Because of our family's "Spreading Sunshine" project (we didn't create it, but found it here: 
and the fact that Kylie's favorite song we sing at church is Scatter Sunshine (listen to it here: she decided to make a board that said "Scatter Sunshine" to help her remember.

Nothing spectacular or difficult, she just wanted to Mod Podge scrapbook paper onto a board (PINK!), but the yellow polka dot vinyl she chose made it whimsical and fun, plus I thought her choice for fonts was perfect.

Where can you get polka dot vinyl??? At Expressions to be exact. Now I normally am ordering large rolls of vinyl for use in my business, like 50 yard rolls sometimes, but I love this site because they sell vinyl and vinyl supplies and you can order smaller pieces. They sell rolls of 5 or 10 yards, but you can buy as little as a 12 X 12 piece.This makes it perfect for the home crafter (so those of you with Cricuts or Silhouettes--this is for you!) or for me when I am cutting a custom order from a specialty piece of vinyl. I may never need 50 yards of yellow polka dot, but that's exactly what my daughter picked out for the project for her bedroom, so I bought a 12 X 24 piece. The quality and brand name are the same that I normally purchase in the large rolls, so I know what I'm getting.

I mentioned the polka dots...Expressions Vinyl has cute cute patterned vinyl like zebra prints in various colors, damask and houndstooth prints in black and white, and the polka dot vinyl in every color imaginable:

They also have glitter vinyl which I will use in another project for my daughter (PINK & GOLD!), plus I've got some extra of the yellow polka dot to use for my own project. I'll post about those next time!

More words of wisdom

This is a recent quote I cut for a fellow writer friend. I think all of us have a corner somewhere where this quote would be applicable!

Who doesn't love a t-shirt with a saying on it?

Announce to the universe that you're a writer by putting it on a tee. (But since we all know that writers don't get out much because we're, well, writing, make sure it's a really comfy tee.)


Writer Chick
Love being a writer, hate the paperwork.
I sit around all day making stuff up.
I prefer to think of it as prepublished.
Don't be jealous of my sweet writing skills.
My weapon of choice...the mighty pen.
What does not kill me makes a great plot point in my next book.
The voices in my head are plotting against me.
Deadlines amuse me.
I'm in my own little world. (It's okay, they know me here.)
Writers always get the last word.
Blank page, I shall thwart thee.
Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.
If I don't get these characters out of my head they threatened to trash the place.
You're an awesome writer, now get back to work. (this one done in mirror image so it looks backwards till you look at yourself in the mirror)

OR send me your own creative idea! Ten bucks, plus shipping, puts whatever YOU want on a shirt. I have black, white, brown, red, navy, sky blue, pink, and golden yellow heat-pressable vinyl that can go on any color of shirt you choose.

I also make shirts for any occasion...Christmas, Family Reunion, or for everyday.

They make perfect personalized Christmas gifts, too!
