Personalized Coffee Cups

14 Apr

Personalized Coffee Cups

Today I needed some major coffee to get me going. Mondays really sneak up on ya. In honor of my Monday morning BFF, Joe, here are a few coffee mugs I made.

I created the images and cut them out with my cameo in permanent vinyl and applied to coffee cups. These make a great gift or just something for yourself to enjoy your 5 minute break in the morning! If you don’t want to make them yourself – then you can buy them from my etsy shop here!

Wine Gift Bags

15 Mar Handmade Wine Gift Bags

So today I decided to do a chore that has been on the back burner – sewing up some of hubby’s pants. I lugged all the sewing materials out and lo and behold what do I see but some super cute chevron fabric. Absolutely perfect to help cure some of my spring fever. Needless to say, Hubby’s pants never got fixed, but I made about a dozen of these wine gift bags which I absolutely adore!!!

To make your own all you do is cut out your fabric (I measured and cut out 2 pieces of 5.5 x 13 inches), sew together and tie with a ribbon or whatever embellishments you like.  I think I may paint some bunnies on a couple for Easter! Its really easy and what a cute way to dress up a bottle of wine!

If you don’t feel like making your own, no worries… I made extra!!  To make a purchase, just click on this link to visit my Etsy shop!

Custom Koozies

25 Feb Its a MD thing

Yes it is WAY past my bedtime and I am dog tired, but my mind can NOT stop thinking about koozie designs.  I am preparing my inventory for my first Bridal Show of the season and I have gotten on a koozie kick.  Last night I woke up from a dead sleep (time check – 2:47am) because I thought of a Maryland crab design to make and had to jot it down in my handy dandy notebook before I forgot about it.   Between last night and today I have made 12 koozies and have come up with over 20 original designs to present at the show this weekend. And just in case you were wondering, the koozies work wonderfully… I had a cold Bud Light (my creative juice) by my side the entire time in a new “Lulu’s Goodies” koozie!

The pictures I took stink though. My camera battery is dead, but I was way too excited to wait until tomorrow to post these. So I will just take some new pics at the show this weekend for better quality. I just wanted to give you a sneak peak to see what was in store for you!   These koozies are not in my etsy shop yet (I will try to get them listed sometime this week)… but if you want to place an order or talk about the color/design details, then send me an email!

Nutella Filled Sugar Cookies

14 Feb Nutella Sugar Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Today I am going to share with you a super easy and quick tip to make your ready-to-eat refrigerated sugar cookies the perfect Valentine’s treat! These Nutella Filled Sugar Cookies are amazing. Well, anything with the word Nutella is amazing.

I used refrigerated sugar cookie dough (so I cheated, who cares?!) and cooked for 12 minutes in a greased mini muffin pan. As soon as they came out of the oven I placed a shot glass (party on, Wayne!) in each on to make a little cookie bowl. After the cookies cooled, I popped them out of the pan and filled them with Nutella. Tilly helped adding by pink sprinkles and candy hearts.

Nutella Sugar Cookies

We paired out treats with a glass of milk. I decorated this jar (Starbucks frappe bottle) by cutting out the heart shape out of double-sided adhesive with my Silhouette Cameo and sprinkling glitter over top! The ribbon and a cute Valentine’s Day straw sets it over the top!

After we ate our cookies we made Valentines. Here is Tilly’s o”fish”al Valentine for her daddy! It says “You are o-fish-ally my Valentine! Love, Tilly!” The fish is made of hearts cut with my Silhouette Machine. Tilly glued it all together and added some glitter (that’s my girl!) and then we strung it to a skewer “fishing. pole” with some glittered twine. He’s going to love it.

Happy Valentines Day, ya’ll!!

Manly Valentines Day Bouquet

5 Feb Monogramed Mug & candy bouquet

With so many Valentine’s Day treats marketed to women, it is hard to find something good to give your man for Valentine’s Day that isn’t super cheesy.  Actually,  my hubby could probably care less, he would probably rather just have a nice dinner than anything else. Or the “free pass” for him not to have to do anything for Valentine’s Day – But that’s Not Happening!

I still wanted to show him how much I appreciate him, so I made this manly Valentine’s Day Bouquet for him.  It has some of his favorites candies and some miniatures from the liquor sto’.

Manly Valentines Day Bouquet

I also made another  smaller version too with the left over candies.  For this one I also made a monogram out of vinyl and stuck it on a beer mug.

If you make one for your sweetie, let me know how they like it! :)

Wedding Shower Gifts

13 Sep Personalized Apron

Hi ya’ll!! Long time no talk. It has been a very busy summer for me, I have been doing plenty of projects and taking some pics, but no time for posting. Hope everyone had a great summer, I am def looking forward to fall and the normalcy of a schedule!

I helped a friend make some personalized wedding gifts for one of her friend’s bridal shower. We always have such a great time when we get together and craft… so it was more like a party to us!  Get some wine, put on some 90′s pop and it’s my kinda Friday night! This party night we made Mr. & Mrs. hand towels, a personalized apron for the bride to be and a frame with their last name and wedding date, all the gifts were made with my Silhouette Cameo machine.

Personalized Towels

The hand towels were super easy to make. We ironed on some bonding paper to the purple fabric (her wedding colors), cut the letters out on the Cameo and the ironed them onto the towels.  How fun and cute is that for an excited newlywed?!

The apron’s personalized lettering was done pretty much the same way as the towels: bonded, cut and ironed on.  The ribbon was sewed on around the edge of the apron as well as some buttons to cover the seams. Little more work involved, but so cute! I remember when I was engaged, my friend gave me an apron that said “Future Mrs. Hitch” I thought I was hot stuff when I sported that around. I still wear it around sometimes, it makes me smile :)

Personalized Apron

Last but certainly not least is the personalized last name cut from vinyl and framed. I already had the vinyl so all we needed was a frame. We chose to leave the background empty. The bride can hang it as is and the wall behind can be shown or the back can be covered with paper or fabric. I love, love, love this! This reminds me now that I want to make one for myself!

Great shower gift

The pictures aren’t the best quality… by the time we were done it was about 2am and we were beat!  Regardless, we had a blast together and the end result was beautiful personalized gifts that the bride loved! Yay!!

Until next time, friends!

Month Milestone Baby Onsies

11 Feb Baby Age by Month Elephant Onsies

 Hey there!  I wanted to share with you these adorable onesies that I made for my coworker’s baby shower.   The nursery theme was elephants so I decided to go with that theme for the onesies as well.  I created the elephant shape using my silhouette, colored it in, added some text and printed them out on iron on transfer paper.  I then ironed them on the age appropriate onesie and TA DA!  So absolutely adorable and homemade with love!

Baby Age by Month Elephant Onsies

Here they are in the box ready to go.  The onesies were stored in a plastic shoe sized container which I decorated using  green, blue, black & white vinyl with my silhouette machine.  I wanted to use the baby’s name, but the parents to be were not disclosing the baby’s name, so I just used their last name instead. 

Vinyl Decorated Box

As I was creating the month onesies, I got the inspiration to make this one as well.  Both the mama and daddy started work for our company as analysts… so I thought this was be such a  cute gift.  I created the text and overall shape with my silhouette machine, found the clip art online and then printed & ironed it onto a onesie.

Baby Analyst Onsie

Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend the shower, but I heard afterwards that this onesie was a shower highlight.  I still have people come up to me raving about them.  YAY!  

If you love these as much as I do but don’t have the time to make them… then visit my etsy shop here and I would love to make you some!  These are a great baby gift to help the new parents document their sweetie’s growing milestones.  I can customize the design and colors to your choosing, personalize with a name or whatever you like!  Just shoot me an email and we can work out the details!  

Until next time, friends!


Valentines Day Burlap Banner

23 Jan Valentines Day "Be Mine" Burlap Banner

Valentine’s Day is in the air!  I love seeing everyone’s cute ideas out in blogland on their various Valentine Day projects. So many sweet receipes, crafts and cards to create!   I am a complete girly girl so all the pink hearts, flowers, chocolate and glitter gets me all excited!   I am working on romancing my mantle up a bit and thought the best place to start was with a festive banner. 

Valentines Day "Be Mine" Burlap Banner

This “Be Mine” one is my favorite.  I told my Valentine I made it just for him… he rolled his eyes ;)


 I had some red and natural colored burlap left over from Christmas so I used that to cut out the pennant shapes, which are strung with a lace trim.   For these with the red glitter letters, I used my silhouette to cut out letters on double-sided adhesive, secured on the burlap, and glittered it up. 

 Valentines Day Burlap "Love" Banner

For this banner, instead of using red glitter letters I created a stencil with my silhouette and stenciled the letters in with black paint.

 Valentines Day "Love" Burlap Banner

I just LOVE how they all turned out! So cute! I kept one and gave one to each of my sisters.   If you want one, then you can purchase one at my Etsy shop here.  

Until next time, friends!
