Finished Summer Blocks

These are the blocks I made for the give-away winner, Mindie. I really like how they turned out. I'm not sure what my favorite part is, but I do really like the ink on the edges of the paper. It adds depth and dimension, and I like that. Like, like, like. I think I need a knew adjective.

In other news, I'm still trying to get rid of all the crud, but it's getting better. The cough is mostly gone. At one point it was so bad I woke myself up at night coughing, and the cough was so bad I literally sat up in bed from the power of it. It rose me from the bed. The Dear was not so happy about that one. Especially because I was coughing for about twenty minutes in the middle of the night, and he gets out of bed at 4:20 in the morning. My sore throat and ear ache is also gone. Hooray! Just in time for a two week road trip to Illinois to visit my parents and extended family for my cousin, Brianne's wedding.

If I get time today I'm going to make a set of blocks for her kitchen that say Eat. At some point, when I have time, I'm going to make a set of Eat. Pray. Love. blocks. This isn't a plug for the movie though. I didn't like the movie, but I do like the sentiment that it conveys, and the versatility of the set. Good for a kitchen, living room, or dining room.

I really like this new set of blocks. I wasn't so sure about the grass and water papers, but they look great. I think inking the edges helped to bring it all together. A definite repeat on future blocks.

Now you need to put up a picture of your Eat blocks. Time to send you the picture of them?
