Happy Birthday

To my sister in law!!! My sister in law loves unicorns, so I knew I had to incorporate them in her gift! I looked all over before finding the one I felt was just right! She loved it! It just tickles me to be able to create a personalized gift in a matter of minutes now! This was my first time working with glitter htv! When I went to weed it, I ripped the "M" so I had to redo it! It could be that I didn't change the depth of my blade before I cut it, as it just didn't separate as easily as regular htv! It isn't as thick as it appeared to be before I cut it either though!

Still Alive and Kicking!!!

Wow, it's been so long since I last updated my poor blog! In all honesty, It's been a rough year thus far. I was diagnosed, last year, with severe emphysema, so I have more down days than up here lately. I bought myself a heat press last month and it has awakened my love of creating again!! I am SO in love with this new tool! I've only used it a couple of times, but it just amazes me at how easy it is to repurpose something old and make it new again! My green tank top has been in my dresser for years, but I rarely wear it other than for yard work and such. Well, now it is more exciting and just may get more use!! I've been wanting a fishing shirt but just couldn't find exactly what I wanted so I made myself one with an old shirt that was also in the dresser. My great nephew just turned 3 and I had planned on making him a shirt with a dinosaur on it but just hadn't had a chance to go purchase the shirt as of yet, so tonight while resting a pulled muscle in my back, it dawned on me to make a pillow out of the large amount of fabric I've been hoarding for years now, LOL In hindsight, I would pull the dino down a bit and bring the name up a bit, but he won't care one way or the other! The last shirt is one my mom wanted, but couldn't find it through her searches- it was super simple to create myself! I hope everyone is doing well and having a great start to the year! Love and *Hugs*
As a side note, I've had my Silhouette Cameo for a while now, but just ordered myself the CB09 Blade holder and blades and I have got to say, it was one of the best purchases I have made in a long time!!! Wow does it cut intricate designs and tiny lettering without skipping a beat!!! I purchased mine off E-Bay as it is my drug of choice, LOL
