I have to brag!

I know I said that I was taking a short break from blogging but I just couldn't help myself. I am going to try and make this quick though. I have been wanting to buy big wooden letters spelling "Evans" to hang on the wall over the changing table in the baby's room. When I found some that I liked yesterday at a super cute baby store in Atlanta I was sort of surprised that they were so expensive. Sooooo, my mom and I hit up Michael's Arts and Crafts store and made a few purchases totalling about $40. Here is what I came up with!And the finished product!!!I am so happy with the way they turned out and pretty impressed that they actually look as good as they do. I can't wait to get them home and hung up. My mom and I decided that the ribbon they were going to hang from wasn't going to be strong enough so my dad drilled a hole in the back of each on so that the actual block can hang from a tiny nail in the wall. Then I will just tack up the ribbon so it will appear to be hanging from it. I just hope I am good at tying bows!!

We are off to the lake house tomorrow and I can't wait! We are stopping at a different outlet mall on the way up but god help me if I buy anything else. I will definitely not have internet this weekend so no blogging. Hope everyone has a good weekend!!

Very very cute! I was amazed when I bought some letters for a friend and they turned out to be quite expensive! I think making them could be the way to go!
