Giveaway weekend!


I am SO excited about this weekend’s giveaway! If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know how much I love vinyl wall art -- I think it’s a fun, easy, inexpensive way to add a unique look and a touch of whimsy to a room.
Well, my advertiser Single Stone Studios has some fantastic vinyl art you’ll be drooling over! Yippee!
I showed you how I used vinyl from Single Stone Studios in the Bub’s room:

Billy at Single Stone sent me the airplanes, in the specific sizes and colors I asked for AND they when I told them I wanted little “puffs” of smoke, they knew exactly what was in my head! They custom made the puffs that come out from behind the plane.  Adorable, eh?
I felt like the sign still needed a little somethin’ more…so I got one more little plane in yellow to tie in all of the colors in the room. Just to show you how easy it is to use this stuff, I took some pics of the “installation” process.
First of all, no matter what the size of the vinyl (but especially if it’s large!) – I cut out the design so it’s easier to work with:

I use a pan scraper to rub the vinyl, but you can use anything with a hard edge – credit card, whatever:
You want to rub the vinyl to ensure it adheres to the sticky paper. When you pull the papers apart, you’ll be left with the vinyl exposed:

If the vinyl doesn’t come off on the sticky paper on it’s own, you can help it along with your fingernail. :)
Then place it where you want it (I use a level on the wall for larger items) and rub it again with the scraper to make sure it sticks to the surface:

Peel away the paper, and yer done!:

TOO cute!! (Notice the creative cropping so you don’t see the pile of toys on the floor?)  :)
I’m not just saying this peeps – Single Stone Studios has some of the most innovative, unique, adorable vinyl art I’ve seen! Just wait!
This is just stunning. STUNNING:

You know that wall space above your sofa? The huge space you never know what to do with? THIS is what you can do with it. This works. :)
Can’t have a real chandy in a room? How about one on the wall?

I love that gray tone. Swoon!
How about adding some architecture where there is none?

Without the $1000 fee from a contractor.  ;)
How totally fun is this for a media room or a basement?:

HOW COOL! Or how cute would one of these be next to a little kid’s stage in a play area, using their first name? I wish they had this stuff when I was a kid!
What I love about vinyl is you can paint mdf, wood, whatever, install it on there, maybe frame it out and then it truly becomes art you can take with you anywhere. And that makes it a great option for renters!
I LOVE their selection of monograms, especially this one!:

Gorgeous!
You bird lovahs out there will have a conniption when you see some of these:
bird wire birds
winterowl
Gah, I’m becoming such a sucker for owls! Adorable!
Of course the selection for kid’s rooms is amazing:

And you can always purchase phrases as well! I love this one for a kid’s space:
Seuss How perfectly perfect for a teen’s room too. :) I’m determined to find a spot for that one!
And don’t yell at me -- I know it’s not even June! I KNOW. But seriously, I gasped when I saw this one:

Can you blame me? Sigh.
Single Stone Studios offers 40 different colors to pick from for your vinyl, in matte or gloss finish (love that!) and they even offer the etched glass vinyl! Awesome!
The folks at Single Stone are graciously giving one of YOU a $50 gift card to use as you wish at their shop!
You know the drill! For your first entry, leave a comment here. For a second chance to win, visit the Single Stone Studios site, pick out a favorite item, then come back here and leave a comment telling us what it is.

**I want to say a special thanks to the men and women who are serving, have served, or are about to serve (we know a recent high school grad who is one of them!) our country. AND a big thank you to the families who support them.
I cannot thank you enough for the sacrifices you all make to protect this great nation.
God bless you!
