Monograms!


 

I just returned from one of the largest gift shows in the country preparing for all things fashionable for spring 2014 and I am here to tell you that monogrammed anything and everything is more than a trend….it’s practically a life style. People have gone monogram crazy. You can put a monogram on everything from your rubber rain boots to your car steering wheel and seat covers.

Yep!  Most of the gorgeous monogramming you see and envy these days are simply ironed on and cost a fraction of the price. You can find LOADS of monogramming sites on ETSY.COM that will send you your letters or designed medallions for just a dollar or two!  I AM NOT KIDDING!  You can now monogram your undies for as little as a dollar!

With Christmas right at our doorstep, this week is the time to order your iron-on monograms for crafts and gifts. This personalization makes even the thriftiest items seem rich and super thoughtful.  Let the fun begin!!
