That's MY cup!

My husband drinks Pepsi... I do NOT! 
 It's always an awful shock when I pick up what I think is my cup, take a sip, then realize it wasn't mine!  Here's our solution:

Now we always know which cup has tea, which has chocolate milk, &
which has Pepsi (or some other soda I don't want to taste!).

Set of 4 personalized cups - $5

(**NOTE:  These cups CAN NOT go in the dishwasher. 
They must be washed by hand, in warm soapy water.)

Summer fever

I think I've caught the fever!  It happens every year around this time... after a trip or two to the beach, I can barely make it through the day without dreaming of the sand, the sun, the sounds of the waves (somehow I'm able to block out the thought of the occasionally screaming child that is often attached to my leg & the loud people outside my window at 11pm).
This cute sign takes me to the beach, where you ALWAYS have at least a little sand in your flip flops at all times!
Sign is 12 x 4.


Finished 2 mailboxes this past weekend.  I think they turned out great!  Here's pictures of them before they were mounted on their posts.  I'll try to get new pictures of them soon.

Mailboxes - $25 if I purchase the mailbox, $10 if you supply your own

Special Order flower pot

What a sweet idea!  This flower pot was a special order for a new grandma.

Up & cutting with my Cricut!

So excited to finally be getting some things done with the Cricut!  Put this cute little saying up on Luke's door - totally perfect!  I have a ton of great sayings for your kids, babies, different rooms in your house. 
Obviously prices for the vinyl quotes will vary.  Once you figure out what you want it to say & how big you want it, I can figure out a price.  Something about this size would cost $15.

Not just for the kiddies...

So the initial plaques can be for us big kids too!  With a more "mature" background this little plaque can be hung somewhere besides in the kids rooms!  Just let me know what colors you'd like & I can work something out for you!

Coming soon....

Lots of new stuff to come soon... just got my new Cricut!!!!  So excited to start cutting some vinyl!  Check back soon to see what I'm cutting! :)

Tweet Tweet! Some new birdhouses!

Two new birdhouses

One - super girly!  Fun colors for fun birds :)

The second - for the more "crabby" feathered friends :)  Weathered beach look.

What's your letter?

Super cute hanging initial.  For a boy or girl!  Approximately 12 inches in height.  Any color!


A little less girly...

 Suprisingly almost everything I've done has been a little on the girly side... kinda odd since I have a BOY!  Today I worked on two "boy" items.  You've seen both of these before, but I put a less polka dot-y, less pink spin on them.  Here's a personalized name sign I did for a little boy named Richie.  I think it turned out pretty cute!

I also worked on a more "guyish" initial plaque.  So cute with the beachy car background!  Of course, cars aren't the only thing boys love... we could use robots or just a pattern that's not so "fru-fru."

Another birdhouse!

Growing up, my family ALWAYS pulled for Carolina. We were die hard Heels fans... after all, my dad is a graduate of UNC. Then it happened. I got accepted to & attend State. (GASP!) The world as we knew it changed!We were a house divided! If there was a Carolina game on, we rooted for the Heels. If there was a State game on, we pulled for the Pack. But what happened when State played Carolina????
It was total chaos! You had to cheer when UNC did something well AND cheer when NCSU did something well (which, let's admit it, sadly isn't often).
The only benefit, you were never upset by the outcome of the game. "Our" team (be it State or Carolina) always won when they played each other :)
So, now it's not just our house that's divided... the birds have joined the chaos too!

This is just how our house split. How did yours divide???

Birdhouses $15

Inital Wall Plaque

Adorable wall plaque! This one was done for a little girl, background is fun & cutesy. Could be altered to cater to little boys or even older, more mature (aka the age where they're talking or texting all the time) girl (or boy). Could also use a more sophisticated background/color combination for your living room/kitchen/etc & put the initial of your last name on. Endless possibilities!
As always, different colors/patterns/ribbons are available!

Initial plaque  $8

Your outdoor feathered friends need a hip hangout! Help them relax with this Sweet Re-Tweet!

Can be mounted on a post or can include hanging rope.

Birdhouses $15.00
