Fun Photo Blocks

Happy Memorial Day!  Hope everyone enjoyed their day celebrating and remembering those who have given their lives for our freedom.  We are truly blessed! 

Just wanted to share some fun photo blocks that I made for Mother's Day for my MIL.  These are all the grandkids on my husband's side of the family so I thought it was a fun way to display all the kiddos together.  I just took a 2x4, measured the size I wanted, cut, sanded, painted, sanded some more and then glued my pictures on them.  It's a fun and different way to display photos in your home.  You can always cut the blocks a little bigger than your picture and add scrapbook paper behind it, add a ribbon around the block or some cute knobs to go on the top.  All fun ways to be creative!

I've been crafting up a storm over here, sewing, quilting, modpodging and hot glueing. FUN STUFF! Wondering what I've been doing?? Well here's one little sweet project. Miss G and I were at our favorite store today - Hobby Lobby....well ok, my favorite store. I usually hear, "not Hobby Lobby!!" We just happened down the 66% off Home Decor aisle and found this cute little bird cage and thought we would add a nest and a little birdy in it to hang in G's room. It was a fun mommy daughter project. I thought it turned out pretty cute and it looks so fun hanging on the curtain rod in front of her window. Not a bad deal at $3.00 for the cage, $1.59 for the birds and $1.99 for the nests. Total cost = SWEETNESS!
