I made it AWESOME

So we had to buy a new van.

I'm super excited/super frusterated about the whole thing.  I've hated my old van for about a year.  It was ALWAYS in the shop; I couldn't ever trust it.  It had a lot of miles and was falling apart in places, and parts were getting really hard to find for it. 

But it was paid off.  It was all ours.  I knew how to do everything with it.  I didn't care about where I parked it because it didn't matter if it go scratched or dented or whatever. 

Our new van is 7 years old, but has such low miles it's like it's only 2 years old.  We got an amazing price on it.  It has a rediculous number of extras on it.  It has much more space inside so my kids don't hit each other.

But it means a signifigant car payment.  And I don't know how to use all the extras.  And I'm scared that I'll get in an accident or something. 

And it's silver.

I'm not really a fan of silver.  Everyone has a silver car.  I liked that my old van was unique; I could always pick it out.  This one, not so much.

So I needed to change that.  I asked for input on Face book. I googled (a LOT) for ideas.  And I finally found MarkedCo on etsy.

I lover her stuff.

Super fun, nice and quirky.  Adorable ideas. 

I asked her to customize something for me (just a little customize. It was something designed for a laptop, and I wanted it car sized).  She was super easy to work with and got my stuff to me quickly. 

And I made my mini van AWESOME.

Wannna see?

So here's my van.

This is on the rear passenger window. I think it's my new motto.

And then moving on to the really fun side:

It starts on the rear drivers side window

And wonders over to the back.

 And ends with a tiny little wand as my fake wizard dissapears.

I love it.  And I can find my van now.  It makes me super happy!


  1. Love it! The wizard footprints are fantastic!

  2. That is fantastic! I haven't read blogs in a really long time. I have to catch up on all of your posts!

  3. I love the customized stickers and the footprints, Laree! I think it['s very creative for a fellow Harry Potter fan. Hahaha! Anyway, the new mini van looks great. Hopefully, saying goodbye to the old van wasn't too hard for you. All the best to you! :)
