Still taking Christmas orders....

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and saw us at the Victorian Country Christmas.
Thanks to all of you, we had one of our most successful shows ever!

We will be now taking orders online until December 12th. After that, we will be shutting down to spend the holidays with our families.

If you saw us at the Victorian Country Christmas and grabbed one of our cards, welcome!

Thanks to the huge success of the show, we are now SOLD OUT of our custom frames. We sold every single one including our samples.

We still have our custom family name signs available. They come in black, red, or brown.

They are $25 and make excellent Christmas gifts. We have had them personalized so many different ways. The picture above shows a last name and all the family members names through the middle. We can also do "Established" and the year someone was married, or bought a house. We can also do a favorite saying. Our most common ones are "All Because Two People Fell In Love" or "Bless This Home With Love and Laughter".

If you would like to place an order please just send us an email at
If you are local (We are in Western Washington) , pickup is available at one of our homes to save on shipping. If not, please go ahead and give us the shipping zip code in your email so we can calculate shipping. We will then be able to send out a paypal invoice to you. We are not able to start on any orders until we have received payment.

Once again - thanks for such a great season that we have had!

Meet us at MEEKER!

If you are wondering where you might be able to catch up with Windmill Lettering next, then look for us this coming weekend at the Meeker Middle School Holiday Bazaar. This is our third year doing this event and each year we are amazed at the turnout at this small neighborhood event that has been going on and growing for years. The school is located at:

4402 Nassau Ave NE
Tacoma WA

It is actually located in NE Tacoma near Federal Way.

The bazaar is on Saturday November 20th from 10:00am - 4:00pm.

We have lots of fun new projects to share with you. Many are new that you have never seen before. I don't want to ruin the surprise but they are ADORABLE!!

Because the bazaar is only for a few hours, we will not be doing the custom frames and name boards on the spot. We will however be taking pre-orders for them that we you can pick up at the show, or we will also be taking orders that day that will be ready to picked up the following Saturday. So...order away...!!!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Tacoma Dome - Here we come!

Today starts our busiest show of the year. We are going to be in 3 shows this Holiday season, but this is the biggest. We have been eating and breathing vinyl getting ready for this show, but we are ready and really excited.

If you are in the area we would love to have you stop by and see us and see our fun new items we are debuting at this show.

I am attaching some pictures of the booth. We still have some finishing touches to make on it but it is almost finished.

We will not be able to fill any orders this week, but will answer emails when we get a chance. Don't worry, once the show is over, we will be ready to keep filling any pending orders.
Thanks for all your support.

The Super Saturdays' have started and we have begun to get a lot of great feedback from our customers. It is always nice to hear how much others are enjoying the kits that we have worked so hard to create. We would love to see the fruit of our labors (and yours!). If we have helped you with your Super Saturday, take a few minutes to snap of few pictures and email them to us. With your permission, we would love to post the pictures to our blog so we can share the fun with others.

As always...happy crafting!

Ordering Deadline Update!!!

Holy Moly! Have we been busy! Thank you all for the overwhelming response to our Super Saturday projects. We have barely had a chance to come up for air the past few weeks. As you know, in addition to doing Super Saturday crafts, we are also preparing for several fall and holiday craft shows.


We will not be fulfilling any orders between the dates of October 15th and October 24th. IF YOU ARE ORDERING KITS AND NEED TO HAVE THEM WITHIN THIS DATE RANGE, YOU MUST ORDER ON OR BEFORE OCTOBER 14th. If you are ordering kits that do not need to arrive until after October 24th, then you might want to place your order as soon as possible as we will not be working on Super Saturday kits during this time frame.

As always, we ask for a minimum of two weeks notice when placing orders. This is especially important as we approach a very busy month with these critical black-out dates. We just want to make sure everyone is well aware of these restrictions.

Thank you for your understanding and as always...HAPPY CRAFTING!

Double-sided FUN!

My life is crazy right now! Like I said before, I am actually dreaming vinyl. The other night I was thinking of something like these double sided holiday boards pictured below. You can use them for both Christmas and Halloween by just turning them around. CUTE! Huh? The possibilities with this are endless. I have all kinds of other holiday words running through my brain. We will have these available at our Tacoma Dome Holiday Gift Show coming up in October and they will be $30 each.

I also made these little cuties. I wish I could say I came up with this idea but regretfully I didn't. I saw it somewhere else and just put my own little spin on it. These will be $7.50 each.
Look for both of these available next year as Super Saturday kits.
Happy crafting!

A Little Clarification....

It seems that there has been a lot of confusion around our previous post about taking a break. We are just taking a break from single orders for individuals that are not ordering them for Super Saturday activities. We are doing that so that we can focus on fulfilling Super Saturday orders.

If you have a full Super Saturday order, just email us at
We usually repond to you within 24 hours with a Paypal invoice. Once we receive your payment, we get started on your order right away. Be sure to include the date of your activity in your email so that we are sure to get things to you in time.

We will resume taking single orders October 25th after the Tacoma Dome Holiday Gift Show that we are participating in. You will plenty of time to make your craft before Christimas.

Sorry for the confusion! ORDER AWAY....

Check These Out!

It has been another whirlwind week at Windmill Lettering. Thank you everyone to your overwhelming response to our craft kits. It gives a tremendous amount of satisfaction and joy to know that so many others are enjoying what we do. Thank you also for your patience as we work day and night to keep up with the demand. We will get you just as soon as we possibly can.

As I have mentioned before, in addition to fulfilling new orders, we are trying to prepare for our fall shows. This week I made the following new items. I think they all came out pretty dang cute!
Just a reminder that we will be at Tacoma Dome Holiday gift show October 20 - 25 in booths 517 and 519. Look for these and many more new items there!
Halloween quote blocks - We had a customer custom order this saying from us and I thought it was so cute that I decided to make some blocks of our own. ADORABLE! and super fun to get the kids excited for Halloween!

Believe signs - This is another one of my favorites. We have done these on tiles before but I thought it would be fun to shrink them down a bit and put them on a decoupaged board. I think they came out pretty cute.

Single Holiday blocks - These are the perfect little touch for a desk or a entry hall table to welcome the season. I have made them for Christmas and Halloween as shown but have plans to do them for Fall and Winter as well.

Knob blocks - I changed out all of my knobs in my kitchen a little while ago and had all these extra knobs laying around. The problem was, they were brass. I fixed that quickly with a can of brushed nickel spray paint and voila....I made these cute blocks with a variety of different sayings. The organza ribbon gives it just the decorative touch it needs. Fun...huh? And a great way to recycle.

More to come next week! Stay tuned and keep crafting!

Countin' Down...A Different Way

The Countdown Blocks we have done for Super Saturday's have been so popular, I thought I would come up with a different version. I just finished making a bunch of these for our craft shows coming up in October (excuse the poor picture, it was taken with a cell phone. I will take a better one soon). The numbers are attached to a piece of metal covered in cute seasonal scrapbook paper. To make them extra cute and to give them a finished look, the metal is surrounded in red rick-rack. The snowflake is a magnet that you move down everyday (starting on December 1st) to count down to the big day. Oh...and don't you love the new scroll hanger? I am not sure I want to add a piece of ribbon yet. I sort of like the simple look. Anyway, we have a bunch of those metal scroll hangers on hand so look for some fun new projects using those.

And...I have also now finished the Christmas yardstakes and love love love the way they came out. The jingle bells make them really fun. I still have to finish the Winter ones but look for those soon.

I absolutely LOVE crafting! My head is spinning with ideas...stay tuned for more coming soon! Happy Crafting!

Wood - REMIX!

Last year we purchased about 200 or so boards in the hopes of making frames to sell at our shows. After a day of cutting angles, gluing corners and generally scratching our heads we finally decided to give up. The lesson we learned was that frames are not so easy to make and that we should leave it to the experts! The end result was that we ended up with a ton of leftover boards with nothing to do with them. Big waste of money...right? They ended up sitting in a corner of my garage for the next year.

The other night I started thinking I could make something with those old boards. Seasonal yard stakes came to mind and I commenced designing them. The result is below. I am done with the Halloween and Fall options. I am still working on the Christmas and Winter ones. What do you think? I think they came out pretty cute. I am still trying to figure out some cute saying to put on the top part of the Halloween one. I am thinking something like "Welcome Spooks!" or "All Spooks Welcome" or something like that. I would love your ideas! Look for these on sale at our next show which is the Tacoma Dome Holiday Gift Show beginning on October 20th. They will be $20 each. We will be in booth #517 so be sure to stop by and see us. Many more new projects to come.
