For some reason or another I'm obsessed with contact paper. Maybe it's because it's an easy way to transform objects, walls, anything really. It might be because shelf liner is cheap, or maybe it's the renter in me that loves how temporary it is. Whatever the case, it's a fact that I love vinyl. And it's a fact that I love to DIY, which is how this customized vinyl wall decal came to be.
I don't know about you, but I've been basically looking forward to Halloween since New Year's Eve. It's such a fun holiday! Candy, ghosts, and ghouls - oh my!

At this point in my relationship, we're sorta past making a big deal for Valentine's Day. As I look back, we never really did much, but these days, it's simply a reminder that we're a pretty great fit for each other, and that every day feels special.
