Oh my, did I have a busy weekend. But it was well worth it, especially since I had lots of time to get some crafting done (with the hurt finger and all)!
On Friday, we had a craft night at my church. I was on the committee to help plan this all, so I’m glad it is over. It went really well. They made lots of things, but I choose to just make these blocks with pictures on them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they turned out. They were super simple. I just might make some more. Anyone want to get together for a craft day to make some?
I made one larger one and one smaller one. I wish I could have gotten a better picture of them but the camera batteries were dying and this was the best I could get. They are just wood blocks, about 8x8 for the large one and 6x6 for the smaller one. I matted a few pictures on cardstock to help give them a little pop! Add some ribbon, and done! Super cute!
It was a long night and I didn’t get home until 11:30 (which for those of you who know me, I’m an old lady and this is WAY past my bed time.) I then stayed up to make a poster to my sister-in-law, Karianne who competed in her first Triathlon on Saturday. Tell you what…Amazing! Props to her. I’m really proud of her for doing this.
Run – 3 miles
Bike – 10 miles (this included hills!)
Swim – 6 lengths of the pool (I don’t know how much that it, but it looked tiring.)
I made her this sign to hold up while we cheered her on. I hope it wasn’t too embarrassing! I had lots of fun. My father-in-law kept suggesting that the whole family do it next year. I volunteered to make a sign for everyone who did it. Someone has got to cheer them on, right?
After that, my mom and sister came over for Craft Day! We made more of these wood blocks with the vinyl lettering. Mom made the tan “give thanks”, I made the “harvest” one. Chardell was slacking and just made a ribbon.
Teasing! She made a brown “give thanks” and “let it snow”. She made it double sided. Perfect because you can use it for more than one holiday and all you have to do is swap out the ribbon. I cut out a “let it snow” for the back side of mine, but didn’t get around to putting it on.
TA-DA!!!! This is us, so proud of our blocks. Dustin was such a sweetheart and made sure to compliment us on our wonderful achievement that took us all day to make. He is such a wonderful hubby! He even brought us warm cookies and milk while we were busy working.
My sister also made these cute letters for Anna’s room. She tied ribbon and put little flowers on them. She thinks they need something else. I don’t. Any opinions/suggestions?
Stay tuned, a giveaway is coming!
