Today we come to you live from
We've taken this family show on the road!
We've seen a LOT of this:
and some more of this:
There's not a whole lot of scenery between Colorado and Oklahoma.
But these girls kept us laughing:
Sara's BFF, Taylor and Sara...
We are here to bring our baby girl to college. Ah, bittersweet...
The perfect time to talk about these family love blocks I made.
I made these back in February and forgot to post them until I
Hers are sparkly...my next ones will be, too!
I started with something like these:
Since I did these in February they were kind of Valentine's themed.
I used scrapbook papers in pinks...
printed out some L.O.V.E on pinky backgrounds...
...printed out some pictures measured to the block sides...
Mod Podge is my friend...
That's how all the paper was applied to the blocks.
On these I sponged some black craft paint on the edges for that artsy look...
I would take some other pics of them, but my husband took
them to work to display on his desk.
I think he liked them.
I made another set for Ruby's mom...
this time I used pastel colors and distressing ink
around the edges and sanded lightly.
These are simple to do and make great gifts.
Grandkids, pets, families...
These blocks are only 2 inches across,
you could go smaller, but without the same impact.
3 - 4 inch blocks would be awesome...
If you make some...I'd like to see them.
Now excuse my while I locate my tissue box.
She's due on campus tomorrow morning...sigh.
