Craft group

Every month or so I do a little craft group with some ladies from my church. Here is what we are doing this month.

This is obviously for Easter. I thought it would be nice to have an Easter decoration that represented the real reason for Easter. For this I cut a 1x8 cut down to a square. I used my crafting best friend, my Silhouette, to cut the lettering from vinyl.

The next craft was a suggestion from one of the ladies in the group. She wanted some blocks that her kids could play with that would have some religious pictures on them to help teach at the same time. So here is what we are doing for that. Nothing fancy, but my kids have really enjoyed playing with them.

I got the pictures here. I downloaded them, inserted them into Word and sized them to 3x2.25. I cut a 2x4 into 2.5 inch blocks, printed the pictures on card stock and adhered with Mod Podge. There are 10 double sided blocks. I put several layers on them so they would withstand the beating kids put on toys. I love this idea though! You could really do anything on them, letters, numbers, shapes, family pictures. Great idea to personalize your kids toys.

I still haven't gotten to my lamp project. Hopefully later this week though!
