Wisemen Still Seek Him

One year my mom and I created these in mass to give as gifts!  They are fairly inexensive and so fun.  This Wisemen Still Seek Him board is displayed in my home every year!  See my full post HERE.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland decor

I love the gold and silver vinyl used on this pretty Walking in a Winter Wonderland board!  It is elegant and simple and would make the perfect decoration or gift!  See my full post HERE.

This O Come Let Us Adore Him plaque is truly one of my favorite vinyl decorations of all time.  It is simple and elegant and is a great Christmas decoration.  See how to create this HERE.
Mason Jar Gift

I love using my Silhouette to create vinyl stencils!  It makes such a fun way to paint fabric (without needing to know how to paint well!) and is a great way to embellish any gift!  Learn  how to use the Silhouette to stencil HERE.

DIY Christmas Shirt

Last year my husband and I were invited to an Ugly Sweater Party and we didn’t want to spend a lot of money or time searching for an ugly sweater to wear.  Instead I made my husband a silly shirt that he was much more willing to wear and all thought it was pretty funny!  Learn more HERE.

Upcycled Holiday Tin

Upcycle an ugly tin with a bit of paint and some pretty vinyl!  You can fill this with any treat or cookie of your choice and gift away!  See how to create this HERE.

Holiday Glass Blocks

One of my most popular Christmas post is this Christmas Glass Block idea!  I share how to drill holes into the glass blocks and apply the vinyl onto them.  We truly love getting these out every year!  See more HERE.

Creating a personalized tumbler filled with yummy goodies or a small gift is a great, fun and simple gift to give any time of year!  See how to create this fun layered vinyl look HERE.

    Since it is Christmas and even though I don’t have one, I would give it to my friend I class sis (short for sister). She knows me inside out, loves my son as her’s loves my puppy as hers and something bad happens she is there for me, don’t pick on my son or if my puppy gets sick, she cries. Her husband was hurt at work and feel over a cord and can’t use his hand, and a year later they let him go. My friend is disabled and they live on a fixed income. She has a heart of gold and always helps others. I would give it to her for Christmas.

    I have one of the world’s ugliest laundry rooms. The depressing level in there is off the charts. I have a couple of ideas for some canvases to make it slightly less depressing. The Silhouette would make that oh so much easier!

    I have been wanting one of these for SOOOO long! I have so many ideas I could do and want to do! I could get so many of my ideas done with this machine!
