Memory Block

My kids and husband love to collect seashells. When my dear friend Suzie gave us a decal for our cars (and sneakily slipped an extra in my bag), I came up with an awesome way to merge the shells with the decal to create a gorgeous Memory Block to commemorate our time at the Resting Place.

Memory Block

This was really easy to make. I picked up an empty glass block at a craft store and put the decal (which Suzie cut out of vinyl using her Silhouette) on the front. Next, I loaded it up with shells (and that super cool starfish) and put the top on it. Part of me wants to add a light (there’s a plug that would allow it), but I also really like it how it is.

If you could make a Memory Block, what would you put inside it? What would you put on the outside? 

Without Her, We’d Be Less Green

I truly believe when you don’t plan blogs, the best memories present themselves. Tonight is no different!

Tonight we met Michelle for A’s 4 photos. Anytime we cross town near rush hour, we leave the truck at my work. Chatting away, Greg sped past RIDC with no thought. Until…

“DADDY!!!! OUR TRUCK! Where’s our truck?”

Without her, we would have cruised on home, leaving the truck at the office, only realizing our flub when it was too late. Her sweet memory saved us about 30 miles and some green.

Now? She won’t let it go, “I told you!”…thanks, A for being so smart!
