Here they are ironed-on! I then wanted to add a little bling and used the hot fix tool I got from Michaels.
There are several different kinds of tools available, I got the one that came with free hot fix crystals.
Here you can see my progression, just follow the directions on the hot fix tool's package to ensure you are setting it enough. Also be sure to stay steady, if you slide off of the tool it will leave a little circular burn mark on your item!
Ta-da!! Looks professional right? And I paid less than $10!

Here is a quick home decoration idea. Find 2 birds and hang them on a wall in your home to symbolize "love birds."
I find birdies at thrift stores all the time... they are so charming and have lots of character. Even if they arent cosmetically perfect... that makes them look even better. :)
The color in the master bathroom is called "ethereal mood" by Sherwin Williams. It looks great with white linens.
Then I used my Cricut to cut out the words exactly as I wanted them and placed them where I wanted with starfish.
Then I used a pencil to trace the letters onto the plaque and again put the starfish down just to see how it was coming along.
Then I painted within each outline with a small paintbrush and my new favorite blue color.
After I finished painting I got the idea to outline the words with a sharpie and I love how much better it turned out. I made sure not to glue the starfish on until we got to Jamaica so that they wouldn't break en route in my luggage. I packed a hot glue gun to attach all of the fragile things after arrival.

Another quick post tonight. :)
I stained an old piece of wood then used white acrylic paint to free hand the saying "happy together."
It is above our door, I love it! The handwriting and paint is not perfect but I think it kinda adds personality.
Im going to make another sign soon that says, "relax... you're home now"
P.S. - We just got done painting the house. This color is Sherwin Williams "ethereal mood"

Quick Sunday tip!
Having trouble storing your stud earrings? Use an ice cube tray for earrings, earring backs and rings. So much easier than putting them on those wire mesh boards or throwing them in a box and having to dig to find a matching set. :)
