I didn't get any giveaways set up for the holidays, so I'm making up for it now! I love birthdays! I'm lucky to have a January birthday...because while the rest of the world mourns a gray "Monday 'month' of the year", I get to look forward to a month filled with birthday celebrations.  I am looking forward to more smiley eye wrinkles, more scraggly gray hairs and all that comes with age. I've thrived the last year, lost 55 pounds and am the strongest and healthiest I've ever been.  I really feel like I'm in my prime/mid-life crisis...and I love it! Speaking of birthdays, here's a favorite! It's funny...one of my most clear birthday memories was when I was 13. I woke up, got ready for school and...crickets.

Scrabble Tile Names Framed Word Art DIY

 Scrabble Tiles Family Name Framed Word Art DIY Scrabble!  Do you like playing Scrabble?  I love this game, it's one of my favorites.  I love spelling and word games.  However, no one likes to play them with me--haha.  This is the solution! Make a custom piece to hang in your home or give as a gift.  Make one for grandma and grandpa with all the grandkid names.  Do your family names fit in a scrabble layout?   We did 3 sets of family names and were able to work out each family pretty quickly.  I don't have any hints on making it easier. Begin by sketching out on paper the best way to arrange the letters. My cute friend bought a Scrabble game at the thrift store to make a family name piece for a friend.  Then she created one for her family.  The leftover pieces came to me...but there were not the letters I needed.  Easy fix!
