Keeping On With the House Redo With A Little Fun Thrown In

It's time for a SMT post, and I've got a lot to show this week. I spent a Sunday afternoon a week ago, making some Christmas t-shirts and personalizing some outfits for my great niece and nephews. I have to tell you that Sassy Cheryl is bringing back her colored images for sale. If you want to know why I'm so excited, just look at the adorable Christmas t-shirts I created with her colored images and using the Silhouette Printable Vinyl. These were so easy and so inexpensive to make. They're also going to be one of a kinds, because no one else in my area is going to have any like them.

Then it was back to house stuff. So these are images of the towel ladder that DH and I built for the bathroom as well as the coat rack or nightgown hanger I built for the bathroom. The knobs are just that, cabinet pulls.

I saw this saying on Pinterest and decided I'd dress mine up a bit using a frame. A friend brought me the wooden beads and I decided to make my hanging wire and use them. I smile every time I look at this.

Finally, I saw this FAMILY thing done on Pinterest and knew I had to do it for one of the open walls in my hall. I still have a lot of pictures to hang, but I love the look of this.

Through the years I've made Christening gowns for friends and family. I've also saved birth announcements so I have a wall in my hall that's going to have these hung. I created this vinyl floating image for the wall.
Now I'm off to empty my office. The floor people called and are going to be here tomorrow to put down the new floor in my kitchen, breakfast room and office. I'll have something to show y'all for next week for sure.
