Checking In + June Silhouette Promo

Well hello there.

Can I start with a little PSA?

Please, please, please ask your parents/grandparents/in laws if they’ve signed up for Medicare if they’re eligible.  The mess we’ve been dealing with the last week is unbelievable.  Fingers crossed that the Medicare interview this afternoon ends with some good news about it being retroactive.

Seriously…go call them right now.  Make sure they’re insured.  Please?

And now, the information you’re all really after:


Silhouette SD
2 packages tattoo paper
for $199


25% off of EVERYTHING in the Silhouette shop (excludes downloads and gift cards)!

As always, use code CRAP to take advantage of the savings.  Promotion runs June 21st – 29th.

The nice folks at Silhouette sent me some tattoo paper to play with.  In the interest of current life chaos, I made some tattoos.  The kids had a fabulous time with them, and I didn’t take any pictures.  I did have a little trouble with the machine not cutting all the way through the paper on the settings that pop up in  Silhouette Studio, even with double cutting.  I’d suggest increasing your depth just a little.

We also made BC some tattooed golf balls for Father’s Day, as seen on the Silhouette blog.

(If I did it again, I wouldn’t cut out the centers of the letters…that’s what caused the little black floaty things.)

I’ve got a couple of other ideas brewing with the tattoo paper, and (hopefully) I’ll be back sharing them later this week.  And if you’ve emailed me, I’m sorry.  I probably haven’t even looked at it yet.  Maybe today?


Please follow and like us:


  1. Those golf balls are great! Can’t wait to see what else you come up with :)

  2. Great idea for tattoos! Love that it is unconventional! Tattoos are hard to get creative with. And thanks for the reminder about the Medicare. Calling my family right now! Good Luck! Hope all goes well! Love ya Char!

  3. I love the golf balls! And thanks for the heads-up on medicare. Thank goodness my dad has amazing insurance. He is covered by Educator’s Mutual for the rest of his life since he taught for 40 years in the school system here in Utah. Much better than medicare. Where have you been? I haven’t seen you on my blog for a while. If you get a minute, stop by and say hi.

  4. I hope things get cleared up this afternoon.

  5. I hope that meeting goes well! Seriously…you guys REALLY deserve a break! And great job on the golf balls. I really like them! Thinking about you! :)

  6. So sorry about all the stress with your FIL. I hope that everything turns out well for you guys. I’ve been worried about you and I’m glad to see you back. *Hugs*

  7. Geez, it sounds awful about what’s going on with the medicare and all that. Sorry to hear about it. I really hope it all works out. xoxo
