Lookin' Good...

So today I was totally going to do a mini tutorial about how I painted my Baby Cute-e-cutes walls, but instead my awesome sister-in-law (who is in town from PA) came over and brought her hubby and silhouette to help me do a little vinyl lettering around my house and add a little something to my still kinda barren new home walls.  We didn't get as much done as we would have liked (I guess I will be asking Santa to get me a Silhouette this year).  But I am loving what we did get done.

I think I still may need something above it... ummm like maybe a big clock.  I always like a big clock.  But I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the vinyl looks and feel like it really warms up the space.
I have to give a lot of credit to my bro-in-law for this masterpiece.  Since the cutter only cuts up to about 8 inches high letters and I wanted 12 in high letters he totally just turned the letters the right way in the program, and then he was the genius who thought to lay it out exactly right on the table and piece it together there, rather than trying to measure and place each letter individually on the wall.  And he was the one who climbed up the ladder to adhere it to the wall some 10 ft up.  THANKS!
Now after getting a glimpse into the awesome world of the Silhouette craft cutter, I don't know how I will be able to craft without one.  Oh the things I could do if I got my hands out one (I am typing that with a dreamy far off look on my face.)


  1. That looks way nice! Great work!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up a post about your door! I absolutely love how this turned out.

    Oh, to have a sister in law with a Silhouette! I dream about having one, with a very similar look on my face, haha!

    Have a great night and thanks for visiting!

  3. Love can I get my hands on one that says Fuerst est 2002 for 8 ft ceilings. How much in same colors?
