summer time toes by McCall Manor

This post is dedicated to my college roomie.


She is a funny, funny person. Kym is the kind of friend that will be making mischief in the nursing home one day. I can totally see her pulling the fire alarm at the home and riding away from the scene of the crime on her bright red rascal.

…I hope we are stuck in the same home together…

She made a big mistake one day — she let me in on a pet peeve of hers.

…She should have known better…

She hates all the pictures that people post of their feet propped up with the beach (or anything actually) in the background.

…Game on…

The Pretty Girl and I have made it a goal to send her pics of our feet wherever we go.

…Because that is what good friends do…

We have sent her pictures of our feet at the beach, at Disney, in our living room, and so on…

…The possibilities of annoying her are endless…

If you happen to know my friend Kym, feel free to join us in this effort. I get the feeling that she really does enjoy the pics that I send her, she just likes to pretend to be grossed out.  😉

So here’s to you Kym!!

Silhouette Project Alert

I heard someone once say about the necessity of monogramming “If my monogram isn’t on my bag (or shirt, necklace,etc), how will people know it belongs to me?” I completely agree. Monograms aren’t just for decoration—they are a necessity.

The first step–and I know it’s a weird one– see what size you will be making your monogram.

I think I can honestly say that this was my first time to ever measure my toenails.

I used the font ‘circle three monogram’

I used sticky-back vinyl and made sure to click “double cut” so that weeding wouldn’t be a pain.   Then apply to your big toe with Silhouette transfer paper.

…let the toe-selfies commence…

Okay, maybe it’s not a necessity in this case, but it will make your ‘toe selfies’ so much cuter.

And Kym will just appreciate them that much more.

  1. Love these! Now I want to make monograms for me and all of my girlfriends. Manicure time! 🙂

  2. Such an original idea! I love that you thought outside of the box and did these! The are super cute!

    LOVE these! I’ve been meaning to attempt this myself, but haven’t yet. I recently cut out some shapes for nail decals and tried a swirly monogram, but the monogram was just too tiny/delicate to work. The block circle monogram should work well. 🙂 Thanks for the tutorial!

    I love the ones you made for me Holly! It’s been a week and they still look great! Thanks for not making fun of me for being unable to reach my toes! ☺️

  5. Oh my gosh!! This is such a cute idea!!

  6. Holly,
    This project is darling. You are brilliant because, toes are hard to keep cute in the summer. Not any more.
