Wow. This is very exciting! Thank you for offering such a great give away!

Congrats! Lucky girl!

I just bought an ugly little chair from goodwill that I am using for my first reupholstery project. That back of the chair has the perfect place for a monogram decal! I would love to have one :)

Dawn said...

My fiance just bought me a beautiful antique four poster bed...it's HUGE! I would LOVE a monogram for the headboard...:) Or even one that I could frame and put above the bed...you know...in that great big blank space...:)

congrats to the winner!
what a generous offer! i have many MANY projects in mind!! but at the top of my list is an iron-on transfer monogram for family room pillow cover. :)

Ayana Huff said...

Congrats to the winner. "Good Morning Sunshine" for the mirror in my kids bathroom. they do so well getting up and getting ready for school <3

Katie Newcomb said...

What a generous offer!

I'd love love love a silhouette vinyl to put in the bedroom (see location here: http://newcombhome.blogspot.com/2011/02/hold-my-hand.html).

I'm thinking either a tree branch with blossoms or a casual abstract pattern, something to liven it up a bit. We just bought our house about 10 months ago and there's still no art in my bedroom.

Thank you!!

You work so hard and are just so nice. Your cabinets look fabulous and I appreciate all I learn from you and your DIY projects.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

I forgot my project, sorry! I'm in a brand new house and working on my guest bath. I'm trying to make my house a home ;D Thanks so much!

Meri said...

Congrats to Sweeter Hours!
I'd love a monogram! Thanks for a chance to win!

taidyeoriginal said...

OH! Pick ME! I need a couple of shirts for my Daughter's upcoming "Cupcakes Rock" birthday party! I created a graphic here http://taidyeoriginal.blogspot.com/2011/02/what-is-your-crafty-opinion.html and finding someone to print just 2 shirts (one for me and one for her) is EXPENSIVE!! Is this something you could do with the transfer stuff?

PicturePerfectPixies said...

Congrats to the winner! I couldn't bear biting my nails anymore. So, I went and bought one using your promo code! What a great deal!!

(If I had won, my sister would have been screaming and dancing and well you get the picture...)

But, I can't wait to slap a Welcome on my front door!

Thanks for all of your great ideas...waiting to make them reality over here!

Janae said...

My Bathroom!!! I have 3 glass jars and 4 small frames in my bathroom that need vinyl ("1" "2" "3" for the jars & "B" "A" "T" "H" for the Frames). I hope I win!!!! :)

Angie K. said...

I LOVE your blog! What a sweet offer! If you pick me...I'm getting ready to paint my kitchen canister set. I would love a set of labels for them: Sugar, Flour, Tea and just a cute little bird for the 4th cannister since I stuff random things in it.

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

ooo ooo ooo yes! I'd love a frosted cut out of the numbers 3, 0, and 2.

302 is our house address and 3-20 is our wedding anniversary (which is coming up SOON) so it would mean a lot to us to win ::wink wink nudge nudge::

: )

anne said...

I have really been wanting to put a long sign above my tv that says "It's a WONDERFUL life".

Lauren F. said...

So jealous of the winner! I would love vinyl cut out labels for the three canisters in my pantry-- Flour, Sugar and Baking Mix. Pick me, Pick me!!! (pretty please with a cherry on top!)

Sweeter Hours said...

THANK YOU!!!! I am literally jumping up and down!

Amelia said...

I'm totally jealous! My dream project right now is vinyl letters to go on the banner I'm making for my daughter's first birthday party. I've already got the banner all figured out and the font I want to do the letters in, but doing it by hand with an exacto knife is more than a little daunting. Thanks for hosting these giveaways, I just wish I could've been the "big" winner ;)

Katie Bell said...

Remember that one time you and I were painting our kitchens a similar color green...we're like kindred spirits, except I won't be having granite counter tops in the near future. BOO. Anyway, I have this little dormer window and I'm going to turn it into a reading nook, so I thought it would be oh.so.fun. to put the commanding words READ on the window....totally do-able, right?

MessyMissy said...

I've never worked with vinyl.......*violins playing*......
:-)

Lacey said...

Congrats to the winner!! enjoy you prize :D

My "dream" project right now would be some vinyl for my chalkboard closet doors - to JAZZ them up a little bit!

Ashley said...

Congrats to the winner! Thanks for doing the vinyl giveaway! :) My dream project would be for my breakfast area... The word "EAT" spelled out in frames, so I would need individual letters of E, A, and T for the little frames. :) Thanks again. :)

Katie said...

What an awesome idea!! Thanks for the opportunity! I have a big 3'x4' mirror frame I bought not too long ago! I'm going to paint it and put a piece of metal painted with chalkboard paint in it. I'd use the sillhouette to make a blank 2'x2' white calender template. All of my numbers will be magnetic so I can rearrange them appropriately each month. I'm going to make a magnetic header for each month as well (Jan, Feb, etc..) I'll write any notes or important dates in chalk, then switch it all out each month!! I'm going to hang it above my desk! Thanks again!

Megan said...

You are SO sweet!! I have been wanting to put a bible verse over our bed. I want to put "I have found the one my soul loves." Song of Solomon 3:4.

Christina said...

oh man I wanted to win that so bad!!

Oh well :)

I would love simple "Welcome" vinyl for a project I'm planning :)

Thank you...you're so sweet to offer this chance!! :)

n.davis said...

sounds cheesy, but i just want to get my
pantry organized. like super duper organized.
little words such as flour, sugar, pasta, etc..
I think that with a clean pantry and better
organizing system i'd be more excited to plan out
meals, organize grocery lists, and get my food storage
organized. organization gets me super excited and motivated. haha.

Holly Austin said...

When I saw that "Holly" had won, I had to do some serious squinting to make sure it wasn't me. LOL!!

I would love to have a "Welcome" vinyl for my back door :)

Leigh said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog link...how kind of you. Such a generous offer to follow up with too!

I'm also one that needs to organize my pantry...flour, sugar, oatmeal, rice, bran....you get the gist. I'm so disorganized, I can't even get to all the DIY stuff I'm wanting to do!! LOL.

I want to number my stairs...my son (18 months) and I count them as we walk up...the hubby would NOT be happy if I painted them since we just had our house built and paid extra for nice hardwood:-)

lk said...

My project would be a cute laundry room sign.

Irma's Rose Cottage said...

Cograts to the winner!
Would like "Who's the Fairest of them all" for my mirror in the guest bedroom.

Irma :)

Shahny said...

Oh how sweet!! I've had this project in mind for a very long time! I'll hang up pictures of my family and my hubby's family with us in the middle and the saying "all because two people fell in love"

Heidi V said...

I would love to have our address for our main door. We live on a corner lot and our address is on our official front door but that is not the door we use which ends up being very confusing for everyone!

Valerie said...

Hi! Just wanted to thank you for posting this offer! My husband & mother went in half and ordered a Silhouette for my birthday with this offer code!! I'm so excited!! Thanks again!

Angel said...

What a nice offer! My dream small project would be iron-on cut out of "middle sister" for my middle daughter. Lots of big sister and little sister shirts out there. Middle sisters....not so much. Thanks! I wish I had the money to splurge on the deal but I'll have to hold off. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Val said...

Thanks for the generous second-chance! I'd love to have a part of a Johnny Cash song on my bedroom wall "As sure as night is dark and day is light I keep you on my mind both day and night" so my hubby always remembers how much I heart him :)

DiSailsToo said...

How nice of you! My dream project right now are vinyl letters for a plate to go on my master bedroom picture wall saying, "you must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you" in black, except for "love" in red. It's the perfect project to finish up my space!

simplelife said...

Wow- what a great giveaway! I would love to be able to put "be nice or go away" on our glass side door-
Dawn

Beth said...

My motto for the year is "Do what matters most". I would love to have that saying in vinyl...I'm imagining it placed over fabric and then framed.

How generous of you to think of those of us without the Silhouette. Thanks.

Linh C. said...

Thanks for offering the cut-outs.

I really like the look of frosted glass, so maybe a fleur de lis or a fancy uppercase 'C' would be awesome!
