Love Letters

Hi, friends! I don’t know about where you are, but it’s raining something fierce here. Intense, driving, just-watch-as-it-washes-out-the-driveway-again rain. Coupled with the bursts of wind sending leaves, wind chimes, and small birds aloft, today is definitely one for staying indoors.

You might recall the post I made a few weeks back about Huxley’s “H”. Several of our friends recently had babies (including my friend Bailey, a 4th-year medical student, who had twins!!!) and we thought that letters for their nurseries would make fine, unique gifts. Using the methods outlined in that first post, Hubs whipped up the letters above for “Sophia,” “Ben”, and “Jack” respectively.

With the holidays quickly approaching, these letters would make great gifts for those with wee ones in your lives. You can get all kinds of creative with the design, evidenced by the handmade artwork on S, the slats in B, and the holes in J.

My grandmother liked them so much that, upon viewing Huxley’s letter, she put in a request for a letter of her own. Here’s hoping she loves her letter just as much as the others have been smitten with theirs.
