It's That Time of Year

Well as things continue to get busier and stay that way I wanted to let everyone one know that I will be taking orders until Friday December 18, after that all orders will not be completed until after the new year. My family and I are preparing for some family Christmas parties this weekend and then on the 23rd are heading south!! We won't return til the 4th. Thank you for understanding. If you care to place an order during that time you are welcome to do so, just know that I will more than likely not get back to you until the 4th or 5th of January.

I have some new blocks and photo holders to post later so be sure to check back!

Something new..

I saw these on another blog I follow and just LOVED them! So I decided to give them a try and put my own touch to them.

They hold photos! So cute and festive! I have so many ideas in my head for these.....oh the possibilities!!

So you can see the size, sorry it's kinda blurry!
I plan to make more of these in a variety of styles, so keep an eye out! I am working on getting some sets together and will have them up and for sale soon!! Meanwhile if you are interested let me know and I will be happy to make some for you!!

Special Orders Out the Door!

I have to say that I have been so fortunate to have such wonderful support from my family and friends when I decided to take on this side business. I have really been enjoying making all the different blocks, and have even tried my hand at some new items.

Well to say "THANK YOU!" to my loyal followers I am offering a special discount. Place an order for blocks between now and Nov. 30, and use the secret code and get 30% off your order!!

What's the secret code you ask.....well the secret code is TOBY! Since that is my husbands name and he has been the most supportive of this project and dealt with a stressed out, sometimes ambitious wife!

P.S. I am sure you may have noticed the different colors and design to my blog, my last background is no longer available so I switched. I am hoping to have my blog redone in the next month, so I apologize for all the changes!

The new Winter Wonderland block set! I am also working on some new designs as well!
After finding some inspiration from some friends....I have come up with a new product idea....and here it is:
It is made of wood and is painted and sealed. It also comes with a ribbon tie to hang on the wall. I am still developing this idea so any feedback is GREATLY appreciated so let me have it!
