Thought a reminder that Fathers Day is this coming Sunday and if you ARE planning on doing the handmade fire starters, you need to get busy!!!!
I made these a few days ago, using NOTHING but items I had on hand as well as alot of dryer lint that was headed for the garbage!!! I had been collecting paper towel tubes, and since I do try to keep out paper towel consumption to a minimum, I had to also recruit my mother in law to save me hers as well. She always comes through for me. I am certainly blessed with a WONDERFUL mother in law!!!
If you can not remember the instructions, refer back to the archived posts to “Homemade Fire Starters” and you will find the info you need there.
Add a cute tag, let the kids write on it (I could not do that as my TEENAGERS were “out” with friends when I came to that part!!!) and I needed to get the pic taken.
I did take this image by our fireplace in our house (actually now in my SALON!!) yeah!!! I love it. BUT……knowing that too much paper can clog a flue, I am NOT recommending this for indoor fireplaces, only outdoor ones, or a campsite.
I will be adding a small (ok, maybe big) tribute to the #1 father EVER!!! my OWN dad!!! He was so wonderful beyond words, but I am going to try. I want to hear the #1 memory from YOUR dad as well, so get your memory ready, there will also be a random drawing involved with all comments left on that post. 🙂 I would say it is high time for another give-away, wouldn’t you agree???
