Father's Day Gift Ideas/Mon. Blog Hop

Happy Memorial Day Everybody..Especially
to all of you wonderfully brave Service Men &
Women who have fought & died for our precious
FREEDOMS!!! USA! USA! USA! YEAH USA!!!!
A TREMENDOUS THANK YOU!!!!! Hope you all
have a wonderful day.

Speaking of Men..Father's Day will be here
soon (June 19th) & I thought I'd show you
a FUN idea for the dad's in your life.

I made a vinyl decal of a sports type car with
the word Dad's (meaning his money Bank!) on
it. You can get the glass bank's @ Home stores
& customize it to your husband, dad, father-in-
law etc. with sports stuff or whatever he likes.
(You could also fill the glass bank with his
favorite Candy Bars..Have fun making it with
your vinyl cutting machine.

Hair Bow Holder/Mon. Blog Hop

Hi everybody..Hope you had a good weekend.
Sorry this is getting up so late. Thought I'd
show you something I made for a friend of
mine who has 2 adorable little girls. I wanted
to make them something special for each.

This is a Hair Bow Holder..really simple..

You can get the glitter Letters @ Michael's &
I just glued some scrapbook paper to the
back & put on a metal saw tooth hanger (with
prongs already attached)

I sewed a washer in a little pocket at the
bottom of each ribbon (to hold the ribbon down)
used some 1 1/4" Gross Grain Ribbon (approx. 3'
long) I then glued a white wooden heart at
the bottom & glued a bow on top of the heart
for embellishment. And your done..

Your turn..What have you been working on?

Sweet 16 Candle/Glass/Mon. Blog Hop

Here is what I've been doing lately...
Celebrations of all kinds...It's that time
of year (Graduations..Special Birthdays..
Wedding Season!! Excitement & Fun..I love
it all.)

Below is my latest project...Easy idea &
so cute for the "Sweet 16 Teenager" in your
life. Surprise her/him (chose different colors)
with a beautiful "Personalized" goblet (or
you could change it up for the "Special
Graduate") whatever...the ideas are endless.

Just get that Vinyl machine out & cut out
"16" in 1 font.."Sweet" in another..& layer
on top of each other on a candle. Same
with the glass. Do the Monogrammed "B"
& then the name..Bailey in this case.

Now you have a beautiful way to start
their day with orange juice fit for a
King/Queen. They can use it all day long.
Sparkling Cider for dinner..It will make
them feel SPECIAL because they are!
Have fun making these..I did.
