Anniversary Gift

Our cousin has been in business with her hair salon for 33 years.  Her daughter also works with her.  My husband and I thought it would be really nice to make her some gifts to celebrate the anniversary. We found out the names of all the employees so that we could put their names on the coffee cups.  This way they would now whose cup is whose.  

Here are photos showing front and back of the mugs.
In the second photo the cup with the name Emma is for her granddaughter that is a toddler. She shows up now and then so we thought she needed a cup of her own.

Then we decided to make a nice photo slate of her sign for the front area of the business.  So very pleased how this looks and turns out.

Made these bookmarks as a thank you gift.  They are metal I used the template from the company the program I used was photoshop.  They were really easy to do and came out really nice.

Fall Decorations

Here are the rest of my Fall decorations on my dining room table.  They go right down the middle of the table.  I mentioned in an earlier post that after Halloween I will turn things around and it will be Fall and Thanksgiving.

Bottle of Boos

My friend sent me a photo that showed some ghost on a bottle that read bottle of boos.  I thought it was so cute. Later in the day I was in the Dollar Tree and I seen this orange bottle and I thought it would be perfect.  Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut out some black and white vinyl and I applied it to the bottle.  Then I placed some white battery operated lights inside.  This was so simple but, so cute and I am very  happy I made it.

Fall Mason Jars

These are the fall Mason jars I did last year.  I really like how they look and how they turned out.  Inside there is popcorn kernels and battery operated  LED candles.  The jars were done by placing a vinyl leaf on each jar and spray painting them. Once they were dried I took the vinyl off and then I put double stick tape on the back of some fall designed ribbon and I wrapped the ribbon around the top of the jar.  Then I tied some twine around the jar.

Here are some photos with the lights on and the lights off.  I take a pair of tongs to grab the LED light to turn it on and off it works so easy instead of putting my hand in, I have close to my hand getting stuck.

Fall Decorations

I have my Fall wreath hanging on the door now, it is time for me to get the rest of my Fall decorations put up.  This is a combination of Fall and Halloween.  After Halloween I will flip things around to show Fall and Thanksgiving.

Here is the fall LED candles.  I change out the vinyl each season then I put the vinyl I take off on a piece of wax paper so I can use the next season.  Here the fall ones are with out the LED lights on.

Now, here they are with the LED lights on.
Here is the LED for Halloween with the lights on and off.

Sublimated slate

We had a special request for a photo done in black and white on a slate.  This would be our first black and white project.  My husband did all the work using photoshop and lining everything up to fit the slate.  He made sure that the photo was crisp and that it could be seen well.

Here is the end result, so very pleased with how it came out so was the young lady that requested it. This photo is of her two dogs, having this done in black and white was an excellent choice.
