Wordle Hot Chocolate Gift by How Does She. Sentimental gifts are always the best, right?! One of my most treasured gifts was a simple board with words on it. Yep words. My dear friend Alison made 'subway art' with words that reminded her of me. It melts my heart every time I look at it. When thinking about gifts for my neighbors, I wanted it to be something sentimental, easy, and inexpensive.

My family and I sat down and made a list of words that described a family in our neighborhood. If you've never used Wordle before, you simply plug in words, and it creates a word collage. We wrapped the 'family word art' around a can of hot chocolate. We then wrapped the 'individual word art' around a Styrofoam cup for each member of the family. We attached a little note to the can of hot-cocoa that said...

I like to imagine the family gathering around, having a cup of hot cocoa, and discussing all the sweet words that describe them. I hope it makes them smile. Thank you for the opportunity to be on the fabulous U-create today! Rubik's cube chest of drawers. Unsurprisingly, there are lots of bits of furniture around that are based on the Rubik's cube; coffee tables are particularly popular, and for 980€ (!!) , you can even buy a Rubik's cube locker. I wanted to do something different, and use lazy Susan bearings to achieve at least one axis of rotation - they're cheap, really strong, and add a wacky dimension to a chest of drawers. The design is simply three boxes, each containing a single drawer.

Their construction is basic - they're made of 1/4" and 1/2" plywood (which you should get precut at the lumber yard into two 2'x8' sheets), and assembled using a brad nailer and wood glue. I was going to simply glue the "stickers" on to decorate the outside - or even just paint them on - but the future owner insisted he had to be able to scramble and "solve" the cube, so I enabled this with the help of rare-earth magnets for holding power and short dowels for positioning.
