A New Hobby

Our family celebrated both Christmas and Thanksgiving over the week of Thanksgiving. That means my Christmas tree looks pretty lonely with no Christmas presents under it this year. But it also means I get to play with my Christmas presents earlier this year! My kids gifted me a Silhouette Cameo 4 and I thought I'd share my first project!

Vintage Sled with Vinyl Decal by Thistle Thicket Studio.
I'm not sure I need another hobby, but I can see this will get addictive! I have a lot to learn with it but I was pleased with my first project. This is an old sled that my mom gave me and it had plywood where I imagine it once had a nicer board with a painted logo or design. I decided to dress up the plain plywood by painting it white then applied a vinyl decal that I cut on the Silhouette of a red truck carrying a tree with a Merry Christmas greeting. The weeding was a little tedious on those snowflakes and I learned my eyesight isn't what it used to be (truthfully, I really already knew that). The sled now is part of my patio decor and greets visitors to our home.

What holiday craft projects are you working on this month? I'll share another project I made this week after it is gifted. I'd love for you to share your projects with me!

Happy Crafting!
