Vinyl is the new Black

y’all know I love to monogram, well, it’s been taken to a whole new level!

I got a Sihouette Vinyl machine- love! A friend asked if I had a website for my goodies…..
I laughed and mentioned a mostly neglected blog. These are a few things I’ve made from my cell photos.

This being a grown up stuff, well it’s not nearly as much fun as I thought it would be…
