Share Your Love for Pumpkin Spice with This $2 DIY Mug

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  It has FINALLY started to feel like fall here in South Carolina.  Every afternoon when I get home from school the weather is just cool enough that I'm starting to feel the need to hibernate.  You know what I mean...I feel the need to change into my pajamas and drink something hot while I sit cozy under a blanket.  Of course, one of my favorite hot drinks is coffee, and I have a thing for cute coffee mugs.  It's a borderline obsession that I recently fed when I made myself a fun hand-lettered "Livin' on Prayer & Pumpkin Spice" mug.  (Because it is the season of pumpkin spice everything, and Lord knows I need all the prayer I can get!) Since I know I can't be the only person with a mug obsession, today I'm sharing the tutorial for my fabulous hand-lettered mug that I created for about $2, and because I love y'all, I'm giving you the free hand-lettered cut file so that you can make your own!

 My new mug started its life as a lowly orange coffee mug that I bought at Dollar Tree for a whopping $1. With the addition of a vinyl decal that I created with my Silhouette Cameo and a hand-lettered cut file I designed, my mug is now all kinds of fabulous.  Keep reading to for the how-to...

Hey, y'all!  Are y'all Disney fans?  I'm not sure how anyone could NOT be a Disney fan, so you probably answered yes.  Well, today I have teamed up with a whole slew of talented bloggers to share Disney-inspired projects with y'all.  We each made a project using vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, and, y'all, everyone's projects are sooooo awesome!  I made a glittery tee that features a hand-lettered quote from Cinderella, and I'm sharing the full tutorial, along with the FREE SVG and Silhouette cut files, with y'all today.  And at the end of the post, I'm sharing links to all the other creative Disney-inspired projects.  As if that wasn't enough epicness for one post, you can enter to win a Southern California vacation at the end of the post!!!  Let's begin, shall we?
Make a glittery, hand-lettered Cinderella quote t-shirt to remind you to keep dreaming
When I was asked to be a part of this blog hop, my first two thoughts were that I would either make something inspired by The Little Mermaid (because mermaids, duh) or something inspired by Cinderella because Cinderella's Castle is one of my favorite things in Disney World.  I looked up some quotes from the movies, and this quote from Cinderella just screamed to be hand lettered.  Plus, I have a few dreams that I'm still wishing for, and I need all the positive affirmations I can get.  You can make your very own Cinderella quote tee quickly and easily following the steps below.

How to Make Easy Halloween Wall Art

This post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  Can I get a "woot, woot" for it finally being fall?!  I love summer, but I am so ready for the cooler weather that comes with fall, and, of course, I'm ready for all the fall holidays.  I love that I'm starting to see pumpkins around town, and I know that Halloween decorations are soon to follow. In preparation for that, I made some really fun hand-lettered Halloween wall art this week, and, y'all, it was so easy to make using a witch's hat blank from the craft store, my Silhouette Cameo, and vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.  Not only am I sharing the tutorial with you today, but I'm also sharing the free hand-lettered cut file with you so that you can make your own.

Of course, you could use the cut file to create a t-shirt, a card, or even a decal for a mug, but how cute is it on this witch's hat?  And that polka dot vinyl from Expressions Vinyl is just too fun!  Read on for the full tutorial...

How to Wear a Wood Watch

This post was sponsored by JORD Wood Watches and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  I am so excited about today's post because I get to share my favorite new accessory with you: my Cora Koa & Rose Gold Watch from JORD Wood Watches.  If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, it's probably glaringly obvious that I adore all things girly.  I'm not a fashionista by any means, but I am a sucker for a cute outfit and beautiful accessories.  If you've followed my blog for a while, you know that my husband has two JORD wood watches that he loves, so when JORD contacted me about reviewing one of their watches, I was thrilled to finally be getting my very own unique watch.  And, y'all, after having my watch for a couple of weeks, I can honestly say that I love it!  I know that a watch made of wood may sound like a novel idea, and you may wonder how to wear something so unique, so today's post is for you.  I'm showing you how to wear a wood wrist watch, and later in the post I'm sharing how you can enter to win a $100 e-gift code to JORD Wood Watches!

What I love most about my new watch is that I can style it up or down.  The wood band is classy yet somewhat casual, and the rose gold face dotted with Swarovski crystal markers is so feminine and pretty.  The combination of these two features make this watch look great with a t-shirt or a pretty skirt, which is perfect for me.  I might often change my earrings or wear different bracelets, but when I invest in a watch, I expect it to go with whatever I wear.  My new watch does just that.  Let me show you what I mean...

Make Easy Hand Lettered Fall Wall Art with Free Cut File

This post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  I am so excited about today's post!  I am an ambassador for Expressions Vinyl, and they recently contacted me about being a part of a fun vinyl competition with a bunch of talented bloggers, so of course I jumped at the chance!  I knew about the contest way in advance, but in my usual style, I waited to the almost-last minute to create my project.  My main problem was that I struggled creating a hand-lettered design, only to realize after I finished it that I hated it.  After that waste of time, I realized that I had a hand-lettered design from last year that I made a printable with that would be PERFECT for some fall art.  So today I'm sharing my brand new Hand-Lettered Fall Wall Art, and because I always want y'all to be able to easily recreate my projects even if you have no hand-lettering skills, I'm giving you the free Silhouette cut file so that you can make your own!  And at the end of the post, I'm sharing the link where you can go to vote for your favorite vinyl project (hopefully mine) and enter a giveaway from Expressions Vinyl!

Now I don't know if y'all have ever created art with vinyl before, but it is SO EASY.  All you need is a painted board, some vinyl, and a cutting machine, and you can have brand new art in no time!
