Shrinky-Dink Key chain

So my daughter needs a USB drive for school and we needed a fast way for her to find it if she misplaces it or it gets mixed with other kids drives. So, she asked me to make her a keychain using one of the Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts. We made a couple of different ones, but here is the winner...Flirty Edward. It is stamped on white shrink plastic with Jet Black Staz-On and colored with Sharpie markers. They are not my first choice, but they are durable. Thanks for looking! April

Shower Caddy

My preteen couldn't figure out where all her shower products kept disappearing to...until she found out her brothers were using it for fingerpaint in the tub....yeah. So back to school things are cropping up at Walmart and I found this cute pink shower caddy for $3. I figured she can cart it back to her room and hide her favorite goodies from her "little bothers" as she calls them. I pulled out the Cricut and vinyl for a little personalization. The "M" is cut at 2 inches from Jasmine font and the flourish is from Ashlyn's Alphabet and cut at 1 inch. Anyway, to cut vinyl, you set your blade on 6, then pressure on 2. Speed of cut depends on the complexity of the design. The letter I cut on speed 5, but the flourish I cut at 3. Simple but cute. Thanks for looking! April
