New Sponsor

I really that I have another sponsor!! This one I'm sure several will love. It's a vinyl company where you can get vinyl for really cheap!! It's called Expression Vinyl

There have a TON of colors of vinyl! The best part, they come in sheets that are 24" long and 12" or 9" wide. And they only cost $1.59 (for 9") and $1.89 (for 12") so you can get a lot of colors that you want and you don't have to buy a full roll! You all know that I LOVE color so I was so excited to see that I could get lots and lots of colors!

They also have extremely fast shipping. I ordered mine on Tuesday this week and it came on Friday.
I was able to create this with it:
My son has a Thomas the Train room, so I was super excited to be able to make this for him and the colors match perfectly!! Each train car is 7"x11".

Expression Vinyl has more than just vinyl they even have accessories. I ordered a replacement blade for my Silhouette.

I have lots planned for my vinyl from Expression Viny, so you'll be seeing more of it! I bet you can find lots to do with it too, so go check them out!

Motivate Me Monday #55

Sponsor of the week: Sweetheart Silver

Personalized silver jewelry!

Sweetheart jewelry has some super pretty jewelry! I'm very proud to be a mom and I like to show it, so I made a necklace made with my children's names on it. I love it!! It's so elegant and pretty but so personal too!

Hello everyone!! I really hope that all of you got to do some awesome crafts this past week. Sadly, I wasn't able to. First I had strep throat and then when I finally got feeling better, I got mastitis and my 2 year old got a ruptured ear drum. So there hasn't been much time for crafts!! Hopefully this week I'll be feeling better and so can I start creating again!

Luckily I was able to go through the links before all the sicknesses hit hard. There are a ton of Valentine's Day crafts going on. I'm a little behind, that's for sure!!

Here are a few of my favorites from last week:
Yolanda from Miss Refashionista made this head board out of electrical tape, I love it!!

Sharon from Keen Inspirations made this arch and then decorated it with scrapbook paper, awesome!!

Carrie from Dittle Dattle made this piece from different sized mirrors, amazing!
Framed Broken Mirror Art

MIndy from Create One Day in the Future made this adorable money muncher, so fun!

Ginger from Support Blog for Moms made this area rug out of carpet samples, I so want to try this!

Aime from Kitty Cats and Airplanes made this beautiful skirt! This is going on my to do list for sure!

Notice anything different?

Have you noticed a change on my blog lately? Well I finally got a custom background and I love it!! I love that it matches my header and buttons! I wish I could say that I did it, but I just don't work well with computers. So Erika from Oops, I Craft my Pants and The Fairy Blogmother did it for me.
She did a great job. I told her what I wanted and she did exactly that. She even put the flowers and number of flowers exactly where I wanted, without me telling her. She does a great job!!
