26 Days to Vacation - I am on a countdown!

I love travel and vacations...who doesn't!  This year we are bless to be able to go for not 1 but 2 weeks to my favorite island in the world...St. Maarten!  Oh yes God is good!

Here is where we will be staying:

Oyster Bay Beach Resort on Dawn Beach.  It's in a little town called Oyster Pond and it sits right on the international boarder between Dutch St. Maarten and French St. Martin.  How can such a small island be 2 countries?  But it works just fine and we get the best of both where our resort is located!

Before we leave however we have the wedding of our oldest son - 12 days from now.  There is much to do so I will not be able to focus on our vacation until after the big event!  Then I will try to pack for 2 weeks and keep my luggage limited to 50Lbs - any suggestions?  Have a great week friends!

Monogram on my Silhouette

I made this today in about 15 minutes!

Super easy!  $1.00 dollar frame from the dollar store.  A $.50 piece of scrapbook paper as the back ground and vinyl letters cut out from my Silhouette Cameo.  I hug it with a silver ribbon left over from Christmas.  Oh so easy!

There is a Pinterest Party happening now!

Wedding Tumblers

While certainly NOT original I thought I would give a try at creating some wedding tumblers out of vinyl for some upcoming weddings....

I think they turned out pretty good.  This one is for the bride!

Super easy on my Silhouette Cameo!  LOVE IT!!

Next project....Pallets and Vinyl

My hubby is going to bring me home some pallets so I can begin work on this sign for one of the upcoming weddings....what do you think?


Happy New Year!  We have not 1 but 2 sons getting married in 2013.  Hard to believe it but our babies are growing up!

First up Kurt and Tori are getting married on Jan 26, 2013.  Then Jacob and Hannah will be married on September 28, 2013.  They got engaged at the Warrior Dash earlier this summer - a muddy mess but truly a great photo opportunity!

We are looking forward to both events and wish them life long happiness!
Todays craft - Etched glass... Created the stencil on my Silhouette... That do you think?  Cheap wine glasses from the dollar store - turned out pretty good I thought.
