Batman themed Macbook

You may have been wondering where I've been this last week.  I've been trying to catch up on things around my house since I'm starting to get around a lot better.  I have so many things I had planned to do in the month of August and none of it got done.  I had all day while my girls were at school to work in peace, but that didn't work out.  I had my appointment with the ortho doc on Monday and found out my leg is still very broken.  I was really hoping that it would be healed or nearly healed by now, but it was quickly pointed out that I'm 40 and don't heal as quickly as younger people (boo!).  I'm still supposed to take it a little easy, but I can walk without a brace (and have been for three weeks now).  It is sore, but nothing that can hold me back.  The only downside is two months of physical therapy, most of which I have get to do at home.

Now that I am moving better, I started volunteering at my girls' school.  I work for a few hours two days a week between four teachers.  I'm mostly just stapling papers and making copies, but I hope I'm helping the teachers out a little.  That leaves me only a couple of days a week that I can get things done and I'm afraid the blog got a little neglected.

That doesn't mean I haven't done anything fun.  Remember when we celebrated my hubby's 40th birthday with a little Batman stuff?  Well, he requested I use my Silhouette to decorate his Macbook with a Batman theme.  I'm sorry for this bad picture, but here is how it turned out.

The city, the Batman and the Bat signal are all from fonts (Little City 2000, Batman, and Hall of Heroes).  That means you can print them on clear labels and put them on if you don't have a way to cut vinyl.  I just cut two long strips of white for the beacon.

I've made some other things, too.  I'm working on my girls' Halloween costumes and I will post them as soon as I finish.  Until then, you can check out Jessie, Mickey & Minnie, Pinkalicious and tutus if you need some costume ideas.

  1. This is very cute! I have tried several times to cut out something on my Silhouette for my iphone and ipad and I can't for the life of me get the dimensions correct for the apple...I have since gave up..LOL! Maybe one day I will get it right!

    Always Trying

    1. I always measure to make sure mine will fit. The bat is a little big because it was the center of the signal that got applied to something else. He just didn't want to waste the bat so he stuck it on his apple. The rest formed from there. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This is so cute! Such a fun idea! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love this - so much fun! To the bat cave!
