 Laundry. No matter how many different chemical treatments I try, I simply cannot get stubborn stains out of my laundry. From organic, protein-based stains to stains from synthetic materials, I am completely lacking in stain-removing skills. No matter how much I scrub, stains stay. I completely sympathize with Lady Macbeth...

This paper cut was cut using my Silhouette Cameo,and it was originally supposed to be blood red, but the blade didn't cut cleanly (my replacement blade is buried somewhere), so I chose a green paper to represent grass stains. The green will look better in my laundry room anyway (for now).

Thanks! I made it for the Fall Nerd Battles, and I was stumped for quite a while about what to make. I asked a friend for her favorite quotes from Shakespeare, and we started tossing out a bunch, when I remembered this one, I knew I had to hang it in my laundry room! Maybe it'll help...

Lady Macbeth said that? Not only did I get a good laugh, I also learned something!

Thanks, folks! And, even though it is a bit of a cheat to use the Silhouette to cut it out, I do spend quite a bit of time getting it set up. I attached each piece (including the little clothespins) and word separately, before I welded it together. This is the third piece I've done like this, and I'm getting a bit better at it, but it still takes a while.

Now, I really want to get my laundry room done so I can frame it and hang it up... But, that will not be at least for another two years Sad I guess I could still hang it on the sheetrock... since the walls will probably need to be "re-sheetrocked" anyway...

Thanks, blupaisan!

If I had a good way to share the Silhouette file (besides sending it as an e-mail attachment), I'd offer it up to folks who would use it!
