Some Fun Projects & A Giveaway!!!

I’ve been having some fun with my Silhouette lately. I love how easy it is to make something when I get the idea or see an idea somewhere that I like ( like on pinterest-I love that site!) My good friend Andrea got some cut chalkboard labels for some jars in her kitchen. I loved it so I have been on the hunt for chalkboard vinyl. There are a number of places to buy it on-line, I just didn’t want to order and have to pay for shipping. I found some at Hobby Lobby and I am so excited about it! I used my 40% off coupon so I got a roll for about $4! I also found some cute jars at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off, so they were less than $3 each-total steal! I love how they look on my counter and my kids love seeing their snacks!

I just love them

I also made this cute menu to put on my fridge. It does leave a little chalk reside, but I love having it so I can remember what I am cooking each night for dinner.

I cut this out and it is by the bar where the kids sit. They drive me crazy complaining about whet color of plate or cup they want. Thomas’s kindergarten teacher always said it to her class and I love it so I put it on the wall so I can just point to it so they will stop their complaining!

I was at the dollar store yesterday and saw these cute bins and had to get them for my kids. I’m not sure what we are going to put in them yet, maybe shoes? I used some grey vinyl for their names. The font I used for the girls is Oh {photo} shoot! and the boys font is too much paper (one of my favorite fonts). I can’t remember where I got them, but they are both free so just Google them. I love how a little vinyl dresses up a cheap little bin.

Ooh, you're giving it away to the FIRST commenter, right? :)
I love those jar labels! And the quote is something we say all the time around here -- that is classic. Those are fun ideas.
My favorite thing about fall is just how plain beautiful it is here in Arkansas. Growing up in AZ, and then living in FL, I never really experienced a "fall" until we came here. That's when I fell in love with Arkansas. :)

Seriously--a give away?! I LOVE IT! My question for you, do you feel like your silhouette was totally worth it? I have lots I'd like to do in my house and wondered what those that have one think! Looks fun!

My favorite thing about fall is getting out the Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin lotion.

Those are so chalk board labels are so cute! I think these would be good for me because I'm always changing what's in my containers.

I also say the "you get what you get" quote to my kids. Though they often still throw a fit. :)
