Mickey Mouse Night Light

I would like to start by saying Thank You to everyone for your Condolences and Thoughts. I apologize for not responding yet. As I’m sure you can imagine, life is a little chaotic right now and being on our WordPress site, let alone posting is sporadic at best right now.

Yesterday, however, I said screw everything and “played” Cricut. I needed an escape for the day and crafting seemed the best route. I did a few Easter crafts for my beautiful little granddaughter and this night light for my grandson, who should be making his grand entrance within the month! Thankfully during this stressful time we do have something wonderful to look forward to!

I made my pattern in Design Space. Doing a Mickey Mouse head is pretty simple considering it is basically made of circles.

I started with one big circle. I added a square big enough to cover half of the circle and then used the slice feature to cut my circle in half. I separated the pieces, kept what I needed and made the bottom half red. I added the two smaller black circles for Mickey’s ears, and two really small white circles for the little dots on the red half circle.

I used one of the Disney fonts for Greydon’s name and then cut everything out with my Cricut.

I adhered all of the pieces to the little LED night light I picked up from the dollar store and now I have a cute little night light as part of the gift for when he’s finally born ❤!!!

Cricut Project- Nerd Baby Bibs

I’m not sure if I’ve said anything yet, but amid all the unpleasant things happening there has been some very good news. I am going to be a grandmother again… to a baby boy! So… when I was looking for a project the other day to try to occupy my mind for a little while I thought why not make something for the baby.

Since my grandson is going to be brought up “nerd,” that seemed a good place to start. I started searching different clipart images until I found something that looked easy enough for me to turn into svg cut files. I decided on images from everyone’s favourite wizard book and movie series… Harry Potter.

I chose the images I wanted, cleaned them up in Design Space, cut them out of Heat Transfer Vinyl and then ironed them onto some plain white bibs I already had.

Now I have some cute little Nerd bibs ready for my grandson when he’s born!
