The JanTink Mobile!!!
After I got my car detailed, I figured I could finally do this. Before, I didn't want my pit of a vehicle reflecting badly on my business, LOL! I was totally inspired by Patty Bennet doing the same thing to her car, except I took mine a little further, as you will see.
But now my car is SO clean and so lovely...and my children are NOT allowed to eat in it, FOR-EV-ER. All their belongings and trash will be removed when they get out of the car, the exception being their softball mitts. I pondered having them remove their shoes when they get in, but figured that was going a little far. And then I'd have to smell their feet while driving and the thought wasn't all that attractive.
The people at the car wash where I had it detailed told me it was in pretty darned good shape for a '99 van. And they made me swear I would vacuum it more often and wash it regularly too. After the amount of vacuuming they had to do to get it clean (for which I was charged extra!), they obviously had developed a feeling of ownership.
Anyway, further views:
This was an adventure. I had NEVER done anything with Decor Elements before. I had bought them and just kept them, thinking I would someday figure out where to put them. Then when SU! came out with the logo ones, I decided I'd do my van. I messed up in a couple of places, but mostly they are GOJUS (YILM!)
Things I discovered:
- These peel off the best if you pull the backing at very sharp angle.
- Go slow, because when you get cocky about how well you're doing and start going faster, that's when you end up messing up!
- If you mess up something, sometimes you can rescue it with a pair of tweezers.
- If all else fails, you can trim off bits that get messed up if it doesn't bolux up the design.
So there it is, the JanTink Mobile! If you see my van out and about, be sure to let me know! Ta!
