Dress-up your house... and win something too!! {FREE GIVEAWAY}

Don't miss the free Giveaway at the bottom of this post, hosted by: ScribbleitonlineAs many of you know, we just recently bought our first home. I have loved decorating it, and adding some small touches to make it more fun. One of my favorite additions has been vinyl lettering. I know that it has been around for a while, but remember; this is my first house!!!

I love that it is fairly inexpensive, but it can make such a difference to your wall. I have used it on several big walls. I feel like it adds so much character, and I don't have to fill the wall with other stuff. It also makes a statement,yet it is so simple. I have loved using quotes on the wall that help describe our family. Everyone comments on what a fun addition it is, and it helps them get a better sense of who the Swensons are. I have found they are also a great way to share some of our beliefs... notice the picture of my kids with Lead Me, Guide Me, Walk Beside Me. Many friends have asked me how I came up with that line. I love explaining that is comes from my favorite childrens hymn, "I am a Child of God."

You can also order the vinyl and put it on a piece of wood to adorn a book shelf. You can put it on your front door, walls, bath tubs, just about anywhere you can think of. Then when you are done with it, it is easily removed.

When choosing your vinyl lettering, you need to pick a company. Then you can pick your font, color, and what you want it to say.

I just recently stumbled upon a fabulous vinyl company, called Scribbleitonline.

What do I love about it?

* There prices are very comparable to other sites, but there products are unique

*There site is user friendly

*They have unique vinyl unlike any I have ever seen(not just your average quotes for the wall)Like I said, vinyl has been around for a while, but not vinyl like this. This is so COOL!!!

There website is: http://www.scribbleitonline.com/

There blog is: http://scribbleitonline.blogspot.com/

There Etsy is: http://scribbleit.etsy.com/

Here is some of the vinyl on my wish list from Scribble. (Sorry, I had a hard time getting them any bigger) I have a wall that is just waiting for this with our last name. I also love how they have made the silhouettes. The best part about them is they are custom. You send them a picture of your kids profile, and they make it of your child. What a wonderful way to capture what your kids look like.

They have a vintage line that I am completely in love with, complete with a chandelier that would look adorable in a little girls room.

If you are looking to add some words to your wall, you can create your own, or check out the ideas that they have.

And.... I am saving the best for last. Scribbles has offered to host a free giveaway on the angel blog. This is what you will get:It is a tin wreath that will be made custom with your last name, and families date. All you have to do is... check out there website, and then leave us a comment telling us what your favorite product is. We will then randomly select one winner, and post your name here, on the angel blog.

The contest will be open until midnight on Thursday Sept. 11, 2008. We will post the winner Friday by 12:00 noon.

Please check back to see if you are the winner, and then we will work out the details for getting you your prize.

Thank you to Scribbleitonline. I really am so excited about their company, and I hope that you can find something that suits your home, as I have. Vinyl is really a wonderful way to spruce up a wall, door, or something that is staring you in the face. Spruce it up, by adding some character to your home. I can't wait to place my order.

How fun! I wish that I had the room to do lots of vinyl lettering. I love the ones Stephanie has in her house. I like the welcome sign in Italian and I love this one: http://166.70.142.39/Father,%20Mother,%20Children_files/to%20love%20and%20treasure.png that would be darling in Bella's room.

i love the bird on a branch decal! so cute. Someday when i have my own space again (when my daughter is grown?) i'd like the dress form decals!

Kelly Anderson said...

OHH! I LOVE vinyl lettering! Since I don't have any in my home yet, I could list at least a dozen things on that sight that I would love to have, but one of my favorites is the one that says "No joys on earth bring greater pleasure than a little girl to love and treasure." That one tugged at my heart since I am a new mom to a beautiful baby girl:)

EmandZachsmom said...

I really want to get the Front Door Sayings. They are super neat and I have not seen anything like them. I need to get one for my home. There are some kids sayings Like there is no buddy like brother. My daughter thinks that exact thing about hers!

Eileen said...

I love everything that has to do with family! I can't take more than 3 steps in my house without looking at the faces that I love (photos in frames) and I love words that give more meaning to the faces.

Kristin said...

I love the definition of baby . . . sooo cute! i've got the perfect spot for it in my little guys room!

Nancy Sabina said...

I was just visiting some other vinyl lettering site yesterday and wishing that they could do custom silhouettes! Hooray! I am so excited to get good pictures taken of my kids and order some. Thanks for the chance to win.

Becky said...

Hooray! I've been looking for a good vinyl lettering site! Thank you! I really like the surname monogram that's also pictured in this post.

Vanderbeeks Images said...

What cute stuff! This got me thinking. I could even put something on my fruit room door about food storage. Do you know if they have window clings with out the adhesive? Since I have Adobe Illustrator (a vector based program that gives you those nice smooth edges), I wonder if I could create my own custom design that they could cut for me? Hmmmm....

Emily said...

What cute ideas! Their site has a lot of neat things. What a great give-away!

Jaron said...

Oh to have a house! I loved the ward enrichment ideas. My favorite was the glass cubes. Cute! I'll have to get some of these to advertise Jaron's business on his car. (Wait, do we want to advertise on a purple Neon?!)

Jamie said...

Can I just want everything?

Elisa said...

I like the attitude one by Abraham Lincoln. And the one about being happy with what you have.

Great site. I want to enter the giveaway.

katrina said...

The silhouettes are beautiful. I tried ONCE to get my kids to sit still to trace their profiles. So did not work!
My practical nature would need the letters for salt, sugar....there's a story there.

Pam said...

I loved the inspirational sayings, expecially the one that read
Your stronger than you seem; braver than you believe; and smarter than you think you are. They are the kind of home decorations that uplift you when you walk into a room!

Elise said...

I love this site too - I actually went to school with the girl that owns it!! Anyway, there is an airplane towing a child's name behind it and I love it!! I always say that if I get a baby boy, his bedroom will be decorated with airplanes.

Brendan, Calli, Taylor and Keaton said...

I loved the recipe card holder! I think it is super cute, and would be an awesome way to display a favorite recipe!

Brandis said...

They have so many cute things!! The vintage chandelier caught my attention, but the thing that made me laugh was the no soliciting lettering on the front door. I need that!!

Lorinda said...

Love the Shel Silverstein quote above the fireplace. What an idea!

Jason and Kristina Murphy said...

What a perfect way to add personal touch to your home. just another way to make your house a home. Little touches to invite the spirit into your home is always welcomed.

Angie said...

Cute stuff! Now I want to put vinyl throughout my house!
My boys are really into birds and I Love Mr. Owl wall art. I also love the Orange Blossoms...since I just made a quilt for my daughter with flowers that look like that.

erin said...

My favorite has to be the profiles of the little ones...my grandma always had them done for us when we went to Disneyland. We sat down on Main Street and waited for our profiles to be cut - we have quite a few that shows how we grew over the years! just special memories!

Tammy said...

I liked many of the cute "sayings," but the cute dress forms just make me smile.

photographybyjocelin said...

This website is so cute---Rin, it's me, Jocelin! My sister just showed me this-it was fun to see your face again! Your hair is so long. Anyway I enjoyed peeking around the blog...
P.S. I like the vinyl Y over the white couch.

Brittany said...

I just came across this blog- it is seriously awesome! (and how cool that I'm just in time for a give away ;) Anywho, I pretty much could order everything on their sight, but I must say I love the bird on the branch and also the giant monogram with your last name. Such great stuff!

Team Chilton said...

I love all of their stuff, but I'd probably get the flowers on a branch (and some family name stuff...and I really like your "lead me, guide me, walk beside me" one too...too many choices). I love your blog, I just found it.

Tara said...

Yey... I have Scibbleit as one of my favorites on Etsy! It's so hard to choose one favorite, but I LOVE the custom silhouettes... classic and timeless and personalized.

Leila said...

I have never seen this before. You say it has been around for awhile, but it is new to me! I love it! I just spent a lot of time looking at the website and I LOVE the airplane with a child's name. My son's room is in fire trucks right now, but he is moving to a big boy bed soon, and we might just have to change to airplanes to accommodate this great decoration. Thanks for sharing!

Adrian/Randy said...

Is it bad that I just want everything?

Angie Vinez said...

I have so many undecorated walls. I just love their lettering! I think my favorite item, though, are their custom silhouettes. They are so beautiful and so unique. I'd love to have one done of my kids!

Katie said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of the wall art for sure. We're doing so much remodeling to our old house that it's hard to even think about the decorating at this point. But when I DO get to that point the Light Up The Night bugs will be in one of my kids rooms for sure.

Andrea said...

I love this vinyl lettering web site. So many cute stuff. I would love them all. I also love that they do custom stuff.

Jessica said...

What a neat company--so many things that I like--I have to pick just one? I thought the Halloween stuff was cute, but I really love the kid's bedroom art--sweet dreams with the knobby knee bird & the airplane--so sweet. So many fun ideas--now I just need a house! Please enter me!!!

Malia said...

Wow! What fun!I liked the Family Arch Decal. All of it was great. I just might have to get something to put in my home.

teampischke said...

I found your blog today. what a blessing.
I have never heard of vinyl stuff for walls.
I fell in love with the Last Name Wreath on Tin.
Ummm so much creativity out there. I love all the ideas.
thanks for your posts.

Tonya said...

I love the wall art, so cool and creative! I really like the different types of flowers!

doyles said...

i love ALL of the quotes, but i think my favorite is the one that says, "laugh as much as you breathe, love as long as you live" i think it's adorable, and it really could go in any room! i just moved and am looking for some fun new decorations and this is a great sight!

Hiatt Family said...

I love the "You are the hero of your own story" quote...it would be so cute in a boy's room!!! That's a great site.
