Seasonal Tiles with Frame

Image
There are 12 different tiles in this set. You can pop the tiles in and out of this cute little frame to celebrate the time of year - no matter what that may be!




Obviously, some of the tiles are repeated in the pictures, but I wanted you to see a closer view of the tiles and the frame. These sell as a DIY set (decals and frame) for $20.00 + $5.00 postage. If you want a set already put together and ready to display - or give - the cost is $30.00 + $12.00 postage. You can see these in my Etsy shop Here



Seasonal Tiles with frame

Image
I am really excited about this post. Several months ago I saw and idea using 4 x 4 tiles that pop into a frame and can be changed for different seasons, etc. I hadn't been able to find a frame that would work. Then a friend from church showed me a set that she had. She let me borrow it so I could figure out how to make the frames. Here is the set I came up with. I've got the tiles done. I'm still working on the frame. (I need to make a trip to my Dad's house for that for his expertise.) I haven't even figured up how much they cost to make, but I couldn't wait to post the tiles. I'll post more pictures with more details and info in a couple of days.

(PS - if this picture is fuzzy - I'll try to fix it another day - it won't load for me and it won't let me upload a new one - love dial-up internet.)

I like this one a lot. I think it turned out great. If you are interested in this wall lettering, you can purchase it here. This comes in two pieces, and as always, you can chose your color or colors (as shown in this pic).


What do you do with a Fancy Monogram?

Image
Put it on a refurbished milk can of course! I have a customer from Connecticut who had a milk can she wanted to redo for her front stoop. She asked if we could do a monogram without the name to put on the front of it. I said "Of Course!" She was nice enough to send me a picture. It turned out great - right? Thanks again, Liz.

The monograms can also be added to a tile and displayed in your home. This is the picture that another customer from Ohio sent me of her tile. It looks great on the top of her cabinets. Thanks Laura! We would love to customize your monogram. Our most popular size is 10 x 10 and runs $7.00, but we can size it to meet your needs. Just email for custom sizing and pricing. Here is our listing on our Etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=32076589


New Christmas vinyls

Image
Are you ready for some new Christmas decorations. I've been busy coming up with some ideas for easy blocks and tiles. Here are a few new ideas.








This one could be sized to fit your needs. If you want to put it on a tile (SO Easy!) or a block, we'll size it 10 x 10 - $7.00 or 6 x 6 - $5.00


This could go on a 2 x 4 block or a wall plaque. It measures 9 x 4 and comes in 2 different styles.
You can choose your colors - $3.50 for the vinyl.








These two are made to fit on 2 x 4 blocks. Paint your blocks the color you want then add the vinyl. $3.00 for the vinyl.

Gym Floor

Image
On May 8, 2009, the seniors at Marion C Early High School were all excited for graduation day. As they arrived at school to take the bus to their Senior Breakfast, they were ushered into the school hallways where they joined the rest of the students in a "duck and cover" while they waited out the tornado force straight line winds that tore through the town. When it was all over, the field house where they were scheduled to graduate that evening, had holes in the roof and inches of water covering the floor. Unfortunately, graduation had to be rescheduled and the gym floor and roof would have to be replaced. The booster club came up with an amazing idea for the floor. They decided to sell pieces of the old floor as souvenirs, as well as offer personalization for those who would like it. They are going to auction off large pieces representing various teams that played on the floor. Here are a couple of examples of the boards.






Upcycle old windows!

BEFORE
AFTER

I had a custom order for a gal in Arkansas. She had some old windows that she wanted to turn into home decorations. She sent me a picture of one of the finished windows. It turned out great! She did a couple more for her parents and inlaws. I thought I'd share a photo that she sent me. Do you have any old items that could be upcycled into some amazing home decor? I'd love to help you with your vinyl needs!
Image
This was a special order for a customer in Illinois. He was kind enough to send me a picture of the final product. He was happy with the outcome. I think it turned out great! Once again, a simple touch adds a big impact.

Custom Orders

Image
I thought I would share some of the recent custom orders I've done. These vases were done by Tisa Jackson. A talented crafter with a shop on Etsy. She requested a decal with her shop name to put on glass vases. This is what I came up with. They turned out great I think. We used a metallic silver for the vinyl and I think they turned out great. Check out Tisa's Etsy shop. She has some really cute items for sale including cards and mini clip board kits to use as birthday party crafts. Her shop http://www.tisascreations.etsy.com/
This window frame was done by a wonderfully talented woman in Canada. She wanted some quotes done for a couple of the projects she was working on. She also has a shop on Etsy. http://www.sempernova.etsy.com/ Here's what she has to say about her shop: " We rescue and restyle furniture and home decor that would otherwise be left for the land fill.
