First off, don't forget to VOTE FOR CARMEN today! And thank you to all of those who are voting and voting daily!
Now back to the laundry dilemma! Recently my washer acquired some issues that I didn't want to have to fix myself. While I was at work my daughter called a repairman and he told her it was going to be $40 for the lid switch, $40 for him to just look at the washing machine to see what the problem was with the drum and I would have to pay that whether he could fix it or not and then the bomb....we had to take the washing machine to him and he was backed up by a few days and didn't know when he would be able to get to it. I knew I would probably be looking at at least $150 to $200 to get the washing machine fixed, which is half the price of a brand new decent washing machine. I am not one of those who thinks they have to have a fancy washer, as long as it gets my clothes clean I could careless if it has digital controls, glass doors, etc.
hour after I asked if they would sell the washer and dryer separate
some lady posted she wanted both. She kept telling them she wanted them.
When the seller finally posted she would sell them separately and wanted $50 each, the other lady again said she wanted
BOTH and would be coming from an hour away. Chuck quickly took the
seats out the van and we headed over to get the washer.
So for the price of the lid switch and gas to get the old washer repaired I got a newer washer!
I have been wanting to do something with vinyl in my washing area but never have done it, one thing is that I could never decide for sure what I wanted *okie has such a terrible time with commitment*. Yesterday I started looking up wall quotes for laundry rooms and came across quite a few I liked.
These were the first two designs I did and was trying to decide which one I liked better. I loved the sarcasm in the first one but liked the elegant look of the second one.
I kept looking at some others and came across another quote and that is the one I decided to go with for my laundry area. My friend Amy P. said she thought this one sounded more like me except I needed to put in "Do it your damn self" and my BFF Karen was quick to agree. And to tell the truth, they are probably right about that sounded like me HA HA HA.
I wasn't going to share the files, simply because I have been feeling a little put out about sharing lately, ya know people wanting you to design things for them and some almost demanding. But then I decided I should go ahead and share them anyway because someone might like to use them and I won't ever use the other two, at least I don't think I would use them but who knows...I might just go on a vinyl my laundry area craze, yeah okay, not likely!
LOVE this Okie!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
love it! thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Thank you Okie. I have voted for your friend. I have noticed on forums lately that people have been quite pushy about designing files for them so I can understand where you are coming from!ReplyDelete
thank you so much. I love your work.ReplyDelete
great saying...love itReplyDelete
I don't have a machine that uses SVG's/ I wish I did as that quotation is PERFECT!!ReplyDelete
Never demanding---always appreciative....wish I were as talented!:)ReplyDelete
Glad you found a great deal! Love the cool saying you put above your washer.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing these Shirley! :)ReplyDelete
I don't understand how people can be so rude, especially when you give so much of your time and talent for free! I appreciate all you do on here and think it is very kind of you to give your files to us for free. Thanks so much! I love the saying you put on your laundry room wall. :)ReplyDelete
I'm always amazed at how pushy people can be. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us :)ReplyDelete

Love it! You are a great designer!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing this, I will be using it in my laundry room. I need something in there to make me smile! :D I'm sorry people are being demanding, I know how you feel. You do something nice for someone once or twice then people begin to expect it from you. Rude!!! Just say NO!!!ReplyDelete
You're very generous. I hope you and Linda find just a bit of amusing trouble. hehe!
OH I hope the negative/demanding people don't keep you from sharing. I do not tell you THANK YOU as often as I should. I love your cuts and really enjoy your stories. POOH POOH on them!!!!!ReplyDelete
thanks, I like the one you used the best too!!!ReplyDelete
Great bargain... well done. Wanna try to get me a dryer? LOL :-DReplyDelete
Love the quotes, thank you so much for sharing.. that is so going on my Utility Room wall.
I have followed your blog for years and have so appreciated all your sharing - files, ideas, etc. Just wanted you to know that you are appreciated!ReplyDelete
I for one am very glad you are still sharing. I'm new here and very appreciative of the work you do. Can't wait to put this up in my laundry room. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Wonderful quotes - thank you for your generosity!ReplyDelete
Your vinyl looks great ! I wish I had an open area in my laundry room to do this !ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing. I can certainly understand your hesitancy because I know you must feel like you are "overwork and underpaid" when you share without appreciation!! Please know I am in awe of your generosity!!ReplyDelete
Okielady - thanks for changing your mind and deciding to share. I love these quotes. I think I remember from my wishblade days that you created and shared like a gazillion files. Am I remembering right?ReplyDelete
I shared files for a long time that I created with Design Studio to use with the Cricut. I stopped making files so much after they started getting a lot more carts and original designs where needed. Now I generally share any file I make using MTC.ReplyDelete
Great file, thank you for sharing this!ReplyDelete
