-- Ranchos de Taos, NM - - Father’s Day, June 17th, is a day we set aside to remember the men who helped raise and shape us into the individuals we’ve become. On this day, we express our love for them, as well as our appreciation for everything they’ve done for us.
For many, however, adequately expressing those feelings can be difficult. The predictable tie or fishing/golf-
related items that fill store shelves this time of year become repetitive, and don’t really get the feelings across. Although time spent together with family is an invaluable gift, always appreciated by dads, having a remembrance of Father’s Day is important to them, as well.
So much attention is paid to creating handmade gifts for moms, that we often forget dads appreciate the sentiment behind a handmade creation, as well. Whether the gift is for a dad, grandfather, uncle or other significant man in your life, it will be cherished for the love that goes into making it. They also have a nostalgic quality which ensures they’ll be saved for years to come.
New Mexico craftsperson, Monica Weaver, works with Ranchos de Taos area residents, both one-on-one and in groups, who want to create unique hand-made cards and gifts for their loved ones. And, for those non-local craft lovers, Monica offers online tutorials for many of her projects.
