Toy Labels

With a 3 year old and an 18 month old, I feel like I am eternally picking up toys. And for some crazy reason, I feel the need to have the toys organized. My kids are still learning what toys go where at the end of the day, so I thought I would create these toy labels to help them out.

I had so much fun making these, I think I will add labels to our pantry shelves, then my husband will know where everything goes ;)

I guess all of this organizing helps me to feel like I am on top of the CHAOS.
My friend told me something the other day - which I am going to make into a vinyl decal because it is oh so true. We were talking about being homemaker's and she said " . . . hopelessly trying to organize chaos." SO TRUE :)

Beatles Fan

I am a Beatles fan for sure. When I was in high school my whole room was decked out in Beatles decor. I had a 3D life size cutout that sat in the corner, vinyl records up on the walls, jewelry boxes, watches, you name it - I loved anything Beatles. I am still a fan and that is why I love our Beatles decal.

I had a customer send me this photo today. So cute.
Live on Beatles Fanatics!

Mouse Pads

I just finished painting the back wall of our bedroom a chocolate brown and I LOVE it.
I set my laptop up on my desk after rearranging the room. Everything looked so cute, except for my yahoo mouse pad. I have had this mouse pad for about 6 years now.

I think my husband got it for free when we were in college. So I found the cutest mouse pads on etsy.

I bought one for my laptop and another for my computer. They are so adorable.

I bought the from Mod4 Arts. She has a great selection, and the pads are a great quality.

Vinyl on Canvas

We have had a lot of customers order vinyl to apply to canvas boards. It's a great way to have cute vinyl wall decor, but the ability to be able to move it around if you rearrange the room or take it with you if you move. We finally tested it out for ourselves.

We bought some prestretched canvas, painted it and applied the vinyl. I love the way it turned out. We are having fun playing with the vinyl on different items. Our new/second vinyl shop will feature our sale vinyl items and our vinyl art and craft items, and hopefully soon - our vinyl for laptops.

Birth Announcement

I had fun posting this on my personal blog for friends that I thought I would post it here too.

I love the big flowers. I am sure one day I will look at this picture and wonder why I put that flower on her head, just like we do when we look at those pictures from the eighties with our big bangs and bows in our hair.

We used to sell birth announcements at a local baby boutique when we lived in Idaho. I had a lot of fun designing her announcement that I had the thought of doing that again, until I realized I don't have a minute to spare in my day as it is.

Spring Shop Banner

We have our new Spring Banner for our shop designed.

I don't know why but I just love these little mushrooms.

Vinyl Boards - Family Monogram

I cut the vinyl for my sister-in-law to make this board for my parents for Christmas. We all got together this weekend, so I was able to see the finished product.

She did a really good job, it was so cute.

Comment to Make my Day

I was working late tonight and a shopper left me this comment:

"just came across your products and have fallen absolutely in love
i dont have the funds to purchase anything just yet, but will keep you in mind until then.
please continue your business until my family moves and we can start buying decorations!
thank you so much for your beautiful art!"

Thank you! It is so nice to receive these little bits of motivation when frustrating days come.

I have been super swamped with setting up wholesale for the business, that this helped me continue to drudge through the not so fun aspects of the business that take up so much time.

I do love creating and designing though, and that makes it all worth it.

After getting my daughter ready yesterday for our play date and putting on her polka dot tights, I realized those cute little polka dots made me so cheery.

So my inspiration for today is polka dots.


Polka dots are always fun

always cheery

always cute

never dreary

never sad

always glad

Kitchen Towels and Vinyl Gift

For Christmas for my sister in laws I did up a package of kitchen towels and a vinyl kitchen phrase.
The towels I embellished with bright pink and green circles.

And enclosed our eat well . . . vinyl decal.

Then I rolled up the vinyl inside the towel and finished with a ribbon.

New Year - New Blog

Well I guess it's about time I get going with my goals for the new year.
I want to try and blog daily from now on - Well at least Monday thru Friday.
My goal is to blog about new designs we have, new products, fun crafts that you can do with vinyl, and print your own stationery, decorating ideas, customer photos, and of course MORE giveaways!

This first post is my new paint job in my great room. Check back for the follow up picture later this week. We are going to be adding a dashed harlequin pattern in a copper metallic vinyl to the walls. I can't wait! The paint color is not the color I expected, but that is too long of a story to tell now. So here is the partial transformation of our room so far:
