Just when you think you're done decorating your house, your sister has a KILLER deal on vinyl, and you just can't stop yourself:

My front door, if you can't see it, it says:
"You are Welcome... but your shoes are not."

The Boys' room. The map goes over the entire wall. Both the map and compass were custom order.
Isn't it AWESOME?!

The plane has nothing to do with the vinyl. Got that at Home Goods. Ignore the dust.
Their room has a "transportation" theme, and the map really completes the look.

The boys bathroom. I have 15 custom "bubbles" all around the room on the walls...

... and mirror.

I also have, on the boys' bathroom mirror, a custom vinyl in an "etching" color. It's awesome. I would post it, but I don't know if I am allowed to post a poem due to copyright laws... Hmm.

Perfectly spaced was awesome to use. Their products applied easily, shipping was FAST (Seriously. Fast.), and customer service was great. As you can see, I got several custom items. They designed quickly, and with each revision, I got an e-mail and was able to make changes as needed. I know it's my sister, but seriously. If my childhood is any indication, favoritism had nothing to do with my service. (Sorry, Sami... had to say it.) Also, pricing was VERY competitive.

So, why should you care about my great deal??

This is also good for you, my loyal readers. In an effort to get more traffic to their site, Perfectly Spaced has authorized me to do a GIVEAWAY!!! The rules:

Send an e-mail to 3 of your friends/family (who may be in the market for vinyl...) and get them to go to the site. Or post about this post on your blog.

Post a comment here, on this post, telling me why you deserve $15.00 in vinyl product, and who you sent information to. (Funny entries are good... I am not above emotional bribery.)

Get to it! As soon as I have enough entries, I will let y'all know who the lucky winner is.

P.S. Everyone is a winner when you get a great product for a low price, even if you don't win... I'm just sayin'.

Dinner Party

If I could live in one era of my choosing, I would definately pick the 1950's. I think that I missed that portal. I love the idea of fancy dinner parties, wearing ironed dresses all day long, T.V. shows with built-in commercials, soda shops, and Rock n' Roll before it was just Rock. Ah. The simplicity of it all. Or perhaps I have been mislead by popular culture and Hollywood.


I decided that it would be fun to time-warp for an evening, and enjoy a nice, quiet, elegant night with friends, complete with "The Newlywed Game".

Boy was I right. This is the life:

I started with hand-made invitations, (which I would share with you, except I managed to blow up yet another computer. (I really don't know what I do to them...)) Erasing the photographic evidence that I had made them. mailed out per ettiquette, 4-5 weeks in advance. Dinner was Italian-themed and four courses.

All-in-all, even with my car dying on me as I was trying to take my baby to the sitter, it was a good night. I don't know that I'll do them frequently, but I do think that I'd like to do another party sometime.

Thanks again to all who came! It was awesome.
