 I love this time of year because it offers me a opportunity to reflect on the many blessings in  my life. There are so many things to be grateful for,  the laughter of children, jumping in autumn leaves, yummy treats baking in the oven, bear hugs, baby kisses, family gatherings, and so many more I don't know where to stop. What are you grateful for?

I designed the vinyl for this project this weekend as a visual reminder to myself of some of the many things I am grateful to be blessed with....

I found this inexpensive charger plate at walmart, and designed the vinyl to fit in it perfectly.  The vinyl is 8" in diameter.
If you would like to order the vinyl to complete this project, please visit our website it is under SHOP  then PROJECTS.

How to apply vinyl graphics....It's Easy!

A friend of mine requested this adorable Frankenstein graphic for a project she is working on. I took it and drew some friends to keep him company and I thought it would be a fun project to show how easy vinyl graphics are to work with.
Here are the step by step directions to vinyl graphic application.

Step 1: Prepare your surface, if it is a wall -wash and dry it, if it is wood- sand and paint or stain(let it dry completely), for a tile- wash with windex and dry. Etc,etc.

Step 2: Lay your vinyl application on your surface and line it up, if you are placing it on a wall an easy way to make sure you keep it level is to first make a level tape line to use as your guide.

Step 3: Lift the transfer tape with the vinyl attached then carefully line it up and place it on the surface,  once you are content that it is aligned correctly use the wood application tool to firmly rub over the entire graphic completely.


Step 4: Gently pull the transfer tape off your surface which now should have the vinyl graphic adhered to it. However, if any of the vinyl remains on the transfer tape gently lay it back down and rub more firmly.  Then repeat the process of gently pulling the transfer tape off.  There are times when you may need to use your fingernail to hold smaller pieces of vinyl, that are sticking to the transfer tape.

Voila, finished product!
