Hello and Welcome to my website, Words & Wisdom Custom Vinyl Lettering. As you can see I am currently doing this in a Blog format. If things go the way I plan eventually I will work my way up to larger website with more bells and whistles than a blog has to offer. My goal is to create custom vinyl creations for you to enjoy. Whether it is in your own home or for a gift for some one special. Creativity is a passion of mine and I hope to share that with you! Check back often as I hope to have a gallery full of great ideas to share with you in hopes of helping you create that perfect something. Thank you for visiting!

Wash, Brush, Floss & Flush-Bathroom Vinyl Decor

This is the quote I did for a client recently that inspired me to decorate my own bathroom. The font is Digs My Hart and the vinyl is brown and light blue.
Looks great!

Photo Collage Wall Quote

Here is another wall quote I did for a client. The quote is one I have done before but this time we spruced it up a bit and added the word family above it.

And then here is a close up.
It was done in Black vinyl and the fonts are Black Jack (Family) and Bookman Old Style (quote).

What a great touch to a fun staircase photo collage.

Bathroom Vinyl Decor

While working on a bathroom sign for a client I felt the urge to decorate my kids' bathroom with some fun vinyl.
I created these little water splashes and decided that "Splish Splash!" would be the most appropriate saying to match the decor and the fun splashes.
The words are both 6 1/2 inches tall and the first one is 14 1/2 inches long and the 2nd is 16 3/4" inches long. I did the words in Apple Green vinyl and then the splashes were done in light blue. The font is called Curlz. It makes the room so fun now and it looks fun against the ocean shower curtain!

Here's a close up.

Boy Rooms Vinyl Quotes

I am so excited to show you these next two projects I just did. They are so fun and cute in their own ways. The first one is one that my own boys were so jealous that it was going to someone else and not going on their own bedroom door. I'll just let the picture do the talking.

How cute is that??? I was so excited to find a Star Wars font. It looks great and you can definitely tell that it gets the point across. So Fun!

Now this next one I just finished putting up in my friend's nursery last night.(hence the not so great pictures because of it being dark out) They are expecting their first baby any day now and this was the finishing touch for their little new little guy's nursery.
They did a horse theme but not necessarily a cowboy themed room. Everything is centered around the wooden horse by the crib that was the new Dad's when he was a child. Anyway, here's the quote:

Can't you just picture a little boy riding a rocking horse and having the time of his life? The quote comes from this Song. I had never heard it before but now that I've read all the words I think it is so cute!

The sign was done in Brown vinyl and the font is called Hoedown. I tweaked it some from the original font. The capital letters aren't normally as tall and skinny. But I think this way looks great!

Here's a closer shot of the quote itself.

Now the nursery is all ready so now that baby needs to hurry up and get here! :)

Welcome Signs

Here are a couple more Welcome Signs to add to my ever growing gallery! These have really taken off and I love seeing them on people's doors.
This first one is exactly like this one I did a couple months back; but this time it was done in Black Vinyl to go against a white door. You can see how they are the same, yet at the same time also different. I love seeing everyone's wreaths as well. All so pretty!

And then here is another one I did recently for my neighbor. This is a great one because it's done in a block font rather than a script font. This font is called Will & Grace. And yes, if you remember, it is the same font that was used for the title of the TV Show Will & Grace. So Fun!

Here's a close up of it as well. I love how the vowels are done in lowercase and italicized. Gives a great contrast don't you think?

And the Winner Is...

Well, I was hoping to get this up earlier this morning but instead I spent all morning in the Dentist's office getting a cavity filled! So here I am now back with a numb left side of my face. Hopefully it will wear off soon because it's getting pretty annoying! :)

Anyway, I am so excited about the response I got for my first official give away since creating my little ol' blog. I thought I would get maybe 20 comments total and that was with everyone posting more than one comment! But no! I had a wonderful 82 comments! Every single one of you that left a comment are so AWESOME!!! Thank you so much for the kind words and such they have really touched me! It has been fun doing vinyl and I'm excited to see so many of you that have showed an interest in my blog. I did read every single comment and have gone through and counted up all of the entries. Some of you only commented once but did all three things so I'm still going to count you because it's pretty awesome that you did all three things so I think it's only fair that you get all three chances. So the grand total number of entries was 85!

So without further ado, I'll turn things over to random.org and let them determine the winner in their oh so scientific fashion!

And the Winner is....


Yay Kristi! Congratulations! I'm excited to work with you and see what you come up with! I'm excited!

Now, like I said yesterday, I decided to throw in a couple extra goodies for you all since you have all been so nice to me so I decided that I would do two more drawings! So the 2nd drawing is for $10 in free vinyl from yours truly and that winner is...

YAY Lynsey! Can't wait to see what you come up with...maybe something for that new baby coming?;)
And then finally another drawing. One of my biggest sellers since I started has been Welcome signs so I decided to go ahead and give a Welcome sign away as well. It can be in the font and color of your choice. We'll work to find what fits best with your own personal style and the facade of your home. That winner is...

Congrats Erin! Can't wait to see your new Welcome sign!
If you ladies could please email me at wordsandwisdomvinyl@gmail.com we'll get things all worked out for your order and get things going for you! I can't wait to work with all three of you!
Now, don't fret, those of you that didn't win are all still winner IMO (kind of cheesy I know!) but hey, can't let you all leave empty handed so I'm giving you a little something too! If you did not win one of the three above prizes and you want some vinyl email me and I'll give you a discount. My normal vinyl price is $0.08 per square inch but I'll give all of you a chance to fill an order and the price will be only $0.05 per square inch. So if you are interested in taking advantage of that offer shoot me an email with your order and I'll get going on that for you as well!
Thank You all for participating and I'll definitely have to do another give away again in the near future. My business's one year anniversary is coming up in the middle of November so you might want to check back in then to see if I have something else up my sleeves then. (hint, hint!);)
Congratulations again to the winners!
