I got myself a Silhouette Machine - and it is SWEET. It's a vinyl cutter and in my opinion, way better than the Cricut machine - because with this you don't have to buy cartiridges. You can use your own Jpegs, use the FREE CD of shapes I got with purchase OR you can buy shapes for $.99 on the Silhouette website and you own them forever. It cuts vinyl, paper, lables, whatever you want.... so AWESOME! I used it tonight for the first time.
A co-worker and his wife had a baby two weeks ago - and her shower is this weekend. Her name is Addison, Addie for short and I just love love love giving "grab bag" type gifts. Usually I go with a basket but I noticed at the last shower I went to, almost everyone brought a basket. So I went with a nice pale pink pail - and I think she can use this forever. I used my cutter and personalized it. SO CUTE!
I stuffed it with little sherpa boots, designer looking pacifiers, University of Alabama stuff (her parents went there), socks, Bodreaux's Butt Paste, pink zebra fork and spoon, onsies, washclothes, headbands, etc ... I think it's so cute and I hope they like it!
I just love how the bucket turnd out! I think it's so cute and useful.
