My hubby and I had a date all planned this morning. We had a wedding to attend just outside of Boston at 10am this morning. We left plenty early with the babysitter at home with the kids. But since we were only going 35 to 40 miles an hour with the snow, we decided to turn around. It was not safe and we were not sure we would even make it on time! I was pretty bummed but happy to be home safe and out of the storm.The bonus is I have time to blog. This is my second semi-paper craft project. Go ahead and copy, it is not my original idea but leave yourself plenty of time as each step has some drying time involved and letters are not always available. I used scrap 2x4 and cut them to size using my hubby's chop saw. It makes me nervous and I did not worry about being exact - good thing I like the uneven look! Then I stained the block (let them dry), painted letters (let them dry), Martha Stewart modgepodged them (let them dry and I love that stuff!) and then glued it all together, then they dry some more!!! Not the fastest gift but I loved the way they came out so much I made some with our name. Ummm, no those pics will have to be later. BUT that is the new SU designer paper coming in the January catty! Almost like Christmas waiting for that. Only 18 more days. Best part is I don't have to shop or wrap!I think my friend liked them even if they were after Christmas. And I have ideas for more words as soon as I see the new designer papers!
I'm headed out to watch the boys snowboard! Have a great day!
