find some cute (and free) Father’s Day card printables here.
  • Maybe one day I’ll learn how to sew a tie like this.
  • It might be a cliché, but Tim really is the grill master around here. (I tend to burn things because I try to multi-task. But Tim’s perfectly happy standing in one place, patiently flipping away.) I think he’d get a kick out of this hand-painted grill platter.
  • If he’s been especially good this year, you might want to transform Dad’s favorite lawn chair into a throne, complete with everything he’d need for a relaxing Father’s Day.
  • These lawn mower cupcakes made me smile. Wouldn’t they be fun for kids to make?
