Silhouette Ideas {Encore Post #1}

This was made using a glass from the Dollar Tree and two colors of vinyl to create a great gift item for your favorite person to show a little team spirit.

I added a saying to a plate also from the Dollar Tree to create another great gift. This would make a nice housewarming gift.

This is a plate just like the first one and I decided to create a little more stylized design on this one and I really like the way it turned out. I would have loved to have had better pictures but nighttime doesn't help with that.



I am on a little blogging break so I wanted to share with you a few of  my favorite Silhouette Projects

Hand painted Signs



These signs started out with lettering in pencil and then because I'm doing so many I didn't want to to rub off before they were painted so I used a sharpie marker to go over the lines. 


I then used black craft acrylic paint to fill on each letter. 
The center sign doesn't have slanted letters there is a small dip in the ground. ��

Spring Cleaning


I decided to take a break from flower making and organize my kitchen. I took on drawer that was a catch all for most of our cooking utensils and turn it into a tea, coffee and cocoa center. We drink a lot of coffee and tea in our house so I though that is would be a great place to store it all in one place. ( I do have extra K Cups in the pantry, but all of my tea fit in perfectly).

Here is the Video that inspired me to do this.
I love all of her videos. You might want to watch a few more for some great ideas.
I also organized my countertop with my Keurig and hot water pot. I also have a container of mini marshmellows as well as my French Press Coffee Maker. I have to find a better container for my sugar as this is only temporary. (My nice one got broken). The way this is set up is perfect for fixing breakfast in the mornings. I can use the toaster oven and make coffee in the same area without too much clutter. 
I really should have taken a before picture but it was bad, really, really bad.

Spring Fling and More


These are two hoops that I am going to hang in the pavilion of the festival in a couple of weeks. I used a tutorial from the Spark The Event Online (Spark Your Christmas 2011) to make it and I will be hanging paper lampshades in the centers. 
I am also work on a bunch of these junk bows on a massively larger scale for the event as well. 
I also wanted to share this with you that I found over at www.incourage.me

Target Finds

Yesterday was a great day for Target finds. I scored 4 rolls of pink paper and 4 rolls of polka dot kraft all for $4.00. 

I really love the dollar spot section, and today was no different. I found some pretty twine. It reminds me of spamonie ice cream. 

I will post soon some of the ideas I have for using this as well. It was only $1 a ball.
