Finding the Perfect Balance!

More Crafts

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life – learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.                 -Robert Fulghum

I wanted to whip-up a little birthday gift for my friend, and this is the perfect quick and easy handmade present!  I don’t know if it’s a by-product of being a former English teacher, a librarian, and of course, a lover of books, but I adore any project that uses letters and words. So, I’ve been collecting board games from the thrift store and using the pieces to make Scrabble tile message boards for the special people in my life.  Today, I met my dear friend for a birthday breakfast, and wanted to reminder her to cut-back, just say “no”, and quite simply make more time for herself!  (Good advice, wouldn’t you say?)  Just take a Scrabble tile holder and a little glue (I use E-6000) and admire your “instant message.”  Once you start, you will be thinking of all the important words you want to share!

  1. I LOVE this! I’ve been collecting Scrabble tiles for years (hubs LOVES Scrabble, but he studies the dictionary so I no longer play with him). I’ve made Christmas ornaments, thumb tacks, and most recently filled a glass jar/votive holder on my buffet. Now I want to go find all those other cool board game letters to add some variety!
