Wall Words

This blank wall above our basement steps has been staring at me for a couple of years.  I decided to take care of it today.  The file is from  my vinyl designer  I had to sit on a half wall and lean over the stairs while I applied this-not fun!!!! lol

Birthday Card

I made this "spring" card for a friend.  It lays flat in the envelope and then "springs up" when you take it out.

Let it Snow Mirror

It was time to take the Valentine's message off the mirror.  I debated between this saying and a spring theme.  I chose this seeing as it is only February and around here that means more winter to come, even though it had been 40's and 50's the last few days.  Woke up this morning to cold, windy and snowy...........

just a note-this is clear contact paper, not glass etch vinyl.  It removes much easier than the vinyl :0)

fonts used-inspiration and arial

Craft Room Update

My hubby and son worked on my craft room all day Saturday.  I have new counter tops, some cabinets (whats left of our old kitchen cabinets-some were already used in the laundry room)and all new electrical outlets and switches.  We still need to add some shelving, but I am loving it!!!!  I have everything in one place now-my cricut, my laptop, and printer.  I cannot believe this is all mine :0)

We will put open shelving between the upper cabinets

desk area-laptop and printer. I want to add shelves for paper on the wall

work table.  still deciding if I want to raise this to counter top height.  It is made up of jetmax cubes and an old door

This is a file I made for valentine's day last year.  I added a larger version to the file, so now there are 2 sizes.  This one measures 5" long by 4" high by 2 1/2" wide  
I have a video from last year here showing how to put it together.  The file download link is at the bottom of this post.

This is the mailbox I made last year.
