Halloween Treat of the Week

We found this silhouette pumpkin last October in Country Home magazine. It was designed by Matthew Mead, whose site you should definitely check out. You can easily make it yourself by purchasing little frames made for scrapbooking at your local craft store, and paint them black. Then look for the little clip art silhouettes in books or online, and just shrink them down on your copier to fit the frames.

We recently joined Facebook and have been amazed at the friends and family that it has reconnected us with, so we decided it was time for Simply Silhouettes to jump on the bandwagon too.

We invite you to join us. You'll also be the first to know about new products, special sales, giveaways and more.

Kids Rock!

Today on Cool Mom Picks we came across this great silhouette t-shirt from Tiny Revolutionary, and as parents of a budding guitarist, we couldn't resist sharing it today.

Here's a close-up of the silhouette:
Tiny Revolutionary is also donating $10 from the sale of every shirt to Rock for Kids. Since 1988 Rock for Kids has been providing music education & instruments to homeless and underprivileged kids in the Chicago area. Rock On!

Etsy Find of the Day

We've found all sorts of innovative silhouettes over on Etsy, but this print of a knit silhouette by eekdesign is one of the most unique we've seen.

It's printed on heavyweight archival paper so you can even handpaint it like this example.

We mentioned these great silhouette plates by Danny Seo last year and here's Design Mom's take on them. She turned it into a fun family project with her kids and got some terrific Halloween decorations.

Family Portrait

Look at this terrific silhouette family portrait found on Glamour magazine's blog Smitten. What a cute idea. It would be a cute birth announcement too. You can see more of this family and their home here on Martha Stewart Living.

We love this idea so much but can't quite figure how to work out the equation with our two kids. If you're interested in something like this for your own family or as a gift, just contact us at info@simplysilhouettes.com. We'd love to work with you.
