What to do with these blocks?

Making these blocks is fun and relaxing. Now for the real party--letting them talk and tell you where they want to live. I tried to put them in Hawaii, but they said, "Ho-hum."


They insisted on warmth, but not tropical. More like summer in the Northwest. "But we don't want to be so square."



They like their little hats. "Hee, hee, we look like houses!" they say. "But we don't like to be crowded. How about a street?"


"Oh, that's fun. Look at all those beach balls. Let's be beach houses!"



"Now we need a garden. Pansies will do quite nicely, thank you."

Can you imagine yourself copying and following patterns? I´m so glad you don´t! Guess you´ve taken double dose of creativity before landing! Enjoy it! The only way to thank Him for a gift is using it fully.
