More Little Projects and a New Friend...

So I've been a bit obsessed with vinyl lettering ever since last fall when I made a few signs for my home. We've been wanting a sign with our house number out front and a little more happening on the front porch so I made this:

I also wanted some color in the kids bathroom. Since we are deep in the trenches of potty training I seem to be asking these questions very frequently- Do you close the toilet? Did you flush? Did you wash? So I thought this sign would be cute:

Julia and Kennedy caught a bunch of caterpillars a while back and watched as they transformed to butterflies. They let them all go but one because she can't really fly. Her wings are either damaged or never formed quite right. So she has become Julia's dear pet, Butter. I really feel bad for her because she is so "well-loved", but I'm sure she wouldn't have lasted as long as she has if she was free.
