Fa la la Christmas Shirt with Glitter HTV
  Sometimes I get so wrapped up in creating things for other people (mostly my kids) that I don’t create much for myself. (Anybody else feel that way?)  After I finished sewing a Christmas dress for my daughter and started debating whether or not to make her or her brother a Christmas shirt with my just-arrived-order of glitter heat transfer vinyl, I had a bit of a “eureka” moment and realized that I don’t own any cute Christmas apparel!  Of course, that had to be remedied. It took almost no time for me to whip up this […]

Christmas Photo Booth Props with Free Cut File
  I saw this pin for a photo prop “I’m with Santa” speech bubble a few months ago and absolutely loved it!  It got me so excited to throw a Christmas party…and that was back in October!   When I saw Lauren’s Halloween Party Photo Booth Props over at The Thinking Closet, I knew I could pull off some Christmas Photo Booth Props with my Silhouette Portrait digital cutting machine.  So I set to work making that “I’m with Santa” speech bubble and a few other fun props…       and then got a […]

I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them!
