Monogram Monday: It's Happening

Last week I debated if Monogram Monday was a thing, or if we could make it a thing. I ended up deciding that, regardless of its status, it should become a thing. So here we are, today is the second Monogram Monday and I am really excited about it. Sadly, I am not wearing a monogram today (I really need a monogrammed necklace!), but I have plenty of other monograms and ideas.
Today's monogram isn't one item in particular, but actually about how easy it is to monogram everything. I can draw a circle block monogram, but if you ask me to do any other style, my lack of artistic ability comes out and it's just a big scribbly mess. How do I overcome this so that I can monogram everything that isn't moving? Enter the vinyl monogram sticker. It comes in all fonts, colors, and sizes. It can be applied to almost any surface, and they are super inexpensive.
I am not exaggerating about this either. You can monogram everything from your wall to the home button on your iPhone. Personally, I have my laptop, planner, water bottle (well, had...I lost it this fall) and backup iPhone case done with these vinyl stickers. I also monogrammed Lilly Pulitzer shopper totes for my littles during Big Sis Week. Yep, I overcame the time crunch and gave them personalized goodies. These things are the bomb dot com.

Favorite Monogram Sticker Sites:
Etsy Marketplace (knock yourself out)
Lulu and B (great iPhone button ones)
Marley Lilly (is any monogram list complete without this gem?)

my laptop monogram (old pic...the stickers around it have changed a bit)

Now that I am talking about them, I am thinking it is the perfect time to order a couple more. As Reese Witherspoon says, "If it isn't moving, monogram it."
