My Favorite Vinyl Vixen

I have been meaning to post these pics for ages now and am just finally getting around to it...sorry :(

So, often times I will go over to other people's houses and love how they have decorated and I often times find myself loving vinyl lettering that people have on their walls. The only problem with that is that I am REALLY specific about what I like and I don't want to have the exact same thing that everyone else has. To give you an idea, my mom made the bedding for Macey's crib and Zacc and his mom made the wall hangings in her nursery. It's totally unique and I absolutely LOVE that no one else's nursery looks like Macey's. So as much as I love vinyl lettering, I really didn't want to have the same thing everyone else has in their home. I wanted something unique and customized (this is where my cute friend Gretchen totally swooped in and saved the day).

I told her that I had been wanting some vinyl but wasn't exactly sure what I wanted.

Gretchen: No worries, I have a whole binder you can look through. (no kidding, the options seemed endless).

Me: Well, I really like this one, but I want the spacing to be different and I need the layout of the words swapped because it needs to go above this picture that Zacc gave me for a wedding gift.

Gretchen: No problem, just tell me what you want and I can make it for you :)

Me: Really? Also, I want this one for Macey's nursery, but I want the colors of the letters to be green and the butterflies to be pink.

Gretchen: Perfect, that would be way cute!

Me: Thinking to myself (Are you serious, you are really going to let me pick EXACTLY what I want, and make you change it all around and you are really going to be this nice about it?) Done, I am buying all of my vinyl lettering from you from here on out.

Not only was she AMAZING to work with (and quick might I add), I absolutely love the way they turned out. The lettering in Macey's room is adorable and the "icing on the cake" in her cute nursery.

Here are some pics to prove it:
