Hey yall! Happy Monday!
Its really happy for me, because we are headed to Savannah for a little R&R. Can't wait to put my toes in the water! You may not hear much from me this week as I enjoy some much needed beach time with my family :)
I'm linking up again with Tara today.
Last week, my sweet niece and I had a sleepover. She is visiting from Kentucky, so we only get to hang a couple times of year...I have to take advantage of the time I get!
We decided to have a sleepover, complete with pedicures, cookies, the Bachelorette, and crafting! It sure was fun :)
We decided to make those adorable bubble gum machines that have been floating around Pinterest. Here is how mine turned out.
All of the materials came from Wal-Mart (except for the raffia from Joann's and the wooden knob I stole off an old dresser at my mom's house) and cost me a whopping $5. There are lots of cute and colorful gumball machines on Pinterest, but I wanted to stick with the chalkboard to go with my classroom theme for next year. I made the vinyl letters on my mom's Cricut, which she's had since Christmas but had never used before this week.
It certainly got lots of use once she busted it out, because I fell in love with the vinyl letters! My sister helped show us how to work the machine and we cranked out a couple other things as well.
I made the 'welcome' below and put it on our front door.
I also made our last name and put it over the doorway leading to our dining room.
|I really need some curtains in here!!!|
|Please ignore the mess on the table!|
I already have tons of other ideas of where I can put vinyl lettering, so her machine is definitely going to be put to good use this summer!
I would love to hear some ideas from all of you, too! Leave me a comment below with an idea and your email. I will pick one winner tomorrow. The winner can pick any 3 items from my TPT shop.
