I'm still around...

Oh my it has been awhile since I posted new stuff...
{like more than a year... GASP}
And I have new stuff...
Cute new stuff...
and yes I am still doing vinyl...
enough that I haven't gotten around to posting new stuff I guess!

Anyway I will be taking orders for Christmas up until Thanksgiving weekend so let me know if you need anything. :)  Then I'll be back at the 1st of 2012.

O, also we are in the process of finishing our basement and I still have quite a few finished projects that I am trying to get rid of.

It's mainly stuff that I have left over from other years, but I am selling it for...
50% off. :)
email me if you are in the area and willing to come dig through my "torn-up basement" to find some treasures and to cross people off your Christmas list. :)

I am still happy to sell stuff out of my basement up until Christmas Eve - or until it's gone! :) (for those of you who aren't "early" Christmas shoppers.)

Harvest and Winter Blocks...

Time for a couple of new ideas. ;)  Actually I can't take much credit for these HARVEST Blocks because I have seen similar ones around.  But they have been a big hit for individual orders and Church Groups this year.

As a kit... Wood/vinyl/paper is $14.

You provide the paint or stain/brush and mod podge.
The overall measurement is 26" by 8".

I came up with a Chrismas and Winter idea that can also be put on these blocks... in fact one of these sets could be used on the back of the HARVEST blocks for an additional $8 for the paper/vinyl.  Or make a new set for the $14 :)

(I think it is obvious, but these will be put on actual blocks... I just took a picture to show the paper/vinyl combos...  too many projects on my plate today! :))
My schedule is filling up fast, and Christmas is right around the corner.  I will be taking Christmas orders up until November 13th. And then start up again after the 1st of the year.

e-mail me @ to place an order or for any questions.

I'm still alive....

Wow!!  Obviously it has been a long time since I posted here!!  Just letting you know that I am still alive and loving having all my girls home for the summer!! 

Things have picked up of course...  But I sure did love being slower for a while to play with my little angel baby.  I have been back doing vinyl for a few months now, but I will say here that I am not ALWAYS as fast as I used to be.  I tell people a week for their orders to be done (+ shipping time if you aren't close)... and sometimes I am faster... but sometimes I am slower. :) 

Here are some new policies that will hopefully help me in my busy life.

I have decided to start charging a $10 rush fee for those people who need something really fast. (less than 3 days)

Also a $10 minimum order on anything custom.

A $10 setup fee for logos.  If they aren't already in the right format.

And I am not doing any more finished projects for people if they have to be painted... I will put it on metal/tile/glass/plates/etc.  But no more painting!!  I know that sounds funny but I am REALLY burnt out on painting!

For most of you those changes won't affect you...  and if they do... thanks for understanding... :)

My plans was to have lots of new ideas by now...  and I do have some... only they're just in my head...  :)

So mainly I've been doing custom stuff for people that they came up with.  And if I did something for you... I would love, love, love pictures of stuff you have finished.  Then I would have something fun to post... not just blah blah blah!!

One of my greatest projects...

Our family had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did as well!
Our Greatest gift came on December 29th in the form of a 5th little girl for our family...

Lydia Isabelle
7 lbs 4 oz

What a wonderful way to start the new year!!

Could she be any cuter???

Our photographer was FABULOUS!! Check out her blog @ Simply Be Photo or her website . Make sure to mention I sent you. :)

I'll be taking the month off to snuggle with this little one... but will be back taking orders in February again.  Maybe by then I'll come up with something else creative...

Big Blowout Sale!!

Saturday (Nov. 14th) will be my last day for taking custom vinyl orders this year... So if anyone needs anything done before February let me know. :) It's hard for me to say no to people... but then I HAVE to stop sometime to enjoy the Christmas Season with my family and this is NO JOKE I get calls EVERY year on CHRISTMAS EVE from people wanting me to help them with last minute stuff. I will continue to have finished items and some kits available throughout the season though. Just call or e-mail for a time to stop by.

But... this week I am ready to clear some of my finished stuff out... so...

Friday Nov 13th
from 4-8 PM


Saturday Nov 14th
from 1-4 PM

will be a big "blowout" sale @ my house. (e-mail me or leave a comment if you don't know my address.) All finished products will be 20% off... plus I will cover tax those two days. Some things will be marked down even more. I will also have odds and ends of extra vinyl that I already have cut for great prices.

Bring yourself, friends, neighbors, random people off the street, etc. A fantastic way to check lots of names off your Christmas list!!

I have a huge selection of finished items... and with this discount many finished products are cheaper than if ordered in a kit... So don't miss out on this two day only sale!!  (Sorry but custom orders will still be regular price.)

Help me out by spreading the word!

Ideas using the 2010 YW Theme...

It's that time of year when lots of people are looking for ideas for YW Christmas/New Beginnings gifts.  So... I have come up with a few using the "2010 Theme" in different price ranges.  This first one is done on a 6" square block with a metal piece attached.  As a kit it will be $5.50 each (wood, metal, tacks and vinyl included.)  I can always do part of it if you have access to your own wood or metal.

The vinyl on a 4x4 tile would be a little cheaper for you...  The vinyl itself is $1.50 each and you can get your own tiles for about $.50 at Home Depot or Lowe's, ribbon could be added for hanging, or set it on an easel.  Vinyl for a 6x6 tile would be $2.

This is done on a 16" x 2" piece of wood.  As a kit I sell them for $3.50 (wood/vinyl).

I have already done lots similar to this for display in YW's rooms or from Stake leaders to the Wards.  The vinyl is $5 and could be put on metal as shown (Kit price $12) or a 12x12 tile.

I ordered in the new "chalkboard vinyl" I had been hearing about.  A little more expensive than regular vinyl but I am surprised at well it works.  I don't know that I would "cut it"... but maybe someone has a fun idea for that... more in a sheet seems to work better.  It seems better than "chalkboard paint" because it doesn't have ridges from the paint brush.  It wipes off fairly well, and then a wet paper towel helps to clean it up great.  I added a few vinyl sayings for grocery lists, things to do, messages etc.  I must admit I had way more on it... but I cleaned it off for the picture because my list of the things to do was pretty daunting... and I'm trying to pretend like I'm organized. :)  (Oh, and I took it pretty close to the ground... because my little 3 year old LOVES to color on it too.)

We tried some in our daughter's room as well...  she likes playing "school" on it.

I also ordered some of the "iron-on vinyl"... haven't tried it out yet.  But I'm planning on making some cute onesies for my little one coming soon.

Speaking of little ones I had to post a few pictures of Becky's baby boy's room (hope she doesn't mind.)  I had never thought of doing stripes but look how awesome they turned out.  It took some time and a good level to get them all straight... but they were happy with the results.

Another reminder that I am not taking orders after Nov. 14th...  That is less than 3 weeks away so get your orders in quick.  I should be up and going by February again.  Gotta admit... I love doing vinyl but I am looking forward to a break... and a sweet new baby to snuggle!

Advent Calendar...

Thought I would post these cute Advent Calendar ideas. Both are done on 12x12 metal. As a kit they will be $13.50 and finished will be $17. I think they both turned out darling... This past week our family... well mainly ME... (with help on the heavy lifting from my good hubby) have been playing "room switcheroo" in preparation for our new little girl coming in a few months. My 6-year old moved upstairs and I am completely happy with the finished project...

She LOVES the little forest friends around the room!'s now time to finish up my 3-year olds' "swap". Of course my older girls thought about trading straight across for the room above... but decided the larger closets in their rooms couldn't be given up!!
Also... I still have room for one possibly two Enrichments... and don't forget that I will only be taking Christmas orders through Nov. 14th and then start back up again in Feb. :)
