Idle Hands

I have been so busy this week. On Monday, I had a mammogram to check out a lump the doctor found over the holidays, as well as a dentist and doctor visit. I went back to the Breast Center on Wednesday for an ultrasound. The lump turned out to be basically a 9mm blocked milk duct. (haven’t breast fed in 7 years!)

Work has also been CRAZY with lots of re-evaluations and reviews too.

To deal with the stress, I have been coming home and crafting in the evenings. Just small little projects, but it has helped me keep my sanity!

I will be sharing my projects over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

For gifts, I have been decorating 24oz double walled tumblers. These were found at Wal-Mart for less than $4 a piece. Each cup was thoughtfully designed using my Silhouette and outdoor vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.  Love this vinyl… I bought 24inch sheets for less than $2 each. It’s waterproof, like as in throw it on the top rack dishwasher proof!!!!

On the back side, each cup is personalized. I had so much fun with these! Cups were made for co-workers, friends, parents, kids, and Mr. Whimsy. How fun!

Here is a picture of my inspiration from Tervis. For the copywrited cups, they are the way to go, but you can’t beat making your own for less than a 1/3 of the price!

Come back soon and see what else I have been doing! Y’all have a great week!

Make it great, or not, the choice is yours!

Love, Whyt

  1. Top rack dishwasher safe??!! WOW! These are adorable, I'm so impressed. Love the colors.

    1. We have been using them for about a month and they still look great!

  2. Darling glasses and glad that your exam went well (but scary, I know. I, myself am the wife of a terminally ill cancer hub)

    Thanks for sharing :D

    1. It was scary, especially right before my 40th bday.... Thanks for your sweet comment!

  3. hmmm..this sure is a very cute copy cat! I am glad your mammo turned out OK...I get recalled year after year. I would say this challenge does not fall under my guidelines, because it is suppose to be from a magazine..but Walmart does have a circular add and perhaps they are in there and it is OK LOL! I loved your project. Enjoy the party.

    1. I updated my post and added a link to my catalog inspiration. :-)I always enjoy your parties! Thanks Debbie!

  4. Debbiedoo is such a gracious host. Besides all that, she is extra sweet.

    Cute project....and thrilled your mammo is ok.

  5. These are super sweet! Great news about the lump as well xx

  6. Darling idea! I bet anyone who gets these would love them!


    P.S. I'm following you now... hope you will come by and say hi!


Your sweet comments are greatly appreciated!
