Yikes, it has been a LOOOO.....NG time....

...since I posted anything. Life has been keeping me busy. I have had a few orders for my altered wooden letters and I've been working on some other stuff to sell. More on that in the next couple of days. Today I'm showing you some of the letters. I've made these for baby gifts for family and friends and everyone always loves these.
I buy my letters at Walmart (I like the style they carry and they are easy to cover with paper).
I paint the letters with acrylic paint, then cover the front with patterned paper using Yes glue. After the glue has dried I sand all the edges and embellish the letters with ribbon, buttons, stamped images and anything else I can find. The girl letters get a nice dusting of fine glitter after I spray the letters with a sealer.
That's about it.
I'll be back with some goodies I posted at my new Etsy Shop either tonight or tomorrow.
Have a great day !

  3. The wooden letters are beautiful. Great gifts! Congrats on your Etsy shop!

  4. Love the letters. I'm glad for the pictures and the inspiration to go and finish the set I have waiting to be sanded. It's been over a month since I glued the paper to the letters, so I'm sure it's good and dry by now!!!

    Glad you're back. I've missed your blog.

  5. These are adorable!! I also love your little decorated boxes, too! So very CUTE!!
