Remember that name, "Helmintollers". If you ever come across someone with that name, consider yourself one of the luckiest people in the world!!! Don't stalk them, but do everything in your power to keep close. :) I LOVE the Helmintollers. I love Big ones, small ones, funny ones, even ones that married the Helmintollers. They are some awesome folk, and obviously brilliant! haha
These blocks were made for some lucky little kid that will grow up knowing the Helmintoller family. Sweet little Parker is still in his mama's belly growing stronger each day. I love praying for the little ones that I get to make blocks for. So Lord, be with Parker even now. Entertain him with all the great stories you have. Fill him with gifts, abilities and a lifetime of laughter. We thank you for Parker's life and all the people who will be touched by this little reflection of you. Bless his mum and dad in the days ahead as well!
This set was $30.00 plus shipping.

Here our some blocks I did for Nancy Bishay. She is an old Canadian friend. I emphasize "Canadian" because it will make her happy. There ARE very patriotic Canadians you know. lol
These blocks literally gave me a head-ache. The "F" went missing for a little while and then everything I needed started to go missing. My little two year old had popped up before bedtime. She is cute, but AWWWWWWW!!!!!
They are different from other blocks I've done. One side spells out HOPE, and has a scripture and a design block included. The other side spells out FAITH and also includes a scripture. This is what Nancy wanted. Depending on her mood, (she has many : ) she can have a different look/word for a different day! What more could a girl want. Nice touch Nance! Hope you love them girl! Water them once a day and set them in a high sunny place.
This set of six personalized Decor Blocks (4" by 4") is $90.00

I have experienced serious, serious negative feelings for those people who feel it's time to start marketing in July for a holiday six months later.
Now that I have prefaced my feelings of disregard for these money hungry mongars, I can demonstrate serious hypocrisy by sharing with you some of my newest creations.
Yes, they are for sale. Yes, it is one hundred degrees. Yes it is July. What's really sad is that I felt, "in the spirit" while making them. I was singing Christmas carols and just having a "jingle" of a time. I had so much fun, I may have more to add in August! LOL
They are $35.00 for a set of three....and yes, you need them in your life!
I'm out, like a Christmas tree in July.

I just spent the week with one of my bestest friends in the world, and one of my biggest block fans. I think my head nearly exploded with all her encouragement. Thanks Lis. I shall dedicate my first blog to you and your sweet daughter Kate.
What do you give to your best friends little girl? Why blocks of course! lol. Here is a picture of little Kate on our Amish ride through Amish Country, and little Kate's blocks. Keep them forever Katie bug! Your auntie made them with love!
