Name hanging? I really dunno what to call it but I LOVE it!!!
One of my clients (I clean houses) is moving to Denver, which makes me sad I really love them so I decided to make them a little something. I really love my creation it kinda just came to me!
I also made them a folder titled Tips from your favorite cleaning lady Smiley
Just something fun because they need organization tips, they had me do a lot of organizing for them and loved what I did so I though I'd give them some tips to help out Smiley

Anyways I'm rambling...
It's a scrabble tile rack that is mod podged with scrapbook papers. I drilled holes and used screw eyes and split rings to attach everything. The letters are scrabble tiles that I painted (they are meant to have a bit of an unfinished look but you can't really tell in the pics). There are heavy duty magnets attached to the back and rings attached to the top. So you can either hang it, set in on a ledge, or put it on the fridge. On the rack is their last name and hanging from that are the names of the family hanging vertically. (Josh, Mary, Calli, Brett, Nina, Elvis and Molly - the last two are their pets).

K finally the pics!

I totally love how my idea in my head came to life and how it turned out!!!
I can't wait to give it to them I hope they love it too!

Pics are gone, sorry!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

ROCKED IT!!!  This is sooooooo creative and unique and they are going to love it!  I predict that this will be the BEST going-away gifty they get and will ever get!

I can't imagine how touched they're going to feel that you put so much thought, creativity, love and work into this and it is only for them!

*sigh*  I want to steal this idea, but I don't know anyone to give it to.  Smiley  Yer awesome girl.

Oh thank you so much!! I can barely wait until tomorrow to give it to them!
I thought about making one for my husband and I but I think it would look a bit silly with just two names Smiley

That is SO clever!

I was kind of bummed because I think that would be cute for some people I know - but nobody I know uses the same last name as their SIGOT.  But, it occurs to me it could say "Welcome" or some such thing at the top instead of a last name.

Oh goody, one more thing to add to my list of crafts to do "some day".  (Boy that "some day" is going to be a very busy time.)

(And I agree about loving most anything made with Scrabble tiles)

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

I think Welcome would work wonderfully!

This is really cool.  This looks like a hip and cool craft that would be on HGTV's Creative Juice.  I used to clean houses.  I cleaned two a day, five days a week.  I fell in love with a few of my families, too.  It is hard work, my back can testify to that. But the reward of helping people get clean and organized is a great feeling.

I like your name hanging and I'm sure you will get lots of hugs and maybe a few tears, because they will LOVE IT!  I'm sure they are going to miss you, too.
