Decorating above the cupboards in the kitchen

I found some old frames in the back of my closet and decided to change things up a bit above the cupboards in my kitchen.  I read on line that the rule was: if you don't have more then 2 feet between your cupboards and the ceiling that you're supposed to leave that space empty, but it didn't look right.  So I added a little something to add some color to my very drab kitchen.
I emptied the frames of their original pictures and on the wall I put some pears that I cut from the preserves cricut cartridge, then I put the frame over the top of it and put the word, "EAT" onto the glass frame and voila!  For the drink frame, it was the same process and I got the svg file for the bottles on a web site I found through a google search.
The frame above the fridge I got at the dollar store and cut the silverware with my Eclips machine.

Baby onsies using my Eclips

I made these little onsies for a baby shower for a friend.  I found the onsies with the pictures embroidered on them and then added my own special touch with the words, using my Eclips machine, some heat transfer vinyl and a True Type font.  Mommy to be was pleased.

Normal Family T Shirt

Okay, if you're having a hard time seeing this, it says"If you met my family, you would understand".  Since my teen girls won't wear anything I make (they're to COOL), then I decided to make one for one of their friends. It turned out pretty good, if you don't look too closely.  I accidentally got the vinyl on there a little crooked.  Crud I hate it when that happens!

Halloween T Shirt

Ok, this is my passion right now, T shirts and heat transfer vinyl.  LOVE IT!  I thought this would be fun for boy or girl, but my kids informed me that no respectable boy would be caught dead in it, so I had to make them for my friends girls, since I only have boys in my life!

Thanksgiving Countdown Board

And this is the final board for the holiday countdowns.  I love the turkey that I cut in chalkboard vinyl for the countdown.  It came from the cricut cartridge Doodlecharms.

Christmas Countdown Board

I'm finally finishing up my countdown to the holidays boards that I started 8 months ago.  Here is the Christmas board!  I'm so happy with it.  Most of the cuts I got from random websites.  It's going to be fun counting down to santa with this board.
