How to make a snowflake shirt

I've pretty much just given up on this week. I was off on Monday for MLK massive snowfall on Tuesday so I didn't make it to work. Wednesday I still couldn't really get out. Today I finally made it to work Wooohoo, but I was swamped.

I spent my unexpected snow days playing with my new Silhouette Cameo. I hadn't really had time to do much but this week with some time on my hands I decided to make Em a snowflake shirt to remember all the snow we've had this winter. I want to share how easy it was.

 I used the glitter heat transfer paper from hobby lobby (cricuit brand because they don't sale Silhouette brand.)

I bought the 2 snow flake design from the 50% off designs. It was only 50 cents.

Load it on your screen. Click un group. reposition where you want. I wanted three snowflakes all in a row so I lined them up and then duplicated the first design (edit duplicate) I moved it to the opposite side of the heart snowflake.

Draw a box around all three snowflakes and then click object group. Then I re sized by grabbing the right bottom.

Pull the plastic off the transfer paper and load onto your mat.
Speed 3
Thickness 33
Blade 6
It printed out just fine and I gently removed it from the mat and placed in on the shirt and ironed it (place something light over it so you don't melt the design. )
 
There ya go completely easy.

Weeping Angel on the shelf

Since Christmas has passed and all the elves on the shelves have gone back to the North Pole to wait until its time to scare little kids into behaving, again. I began to think, what are we suppose to do the rest of the year?

Of course we could teach our children right from wrong, but where is the fun in that? (kidding)

If you are a Dr Who fan (whovian) I have the perfect method for keeping your children behaving (or paralyzed in fear....but same diff)

If you have no idea what I am talking about you can find the episode on Netflix

"Blink" is the tenth episode of the third series of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was first broadcast on 9 June 2007 on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)." (Abbey said 3rd season of the NEW series.) "In the episode, the Doctor—a time travelling alien played by David Tennant—and his companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) are trapped in the past and try to warn a young woman, Sally Sparrow (Carey Mulligan), how to prevent the Weeping Angels from taking control of the TARDIS." Source Wikipedia

I thought it was funny how scared she is of angel statues now (can we say bad mom award). Everyday, We pass a house that has about 5 or 6 in the yard yard. That in itself freaks me out. But the angels freak Abbey out, which cracks me up. (Yeah, totally mom of the year here)  It did get me me thinking we really needed one of these.

Which brings me to this little beauty. Meet the newest member of our house.....Our weeping Angel. I move her from different parts of the house (just like an elf on the shelf) when the children aren't looking. This means they are always on guard and they aren't tempted to play with the Weeping Angel like they were our Elf.
