My cousin Jackie gave birth a number of months ago, and I was WAY behind on her present (right before her baby shower in January when I was almost finished I broke it, damnit!). I finally finished it a month or two ago, but I had never gotten around to shipping it....I'm just a bad present giver!
My little second cousin's (is that the baby of a cousin?) middle name is King, so I thought putting "King Max" would be pretty cute (and the paper on the red blocks is "king of hearts," hehehe).
Finally finishing my cousin's got me motivated to make another one for my good friend Krislyn's baby (just UNDER a year ago we went to Lake Tahoe for her bachelorette party!) Krislyn is my fellow A's fan, so I thought of COURSE her future son needed an A's themed abacus
(I sell other abacus' in my etsy shop)
I LOVE making these toys. I love the fun colors. I love that they're all wood. I love that they're educational. They're just all around pretty damn awesome (if I do say so myself :) ).
