I normally save art projects for my art blog, but because Chris and I build these out of wood, I figured they could fit in for a one time post.
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!
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 ).
