Things I Love: Monogramming

One of these days I'm going to get a sewing maching that has monogramming capabilities and proceed to monogram EVERYTHING I own.  Seriously.  Down to the toilet paper.  I love monograms that much. 

If you love monograms too, here are a few ideas to try:

There are a TON of cute ideas for these!  Slap one on the top of your cooler, put another on your water bottle, and you could even monogram your car or mailbox.  Vinyl letters will stick almost anywhere!

My sister-in-law and I both have the extra-large size and they are AMAZING.  They hold everything (she has 5 kids, I have only one but I like to carry a lot of stuff).  And yes, ours are monogrammed.  :)

What a great detail for the entryway?!  Perfect for newlyweds, or a housewarming gift.

I could seriously go on forever with things that are monogrammed.  Really though, almost ANYTHING can be monogrammed.  I have a monogrammed camera strap (I took mine to a monogram store and they put my name on it in about 10 minutes), and a custom paif of Converse Low-Tops that have my name on them too.  A lot of catalog stores like LL Bean, Company Store, and Pottery Barn will also monogram your purchases, you just have to look around on their website for it and pay the small fee (usually around $5).  OR!  You can ask around and find a friend with an embroidery machine.  I have at least two friends who have one, and it's great to barter with them for their services!  Something like, you cook her dinner, she monograms your stuff.  Win win!
