My husband gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas. Until last weekend, it just sat and sat and sat in the box…
I was ignoring it on purpose. My husband would ask me “Um, what’s up..? That was an expensive present to just sit in the box… ” Truthfully, while I had yearned for this machine for EVER, I was intimated and overwhelmed by the thought of figuring it all out.
Girls Trip!! For months I had been envisioning using my Silhouette to create fun swag bags for our yearly girls trip.. This May, 13 of us were headed to Santa Barbara and I had “Hello Cali” on my brain.. With two days to go until departure, I plugged in the machine got to work making 15 bags. Lol. Nothing like a little pressure to get the job done…Right?
I bought the font and “hello” from the Silhouette online store. Hello is from the artist Jillibean Soup and the font is from the artist Lori Whitlock. I LOVE how the bags turned out! The girls were surprised and very impressed. Here is my friend Sue goofing around for an Instagram pic by the pool. I am beyond hooked on this little machine.
We rented a house this year. Let’s just say that we were a little giddy about the digs when we arrived.. Here are a few pictures. The 3rd pic down is the “pool room” and where I slept on bed large enough for 4 people.. It was a separate area detached from the house. Lol. Not too shabby, right?
Well, that’s it for today. Happy Sewing! Ps. You can now follow me on Instagram
