Home Sweet Home Vinyl Window Sign

I am so excited to show off my new toy, the Silhouette Cameo. My family chipped in together to give it to me for Christmas. This machine is AMAZING. They found it on the Silhouette website on Black Friday and the bundle came with a starter tool kit, 1 month of free designs, the vinyl starter kit and Silhouette Mint (that post is coming!). I found the sketch pens at Hobby Lobby and bought them with my 40% off coupon but am excited to learn how to use other pen brands (such as Sharpie) with the different pen holders I also found.

My first craft was a vinyl Home Sweet Home sign for the antique window displayed in my living room. I can’t wait to show you how I did it with some simple beginner step by steps for your first Cameo cut.

Letterpress Drawer as Trinket Shelf

Have you seen those large letterpress drawers at antique stores? They are fairly inexpensive… I see them pretty consistently from $20-$30. Elisabeth and her family showed me how to use them as a trinket shelf in your home and I’ve shared this unique idea with my own family. Here are several pictures of letterpress drawers used as little trinket shelves.

Old/Antique Window turned Bathroom Sign

I am so excited to show you my antique window sign. I found an old antique window at an antique store for $10.00. I had never seen one so small before and I liked the look the black paint around the inside edges gave it. It kind of looks like smoke damage. I think it adds to the character of it. Antique/old windows are EVERYWHERE right now and are the hot home decor piece to have. They will be easy to find if you decide you want one, too.

Bucket List and Retirement Party

I am a teacher at a local school. My team and I hosted a retirement party in honor of one of our team members, Karen, who will be leaving after 32 years. We are so sad to see her go but were excited to throw a celebration in her honor. We put our minds together and quickly had the perfect theme and layout planned. These table settings and decor ideas would go great with really any party, baby shower or get together.
