My New Favorite Toy


Last Christmas, my Husband and I decided that we would focus on the kids and skip each other when it came to gifts.  After all, we just purchased our first home and that came with some other expenses as well.  So, when we finished our taxes and realized we would be receiving a pretty good refund, we decided to get our Christmas gifts a bit late this year.  My first thoughts when trying to decide what I wanted to do with my portion was to purchase a Silhouette.  I had fallen in love with my mom’s and all that it could do, I just needed to get my own.  So, I did, and I am having so much fun with it!  No tutorials today, just excited to show off some of my newest projects!

195006_10150183406170281_535250280_8971283_7576148_o I came across this menu plate on a blog and loved it!  The plate came from Wal-Mart, and the easel came from Hobby Lobby (which just opened up 10 miles from my house… I am in trouble now :) ).  Just write your menu with a dry erase marker and it wipes right off.  I’m having a lot of fun, and can’t wait to get some more projects done…
