Hi and happy Friday! What has made you smile this week? I’m smiling from ear to ear as I type this since I finally had a chance to play with my Silhouette and the Dear Lizzy Doilies late last night — yay!

I’ve had this plan kicking around up in my noggin for over a month now, on a day much like today when I purchased the papers to make the doilies — the sun keeps popping in and out, making photos a little tricky.  But I’m too excited to wait for the sun to come out to show you!

I even made a little doily kit for my friend Mon at weiwabo.  I cut some doilies, put them in a vellum envelope, tied on a tag and string and ta dah!  Sure hope she likes it!  (And hope she doesn’t see this post before she gets it — told ya I was too excited to wait to post, ha ha.)

I think it’s incredible that we can live in a time when we can own a machine like the Silhouette that can cut out something so intricate as these doilies.  Isn’t technology amazing?  AND!  Want to win one?  Well then, you’ll want to click on over and enter the giveaway that Danni is having over at oh hello freind!

Do you have any fun plans this weekend?  I’m hoping to finally have a chance to play with the cutest little donut maker that a friend sent me.  YUM.  And stamp some donuts, too.

Hope you get a chance to do something you’ve been wanting to,

    1. Hi Ashlee! It is yarn that I got back in high school for 59 cents (sorry!). There’s a gray Divine Twine that’s pretty similar that you can use instead tho! I want some! :)
