“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

When you have a child with 11 letters in their name... it is very expensive to purchase individual letters as magnets... or wooden trains... or tiles... or wall plaques... or beads. Everything time$ 11!

So, when I saw these do-it-yourself magnets in a Family Fun Magazine... I thought... that looks easy... I could do that! Well, I purchased the materials about 2 years ago... and finally, when my Sissy visited this January, on a snowy day... we pulled out some magazines and started cutting.

I decorated an Altoids tin and gave it to him for Valentine's Day. He was so excited to have something with his 11 letters on it.

It really is the small things, isn't it?

This looks like such fun! I wonder if I could do it! I thought of different ways a teacher could use these too in the classroom.

Speeaking of names, when I was little I could never find my name on personalized stuff and if I ever did I was so excited!
