I forgot to share the glasses I made for girls/guys night! Silly me! I made the wine glasses for us to use and we all gave our guys a personalized beer mug for their night!

Been A While

Yep, I have neglected my blog...but that doesn't mean I have neglected my machine! :-) I ended up breaking down and getting a baby bug for Girl's Night, because I get too impatient waiting for one machine to finish.  It's been a crazy busy weekend and I am really too pooped to type anything clever, but I wanted to show-off some of the things I did with the girls!  The candy bouquet isn't anything with the Bug but I am pretty proud of it anyways!

New Wall Quotes!

While waiting for my ordered vinyl to make it on my front porch, I played around with more contact paper today.  Please excuse the quality of the pictures! While I have an amazing camera with excellent photo quality-these came from my phone.

As many of you know, I am also a photographer.  When we got married, my hubby and I started our first collection...picture frames from our travels.  I treasure photographs more than a person should, and figured a quote of the obvious seemed fitting for the wall we hang our frames on.  "Because pictures have a story to tell" speaks to my heart!  The stories of our travels will forever live!

Our laundry room has become the place my hubby literally drops his pants each night (mainly because I got tired of them being dropped on the bathroom floor).  I have seen a few different sayings for laundry rooms, but since mine is more of a hole in the wall, I figured the door would be the perfect place to put this quote. 

Hubby wanted a fish for his truck.  Unfortunately, my vinyl didn't arrive today like it was supposed to, so I couldn't make the big logo he wanted.  I always like to try out new designs small before I make a big now he has a small bone fish logo for his work-horse truck too! He is pretty excited about it, and anything I can do to help keep him a happy hubby is a good thing!

Monogram Plate

One of my very best friends got engaged last night and I was asked to be a part of the proposal by taking pictures (see the photo blog in a few days to see pictures!).  There was no way I could be a part of such an awesome proposal and not bring a gift! I etched a plate with their names and future monogram initial! Shortly after she opened it, other friends were telling me they expect one when they get hitched :-)

This is still with the vinyl on it...its sometimes hard to see the full detail on etched glass through a picture, so I will start showing both versions!

50th Anniversary

I was asked to design a 50th Wedding Anniversary for a friend to give as a gift.  I am pretty pleased with the result, as well as the packaging.

Projects for Coworkers

At the present time, my coworkers are feeding my addiction to my machine and vinyl! :-) With my recommendations, the local Dollar Tree is the place to get things to vinyl.  The pink & blue baskets are from there, as well as the sanitizer! Yay saving money!
