Why Are they All So Mean?

Anyone else super envious of the people that have Silhouettes?  They're always making the cutest things with them.  I'll look at a post and think to myself I want to make that and then I read the tutorial and see they used a Silhouette.  And now there's Spring into Silhouette going on over at I Heart Nap Time.  There's a Silhouette linky party, guest posts about Silhouette projects and a Silhouette giveaway.  It's like all the Silhouette owning people are choosing this week to rub it in.  I figure those of us who are still Silhouetteless have four options:

By far the easiest option is to just keep on feeling sorry for ourselves.  It's worked for us this long...

Seems easy, right?  Oh, wait a second.  Does  anyone have that kind of money to throw around?  Me neither.  Now I remember why I haven't done that yet.

We don't always have to make things ourselves.  And it seems like everyone is selling vinyls these days.  If I decide to break down and buy some myself, I think I'll buy them from Crystal at Giggly Gumdrops.  She makes adorable stuff like this:

And she sells it for so cheap.  You should definitely check her out.

I know, it sound ominous.  Wasn't vinyl made to be used in Silhouettes?  Ali at Found In The Ali says no.  She cut these super cute chalkboard vinyl pantry labels BY HAND. 

They look as good as any Silhouetted vinyls I've seen.

I don't know about the rest of you, but Ali's inspired me.  Maybe I don't need a Silhouette after all.  But that doesn't stop me from wanting one.

Wooo Hoooo!

Thanks for the love!

I know!! they are super mean, aren't they?? Psh. I wish I was "rich" :P

I made $275 at my last craft fair and bought a Memory foam mattress.... My next craft fair is going to be a direct deposit to silhouette :)

(but I promise I won't be mean ;P )

Ha ha...I know just how you feel. I see something I loooove, read the tutorial, and get halfway through to realize they used a Silhouette. :p It's definitely on my next birthday&Christmas wish list!
