Class of 2023

This weekend we took a visit to see Princeton University. (Yes my son is in 4th grade) Even though we just went to walk around and enjoy the scenery, I really think it's important for him to know what he is working toward (good grades, leadership, college, etc)...oh, and we bought him a Princeton t shirt too!

I made up this logo...

Here is a great tool I saw posted on another forum (thanks lindamac), and I knew after playing with it that this could be a really cool tool for using with the Cricut and especially conducive to cutting with vinyl. With a few strokes you can create your own "seal" and save it to your computer and then you can put it right into SCAL and cut it. You have lots of different shape, font and design options. Definitely bookmark this - I think I'll be using it a lot! (Click on the photos for a better look)

Scooby Dooby Do

I saw this as a car decal and knew I had to recreate it as a shirt. My son and his best friend wanted matching t's. I used the iron on vinyl (siser Easy weed for the shirts). The font is Two Peas Mr. Giggles. The shirts say "What would Scooby do?"

Another place to put that vinyl...

I was on vacation and in the car for 15 hours. I got to see lots of cars and thought, boy all of these car carriers really need to be decorated with vinyl. Nothing is safe from vinyl...This is not my car or carrier, but a rendition of what it could look like...
