I can personalize your Christmas ornaments!

I have a professional vinyl cutter and can personalize almost anything for you, including Christmas ornaments.

I thought I would post a few ideas. The ornaments pictured here are ones that I purchased at the 99cent store, six for 99 cents. I think that they are about 3 inches across, so they are the bigger ones. I then added a bit of ribbon. I think that they would make excellent, inexpensive Christmas gifts that look very finished and not home made.

Vinyl can also be applied to wood, ceramic, glass, mirrors, etc. Think of the possibilities. You could personalize frames, jars, tiles, and more.

If you are interested, just let me know. You can either call me or leave a comment. The price would be $1.00 per word or phrase. I'm not supplying the ornament, just the vinyl that will be ready to peel and stick onto your ornament.

My vinyl colors that I have are white, off white, black, brown, gold, and a dark red. I have a lot of fonts to choose from also. I would be more that willing to mail orders.

Holiday Baking has begun!

All of my little chefs like to be in the kitchen to "help" me bake. It can be a bit hectic and crazy to have them all want to participate, but I'm hoping to create some great memories, and maybe cultivate an interest in cooking. Next up on our list of things to make: cathedral window cookies, pumpkin fritters, peanut butter balls.

Two on a Tricycle

Juliette would love to be able to ride this tricycle by herself, but alas her legs aren't quite long enough. She seems to be content riding on the back of the bike with her sister though.

Weekend Getaway

Last weekend Josh and I were able to enjoy a little vacation without the kids. We stayed in Cameron, AZ at the old trading post. It is north of Flagstaff and about 45 minutes from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, in the middle of nowhere really. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a little peace and quiet in a unique setting.

This was just outside our motel door in Cameron.

This is an old building used for a gallery in Cameron,

Here's an old bridge right in Cameron.

We went to the Grand Canyon and really loved the view and all that there was to see. This is a watch tower that was built in the 1930's. I loved the architecture inside and out. We were able to go all the way to the top and look out over the canyon. (please excuse my "tiny" jacket, it looks funny I know, but it was all that I had)

Inside the watch tower.

My favorite picture of the canyon.

Tiny jacket again!

Monday as we were coming home we stopped at Sunset Crater Volcano national park outside of Flagstaff. It had snowed just a little and was already melting, but we got out and did a bit of walking and inhaled the clean mountain air for a bit.

It was a great vacation that I know both of us tried to make the most of, since I really don't know when we'll get the chance to get away again. Happy memories!
