Tatertots and Jello did. A couple of my buddies liked it too, and so we decided to make it! It was SO much work, and pretty expensive because of the molding mostly, but I love the finished product. I am also anti-pink, so we changed that color to red and reversed the black and silver paints. The vinyl was a pain in the rear too, because it is a 6 foot board, and that is REALLY hard to get the vinyl to go on straight and not go crooked on ya. It was so beautiful though, when it came time to pick off the background pattern's vinyl after painting the silver on, I had a friend and 2 sweet little ones helping me with my board and it still took over an hour just to get all those hundreds of little pieces picked off. I felt insane for awhile. It was definitely an intensive project, but a labor of LOVE.....hardy har har! :)

This is two identical sets of the same blocks. They words are different because my friend is a genius and the blocks are double sided so no matter which side of the counter you look at them from, they are cute. And they are cute! We got the idea from a craft blog floating around out there and this is our groups spin on it. It didn't cost much at all. You just use 4x4 post and cut it at 3 1/2" each to make them blocks. Then you need 3 colors of paint and vinyl which I got from Chatty Walls. After your paint is dry, distress the edges by sanding and tie tulle around it and you got yourself some conversation blocks. :)

Little Dresses for Africa. Get on there and make you some! They also have Little Britches for Boys too, I think I may try those next. :)
I mean heck, you add a few embellishments to the pillowcases and they suddenly are cute? How does this happen. I totally want to make some of these for my girls for this summer too.

Chatty Walls did the vinyl for us. They are super easy, just paint the boards red, pink and chocolate brown, distress the edges and ink the pink board with a chocolate brown ink pad, slap your vinyl on and you're done! They were so fun!
Chatty Walls did the vinyl for this as well. Slap on the vinyl and you are done.
