For this project I used some black card stock & a white Silhouette Sketch pen. I found this image in the Silhouette online store. TIP: I wanted this to fit a 5x7 frame. So I made a 5 inch by 7 inch box on the screen & then I knew just what size to make my image.  :)

  23. my husband is renovating our entire ENTIRE downstairs. Living room, dining room, office, homeschool room, guest half bath and my sewing studio. when those rooms are done, we start the kitchen. When it's all done, before ANY SINGLE THING goes back into the house, it will have a place.

    and that place will be labeled.
