Leprechaun Pot of Gold Treasure Hunt

For Your Saint Patrick's Day party this year, you could do a Treasure Hunt!


This kit comes with the 23"x6" Leprechaun message and 16 sets of Leprechaun footprints (32 total)! And, the amazing thing about vinyl is you can put it on the ground, couch, ceiling, anywhere you want!


You kids will have so much fun following these footprints they won't need any parental help! My favorite thing about this activity was that even the tiny kids (18 and 24 months) were able to follow the footprints on their own!


Success!!! Also, you could use popcorn in your pot of gold instead of chocolate gold coins, because we all know how expensive those gold coins are! And what kid doesn't LOVE popcorn?


The St. Patrick's Day Party Activity- Treasure Hunk Kit can be found here at my Etsy shop.

Valentines Words of Love

I've been thinking all month of something fun you can do for your special someone for Valentines Day and here is what I came up with...

Words of Love to place around your home!

I designed a package with enough words/sayings to cover an entire home and make them feel loved all day!


The best part about vinyl is you can put in on almost ANY surface and then just peel it off when you are done with it! And it's weather and waterproof, so you can put it in the shower, and all over your loved ones car!


The package also comes with one CUSTOM SAYING for you to be able to customize a personal message between you and your loved one! For my husband, I made "I love you" in Russian, because he speaks Russian. :)


Here is the list of sayings that come in this package. The dimensions range from 5"x2" to 12"x9".


Here are some fun ideas of ways you can use these decals:
-You're my sugar: place on a plate with a special sweet treat, or on your sugar jar where they will get their morning coffee.

- You make me smile: place near your loved ones favorite picture of yourself

- You turn me on: place near a light switch or on an electronic such as a laptop or tv.

- You light up my life: place near or on a lamp or near a light switch.

- I'll be missing you today, XOXO: place on the door as they leave the house.

- Best Day of my Life: place near a picture of the two of you on your wedding day or another special occasion.

- Good Morning Babe: place on the ceiling so this is the first thing they see when they wake up in the morning!

In order to receive your package by Valentine's Day, you will want to order it by THURSDAY, FEB. 9th. You can order it HERE at my Etsy store for only $20.00.


Vinyl Installation 1

I'm going to be doing a series of blog posts about different techniques for installing vinyl. So, check back to keep yourself informed, then when you are hanging some vinyl of your own, you will be an expert!

Hang it Straight and Aligned

Step 1: fold back a small section of the backing on one of the sides (in this case I did the top). This way you can stick the vinyl to the wall, but still be able to remove it and move it around as needed.


Step 2: Use a level to put against a straight line to make sure it is level. If the vinyl is off a bit, put your level down, hold down one of the ends with your finger, peel the rest off the wall and slightly turn it (whichever way you need to go), attach it to the wall again and check it with the level. Repeat as many times as necessary to get it level.

When attaching make sure you follow my dry application instructions and leave it attached, lift up, peel the backing away, and apply rest of vinyl to the wall in a steady swipe of your hand.

*HINT* If you are hanging a saying or design and have no distinct straight line to follow, make one yourself. Use a ruler and mark with a pencil a straight line on top of the masking. Find some part of the design or saying that is a straight line. If using a saying, follow the bottom of one of the lines (see below). Now you have a guide to go off of. You can also make one going vertically as well to follow.

Step 3: Now what can get really tricky is when you need to attach multiple items that need to be not only level, but level with each other. After attaching your first piece, you will do the same step process with the next pieces on the same horizontal plane.

When checking to see if the second is matching up with the first. You will partially attach it (step 1), and place your level on top of the top straight line of each piece. If it will remain touching and level with both pieces, it is ready to attach.

*ALSO* You may also draw a line on your wall with a pencil to follow. You will simply put your level where you want it, make sure it is level and then draw a line following the top of the level. Now you will only need to line your vinyl top up with the line on the wall.


Step 4: Attach the vinyl by keeping the top attached, peeling the backing away and sticking the vinyl down to the wall with a steady swipe of the hand.


Step 5: If you are attaching your next piece on top and want the sides lined up instead of the tops. You will follow make a line straight up from the bottom one with your level like listed in the end of Step 3. You will line up your vinyl (this time my backing is peeled slightly away on the side of the vinyl so that it will stick to the wall. Make sure it is level and as high/low as you would like it.

Step 6: Attach the vinyl by keeping the top attached, peeling the backing away and sticking the vinyl down to the wall with a steady swipe of the hand.


With this particular design shown you will need to do this with 6 different pieces, but depending on your design, you might get to do it a few less :)

Hopefully this helps give you a few ideas on how to make your vinyl straight next time you will be installing it.
