7 Cool Father’s Day DIY’s

7 Cool Father’s Day DIYs

I kind of cringe when it comes to making crafts for certain holidays. Sometimes they just look too…crafty! So crafty, in fact, that they end up in a closet never to be seen again, and are never tossed out because of “sentimental value.” Father’s day is one of these holidays.

I scoured the Internet looking for some ideas that would be fun and useful. Here they are:

Here’s to Felix from “Orphan Black”: Terrific Drink Trolleys

Are you watching the amazing, jaw-dropping, ever-twisting show “Orphan Black”? If you live somewhere where it’s being broadcasted, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. The story and performances are terrific. I was hooked within the first three minutes of the first episode and have never looked back. One of the characters is named Felix, and he’s often inappropriate, like when he asked pre-teen characters on the show, “Does your Daddy have a drinks trolley?”.
