Have you ever found yourself in a meeting or on an extremely long conference call that seemed as if it would last for days? It’s so dry and boring that you find yourself gazing
over into the corner of the room, your eyes fixated on a piece of lint and you start to zone out.
Well like many bloggers..DIYers I have a 9 to 5. And sometimes I find myself daydreaming….about wood (yes wood, don’t judge me), woodworking and other DIY projects I could do around the house. Well one day I was in one of those meetings when I started doodling on a sticky note. I wasn’t really paying attention to what I was drawing. It was kind of my pen moving and my eyes fixated on a piece of lint in the corner. So then the meeting ends, I get back to my desk and I look down at my notes.
Huh. It looked like alphabet blocks. Made sense given at the time it felt like I was dreaming alphabet blocks. Also at the time I was trying to decide what to make for a good friend who is having a little girl. With all of my friends having babies I was running out of ideas for interesting gifts. I had made baby blanket ladders, alphabet wooden blocks and artwork for a nursery. Then it hit me. Why not make a play table inspired by alphabet blocks. So I went back home, made a few more sketches and I must say…I don’t always pat myself on the back, but I was very proud of the outcome of this project.
Ok people…you know the deal…Let’s Get Dirty!
