Don’t be deceived by the seemingly simple vinyl application on this vase – she put the vinyl on the outside AND the inside for a cool, dimensional look!  The “boo” is found here in my Silhouette shop for all of you Silhouette users.  See the entire description here.

The perfect way to show your creepy Halloween spirit.

I had a request for a tutorial for how to use my Pocket Tags in the Silhouette shop and here it is!  Sure, you can use these pocket tags as a tag…but how fun is it to enlarge them and create a fabulous invitation!  The method for assembly of the tags works the same no matter how you use them – check out Kelly’s tutorial here for all the details and step-by-step instructions.



Go to the Silhouette shop for all Pocket Tag designs.  Just search “pocket tags kolette” when you’re in the store and you’ll find them.

We are getting ready to finish the rest of our basement.  I consider myself an organized, non-cluttery person but these three rooms in the basement have become a bit of a dumping ground and they need a good de-junking.  That happened today.  I have had some boxes stored on pallets and as the pallets are now free of piles, I thought….I should do a project with these pallets!  The project  that hit my email box last night came to mind – I love multi-use decor.  Love it.  Only one thing to store and it’s easy to change it out when the time comes.  Brilliant!


Come on, you know you want to try it.

Click here for Lisa’s tutorial on her double-sided holiday sign.  Look for my Halloween and Thanksgiving phrases in the Silhouette store here or in Lori Whitlock’s svg shop here.  These files are all made for an electronic die-cutting machine and Lisa’s tutorial is a great way to use vinyl to create  masks for this project.  I love how it creates a rough look when you do the mask method.



So, grab some wood (I want Lisa’s fence posts!) and choose your favorite phrases in my shop and let your holiday decor multi-task for you this season!  Lisa will help you – click here.

The Silhouette blog has been busy as we head into Thanksgiving.  Here is a simple tutorial about how to ungroup my quotes or phrases as well as how to create a border/mat using the offset command.   Click here for the complete instructions.  This same tutorial will work with most of my quotes and phrases so be sure to pin it for future use!  Find my “so thankful for you” layered quote in my Silhouette here.


And here’s a cute card using my banner words – Thanksgiving themed.   Click here for that post and here to find the shape in my Silhouette store.

Uggghhh!  Jason is back in the hospital for the same sore he has been dealing with all year.  After a third surgery (muscle flap and skin flap) and 10 weeks in the hospital, we thought he was coming home.  But his wound suddenly got terribly worse and now are back to square one.  It looks like it’ll be another surgery and another eight weeks before we get to be together full time as a family.  So, we’ll have to settle for face time calls and hospital visits like this one where Coleman is attempting a record-length smooch on Dad’s head.  It was long and full of giggles….the visit and the kiss.

The hospital is where have I been since I haven’t been on my blog.  Bummer!

And to top it off, Coleman figured out how to pronounce the word “hospital” correctly today.  Double bummer!  I love it when he speaks the way that he hears things and verbalizes words the “4-year-old way”.   Coleman is a great communicator but up until today, hospital has been pronounced “hos-ti-ble” and it always made us smile.  I would have been happy with him pronouncing it like that forever.

It is just a tiny manifestation that our little guy is growing up, learning and experiencing life faster than we want him to.  Parenting is a funny thing – we want our children to grow and become independent and move forward but at the same time we want them to stay right where they are forever.  I’ve been feeling those opposite pulls a lot lately when, as an early-bird, Coleman snuggles his little body next to mine at 5:30 in the morning.  Or when he holds my hand as we walk into the grocery store.  When he calls me, “Mama” or believes that the lavender “Bye Bye Scarys” spray really works to keep the monsters away at night.  I know that the more he grows into himself, the more he will grow away from me.  I want it, but I don’t at the same time.  Being a mom is tough and wonderful work, that’s for sure.

Along with visits to the pumpkin patch and picking out the perfect ones for our “jacky-lanterns,” this is a great time of year to be in my line of work.  I think I have created hundreds of Halloween and thousands of Christmas designs for various products over the years.  I love designing for this season and my Silhouette store is bursting with all kinds of Halloween quotes, words and shapes for any project.

Whether you have independent children in your life or not, enjoy this time of year with it’s ideas and projects and fun for any age.  Hang on to those memories and moments and embrace whatever stage your family is in right now.

Happy spooky cutting!  It’s project season everyone!
