Vintage Baby Block Swap

Ok so I cheated by using paper that was a perfect match for this project....I promise my singular one for the swap will be Vintage with lace, buttons and embellies on it

Benjamin-James Philps decided they were so cool he wanted to get his hands on them too......

...although I'm not entirely sure they'll withstand a mauling from his dribbling mouth!

I have been meaning to get on with this for ages....and then a visit to a super inspiring blog made me pull my finger out!! Check out this blog Mod Podge Rocks it's so cool you'll freeze!!

After gessoing and mod podging these blocks they only really needed a few simple papers.

For the swap the rules are:

1) You must be local to my area

2) First names on the comments get a place

3) I have only 5 blocks 6 if you include mine, unless anyone else has any more and would be willing to make this a bigger swap by donating them...please let me know

4) Blocks are to be decorated in a Vintage Baby theme...ABC's, toys, cute babies etc....

Participants are:

1: Ruth
2: Polly
3: Helena
4: Sue
5: Kate

They are only small but awkward to post due to the new sizing situation. I may deliver some by hand but if your name is added to the list can you please e-mail me with your address.

Oh and you know me for deadlines....it'll take as long as it takes!

Love Ruth xxx
