I have two small boys and not much time to myself. This blog is MY space, where I can be creative and get inspiration from others.

Month to Month Blocks
This is a project I did about a year ago. I made enough blocks to be able to spell out each month. There are a total of 27 blocks and they are 5 1/2 inches square, and 1 1/2 inches deep. I thoroughly sanded each block (this part took the longest). Then I painted each block and distressed all of the edges. I mod podged a letter on each block. (though in hindsight I would probably do a letter on each side to cut down on the number of blocks, but that would take a lot of figuring out which letters you never need together!) This is an easy project, but it is time consuming. If you want to try this yourself you may want to do a month at a time and build up your 'collection' as you go.

I think this would be cute with some scrapbook paper behind the letters too. My taste is more simple, and that is why I chose to do it this way. If you do attempt this, please email me pics, I would love to see your version!
