First Silhouette Project - finally!

Well, here we are...almost to Christmas and over the past few weeks I finally started learning to use my Christmas present from last year. I know, I know, for shame. The present...a Silhouette Cameo...patiently waiting in its box for me to get it out and give it a whirl. It was past time.

Well, things have been busy, what can I say.

Here's what I decided to do for my first project. With five children, you'd think just getting everyone their own cup color would be enough, right? Well, not around here...the cups kept getting put here, there, and yonder, and then the question of "is this cup clean?" inevitably came up... So, a while back I found a drawer organizer "tray" at Target that was just the right size to corral those cups. What's the old saying...a place for everything and everything in its place? If only this was happening in the rest of the house...

So, I jazzed it up a bit this morning and added some vinyl!

Here's the end result - what do you think?  All of those cups hang out daily in the corral, and no more missing/lost cups.  :)

Now that I have the hang of my Silhouette Cameo, it's time to get working on some other projects I've been dreaming up over the past...ahem...year. At least I made something before this Christmas, right?  :)
