Making Scrabble Cards

S’mae, pawb, I thought I should spend some time updating my blog and trying to synchronise it with my videos. I need to work out how to put my video into my blog as well. I’ve given up my WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday) blogs as Wednesday is too busy a day for me to actually have anything on my desk. I help run our drop-in cafe at church on a Wednesday morning, often have a meeting of some sort directly afterwards, and then I generally need to tidy the lounge in order to have room for our Life Group in the evening.

My video this week shows how I make my Scrabble cards. I have a cousin, a sister-in-law, an aunt, and a friend with special birthdays in March: 3 of them are 50, and 1 is 60. I make them for special birthdays: 40, 50, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 90, & 100. I can do them in English or Welsh. For the Welsh ones, I have to make a couple of letters from blank Scrabble tiles & my Cricut machine (CH, & TH). Thankfully, I have Welsh Scrabble so know how many each letter is worth. I’m trying to use up all my plastic Scrabble tiles and have already started replacing them with wooden ones. At the moment, I only use the wooden ones for cards that I need to post, and the plastic ones mainly for folk at church who will have them handed to them. I use 8″x8″ cards.

These are some using the plastic tiles. I also use 8″x8″ cards for congratulations for passing a driving test. Again, I can do these in English or Welsh. In England you have an ‘L’ plate, in Wales, we have a ‘D’ (for dysgwyr) plate. On one I’ve torn it in half, in the other I’ve cut it. Still can’t decide which I prefer.

Well, I think that’s me for this week. I still can’t work out how to put my video in my blog so, for now, you can click the link at the top of the page that says, “My YouTube Channel”. Hwyl am y tro!
