nothing like the last minute

on February 21, 2013

nothing like waiting til the last minute to decide to enter something…because i only have a little more than an hour left to actually enter a contest i wasn’t originally going to enter, but something in my mind decided to give it a shot, so here goes nothing!

last week i decided to make a wall hanging for our entry way hallway, it was based on something i had seen on pinterest. a few months ago i came across a wall hanging (at least i think that’s what it was, could’ve been a poster, i couldn’t really tell…anywho) that had a list of major cities & i thought it would be neat to have something that was more personal to my family, that had the names of cities that meant something to us…not just random big cities.

so once my silhouette finally arrived & i (quickly) discovered my love for vinyl i decided it was time to make our own list of cities wall-hanging…and i did…and it was a slight pain in my butt, taking a bit longer to make than i had thought it would, but i think it turned out well & i love it.

ok, so the first 2 cities are where the hubby & i were born, the next 2 are where our first apartment & first home were, the next 2 are where the kiddos were born, & the last one is where we live now. hubby was a little disappointed that i didn’t put new orleans or london on there, so i guess i need to make a smaller one for him that has the name of cities that he’s lived in.

it’s made from a 1″x12″ that i cut to 34″ & stained. i used my silhouette portrait to cut the letters out of vinyl & stuck them on using contact paper as the transfer tape. i really do love how it turned out…especially since it was my first “vinyl on wood” project.

it hangs proudly in our entry way and nearly completes the gallery-wall i’m trying to create…it still need a few more little things before i really call it complete, but it’s gettin’ there!

so now, i’m off to enter the contest!

here’s a couple more pics though, before i go!
