Great Crafting Weekend!

Oh what a weekend! It was the February Crafty Girls Workshop, and we had a great time!
Check these Crafty Girls out!  
During the lunch break, I took a second to get a couple of pictures of the "organized mess" going on! That is a lot of crafting! 
Of course, at every crop, there is that one "die hard" that doesn't want to each their lunch until they finish their project! Way to hang in there Carole! 

I wanted to show you one of the crafts that was available at the workshop. Do you remember the hanging frame I made a couple of weeks ago?
Well, I wanted a companion piece to go with it. So, this is what I came up with...
This is a super cute HOME block set. A while back, I saw something similar to this in blogland, but it was made without the background papers and stand. I wanted it to match the hanging frame, so that is why I decided to add the papers.

We started the kit with the wood blocks and we painted them. Cut our background papers and letters. The "O" is made by taking one of the blocks and shaping it into a heart.
Then, we adhere the paper and letters with Mod Podge. 
Then, tied the black and white polka dot ribbon to the heart and set the blocks up on the stand. 
Once set up, it looks pretty cute, wouldn't you agree?
