A few craft projects/presents

I was going to post these around Christmas time but I guess I forgot! The first one is a set of photo blocks that I discovered here. They turned out better than I thought they would so I was very happy with the end result. Aiden likes turning his all over to find the right heads and body parts of the people! I made the other set for my niece for a gift. The only change that I made was to add a second snap because I felt like it held together much better with 2. The second project was a photo tile that I found on someone's blog. I of course can't find it at the moment but I will try and post a link later to it. It was very easy to do and came out so cute. I made one for my in-laws that I forgot to take a picture of. Mine I wanted to do very plain colors to go with the sepia photo. You basically just find a smooth ceramic tile and mod podge your picture on there, do the same with a nice piece of scrap book paper and then add some sort of decoration in between. They also showed them on a heavy block piece of wood that had been stained and those didn't require the easel because they just stood up by themselves. Very easy and fast craft to do!


  1. Love it court! I think I may have to make one of those photo blocks for Addy!!

  2. thank you so much for taking the time to make this for Alaina. Such a thoughtful gift and I know the time that goes in to a homemade gift. I appreciate it alot. :)
