just so quote a bowl

so. sometimes i can be a little tardy

birthday cards/presents,

going to bed

getting out of bed (especially if running is involved)

or setting up a craft blog . . .

well.  i just made a present for my mother-in-law.

her birthday was in may.

it's september.

i hope she knows we love her, regardless.

here are the details . . .
step one
i found this beautiful bowl @ target for $19

step two
 picking a quote to put on the bowl.
(the hardest part for me)

i spent a good chunk of time searching
for a suitable quote.

i was originally thinking something along the lines of eating/home/family.

but nothing was speaking to me.

and then i found the ONE  . . .

step three
cut out the vinyl
step four
*dotty tip*
i used an extra large rubber band to mark a straight line around the bowl.

then, i penciled along the rubber band and applied the vinyl.

and . . .

here it is.

the full quote is:
"Old people shouldn't eat health food, they need all the preservatives they can get."

i was thrilled to hear it's already been used.

drum roll please.

i'm linking to my first parties with this post.

wish me luck, i'd love any and all feedback.

You have a craft blog! Does that mean you'll post more often? :)
