Personalized Wedding Gift

Here is the personalized gift set that I made for a wedding that we attended over the weekend:: A wooden sign {about 4 x 11 with a sawtooth on the back for hanging} personalized with wedding date and last name, as well as a set of notecards for the couple to use either as wedding thank you's or for general correspondence from this day forward. {pun intended!}

I think a personalized wall hanging like this would make a great baby gift too . . . on some really fun paper with less formal fonts. I'll have to keep that in mind until the next baby I know comes along!

Baby Blocks

We have friends who just had their first little bundle . . . a boy! When I was thinking about a baby gift I wanted to make for him {ok, really it was for his parents. He couldn't care less!} I was thinking about something personalized and bouncing some ideas around in my head when I realized that his first and last name both had 5 letters. Thanks guys, that worked out so well for this project. His little set of letter blocks spells his first name on one side and his last name on the back. The other 4 sides are just fun, cute, boy-ish papers. I love the way they turned out and wanted to add one more little personalized item to the gift, so I etched his name in a bottle and added some change . . . you know, to start on his college savings and all! A personalized, recycled piggy bank of sorts.
