Welcome to my blog! I hope you find some inspiration for your projects, the same way that I find inspiration from the many blogs that I visit each day. My goal for this space is to show and explain the many crafts, food, home decor and genealogy projects that I have done and continue to do. Whenever possible, I'll try to include a list of materials. No promises though, since some of my materials are from many years ago and I don't remember where they came from.

This is a project that I am helping the Kindergartener Room Parent's with at my daughter's school. They wanted to make shirts for each kid for field trip days. The teacher's name is also going on the back of the shirt for easy identification. I've cut lots of vinyl but never the heat setting vinyl. They bought the vinyl from Expressions Vinyl and I cut it on a 12x24 mat. I used Cricut Doodlecharms for the apple and the font is Cricut Plantin Schoolbook. It cuts very easy, just follow the directions that Expressions Vinyl give you for your machine. They have a video that I suggest watching before you get started. For a Cricut, you have to set the pressure to 3, the blade depth to 2 and the speed to 2. Any more and you will cut through the transfer tape. This vinyl ironed on very easy for me. I can see this being a great project for other activities including birthday parties and my daughter's Girl Scout troop.
