Real Witch without Coffee!!!!

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your Weekend??
Mine was wonderful! Today just so happens
to be My 25th Wedding Anniversary!!
So, my Hubby & I went out and spent some
quality time together over the weekend - 
(Since I have to work today) 😉

We don't do anything fancy for our Anniversary -

We just take a day and spend it together -
We tend to go Shopping together, hang out
grab Breakfast & Dinner while out -
It's just our day to connect without anyone else....

Simple? YES! But I like Simple! It's totally MEEE!

Any who.... I also wanted to share a Super
FUN Home Decor Project I made! EEK! It's soooo CA-UUTE!!!

I Sooooo LOOOVE the way this turned out!! It's ADORABLE!! EEK!
Don't ya think???

Okay.... so I found the Plain Wooden Coffin at Joann's Craft
Store Last year on Clearance - So, this year I went ahead and
spray painted it with Dark Gray Spray paint first -
Then I lightly sprayed it with some Black Spray paint -
I LOVE the effect that came out from doing that -
It was just something I wanted to try - hoping it would give it
a 2 tone look - and I was right! LOL Who Knew? Not Me ---
I figured if it didn't turn out, I would try another coat of gray
over the black... but I didn't have too! tehehehe

Once it was dry (I waited a day or 2) - I found this super
CUTE Saying in the Silhouette Online Store and thought
this would be so fun to place in my coffin -

I LOVE Halloween... But I love Happy, cute things
Not the scary, creepy things... that's NOT ME!

Any way... I measured my Coffin - then found an SVG coffin similar
to mine in my Silhouette Files,  so I placed it on my
designer Mat in the program and then put in
the size I just measured - 
This way I could figure out how to place 
the sentiment in my coffin correctly -

Then I found this adorable sentiment and
  resized it to fit in my coffin - I thought the sentiment was
adorable, but kind of plain on my coffin, so
I found a spider web border in my Silhouette
files and resized it.... placed it where I thought
some webs should go... and I was ready to cut everything
out with some Assorted Matte Vinyl from Craft Vinyl

The saying did not have the Steam coming from
the coffee cup - I added that, because it looked better!
So, the steam came from a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons
SVG File called (Java a Great Day)

Anyway - I hope you like it - It looks adorable hanging
on my Kitchen wall!!

Thanks for stopping by!
