I apologize, but I am not currently able to take orders from new customers. I am too busy with my four children at this time. If this changes in the future, I will remove this notice. I am leaving my blog up as a reference for myself and friends. If you are family, friends, or past customers, you may still contact me to see if I'm able to complete an order at this time or not. Thank-you!!

12 x 12 tiles

Here are a couple of different 12x12 tiles that I've done recently.  The first couple are great for Christmas.  The vinyl for a 12x12 tile is $5 and you can usually buy tiles for about $1.  These are super easy to do yourself -- no painting; just stick the vinyl on!

Block Quotes

This first block/sign would make a fabulous teacher gift this year!  It is about 5.5 x 13 inches and thick enough to stand on its own.

This little block was a piece of scrap wood and I just needed a little saying to put on it.  I remembered a friend picking this saying last year when she was making a bunch of Christmas gifts, and I thought it was great- so true!

Remember, when you place a custom order, you can use any unique quote, saying, or word.  Think about a phrase that your family used a lot or that you have grown to love and live by.  Stick it on a block or the wall, and you have a constant reminder!

Stackers

This first stacker comes from a favorite children's song at church "I am a Child of God".

I've made this stacker before, but here it is in a different font.

And here's the other version:


New for Christmas

Here are a few new Christmas items that I made for my craft show this year.  First a few simple blocks.




Then I made up sets of 3 Christmas trees.  I like these first ones the best...they have silver glitter painted on and little red jewels.

These other two sets I still need to add the little jewels (oops, I forgot).  I tried this one with red glitter.

And these green trees have the silver glitter.  Fun for a shelf or mantle somewhere.

I have an idea to make some kind of advent countdown with blocks....hopefully I'll get to that before long!  I also some nativity clip art and hope to make up a nativity set out of stained blocks - perfect for little kids to play with.

New for Fall

Here are a few new fall items.  I used the following design on a wooden plaque before and this time I put it on a tile.

Cute tree blocks.  They are made from 2x4 wood and stand 5, 6, and 7 inches tall.

As I was making more Ho Ho Ho blocks, I thought I should make same fall blocks out of the same 4x4 post.  I just love the fall paint colors!

Some gobble, gobble blocks for Thanksgiving.  My friend Kim designed and made this before.


And a simple Give Thanks single block.


Signs

Here are some of the signs I've recently made...a few are new and a few I have made before.










The general rule for pricing on my finished signs is:
5.5" x 24" - $20
5.5" x 30" - $22
5.5" x 36" - $25
7.5" x 24" - $25

Magnet Picture Stands

It seems that the "best-seller" at my craft show on Saturday was this Magnet Picture Stand.  Here's yet another variation on using metal and magnets to quickly display a picture.  These can sit on a shelf, dresser, counter, hutch...any small, flat surface.  Another unique use is to use one as a recipe holder on your kitchen counter.  We made them with two different variations - 1. with the metal slanted back a little and perhaps easier to read/see this way and 2. with the metal straight up and this way you could potentially use both sides of the metal (place pictures on both sides)...to put on a table where both sides are seen.  I haven't decided yet if I like one way better than the other!  Anyway, I made 11 of them for the show and they all sold!  They are $10 each.





I have to admit that this one was my favorite:

I just love that ribbon (found at Hobby Lobby) and of course I love that picture of my daughter!  So cute!

More of the Block Magnet Picture Frames

I already posted this picture of my new block magnet picture frame.


Here are a few more examples with different colors and wording.  I love using my ribbon on these to add lots of color, and I also enjoyed making matching marble magnets.  These are $12 each and make for a fun Christmas gift!

More Coming Soon!

A big THANK-YOU to all of you who stopped by my booth at the Dayton Autumn Celebration and are now visiting my blog. I had a great time at the show and am excited to make many custom orders for you. I have been working very hard the last couple weeks, and I have lots of new pictures to add to my blog. They will be up in the next several days. Also, I hope to add some new features to my blog soon, including my fonts and vinyl colors.



If you are interested in seeing my fonts, please e-mail me at jennywhiting@gmail.com and I can send them to you as a pdf file. I can also send you the price chart for the vinyl. When you are ordering only vinyl (not on a painted board), the vinyl price is determined by the height and length of the lettering.



Feel free to contact me with any questions. I apologize that I don't have a fancy website yet with more capabilities for ordering, but maybe one day! Currently I can only accept cash or check or I can send you a PayPal invoice if you'd prefer that.
Thank-you!
