Better with Glitter

About a year ago I was perusing something online - don't remember what. I think I was looking for options on making monogram decals for some of my stuff. I came across a machine called the Silhouette Cameo. I stayed up late researching it, and the next morning zipped over to Michael's and picked one up.

I loffs it.

One of the first things I made was a monogram decal for my car.
You can't tell in the picture, but my initials are in pink glitter.

I know monograms are a big thing in the southern states, but not up here in Canada. But I've always had a thing for them - to me it screams "classic equestrian".

Since then, I have been working through all of my horse stuff and labelling whatever I can. 

My helmet
Blanket storage box at the barn

Pony treat container (contents result in rotundness)

Brushes will get their own blog post one day. All of my wood handled brushes were painted and decorated.

Then there are the things I can decorate with HTV - heat transfer vinyl. Unfortunately, the material that most horse blankets are made of won't work for this - the vinyl won't adhere as the material is too slippery. But if it's a cotton or polyester blend, it should be good. So not much at the barn, but lots for my house.

Pillow cases

Lots of pillow cases

Sweat shirts

Dish towels (in a way, horse related since I'm probably at the barn avoiding housework!)


Tote bags

And more T-shirts (with lots of glitter)
I love my Silhouette Cameo. So many things to decorate. Preferably with glitter.


  1. Love them. Will see you at the Stony Plain tack sale with them I hope.

    1. I will have some things there! I need to haul out my camera to create a look book.

  2. I love the monogram decal on your car, especially the pink glitter! 💖
