What You’ll Need:

201606_92882_0002_800 x 800

  • Twenty 12″ x 50″ pieces of plywood
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pencil
  • Saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Sanding Tool
  • 2″ Black number stickers (2 zeroes, 70 ones, 7 twos, 8 threes, 10 fours, 1 five, 2 eights)
  • Scissors
  • 8″ stencils of letters A-Z
  • Black 3-D Fabric Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrush

Step One: Measure for Measure

Measure 12″ x 10″ rectangles and mark using a pencil and a straightedge.

Step Two: I Came, I ‘Sawed’, I Conquered

Saw with downward, diagonal cuts along your penciled line. Sand the edges of your 100 successfully cut tiles for smooth and safe handling. (Don’t have a saw handy? Opt for cardstock and scissors instead!)

Step Three: Get Your Fill

If needed, cut your black number stickers out and place them in the lower right-hand corner of each rectangle. For a guide on how many points each letter is worth, click here! Next, trace the outline of your letter stencils with 3-D fabric paint. This will provide a foolproof raised border for easy painting!

Once your fabric paint has dried, fill in the entirety of each letter with black acrylic paint.

Step Four: ‘Letter’ Rip!

And, there you have it. The process is lengthy, the materials are many, but the results are oh-so worth it. Tactfully arranging your life-sized Scrabble tiles across the yard not only gives your brain a workout, but it gets your heart pumping, as well! (Seriously. I was panting through my smile by my third turn.)

Good luck, and game on!

    The Chinese tech company will launch its latest smartphone, the Mate 30, in Munich on Thursday. It is Huawei’s first smartphone series to hit the market since being put on a trade blacklist by the United States back in May, cutting off its new products from access to Google apps and services.

  10. 09/19/2019 at 2:16 am #

    The Mate 30 phones will come with Google’s open source Android operating system, but won’t have access to the Google Play Store or apps like YouTube, Gmail and Google Maps. Third party apps like ride-hailing platforms and food delivery services that rely on Google Maps would also no longer function without access to Google services.

    Smartphones and other consumer products made up nearly half of Huawei’s revenue last year. But without access to popular apps, those phones become a lot less attractive to international customers.

    Europe in particular was a market where Huawei had been successfully selling high-end phones, such as the Mate and P series. The company shipped 26.3 million smartphones in Western Europe in 2018, up more than 60% from the previous year, according to market research firm IHS Markit.

    While the Mate 30 “will help Huawei compete in China — still the largest smartphone market in the world — the firm will struggle outside of China … due to the lack of the Google Play Store,” said Thomas Husson an analyst with research firm Forrester. Huawei’s business in Europe is particularly vulnerable, he added.

    Huawei unveiled its own operating system, called Harmony OS, last month. But the company said it is not using Harmony in smartphones for now, only in smart TVs and other connected devices.
