Here are some scrabble nameplates I made for everyone at my old job (the city animal shelter) and now for the shipping company where I currently work...I even made one for the head boss (though a photo hasn't been posted yet) and he said it was the best present he ever got from an employee.

I made them for the shelter when i left back in sepember as a going away gift. i made some for my department for christmas. the rest of the department got them afterwards.

These are really cute!  I love how you incorperated  (what I'm guessing) is everyones personality in them.

Thanks! I sent out a little questionnaire asking likes and favorites and hobbies and such. One guy (Randall) said he collected dust, so he got a little bottle of dust!  Cheesy
I wanted to be sure it matched each person and I think I did well. All the baubles came from my collection of stuff!

Those are adorable, and you made so many! I kept scrolling down expecting to hit the end, but it kept going.  Cheesy It was really thoughtful of you to make them so personalized. I can't imagine how big your trinket collection is to have all those things on hand. Did you have all the Scrabble letters/holders on hand too?

I LOVE this idea! It's a great way to use up all those little bits and pieces, and to use creative charms. Very clever!

Very cute! I may just have to "borrow" your idea and make some for my desk and the people I work with!

I did have plenty of scrabble letters. I buy them secondhand when i go out since they're no more than $2-3 each game. I did have to buy some stands off of evilBay, but since I got 75 for $18 shipped, it made me happy!

I'd be flattered if you "borrowed" my idea, just remember to post photos! And if anyone needs stands, I'll swap...I've got plenty!

wow that is so thoughtful of you, and I'll bet a lot of work! I enjoyed looking at all the little charms and trying to determine what they could mean about each person.
