So a couple of weeks ago, I was out shopping with Elisabeth at Hobby Lobby for a Valentine’s Day wreath she had in mind. I didn’t need anything,` was just browsing. We were looking at ribbons, and I saw this anchor ribbon, that I knew I absolutely needed, and I needed to make a wreath out of it! Sometimes inspiration hits just that quick! I happened to find the wooden anchor at Hobby Lobby too, and of course they had the wire form wreaths too.
My sister in law and her husband built a home out in the country in Paradise… no, that’s what their town is called… Paradise. We went to see their new house last night and it is gorgeous… lots of land, trees, and a brand new custom home. I surprised her with a house warming gift – a Home Depot bucket filled with all kinds of new home goodies.
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.
