With her Silhouette cutting tool in hand, Wendy has become a vinyl decal pro. She created this beautiful fall wall hanging to adorn her newly remodeled three season porch. We’re sure many fall evenings will be spent there with a book and a cup of tea. Beautiful job Wendy, your design truly captures the essence of fall.
The best part is that the vinyl stickers can be peeled off each season to make room for a new design! Read more about Wendy’s design.
Creative mama Kim writes at Shop with Me Mama to help deal-savvy moms across the country save money for their family. When faced with this challenge she let her 5 year old daughter get in on the designing action. Here’s what she had to say:
“She was soooo excited when I told her to go create something awesome! She is only 5 years old, so this was so neat for her. I loved watching her face and expressions when she was creating her roller shade. This roller shade will be a keepsake for years to come, because my daughter designed it!”
Adorable job Kim and Presley! We love that you drew Blinds.com as a tiki hut on the beach. We wish we could wiggle our toes in the sand while we worked every day! See more from Kim in her privacy window coverings review, and at Shop With Me Mama.
Review blogger Leanne always has her camera in hand to snap shots of everything from what’s on the dinner table, to her latest product up for review. The photobug used our roller shade for, what else – a mobile photo studio. The white shade makes for the perfect backdrop indoors or out, and it’s small enough to roll up and carry anywhere!

Janel shares her adorable vintage, crafty style with the world at Nellie Bellie. She had the genius idea to make her roller shade into a vintage-inspired map.

As a kid, wouldn’t you love to design your own window coverings? April let her little miss have at it to create a mixed media design to hang in her room. Because the frugally green family has recently moved to the beach, the kindergartner collected shells from right outside for her beach scene.
Why not allow your kiddo to relive summer memories with an art project? Find more family fun and green living tips at Frugally Green Mom.
