Honda Pilot

As most of you know, circumstances in December pushed us to buying a new vehicle.

We ended up getting a 2008 Honda Pilot and we LOVE it.

Chris is excited we were able to get his personalized plates again!

I also love the nurf bars along the bottom.

Having a SUV has been great for toting stuff around and we've already used it for that purpose many times. It came with this rubber tray. There's actually a row of seats that completely fold down under the tray. That was one huge plus with the Pilot that the back row folds completely down flushed with floor.

Here's the middle row of seats. This row actually moves forward and backward a little like the front seats do. I'd never seen that before!

Sun roof!

Looove the leather. (Thank goodness for the seat heaters though! Especially lately..)

Decked out with GPS, back up camera, XM radio, 6 CD changer.

I took these pictures after we washed the car this weekend when the weather was GORGEOUS! ....before this second arctic blast! Scout was our helper... :) I love him!

silhouette sd machine

Meet my Silhouette.
We've been together now since Christmas.
I LOVE it!

If you aren't familiar with a Silhouette, it's a digital cutting tool similar to a Cricut. It connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade.

There are many options with the Silhouette. (pics from Silhouette's website)

making cards
scrapbook pages
etched glass (i LOVE this!)
temporary tattoos

vinyl decor (my personal favorite)
I've played around with it some and these are my creations, thus far.
I did try to make a card. It turned out awful. But I attribute it to the adhesive I used that HAD to be almost 5 years old.

Here are my canisters I dressed up this morning. I'm going to add "candy" or "treats" to the one with M&M's...I just couldn't make up my mind when I printed the others out.

Maroon Weekly has moved into a new office, so I got to dress up the door and Chris' desk.

Here is the yoshi/baby mario I made for Chris' NEW macbook pro!

I've gotten several custom orders laptop vinyl saying/logos. I'm going to do mine too, but I haven't decided for sure what word or phrase I want it to say. I also have some super ideas of stuff I want to make and give as gifts.

I just put in an order for some more vinyl in a bunch of different colors!!!
I even ordered some heat transfer vinyl that can go on clothes/fabric.

It's exciting (and a little overwhelming) all the awesome stuff the silhouette can do.

If you have any requests for a vinyl cut, let me know! I'm sure we can work out something. ;)
