The above Family Monogram is my newest addition to what I've been working on this week.
Families are what Life is all about.. & this is a great way to put it on the wall. I love how it looks & especially the font & est. 2011..It's neat to see when 2 people fell in love & established their Family.

With Spring here (ha..ha..) Easter Baskets..eggs..goodies are not too far off. Sometimes if you have Easter Baskets (or whatever) for your older kids..
What do you give teenagers besides candy? Not a stuffed animal!.. How about a Candle like the one below.
I just made the Name/Monogram out of beautiful vinyl Easter Colors & came up with this. You can do Polka Dots or just Monogrammed Initial/Name....
Another Idea might be Cell Phone Monograms..Teenagers LOVE these.. CLICK HERE TO SEE CELL PHONES Anyway just a few ideas for Easter for teenagers & adults.

Fun to create & work with & a great canvas
to put any Vinyl Decal on.
Besides that they now have them with a 2"
hole (in top or bottom) with a plastic slit
to either use as a bank or put mini lights in
& the plug easily slides thru the slit..Did I
say I love these!
I put the nativity on them for the past few
Christmas' & with lights..they are beautiful.
But I love these even better where you can
use them as a bank for your children (or even
One of the cutest ways to personalize these
is layering the name on top of a Monogram
Initial& putting a nice bow around it! Then
to top it off my Favorite thing is polka dots.
(see photo BELOW)
Below is the Monogram Initial only..what a
BIG difference it makes when you add the
Name & layering..This also would look great
with a Family Monogram & Name.
BIG DIFFERENCE with Name & polka Dots!
