Cubes...

So finally I get to share one of the things that I made all the mothers in our lives for Mother's Day! Cubes!!! I love them. They are 4" square - acrylic frames. I loved the wood block craze that everyone got into a while back, but I could never bring myself to do anything with them because they might get dusty or dirty and I couldn't clean them. Well thank you Walmart - problem solved! These little suckers sell for $2.44. I bought all they had at every Walmart in Jacksonville. Seriously - like 50+ of them. I made sets for my mom, my mother-in-law, my sister, my sister-in-laws - you get the idea!

This is the set that I made for my sister-in-law Jennifer. I made 1 cube for each kid - and I ended up making 1 for the whole family with pictures of all the kids (not shown).
