If you find conquering the blank space at the bottom of a Father’s Day card daunting, you are not alone. It can be difficult to express yourself even if you have an ideal relationship with your father or father figure, let alone one that is more complicated. When you want to write something heartfelt but don’t know where to start, consider using one of these prompts:

That's how one Washington state woman felt about her pop, a Civil War veteran and widower who raised her and five brothers—so much so that she rallied for a day of officially recognized commemoration, and won it in 1910.
Hitting the campaign trail to create a special holiday has already been done, so now you can devote all your effort to making sure your dad gets singled out for all the good about him—and what better way to kick it off than with a card? Fathers Day cards are the embodiment of a host of strong and sometimes complicated emotions, but regardless of the state of your relationship, every dad appreciates a nod of appreciation.

Looking for a gift for the dad in your life? We think tools are some of the best gifts you can give, because they're really like saying "here, can you please finally fix that thing you've been promising to fix for three weeks?" Wait. No. That's not what I meant to say.
Tools keep on giving! That's what I meant. 'Cause when you give a guy a tool he didn't know he wanted, you'll be amazed at the...

In celebration of Father's Day and of father's who also happen to be DIYers, I've assembled some cool hand tools that just might have you scratching your head. Can you guess what they are/what they do?
Here at Curbly, we think Father's Day should get a little more play. Mother's Day is full of commercials, sections at the grocery store, fresh flowers, elementary school craft projects, and the like. But, for Father's Day? Maybe a sale at the hardware store? Some jokes about ties and cologne.
But not this year, at least not on Curbly. Yesterday, we kicked off the season with our gift guide for stylish dads, and today, we're sharing a roundup of handmade and independently printed cards from our friend and stationery professional, Carina Murray of Crow and Canary.

Either you love or hate things made from old ties. Skirts, handbags, belts have been predictably sewn from old ties. Even tablecloths and footstools have been made from the long bias-cut silk strands. Over on Dudecraft we found a refreshing twist, or should I say knot, for the familiar piece of flair.
