It's time to party!

"It's not a hangover, It's the Wine Flu!"

That's what a bunch of ladies will be saying after enjoying these wine glasses!

I made these glasses for a upcoming bachelorette party!  If your going to party you should do it with personalized cheetah & hot pink wine glasses.  You will definitely make a statement!

Each glass has lots of polka dots and the initial is double layered vinyl.  
The glasses are finished off with a fun mix of cheetah print and hot pink ribbon.

These were so easy to make.  If you haven't played with printed vinyl yet, you should!
The designs are endless.  Check out Springfed Printing for a great variety!

Jesus & Germs

I have been making signs for a while now. 
 I haven't even posted about most of them.  I have three in the works right now!  For some reason painting has become a calming time for me and I need all the calm I can get. 
So what does Jesus & Germs have to do with signs?  Stick with me..

I found this wall decor at Hobby Lobby in the clearance isle for $5.  The board is made out of MDF. 
I knew that this would be perfect for a particular sign I had in mind.
I simply slapped two coats of paint on the top.
I did not tape off the edges, I wanted the raw splattered look.  Next I cut stencils out using my Cricut.
  I used scrap vinyl I had.  The vinyl was laid on the board and the letters were traced with a pencil. 
Easy, Easy, Easy!

"Wash your hands & say your prayers, cause Jesus & Germs are everywhere"
This should be every mom's motto!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I am ready for the busy week ahead!

Happy Birthday from Varsity China!

How stinkin' cute is this??  I am so in love with this plate. 
 Varsity China now has these cute Birthday Plates. 
 What a great way to help make that birthday even more special. 
Each member of my family will get to eat off the Birthday Plate on their big day! 
The plates also come in pink and baby blue.  SWOON!

Check out these details..

Every detail of this plate is adorable.  The quality is amazing. 
I was shocked by the weight and thickness of the plate.

Even the back is adorable!

I originally blogged about Varsity China here..
The College and State plates are just amazing to me and I love the thought of giving them as a gift.

I can just imagine a State & College plate flanking a gorgeous framed degree.
Get one, you won't be disappointed!!

Old Florida Nautical Map

A few years ago I bought this map of Cedar Key, Florida.  It was mass produced and made to look old.  I had originally planned to frame it but that never happened.  I have been dreaming of what the map would look like if I distressed it and made it really worn.

So I crumpled it up, torn and burnt the edges.  Burnt a few holes in spots and added some distressing ink around the edges.  The wrinkled areas also were rubbed with distressing ink.

I lazily slapped Mod Podge and placed it on a rectangular canvas. 
I went back over the edges with wood stain for an even more burnt look.

All of the shells were found in the Gulf of Mexico while scalloping.
The large ones are Horse Conch.  I was thrilled to find these.
The sand dollars were also found while diving this year.

This was a nice way to add a bit of my Florida in the house!

What's every one been up too?? 

I got a new laptop today and have lost alot of my blogging notes. 
 I would love to know of more parties that are going on.
