The Vinyl Craze Continues

I am back today to share more with my latest craze with vinyl, it was a no brainer for my next gift. My oldest loves Greek Mythology. I customized her coffee mug with her name using the Greek alphabet and I added a trident to the other side as an added bonus. She is starting to enjoy her caramel cafe’s so this will be a nice surprise for her in the morning.








I really, really love the versatility using vinyl. What would you like to see customized on your coffee mug?


Happy Friday Hello Kitty!!

Just a quick note to say HI and Happy Friday! I am here to share more fun! Hello Kitty ~ so many cute and adorable images out there. My daughter wears glasses and I knew this was perfect for her! She LOVED it.










Vinyl allows you to personalize pretty much anything you can think of. The possibilities are endless!

It’s a Labor of Crafting

I hope everyone enjoyed the long three-day Labor Day weekend, I know I did. I spent my weekend with my family, birthdays, BBQ’s, movies, (fighting a horrible tooth ache) and my favorite hobby – crafting! I love everything my Silhouette Cameo can do. This past week I have been able to customize my very own Starbucks mug! I LOVE how it came out, it was such a hit I have friends and family requesting one of their very own! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just do this for a living!? One can dream, can’t she? šŸ™‚

Here is the mug I made…

One thing to note, I am using outdoor permanent vinyl. This is way more durable than the vinyl you can get at your local craft store. This is the same vinyl you see on cars with team logos, etc. It is for the most part permanent, the coffee mugs are hand wash only. Every dishwasher is different and in my opinion not worth the chance of the vinyl lifting, not from the water but from the heat of the drying cycle.



We celebrated my sister’s birthday this weekend too. There are so many things you can do with vinyl. One of the latest ideas I’ve seen floating around my crafty sites and blogs is monograms. I LOVE these so much I made two, one for my other sister! They are so personal and makeĀ gifts! The Silhouette Online Store is full of monograms to choose from! I got the stands at Michaels, but the tilesĀ can easily be drilled with holes and hung up instead.

That’s all for now. Until next time, do something creative.
