A new twist on the old block...

When I did my first blog giveaway, Hubby helped me make a bunch of these chalk blocks. Four went to Helena (winner of the prize - see lime green blocks in the photo below) and I ended up using a few sets of four as Christmas gifts. We had a little assembly line going... Hubby is the kind of guy who doesn't throw stuff away. Like, it's bad sometimes. Anyway! He had a larger board in the garage and while he was cutting the standard sized blocks, he cut a few out of the larger board. I'm not one to waste much either, so I painted a couple and gave them as gifts. The "wish" picture above was for my niece, Savannah, and this one for her brother, Ryne:

The kids loved them ~ and I had fun making and giving them. Isn't that what it's all about?!?!


PS: I'm in the process of setting up an Etsy shop and will be selling some of these blocks there. I'll let you know when it's up and running.
