pick your plum

Have you ever heard of Pick Your Plum? OMG...awesome site!! They have one deal every day for incredibly cheap. Back in October (I think), they had a great thing of vinyl for $3.95 or something like that. Now, when you get the items, it's generally something crafty that you have to put together or that you need something else to go with it. Make sure you sign up and you'll get their daily email of what is the deal of the day!

So...I turned the vinyl into these..

I didn't much care for that red flower (I did it on my cricut), so it did come off and I put another flower there.

I love how they turned out. I was able to get remnants of wood at Menards for $1.69 and sanded them, found some $2.99 spray paint at Hobby Lobby to use and then put the words on. I actually didn't use all the words they gave me, so I still have some left. And I have another board that I don't have a pic of because I was an idiot and put "faithful" on there twice!!

These were all Christmas gifts for my mom, aunt, and SIL (I kept one for myself, too!). I know they all loved them!

LIZ!!! You made my day!! I am so excited to have you join the party!! I LOVE meeting other blogger fans!! I'm so in love with your vinyl-- I am wanting to make something similiar to that but keep holding out hope that I'll be able to get a silhouette or something to make my letters with. You did so good!! What else have you gotten from them?
