Thanksgiving Decor using Heat Transfer Vinyl

Good evening all.  I hope your week is going well.  It is pretty busy here, but when is it not with two kids.  I had mentioned previously that I really wanted to make some more Holiday decor for my home.   Well today I have some tea towels I made for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  

I have been looking for some plain white tea towels for a while to decorate.  I looked at the Dollar store and couldn't find any without a ton of texture.  I found these ones at Target for $3.99 for a pack of 4.  Pretty good deal I thought.  I used a couple text shapes from the Silhouette online store and some Expressions Vinyl heat transfer to create these.  The hardest part was weeding the subway art.

Well that's all for tonight.  I do have some exciting news though.  I am done with our Christmas cards!!!  This is a big deal for me as I have not sent out Christmas cards in two years.  I did send New Year's cards, just couldn't get Christmas ones done.  Well not this year.  I will share those later, and may even do a video explaining the more complicated design aspects.  We will see.  Have a great night and rest of your week.

Our Halloween Costumes

Hi all, hope you had a great Halloween.  We had loads of fun.  The girls trick or treated for an hour and a half with no complaining.  It was great.  So just a quick wrap up of the costumes for you today.  My oldest daughter decided she wanted to be Fancy Nancy.  I was super excited that she wanted to be a book character because that means she really loves her books!!  My youngest daughter wanted to be the Tooth Fairy.  I think she wanted to be that because we are anticipating a visit from the Tooth Fairy any day now.  So here are the cuties ... 

And here are the close ups ... 

I made the t-shirts using my Silhouette and some heat transfer vinyl.  For Fancy Nancy, I bought some cat-eye glasses, popped out the lens, and added some feathers and jewels.  For the Tooth Fairy, I made the crown with some 16 gauge wire, toile, and used felt to make the teeth.  The wand was made the same way with a wooden dowel.  The tutus we have had for years.  

Well that is it, hope you enjoy your weekend and can make time to be crafty.
