Keep Calm and Blog On

I was looking for somethingt to get my dad for Father's Day on the 16th June and I was thinking something Dad's Army related. I was looking through ideas on google images and could see t-shirts with 'Don't Panic' and 'Do you think that's wise sir?' and I didn't want to go along with the usual that everyone else does. 

I also know how mad people are with the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' posters, then it hit me, I could make him a Keep Calm poster. I googled it and discovered  'The Keep Calm-O-Matic'. You can basically go on there and make your own poster. You can pick a background colour or image, a small image for the top then 5 lines of text. Easy? I thought so.

To be original and go for the Dad's Army theme I thought what do a lot of people recognise but no one there seems to be no mechandise with it written on. And here is my 'Keep Calm-O-Matic' creation;

After you make the poster, you can scroll down and click to see if you want it on a mug, keyring, t-shirt etc. but for those UK-ers like me this is an American site and you can go to the UK one but from straight from 'Keep Calm-O-Matic' but do not fear! Because if you save the image to your computer you can still use it to personalise something. The website is Zazzle. I decided to go with a dark grey t-shirt.

I keep getting giddy with excitment at the thought of him opening this, kind of like my sister at times (you know what I mean!) but I know my dad and he doesn't like people watching him as he opens things so I will just have to spy on him through the window to see him open it instead!
