Happy Friday! I’m interrupting BA Friday to join in on my friend Beckie’s state pride tour! I’m participating on the final day, so be sure to go back and check all the other states. They’re incredible, I tell ya.
I’ve shown off my beautiful state of Michigan before, and I consider myself lucky to live in one of the most beautiful parts of it. Michigan is known as “The Mitten State” ’cause…you know…it looks like a mitten. And since we see our fair share of snow each year, it’s only fitting. Get it? Fitting? Someone stop me.
Because I did the first part at night and because I’m an airhead after 10pm, I forgot to take a picture of it. Basically, grab a scrap piece of wood from your garage and put some stain on it. I used a paper towel to do that. Because I’m fancy.
The next part is always my favorite. If you have a Silhouette machine or some other vinyl cutter, you’re in luck. If not, you’ll need to get fancy with the scissors.
I love playing around with the different images and figuring out the layout I want to use. Luckily, Silhouette offers all the fonts I need and plenty of graphics–yes, even Michigan.
There’s always that population of people clawing their way out of this state and the harsh winters, but I have never wanted to be anywhere else! It’s a beautiful place to live, and it’s full of good people. So yes, home really is where the mitten is.
