All A's for my birthday
I was going to call this "Straight A's for Mom!" but as you can see, they're more angled and curvy ;0)
In May my insanely creative daughter, Christy, posted her clever, chunky, handmade letters on her blog.
I totally loved the letters and the option of making my own for my projects and craft room. I put this on my big list of "Crafts To Do and Soon!" Doesn't everyone have a list like that? And I really planned to make some chunky letters that week. Truly. Ahem, really I did....
And then she posted a tutorial in June on making curved letters. So cool! Now I could make my own chunky curvy letters in different fonts and sizes for the neat idea I have for an "A" display in my craft room.
I was excited and planned to make some that very week.Then life happened and I got busy and distracted and....you know how this goes. But I totally wanted to make these....soon.
Okay, then it was July. Yeah, sometimes I slack with the best of them. Big plans, not alot of progress on the letters. Sigh. But I was busy doing other, important stuff. Okay.
So when she asked me what I wanted for my birthday, you know what I told her. Some "A" letters in different fonts for my craft room. And boy, did she deliver!!
Look what I got....three chunky letters in different fonts and even one she mod podged with book page scraps. Too cool!
I love the way they look! I have big plans for the other two, baby, big plans! And now I can put them together with the other "a" I have, a chunky ceramic letter I bought years ago that has survived a dozen moves.
Isn't there a saying that 3 of anything is a collection? Well, then, I am on my way. Thanks, Christy for the birthday letters! They are too cool for school, and so are you. Loves, Mom.
And here's a link to her main blog...http://christylovespaper.blogspot.com/
