Don't You Just LOVE The Wood Connection!?!

When I realized we would be in Salt Lake City on Saturday there was one amazing place I just had to go...The Wood Connection!!!  I LOVE that place!  Beyond having the cutest woodcrafts I have ever seen, they are totally fine with you taking pictures!!!  I thought I would share with you some that I saw just in case you can't get there yourself. 

These darling seasonal shapes are cut out of 2" pine.  Many of them are decorated with glitter.  Apparently, they paint the shape, then sprinkle glitter while the paint is still wet.  So ADORABLE!!!
They sell the frame-like shelves to put them on.

There is also a whole line of dangle shapes.  Same shapes, different way to display them.
How cute are these.  In a more organized life, I would have loved this idea.  One for every season/holiday.  Same nail in the wall, just pull down one frame and put up the next.
Remember my whole blurb about misunderstanding my mother-in-law's description of the "HOME" sign.  This is the craft she was describing.  The shapes are sold in packs of 4 or 5 for about $12 each package.  Add in your letters and all 4 shape packs, this craft comes in around $55-$60.  That is a lot all at once, but if you can pick up one set of shapes every couple of months, totally do-able, right?  I still can't figure out how I got the other from the description of this :0)
Speaking of the cute letters, how cute is this!?!  I love the school set!  That cowboy set behind it is just as darling.
This seems to be the next trend.  2x6 blocks with paper modge podged on it, then vinyl letters.  Now, my mother-in-law had told me to use clear-drying wood glue to mount paper to the wood.  I looked at her like she was crazy and continued to pick up my favorite jar in the whole wide world, modge podge.  Apparently though, if you use clear-drying wood glue (not the yellow kind) your papers and photos will not wrinkle!!!  How amazing is that!?!  I haven't tried it yet, but you can be sure you will be hearing about the outcome very soon.
I absolutely LOVE their use of bead board on their crafts.  They have a mdf bead board.  I don't know where you would get it, but I LOVE IT!!!
I want this!  They sell all the frames and metal boards you could possibly imagine.  I think their prices are VERY reasonable!  They also have a full line of plaques and metal with sayings cut out of them.  I really am terrible at describing this place.  If you ever find yourself in Salt Lake City, check them out.

There really was no way, being the devoted Twi-lover that I am, that I could end without showing you the lovely line of Twilight projects available!!!
Could not resist.

Now, I have even more pictures, mostly Halloween and Christmas, but will have to save those for another day.  I am still trying to find the carpet in this house of mine.  I babysat all day yesterday, the day after we got back from our 12hr drive.  What I would really love is a nap.  The carpet will still be there tomorrow, right?  Somewhere down there :0)  If you would like to see more of The Wood Connection, you can check out their website.  All of the crafts you see here, or on their site are SHIPPABLE!!!
