The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Have I ever told you that I love to bake and cook? Well, if I haven’t, you know now.
A while back I bought a few glass canisters to hold the flour, sugar and salt that I’m constantly using. At the time, I thought the smaller canisters would work. But after using them for a while, I find that I’m consistently refilling them. It was definitely time for a bigger set.
So off to Target I went, gift card in hand, and grabbed two of the these.
Yep, they’re big. At first I was a little bit worried that they were too big and that they would make the counter top seem smaller. But, after I filled each canister, it was love at first sight. They’re a brick house! (Now go back and reread that last sentence, but this time insert your singing voice. BOOM!) Ha, ha!
I’m overly excited about not having to fill these suckers each time I decide to bake something new!
And because I am so in love with them, and just happened to get a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, I thought they would be a great first project to jazz up. Little did I know that my Silhouette and I would need to spend a considerable amount of time together before we could successfully accomplish a project. As much as I like to scream, shout and roll around on the ground in frustration, I think my time could be better spent doing something else.
Just keepin’ it real.
Needless to say, the vinyl on the canisters TOTALLY didn’t come out perfect. But you know what? I’m not going to spend anymore of my time and energy dwelling on the fact that the words are a little crooked and that the vinyl tore in more places than I care to admit. What it’s really about is the fact that every time I look at those lovely canisters I see a scriptive font that somehow reminds me of my grandmothers handwriting. And that’s much more important than the imperfections that are somewhat glaring.
And just for the record, once my Silhouette and I decide to become friends again, and are on speaking terms, I will probably decide to re-do this project. I’ll let you know when that happens.
In the mean time, how do you like my crooked font?
