Hello, Silhouette!

Hello world of crafting and blogging!  Oh how I have missed you!  I have been quite busy over the past couple of years and have not had much time to get crafty....but boy have I missed it.  Crafting is my release....and do I have some releasing to do!  I have recently slowly started working my way back into crafting and boy do I feel much better!  Crafting is a part of me and without it....I am just not myself!  LOL

So anyway......I am super excited to say that I have passed all things Cricut on to new owners and have ventured into the world of the Silhouette Cameo.  I am still learning.....but WOW....what can this machine not do?

One of my first projects is this super adorable gift for my neighbor.  She is having a baby in a couple of months and when I saw this I HAD to reproduce it.  And the Silhouette made that a very easy task!!!!!

I use to sing "Baby of Mine", from the movie Dumbo, to my kiddos when they were little; and sometimes sing it randomly even now that they are not so little anymore... (excuse me while I wipe a tear or two).

This is a super simple starter project....but I love it nonetheless!

I picked up the Silhouette Printable Cotton Canvas from a great local craft store.  I saw it and just had to play with it.  I love playing with new materials!!!!

I found the image and recreated it in Silhouette Studio using the tracing tool.  I then colored it in, chose a fun font (A Yummy Apology from

I printed out the design and then cut it out with the Silhouette ( is just a rectangle...not extremely impressive....but give me some time....I have only had my machine for a couple of weeks.....I will get there!)

I did sew together the little washcloths too. I found a little tutorial on how to make these washcloths...super easy....and they are so much better than the cheap ones I found at Shopko.  And 100 times more adorable too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to share more fun projects...crafting world watch out...I'm back!  Bwahahahahah!!!!!!
