The Wooden Alphabet Block Set

I have been working on this new design for weeks it seems. I'm so happy to finally introduce it. As a mother of two very inquisitive girls, I know how much these blocks will be loved for years to come. I actually made this set for Baby Boy Gleason (coming in October) as decor for his room until he's old enough to enjoy learning the letters, numbers and pictures. The carrying case is an extra touch that adds so much to any decor and is useful at the same time! I think it will look precious on his dresser. When displayed in the case they can be piled in (as shown) or they also stack neatly and fit perfectly nice and snug.

The Wooden Alphabet Block Set comes with 26 blocks (1.5" Blocks). The custom-made carrying case measures 8.5" x 3.5" and has rope handles. For a girl set, some ribbon would look so sweet. They can be personalized as far as color and style. These have uppercase/lowercase letters on two sides of the block, number and detailed picture on the others. The top and bottom side are left for further personalization if that is desired. These were left blank on those sides. Careful attention was given to the detail of each individual block. They are sealed to last for years of play.

These make great learning tools as well as providing original decor and keepsake for all time!

Price is $95, which includes 26 blocks + custom-made carrying case.

**These blocks are sealed with a non-toxic sealant but I do not recommend for teething babies, unless supervised. They should be used as decor until the child is old enough to keep blocks out of their mouth.**


Here's how it started:

Family Name Blocks {The Sartells}




This is another idea for a custom design on the Family Name Blocks. Instead of the photos, they chose to use this verse and Fleur de Lis. I love how they turned out.

Boutique Letter Blocks {Kalia}






I love the colors that were used in these blocks. These were custom-made to match an invitation/birthday party decor for a sweet gal in Pennsylvania. I'm in love with this name, too. The meaning of "Kalia" is "flower wreath"? Flowers were a big inspiration for these blocks.

**My hubby finally asked me today why I make/send two cards. :) I thought some of you may wonder the same thing. When someone places an order as a gift, I send them a "Thank You for the order card" and I include a matching card to accompany their gift.

Family Name Blocks {with photo blocks}





This was a custom order for a sweet gal in California...a gift for her sister. These have suddenly become a popular item from The Chica Boutique. :) I have two more custom orders in the works right now.

They are beautiful to display on a shelf and are quality made to be passed down as a keepsake. Photo Blocks and Name Block measure 1 1/2" thick. Length of blocks will vary according to name.

They make wonderful anniversary gifts and wedding gifts. The set I'm currently working on will be given as a hostess gift! :)

Each set is $40. Price of shipping may vary. Contact me with design requests. ;)
