Going Vinyl Crazy

Over the weekend, I went a little crazy with my Silhouette Cameo.

If you remember, I bought this thing over 6 months ago. And believe it or not, I have not done any vinyl cutting with it until this post - and then again over this weekend. Using vinyl with the Cameo is ADDICTING! I seriously want to vinyl over everything -its so easy and fun.

That is why I vinyled three sides of my fridge this weekend - after this - the Hubby said "Please, stop with the vinyl before you put some on the toilet or the bottom of the sink" (which  by the way - is a GREAT idea! ;-) ).

So I got out my Cameo, vinyl, and transfer tape and went to town doing some simple projects.

On the front of the fridge which I look at too MANY times in the day - I put this quote from an amazing hymn called "Abide in Me" (click here to listen). This helps remind me that Jesus is with me - through cloud and sunshine, tears and smiles, spills and messes, failures and successes.


On the "business" side the fridge (the coupons, menus, phones numbers, groupons, etc. ) I put some vinyl lettering on my shopping list board. It looks so much better than the dry erase marker that always kept coming off.


And finally on the other side I put the words "PRAY". On this side of the fridge I put all the newsletters from our missionaries, friends, and Compassion children we support through prayer. This reminds us each morning at breakfast to pray for them and their ministries. 



Ahh.. It feels so good to vinyl. I can't wait for my next project that will call for vinyl!

What I Have Been Up To

Its been a while since my last post, and I have been busy having a baby!

Sorry for the hiatus, but I am sure all the mom bloggers out there can understand! Now that my little one is two months old (and super cute) - I feel ready to start getting back into some projects around the house.

In case you were wondering, I did hit a nesting phase at the end of pregency. But instead of DIYing stuff, I just wanted to buy new stuff. But fear not, I did some DIY stuff (and I did buy some new stuff).

Here are some projects that I was actually able to finish over the past few months (I'll save the WIP [works in progress] post for another day - its devestating long).

A new shower head that I love!

New Closet Curtains that match the color theme of our room (and I got it for $1.15 a yard!).

Getting the changing table ready & organized.


Figuring out this cloth diapering thing.


Slip-covering (the cheap easy way) an old comfy chair and ottoman


A new rug (and a new baby on it!)

And working on collecting stuff for Little One's owl theme nursery.


Well, thats about it. I have quite a bit WIP as I mentioned before. Hopefully getting them done within the next month.

I am off to take a nap!
