The Laundry Room...loads of fun - vinyl wall saying

My sister-in-law, who happens to also be named Natalie :) has this saying in her laundry room and I liked it so much I re-created it. I used plantin schoolbook and jasmine cartridges.

Speak kind words, reveive kind echoes...newest vinyl wall saying

My sweet friend, Kristen, told me this thought months ago and it has helped me so much in my life. I finally got it up on the wall. Thanks Kristen.

Font used: Scriptina

I added this last picture..because it included a "blue-bird". Many of my friends know what this signifies..."wishing you all bluebirds everyday."

Note: If you want to know the story...let me know. :)

Teacher appreciation gifts using homemade JAM

Here are some simple "Thank you" gifts for teachers. I made strawberry jam and then I just used flowers, buttons and ribbon to decorate the lid of the jam. I cut out a flower tag on my cricut...I believe it was the Georges Cartridge. Then I wrote, "Thank you for being so Berry Sweet to me." And then had my daughter sign her name on the other side. The teachers LOVED it. My daughter had 4 pre-school, I just did it for all of them. I say it was easy because the freezer jam was already made. I always make some smaller jars of jam .. to give away.

And then inked the edges and added ribbon. They were really FUN!!!

Customized Lil coupe Car

I was so excited to do this for our baby girl. All she wanted for her 2nd birthday was a car. I wanted to make it look different because there are a few of the same cars in our circle. Little Tikes is doing their 30 year anniversary and so this car came with eyeballs ... too cute. So, here is her custom FLOWER POWER Princess Car! I also added blue eyes and eyelashes!! TOO FUN!

My sister and I put it on the banner ... it was so much fun and I think it turned out great. Thanks Shari again for your late night help and for finding the image for the dancing couple.

Wedding Sign-in book

These last few weeks have been so busy...but, so much fun. I created a wedding sign-in book for my neice, but forgot to take pictures. It turned out great. Her colors were plum, sage green and black and silver. My brother was getting married a week after her and so I thought it would be fun to create one for them. Their colors were coral and peach. I had it at the luncheon and everyone was able to sign it. You can just click on the picture to see it larger. Special thanks to my sister Shari that stayed up with me to help me create and adhere!!! :)

And a HUGE thanks to my husband, Wade ...who took the great pictures and printed them out for me. :) Love you !
