Images from patents my grandfather holds for the folding umbrella. Yes, it's ok to use images like these! ;o)

Thanks Christine and Tina! He was very touched! I'm thinking of doing something more permanent with the decals we have. Would be really fun as a lampshade!

Caroline I loved reading the blog post! What a great story and beautiful gift wrap!
Great blog post Caroline I really enjoyed reading it. This is such a awesome design, I know your dad must have been surprised and thrilled to get a gift wrapped in such a wonderful unique paper created by you. Dad's cherished the hand made stuff we make them, my dad's favorite was a hand tooled leather wallet with his airplane on it , he loved showing it off and it gave him excuses to tell his fly stories.
Thanks Christina! Yes, he was - I think he had about 8 patents total. Most were about the folding umbrella, improvements to the design, but one was for a corkscrew and another for a garment hanger. He was an immigrant from Russia who came to the US when he was 17, so I think it's extra cool!
I can't believe your grandfather holds patents to the folding umbrella! Is he an inventor? Very cool design with a cool story behind it!
Thank you Amy! I was looking for photos and found that one and just HAD to include it - totally captures my father's personality! He's 83 now, so it's fun to see him at that age :o)
This is so clever, and I really enjoyed your tutorial on the SP blog. Loved the photo of your dad at the bbq, cracked me up! Beautifully done!
Thank you, Melanie! I'm blushing!
wow! this is awesome!! how very cool :)
Thank you Kelly and Mariska! It was such a fun project! My favorite part is the photo of my Dad. ;o)
