Our family is patriotic.

Our family loves the military.

Our family is thankful to all the men and women who have served our Country and keep us free and safe – past and present and future!

They are brave and courageous and our printable today is dedicated to them because we really are The Home of the Free Because of the Brave!

We know that our Country isn’t perfect – but when we look at other Countries out there we know that we are pretty lucky to live here in America. Thank you to those who serve, put their lives on the line and have lost their lives so we can be free!

Here is link to the free Home of the Free Because of the Brave Printable.

I Love You Most Wooden Block and Free Printable

Almost every night, I tuck my oldest son into bed – his name is Quinn and he is four. After prayers, he climbs into bed, I pull up his sheets and layer his blankets on one by one – in the order he wants me too. I talk to him and ask his questions about the day and then before I leave I bend over, really close to his face and I whisper “I love you!” He answers back with “I love you!” So I tell him “I love you More!” and he tells me that he loves me more – so I tell him that I love him the MOST! But he insists that he loves me the most. Sometimes we are serious and quiet and sometimes we use silly voices – and it is one of my most favorite things! For his room, I decided I wanted to make a fun print with our little moment on it so I whipped up this I Love You Most Wooden Block and Free Printable!

I made and designed the printable but decided that I didn’t want to just display it in a frame – I wanted something more rustic and fun to match his room. This past weekend we cleaned out our garage and I found a piece of an extra 2×10 just kicking around so I decided to use that as a wooden block and apply the printable to that.

Spencer used our circular saw and cut the piece to 11” long.

I used Minwax Classic Gray and stained the whole block. When it was completely dry, I used my sander and scuffed it up a bit.

I used a multipurpose spray adhesive and sprayed the back of my print and then applied it to my block.

The adhesive will hold the printable on – but I wanted to give it a little more character so I decided to add some bolts. I used the same style that I used for their easy one-hour floating shelf and for their PB Knock-off Emmett Bed – you can find them at Home Depot for $.31 each.

First, I drilled a small hole in the corner of the printable and the wood.

Then I used a socket and added my blot.

I cinched the bolt down just enough to sit flat but not enough to twist or warp the paper.

and then I was done!! and pretty much in love with it.
