I just love playing with all the specialty materials that I've been stock piling since I first purchased my Silhouette machine 3+ years ago. Today I decided to break out the printable magnet paper and play. I don't know what took me so long to finally try the magnet paper but I am totally hooked! And I am pretty sure my kids are A-OKAY with that, too, after making them this awesome, fun on the go, magnetic Halloween storyboard!

Happy middle of September already everyone! I honestly can't believe the month is half over and I also saw something on Facebook this morning about 100 days til Christmas? How can that even be? Well since we have half way through September it's a great time to start thinking about Halloween and Autumn crafts so I am here to show you how you can make your own Split Pumpkin Monogram. The best part of this tutorial and that you can apply it to any shape for any holiday or season or party or whatever you want! Also, I am sharing a great September promotion from Silhouette today that lasts through the end of the month!!
The temperatures are inching downward and I am itching to get in some front porch sitting. Summer time is entirely too hot to sit on our southern facing front porch and so, sad to say, it's gone neglected as of late. Today I decided to change that neglect and give the porch my full attention. It started with a pillow I made last year and ended with 3 more to coordinate! The best part of all 4 pillows, besides the fact that you can make each one in around 20 minutes with only the most basic of sewing skills, is that they are all reversible!! Dual purpose really makes each pillow like 10 minutes, right??
If somehow you get to my front door and haven't noticed the University of Florida license plates and decals on our cars and you missed the Gator garden flag in the front bushes AND you missed the Gator gnomes guarding our front steps then you will definitely understand where our college football (and baseball, basketball, softball, and so on) allegiance lies when you see the biggest wreath I've ever made. After years of making wreaths for others I finally decided it was time to make one for myself and since I didn't have to ship it anywhere I could make it as big as I wanted. So I did.
Howdy friends! Today I am coming to you with one of my favorite featured to use on my Silhouette machine; the Print and Cut feature! I mean, anyone can make circle or square labels, once you've spent hours figuring out how to line up your printer with the template on your computer screen, but with the Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait you can make any size or shape label easily! Continue reading for a step by step tutorial on using the Print and Cut feature AND stay tuned for a very special deal if don't already own a Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait.
Back to school also means back to college football, which just happens to be the best time of the year. I believe that as of today there are 24 days left until Gator football starts! Even though we had just about the worst season ever last year my love for my Alma Mater is still as strong and vibrant as ever. To help get us in the spirit I've design a cute mini banner than can be printed in 1 page, cut out easily, and strung together to show that we've got spirit! (yes, we do. we've got spirit how 'bout you!)

My first born is going to be a first grader! I am not sure how we got here so fast, but we're here, in the thick of back to school shopping...for a FIRST GRADER! When the school supply list came out a couple weeks ago I printed it out and got started. Since Sharpie® markers were on the teacher's wish list I headed to Staples! They have pretty much any formula of Sharpie® you might need, even the oil based ones you'll want to pick up if you want to decorate a ceramic mug or plate! And since the teacher wanted Sharpie® markers I thought I would take this opportunity to make a super fun Chalkboard Sharpie Holder to give them in!!
