Nativity Scene on Blocks

These fun blocks were taught by Leisa earlier this month.  She assisted workshop attendees in "frosting" the blocks and easily transferring the vinyl cut images to the block.
The blocks are gorgeous in person when lit up and make for great holiday decor!

Anne of Green Gables

Today we sponsored a table at the Irving Public Library's Anne of Green Gable tea party.  This was so much fun!  How wonderful it is to be able to rummage through the creations you already have, then just add a few more items and your done with a wonderful table setting!

The blocks were the focal point of the table - a favorite of everyone who sees them.  And what a better thing to stack them on than old books from the library!!
