Heritage Blocks

I had to show off my contribution for our family reunion this month. As I was blog surfing one day, I found this post on Someday Crafts. I knew it was what I had to do for our raffle for a family reunion this month. These are Heritage blocks. All you do is make copies of pictures and modge-podge them onto blocks of wood. Then they become strong enough to with stand kids and other things. Here are mine for our Fisher/Parker family reunion (my maternal grandmother's side):
The back of each one has information about the people in the picture. Here is a tidbit of history. My great-great grandpa Fisher was a Pony Express rider. My grandma found a magazine with an advertisement for riders in it and I put it on the back. On the Parker line, there was an outlaw from Utah. I know, cool name!!! It turned out so cute! I have a passion for doing family history work and I love things like this.
