I know I promised more of my opinions on the new Silhouette Cameo ($299 for the machine and your choice of starter kid using code CRAP through the 31st) yesterday, and they’re coming. I’m done cutting, but I didn’t get to the picture part. If you follow along on Facebook, you’ve already heard this. If not, here’s the short version:
Keller’s football team had a trunk or treat last night, and I decided to force my little boys to wear last year’s costumes and decorate our trunk all Christmas-y and hand out candy canes. Because I have a tendency to go overboard with stuff like this, we suddenly NEEDED a North Pole. I made a quick stop at Lowe’s for some PVC pipe and Michael’s for colored Duck Tape and we were in business. Throw in a canning jar ring, a Styrofoam ball, and some old grocery bags and you’ve got this:
Add a board from the garage, some craft paint, and some vinyl lettering and you’ve got this:
Let’s not mention the part where I hacked up a pool noodle with a bread knife and used a broken broom handle and more duct tape to get that baby to stand up straight…
So, I promise I’ll get to my other project a little later today. In the mean time, don’t forget to enter to win $40 of Scentsy from my pal Emily (go here). And then, head on over to the SNAP! site to send some love to sweet Ashley from Lil Blue Boo. She’s been through the wringer this year. Ashley is one of the most lovely people I’ve ever had the opportunity to meet.
Be back soon!
