vanna, may i please have a consonant?

i'm a real sucker for anything that has a clever use of letterforms. so when i spied this box of swedish happiness during a recent trip to ikea, i instantly had visions of using them to leave little notes for my little dutch sweetie on the kitchen counter, or playing cookie scrabble.....


but my abecedarian dreams were shattered when i opened the box, and discovered that it was filled with only the letters i, k, e, and a. three vowels and one consonant? this was a challenge that would send any wheel-of-fortune veteran straight into an alphabetical tailspin!


so, since there was no letter b in the box, i decided to create one for myself.....
in the form of a plan b.....
and just dunked them in a bowl of c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e.

i just love finding new ways to use letterforms!

it could be like one of those puzzles where you have to see how many words you can make out of the letters in a certain word.
...or, you could start nicknaming your dutch boy 'ike'... that would use a few of the letters. lol :-)
