These are tied with ribbon b/c they were sold as a set.  But, they look great stacked without it.

These were actually left over pieces of railing from the guys who built my porch.  They were going to throw them away so I asked them for a few.  I just chopped 'em up, painted the front, stained the rest and added some die cut letters.  These letters were cut with a Cricut I borrowed from a friend (the coolest machine on earth...I need to buy one!)  But, I have used stickers, chipboard, even stenciled some letters on.  Opportunities are endless.

I love these words...LIVE, LAUGH & LOVE and never get sick of reading them.  They may be simple words, but they pack a real punch!

Well, like I say itis still in the box. I need to make time to play as I l love words also. I got a bunch of cartridges with lots of cutouts to learn about.

Great little junk project you put together Marybeth. I’m into different way to create lettering so I’ll have to take a better look at a Cricut.

Delightful project from leftover building materials. Thanks for showing members of JMS that beautiful things can come from the scrap pile. Awesome!

Take care,
