working with vinyl

So I've decided that with the coming new year that I should blog what I am doing more. Maybe no one really cares but I think it's a lot of fun to go back and see what I've been working on and with what products I've used. Also, maybe I'll work on some of my stuff a little more and not be so, ummmm.... lazy. It's kind of shameful how few posts I have done in the last couple of years. That's ok though.

For Christmas time this year I had all these grand plans of making pillows for my couch and for gifts and a Christmas lap quilt and some sewy gifts, blah blah blah....then I got sick, and when I say sick I mean really sick. I can't even remember the last time I was so ill. My voice was completly gone. I could not sleep for a week and the coughing was so bad. I got lazy, and I mean real lazy so nothing got done. When I started feeling better I decided I wanted to do some of the stuff that I had planned so I axed the pillow ideas because I just did not feel like sitting down and sewing and chose to work with my silhouette sd. I love this machine. Who knew one could love a machine so much. It does so many cool things, the customer service is awesome...even calling me to help me figure out how to open my software on my new Macbook Pro. They also offer a free download once a week and through Christmas right now they are offering a free design a day! Oh happy day! They did come out with a new machine that looks very cool but I am so happy with the sd that I have no plans for the new one unless this one were to ever give up on me.

I had bought a bunch of vinyl in Christmas colors from Pick Your Plum and wanted to use that in some of my Christmas decorating this year so this is what I have done.

The nice thing about the silhouette is it will use the fonts on your computer! I also put snow flakes on the walls all around. I did forget photos of those but they are the same as the photo that says joy to the world.

Well I've gone on enough about this. No affiliation with the silhouette company, just one very happy customer here!
