I used to be crafty...

Back in the day, I was quite crafty and a bit artsy but that has long passed. No time I suppose. I may have to bust out my craft skills again. I used to paint ALL KINDS of things for my sorority, paddles especially, and I must say they were just as cute as the ones the Greek store would do if not better. I mean, people would come back after the first one I did for them so I assume they liked the finished product? ;-)

Anyway, I want letters for Mark's room. Looking at Zach's and some others online today....I am thinking to myself, surely I could do just that if not better, right? I mean, they charge like $15 letter. And Mark is only 4 letters so 2 of those would probably be plain (polka dots or stripes) and there for easy and only 2 I would have to attempt real art of trains on! I may have to give it a try cause I think I could get the plain wood letters and some fresh paints for under $30. Save me some moola at least and if they came out REALLY bad...I would only be out $30! HA!


  1. i made my own letters for both kids, there was no way I was going to pay that much! You can totally do it and it will be fun! Go for it!

  2. I'll do it, too. Let's have a paint party!

  3. sounds like a plan, al! needs to be in the evening when Z Man is sleeping so we wont be disturbed!!
