Today I'm blogging about one of my new favorite creative places to visit, browse, and spend money at. The place is called The Wood Connection and it's a store filled with holiday projects of every kind along with all the supplies you need to make the many projects in their showroom. You will also find wooden frames of all sizes, plaques, blocks, ribbons, paints, tools, cut vinyl letters, sayings and also a variety of wooden letters. The hardest part is picking out just ONE project.

I recently finished making this set of MONSTER letters that I'm using for my Halloween decorating this year. I think my grandkids will really like them. I still have to purchase the three little monsters and I thought it would be fun to put their names on each of the three stands. 

Go HERE to see the 3 little wooden monsters I have yet to make.

Click HERE to see a few more of their Halloween Projects.

What I love most about their projects is that it takes a minimal amount of painting and all of the designs on each of the letters is done using scrapbook paper and then adding trim like ribbon, ric rac, buttons, and fur, just to name a few. On this project I also used heat set jewels on the letter T. You should be able to click on each of the pictures to get a closer look.

Right now The Wood Connection is only located in Utah but when I talked with the ladies at the store they were hoping to be able to ship items in the not too distant future. So, next time you find yourself in UTAH make sure to visit one of their three locations and give yourself at least an hour to browse and take it all in.

The Wood Connection is located at:

6680 South 300 West
Murray, UT 84107

530 East State Street
American Fork, UT

Furniture Store
372 West Winchester Street

They are adorable. I love them. I just a little too far for their shop (NC) but may be able to find something similar locally. Thanks for the idea.

As I laid in the hospital bed I started thinking that I had a show to do. I was hoping the Doctor would put me together so I could do the show.
