JOY Blocks

I told you I was obsessed with making blocks.

I know these have been done over and over again by others, but I had to do them because it was all new for me.

I purchased a Silhouette machine a couple of months ago and it has been so fun being able to vinyl projects. I can tell how people can get hooked. I keep thinking of what else I can do with vinyl.

Oh yeah, and guess what? I'm done making gifts and it is only December 9th-booyah!

Zoey's Apron

Awhile ago, I made all of my kids aprons. Zoey wasn't even born yet and so she doesn't have one. She doesn't seem to care because I see her wearing her sibling's aprons with no problem.

I thought I would make her own today.

I hear Santa is probably getting her something to go with that apron for Christmas-we're pretty close, Santa and I.

Can't wait to see her with everything! She's going to be a little mom.

Maybe she'll cook me something!

Last Name Wooden Blocks

I love making blocks! I love making blocks so much that I need a new blade on my table saw.

I made my Mom some for a Christmas gift. I really like making Christmas gifts for the Moms because they always seem to enjoy homemade gifts.

Or maybe they are just to nice to say otherwise.

I love visiting my parents house, and seeing what homemade "treasures" they have kept over the years. Makes me feel special and valued seeing the things they have kept that I have made!
