More Valentine's Ideas

I had a craft day with my friends today.  It started out nutty and it was sort of a bad day for me from the get go, but in the end this was my salvation and made everything going on this morning much more bearable.  Oye!

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.  :)

This is some subway art that I got off of a website but didn't like some of the phrases or fonts, so I changed about 4 lines of it.  Super fun and super easy!  You just upload the .jpg to Sams or Costco or where ever you get your photos printed and frame that baby, how easy is that?  I love projects like that.  Easy and it makes me feel productive.  Hahaha!
