word blocks giveaway

**** this giveaway is now closed****


so here’s the long awaited reveal/giveaway!


i made these letter blocks for rory’s side of the family for christmas. my dad cut down two 4×4′s for me, and i sanded them down on his power sander. (not by hand, i would have given up after one, no doubt) then i painted them…(many, many coats), and stuck the vinyl letters on. wha-la!

i got the idea and project info here. i did not think of this myself, i’m not that smart. lol. i could barely handle sorting out the letters for each block.

so, the plan is, you put certain letters (4) on each of the 7 blocks, and they can spell out 16 different seasonal words. want to know what words?

Harvest
Welcome
Faith
Family
Spooky
Friends
Winter
Freedom
Blessed
Snow
Home
Hope
Monster
Mother
Dream
Easter

the quintessential welcome sign

harvest for fall time..


and my personal favorite, monster. for halloween, or for signaling to your husband how the kids have been that day.

rory’s family, being the creative funny people that they are, found many more words to spell, like le baker, le straw, and a bunch of other ones i can’t remember! i wish i could, they were hilarious and changed a few times a day, usually when rory’s grandpa walked by, i think. ;)

so, here’s the giveaway! i’m going to give away one set of these blocks! yahoo! aren’t you so, so excited? (just act like it, ok?)

  43. Hi Ressica Jachel,
    You’re cuter than a bug, sweeter than a pea, oh my yesseree! and you could save yourself lots of shipping charges if your awesome, wonderful, mom that you inherited your craftiness from, won those blocks!

    How do I get to be a follower?

  44. I am a follower through Google Reader. I like your tutorials (especially the repurposing clothing ones). Our styles are very similar. I have two boys and I am totally jealous of the play kitchen you made with your dad!

  45. I’m a follower :) love your blog..you are so inspiring. We have two little ones and I find it hard to get time to be crafty right now. So I’m very interested in what future/quick and beautiful projects you will come up with in your limited time also. so that maybe I can get my creative butt moving. Thanks for all the inspiration :)

  46. If I don’t win these, I will have to try making them. So, hopefully I will win them. I have a lot of crafty ambition, but things don’t always seem to work out. My end results are never as good as I imagine them to be. Thanks for the giveaway.
