Handmade Gift #2 ABC Blocks

Months ago I found pre-cut wooden blocks at Goodwill, and of course I snatched them right up. $3.99 minus 30% off special, plus an additional 10% off as a student discount = a great deal.

After a coat of primer, some acrylic paint, and some sharpie permanent markers, this is what we have.

We already celebrated Christmas at my house, and I'm pleased to say that he likes them! That is, he likes to knock them over after I stack them.

Send a Thank you Message

I recieved an email from my aunt, and though I'm not a big fan of passing along forwards, this is legitimate and for such a good cause.


If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.

This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you. Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do. We can never say enough thank you's.

Thanks for taking to time to support our military!

I sent mine. Hop on over to and send yours too!

Let's Say Thanks

Week in review

Hello everyone. Between babysitting full time this past week, and everyone here being a bit sick, I haven't had time to work on Christmas presents much. I did do plenty of crafty things with the kids, but did I remember to take pictures? Nooooo. Silly me. Today the girls picked out pretty buttons and I made them into button bracelets for them. They turned out so cute, I think I'll make one for myself!
