Summer Cups For the Kids

This position for PC has led me to creativity that I never thought of before. I'm using my Cricut every day. I'm having crafty dreams, and thoughts constantly. I'm having to take a notebook with me so I can jot down my next big idea.

Too bad I'm big on thoughts and small on time.

I've always been in love with the idea of vinyl. Vinyl on the walls, the truck, and now cups. (No, not record vinyl, though there are some great things that can be done with that too.)
I went to the Dollar Tree and bought two cups for Nikki and Jimmy for the summer. These are cups that are authorized to go outside, and cannot have anything but water or juice in them, Nikki picked out the ones with straws, and I'm NOT a big fan of that. Gunked up milk and me do not get along. And I've shoved way too many pipe cleaners (You will never get me to say chenille stick, I'm sorry. It wasn't broke, it shouldn't have been 'fixed'.) up a tube in my lifetime because the child couldn't live without the cup. This would be the same child who couldn't be bothered to rinse out the cup in the first place either, I'd rather toss them.

So Alas, I've got straw cups again, in in my week of blinging things out, I'm closing with these:
The kids love them, and I'll manage to not cuss too much over cleaning straws all summer long.
