5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. The puppy is high maintenance for the next two week. She got herself an ear infection, and also apparently dogs get seasonal allergies just like humans do. So we have an ear cream, a special shampoo, prescription pills and Benedryl. And most of those have to be attended to twice a day. Yeah. Fun times over here. Sienna is not loving it. I keep telling her she’ll love it after her ear and itchies are all better. She remains… Read the rest ⇒


Busy Little Bee

Gold Clover on Green Tee by Dragonflight Dreams

Now that the craft show is past, I’ve been attending to a lot of the other to-do list items for my shop. First up, I’m finally getting photos of the made-to-order shirts on an actual person! Witness: Yeah, that’s just me wearing them. I never know what to do with my arms. I only have photos of the size mediums I had printed so far (note to self: always print a size medium for the example shots for made-to-order shirts),… Read the rest ⇒


Taking Stock

Sienna does not think taking photos of her is a productive use of my time.

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. Making : a few more prints for this weekend’s craft show. Cooking : nothing at the moment. Will probably have leftovers for lunch (spaghetti). Drinking : water. Reading: The Furies by Mark Alpert. Wanting: to do too many things at once. Looking: at the computer screen, out the window, and occasionally at the pup at my feet. Playing: I was playing Two Dots, but I… Read the rest ⇒


July Shop Charity

Greenpeace

In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support. July is host to UV Safety Month and Parks & Recreation Month. Since those are all about the great outdoors, I’ve chosen Greenpeace to be this month’s beneficiary. They are the largest independent direct-action environmental organization in the world. You might know… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

1. Currently sitting in my office while the A/C guys put in a whole new air conditioning system. Yeah. It crapped out Wednesday, only blowing warm air. Not the ideal situation when it’s 90 degrees outside every day. We have (had) an old system to begin with, and any fixes they did would have been temporary at best, and just need fixed again in a few months. Since Ian is tired of dealing with having to get this fixed so… Read the rest ⇒


Taking Stock

dream-wall

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. These pictures are all things I see from my desk. Making : more stencils to continue playing with this new-to-me screen printing method. Cooking : waffles, sometime this weekend, to take our new waffle iron for a spin. Drinking : French vanilla cappuccino. Reading: working my way through Northanger Abbey (a modern Austen adaptation), and also Archon (a YA paranormal). Wanting: to just curl up… Read the rest ⇒

Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

  I took a screen printing workshop this weekend. It was a stenciling method I hadn’t tried before, and was a lot of fun. It wouldn’t work for all of my designs, but for some it will be a much quicker way of making a screen. And I learned some tips about squeegees and ink, so all in all a good use of a Groupon and a Saturday afternoon. And I came up with a new design for the purposes… Read the rest ⇒


Send Me Your Photos

Send me your photos.

I’m finally doing something I probably should have done as soon as I opened up my shop and had my first sale: a customer photo gallery. Because I love to see how my creations live out in the world! So now, if you send in a high-quality photo of yourself wearing the shirt you ordered, or your wall sporting the art print, I’ll add it to the customer gallery on Facebook & possibly feature it here on my blog. You’ll… Read the rest ⇒
