I have since branched out into script words and plaques which you may like painted to suit your décor, I have painted ~ Laundry, Playroom, Grow, Laugh & Play to name a few. Why did you decide to start a micro business: I started Lizzy’s Letters when I couldn’t find the same spelling as my daughter’s name, and have found quite a few people with the same problem and so my business was born.

French toast with whipped cream and strawberries Ingredients 3 eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 cup milk 1/4 cup cream 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 1 tablespoon icing sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 4 x 2.5cm-thick slices bread 2 tablespoons butter Cream to serve Fresh Strawberries to serve Instructions 1. Combine eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, icing sugar and cinnamon in a large jug. Whisk with a fork until well combined. 2. Pour mixture into a shallow ceramic dish. 3. Preheat oven to 180째C. Dip 2 brioche slices in milk mixture for 30 seconds to 1 minute each side or until well soaked. Hold over dish to drain. 4. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until bubbling. Add soaked brioche. 5.Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until golden. 6. Top with a dollop of cream, fresh cut strawberries and your favourite sign for dad.

Egg in Toast Ingredients 1/2 tablespoon butter 1 slice white bread 1 egg Instructions Butter both sides of bread. Cut a circular hole in the centre of the slice of bread or cut out a shape such as a heart for that special touch – about 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Heat a frying pan or griddle on medium-high heat. When the frying pan is hot, place the bread into the pan and let it brown for one minute. Flip the toast over and let the other side brown for one minute. Break the egg into the hole in the bread. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to the consistency you prefer.

Crunchy Chocolate Biscotti Ingredients 3 egg whites 1/3 cup(s) vegetable oil 2 tablespoon(s) strong brewed coffee 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract 1 2/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour 3/4 cup(s) sugar 1/2 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder 1/4 teaspoon(s) baking soda 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt 1/3 cup(s) hazelnuts or other nuts, chopped and toasted 1/3 cup(s) dried tart cherries Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease large cookie sheet. In a small bowl, beat together egg whites, oil, coffee, and vanilla. In a large bowl, stir together flour and remaining ingredients until well mixed. Pour egg mixture onto dry ingredients and stir until combined. Shape mixture into two 12" by 1" logs; place both on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes. Transfer one log to cutting board. Slice diagonally into scant 1/2inch-thick biscotti. Arrange biscotti, cut side up, on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining log, using a second cookie sheet if necessary. Bake 20 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight jar up to 1 month.

DIY Picture Frame What you'll need 5 popsicle sticks Craft glue Craft paint (2 to 3 different colors) Paint brushes Small ornament (we used a bird) Bowl Water A jar (optional) Thin cardboard Tape Scissors

How to make it 1. Submerge one popsicle stick in water for 3 to 4 hours. 2. Take the stick out and bend it in a curve. Hold it for a while until it dries. If it takes too long to dry, try taping it inside a jar and leaving it there for a while. 3. Pick one color and paint 2 sticks on the front, sides and back. Then paint 2 other sticks with another color. 4. If the ornament you picked needs paint, go ahead and paint it with a new color. 5. Glue the 4 sticks together in a square. Then glue the ornament on top of the sticks (whichever postion you prefer). 6. Cut a piece of cardboard the size of the drawing or picture and tape it to the back of the frame. Leave space on the top stick. 7. Glue the curved stick to the back of the top stick of the picture frame. 8. Now stand the picture frame up! It is ready for Dad's desk or night stand!

Dad & Me Coffee Mug What you'll need White coffee mug Enamel paints: black, red, blue or pink Thin pointed paint brush How to make it

1. Be sure that coffee mug is clean and dry. 2. Use child's thumb and red enamel paint to add the "daddy" figure on the cup. You can make the figure larger if it looks too small. 3. Use blue paint (or pink for a girl) and pointing finger to add the child on the cup. 4. Use a thin paint brush to draw on legs and arms, connect arms between characters so that they are holding hands. 5. Use thin paintbrush to add hair. 6. Use thin paintbrush to write "Daddy" above the characters and "& me" below the characters. 7. Bake mug in the oven as directed on the back of the enamel paint bottle. You can also air dry, however air drying requires many days as opposed to a few hours in a low temp oven.

FREE Father’s Day Wall Print Dad’s are very special people. They help us learn how to ride our first bike, they encourage us to explore more and they promote persistence, among other things. Dad’s are an important part of any child’s life and however you plan to celebrate this year, it's also good to take a moment to talk as a family about why your dad is so special and tell him what you really enjoy about having him as your dad. Here is one way...give him a wall print!! This FATHER print is simple, bright and let’s dad know exactly how you see him. You can download this A4 wall print for FREE, print it on your home printer or take it to Officeworks and have it printed on quality paper stock. Frame it and give it to your special dad this Father’s Day.

To my dad, I remember the things we used to do together...drives to nana’s house near the beach and saying “I can see the water”... Going to work with you in your work truck and checking those sprinklers ... It’s moments like those that remind me of the special times we spent together. I appreciate everything you have done for me and the sacrifices you made and I believe it’s part of what has made me who I am today. We are both survivors and we share a bond. I appreciate you dad and all that you are. I Love You xx
