What to do with that letter E

I found this letter E at the thrift store for $1.00 and gasped......WHY?  Because a letter like this is one of those popular letters that you never find in the discount bin :)  So I bought it for my daughter since her name starts with E and turned it into this:

scrapbook paper, mod podge, ribbon, buttons and felt never looked so cute!

That is so cute. My daughter's name is Emmy. I have just a plain white E, I might have to steal this idea!

Cute! I love your blog! How on earth do you have time to do all of these wonderful crafts with 4 kids? I have 1 child with one on the way and can do a few crafts- but you are so good at it! Cute stuff! Stop by and say hi!
