This was my first attempt at these, so needless to say I learned a lot for the next time......and I would like there to be a next time so I can improve on these.
Anyway, I thought they'd be fun for the holidays.  After all, how many times have you set down your drink and then nobody can remember whose is whose?

I made these with my Silhouette machine.  For those of you who know Silhouette or Cricket, you know lettering can take some time.  Especially when you have letters with a "counter".  A counter is is the center of a letter which is totally enclosed like an "e", "g", "a", etc.  Before you can cut those you first have to work on each individual letter to create a cut so the entire counter isn't removed.  Complicated?, I wouldn't call it complicated, but definitely tedious.   And then, when you're a perfectionist like I am, it can take a bit of time (to be hones, I'm still not completely satisfied with these....but, they'll work)!

I knew I liked my name!  No counters; so mine was one of the easy ones!  Of the family names I needed to create, five of them had counters....whew!!!
I already have plans for next years and they involve snowflakes!!
