I joined a ladies' small group at my church that meets once a week for a bit of parenting advice, Bible study, encouragement, and time to chat with other moms while we work on a craft or project. I love being a part of this group! Every week I come home with fresh ideas to help me in my parenting role, and I've had a chance to be creative or at least productive. The crafts are prepared for us ahead of time so we just show up and get to do the fun part of making the project- perfect for tired moms who want some down time. Recently, we made a set of blocks that say "Fall". It was not hard to do, but the end result was so cute. The clever part was using die cut letters; they look so much better than if we'd tried to paint them. We adhered the letters with Mod Podge which is a kind of glue that you brush over the entire block. It dries clear with a bit of a shine.
|The blocks are four and five inches tall. We roughed them up with sand paper|
after we finished painting them, but before we adhered the letters.
|Baby M was hanging out with me while I took pictures of my fall project.|
|Now she's trying to run off with my blocks so I|
switch my focus and photograph her instead.
What a cutie!!
