I don't know about you, but I love Scrabble (and I rock at it)! Over the years Scrabble has become a staple of my family get-togethers and lazy days with friends. Hence my excitement over the fact that I have recently found cute Scrabble crafts everywhere! There are Scrabble pillows, shelves, place cards, magnets, cufflinks, wine charms, coasters, key chains and so much more. All are easy to make and most can be found on Etsy.
With Mother's Day coming up I thought I'd bring attention to one of the best gifts I have ever made for my mom (according to her). While in college I was unable to see my mom for her birthday because she was in England horseback riding with Olympic riders (yes, she is so cool) so I left her a birthday surprise at her place. The surprise was an airplane ticket out to Colorado to see me (she liked this) and a Scrabble board that I had made just for her (she loved this). I will admit that I am not at all an artsy person but I decided to try. I started by making a list of words that I felt reflected our relationship (dearest, mother, daughter, love, together, friends, advice, rose, equine...). Then I went to the store and bought Scrabble (the old fashion kind). One by one I put down the letters/words onto the board. Once I had the board looking like I wanted and had used most of the letters, I grabbed a glue gun and began to glue down the letters. I let that dry and wrote a brief note on the side of the board. Ever since, my mom has raved about it and kept it in shadow box in her home.
