Wood VS Cricut!

Well I told you in an earlier post that I had found a way to mix my love for the cricut with my husbands love for wood working.  Here is what we came up with.  I cut these letters out first using Winnie the Pooh font.  I cut it out in vinyl and then I put it on the wood and cut out the letters using a scroll saw.  My husband did the rest.  He hand cut the dove tails and cut the wheals out.  He also started with a big block of wood that he cut to make the blocks and used a router that cut out the groves in both sides to add the letters too.  I am very proud of this project that my husband and I did together.  It is the first woodworking project that Paul has done since before he was sick 3 years ago.  I am very glad that I was able to be a part of this.  We presented this wagon to my nephew last week.  He will be 2 in Jan.  He loved it and played with it alot.  We are currently working on another one for another nephew who turned 2 at the beginning of the month.  We are going to give this to him at Christmas. If you want more information on how we made this wagon please leave me a comment on this blog with a way to get a hold of you and I will get you more information.

What's going on???

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last couple of days.  I am super excited.  I haven't had a chance to work on some of the challenges but I have been working on a special project with my husband that I hope to post in the future.  We are combining my love for paper crafting(using my cricut) and his love for woodworking to make some really cool birthday/Christmas presents.  I am soooooo excited and will be posting more in the new future!  I can't wait for you all to see how creative my husband is.  He was very ill and we almost lost him a couple years ago.  He had to have a tracheotomy and had a trech for 2 1/2 years.  during this time he was not allowed or able to do woodworking.  It is so incredible now to see him well and back working with wood.  Side Note:  If you or someone you know suspects that they may have Sleep Apnea please have a sleep study done.   It is not something to be ignored.  You can die from it and it can cause so many other complications.  So Please Please Please take it from a family that has lived through a nightmare to take care of this and don't just ignore it. Ok I need to get back to our special little project.  I hope to get some challenges completed tonight after dark.  I need the daylight hours to work on our special little project :)

God Bless,
