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!

Do you Pin(terest)?

I don't know about the rest of you, but my newest addiction is PINTEREST! It's so fun to pin all sorts of cute ideas for your home or a new recipe or two. I must admit though, I find myself pinning a lot and trying hardly any of it! But then again, most of my pinning takes place late at night or while I'm feeding my baby. But it's still fun and so addicting!

Because of Pinterest, I've had customers contact me about projects they want to do! Of course I'm more than happy to help out! Here's just one cute sample of a simple sign I did for a customer all because of Pinterest!

Isn't that cute? So if you see a project on Pinterest that involves vinyl lettering send me an email and we'll get working on it! There are lots of great ideas out there for inexpensive Christmas gifts...HINT, HINT! :)

Also, if you want to follow me on Pinterest here are my boards. I've got some cute vinyl ideas that I need to get working on for myself but I've also got lots of other fun crafty ideas and also lots of yummy recipes that I need to try as well. So follow my boards and happy pinning!

Santa's Cookie Plate

Need a cute simple gift for your Neighbors, teachers, co-workers, or anyone for the Holidays? How about a cute plate? Just buy a simple white plate (this one is from Target) and then you can add the vinyl ($5.00) to the plate. Simple and easy project and you have a cute present to mark off your Christmas list! And best of all it can be done for under $10.00! Can also be done in other colors or two toned (words one color Santa another color)

Welcome Blocks

I've had this project for a while and don't know why I've never posted it. Oh well, now is as good of time as ever I guess! I did these a couple years ago at church for a Super Saturday craft project. It was a big hit. The best part of these blocks is that they can be part of your decor all year long and they can be changed to fit the different seasons and holidays.

There are 7 blocks and each side has a different letter. Some letters are repeated but you are able to make a whole list of words that fit the whole year.

Here's a list of the some of the words it can make:

I sell these in kits (vinyl only) For $15 for one kit and $12 for 5 or more kits. Each kit includes the vinyl for each block, assembly instructions so you can make sure the right letters get on the right blocks, and a craft stick for each kit to apply your vinyl.

These are fun for girls craft nights, super Saturdays and also perfect for Christmas gifts as well.

Here's some more pictures of the different words:

 And look, they can even spell a select few names. :) You may even be able to spell your last name too!

Pantry Makeover

Have a boring pantry like everyone else? Well, you can spruce it up with some fun vinyl.
Decorate the backs of your wall and label jars and containers. Makes everything so pretty. And who wouldn't want to cook when you have a cute pantry?

Labels and Personalizing

When you go to a big event or park do you have a way to keep your stuff different from everyone else? I'm sure we've all done the sharpie trick on more than one occasion but why not make something a little more permanent and use vinyl to mark your stuff?

Now you'll always know which cooler is yours when you are at the park, pool, beach, or where ever. If you're leery about having your last name on something then you can easily do some sort of flower or other fun design as well.

Do you have the same smart phone as everyone else? Why not personalize it with a pretty bunch of flowers...

Or how about your boring ol' water bottle? Everyone else has the same one but now yours is easier to keep track of.

Also, this could be a fun inexpensive teachers gift for the up coming holidays as well. The water bottle is $5.00 at Target and then $3.00 for the vinyl. Now your favorite teacher can have a cute water bottle oh her desk.

Here's another spin on personalization. Need some organizing done in your home? How about bins for each child, they can put their shoes, bags, sports equipment, etc. in their own bins.

Or here's a fun bench with labels for all of those extra things like hats and gloves and even your towels and water toys in the summertime. (It's been snowing here lately so I've been longing for the warm weather again if you can't tell!)

Personalizing can be anything from your name to a cute phrase to a design. Let your creativity go wild.
