Pick Your Plum: Iron-On Vinyl at 50% Off

Today's Pick Your Plum Deal is a great one if you're into vinyl! And I have to admit, I'm into it. I'm an addict. Adhesive vinyl and my Cricut make me want to personalize everything and anything. It's almost ridiculous. Have you seen my laptop? But I digress...

Today's deal is Iron-On Vinyl at 50% off. You can't beat that! For $7.50 you get three 9x15 sheets of iron-on vinyl that can be cut with your craft cutter (Cricut, Silhouette, etc), scissors or an exact-o knife. Cut it out and iron it on. It's that easy! You'll receive one sheet in each of the following colors: Boiling Black, Toasty Turquoise, and Glowing Gray.

Decorate pillows, tote bags, t-shirts, skirts, shorts, whatever your little heart desires. My little brain is already bubbling over with ideas. Personalize your own stuff instead of paying someone else to do it (ahem- if you'd rather pay someone else, check out my shop!).

Get this deal while it's hot, there is a limited quantity. I can't wait to play with mine! I'll be sure to post what I've done once I have it in my hot little hands.

Go here to take a peek!

Monogrammed Tumblers - New!

Have you seen these tumblers? I LOVE them! I remember seeing them last summer at a certain well-known coffee shop, but of course they had the shop's logo on them. I thought, oh, those are cute, but I didn't necessarily want the logo. Fast forward to this past Spring/Summer. These tumblers are popping up all over the crafty world with monograms and many other fun designs, and now we're bringing them to you!

These are double-walled insulated acrylic tumblers with a straw included. I absolutely love my tumbler because it doesn't sweat when I'm toting around a tasty iced beverage. The tumblers hold 16 ounces, which is just the right size for a Grande Iced Mocha at the aforementioned coffee shop. And of course the reusable straw is included!

If you're looking for a great gift, this is perfect. Just slip a gift card inside the cup, stick it in a gift bag and you're good to go.

So far the Vine Monogram font has been the most popular, but other fonts are available as well. I really like this one, it just looks nice. 

I'm stocked up on tumblers and have another shipment coming in soon, so if you need one, check out the listing in the shop!

I Spy Bags - Finally!

I've been talking about I Spy Bags now for what seems like a year. Well, I finally have some to show off! Never heard of an I Spy Bag? They're bags made of fleece or fabric filled with poly pellets and little buttons or trinkets. Kids can manipulate the pellets through the bag to move things around and see what all is in there. Keeps little fingers busy!

 In my I spy Bags, I add fun buttons, colorful little stones, beads, and whatever else I might find that would be fun for a child to find. I also add letter beads that spell out various phrases, or I can make a name if you choose. For example, on my "Go Green" bag (above), I added the prase "Go Green". Silly, I know.

These bags are made from super soft fleece, but regular cotton fabric could be used as well. If you wanted to make a bag of your very own, check out Katie's tutorial over on Little Monkeys. In case you're wondering about the bags pictured above with the circle window, I did those on my embroidery machine instead of a regular sewing machine. You could achieve the same effect on a sewing machine, you just have to have a satin or zig-zag stitch, and be able to sew really good circles. :)

Or, if you just want to take the easy way out, you can check out what I have to offer in my shop. The bags pictured above are available now! More patterns and designs will be added soon.

Catching Up...

My my my, it's been a while! I haven't forgotten about my readers, I've just been busy. And I am in no way complaining! I did squeeze in a vacation, and I had actually intended to blog while I was on vacation, but that just never happened. I guess I was just too busy relaxing!

So, in the coming weeks, you'll be seeing more of me here and there, with some new goodies to put in the shop, some new projects, and more yummy brownie goodness. I think I'm personally most excited about more stuffed brownies than anything else!

Stay with me...and thanks for reading!

...And just because I'm a fan of putting pictures in every post, the picture above is where we were on Vacation: St Simons Island, Ga. Love that place!
