Below are the letters I make. On a family holiday in Canada about 5 years ago I bought some wooden letters for my daughter's room. I have never seen anything similar in the UK. I sourced a guy in the States to cut the same shape letter for me (as in Molly and Love) and I order these in bulk then paint and distress them myself. These have always been really popular especially as no-one else in the UK has them. Molly is distress and love is plain.

This weekend I have been busy making wooden blocks. This is a new thing for me. I have been making wooden wall letters for years so this is a natural progression for me. I usually distress everything I paint after them as I feel it gives them more character. I also plan on making a load of these kind of blocks for Halloween to sell and if they go well will make some for Christmas. I am also going to make some with kids names on them with a block separating first and second names with either a heart on for a girl or a star for a boy. I am sure these will go well in my Christmas parties (I hope so anyway!). My husband cut me a load of 2.5inch square blocks which I painted and sanded a few times. I then made letter stencils (using laminating pockets) and painted the letters on. They have come out quite well and I am really pleased with them. Only thing is I now am on such a roll that I wish I could take a few days off work to keep going with them. I hate to stop once I'm in the zone! I do plan on putting some things on etsy to sell but will wait until I have made some more - keep looking!
