taking care of biz-ness

many of my readers know that one of my hobbies is designing and making silk-screened tshirts for kids (and adults).  my original inspiration was the lack of cool designs available for boys.  not all boy moms love sports and trucks!  i started off painting the shirts, and then mr p was awesome enough to gift me with a yudu screenprinter, and i was able to expand my creations (see right ———->)

for a while i was on a roll, making lots of shirts and selling some of them, mostly to family, but that still counts right?  then i had the squirticus and i had to cut back a little.  but lately i have been feeling inspired to make a few new designs.  maybe the summer/spring has gotten into my veins!

rough draft of hedgie

of course the boys need one or two new tshirts for summer!  and maybe one or two will sell.  and i have a really good time doing it, so that is really all that matters.

here is my draft of a hedgie design i made for one of my friends, and of course i had to design an “ephieee” for the squirm.  my next subject is owls!  hoot hoot!!

i also wanted to share the tshirt i made for mr p.  first in a line of philosphy tshirts!!

thanks to gandy for the pics of mr p wearing his “a is a” shirt!

  1. Wow! Fabulous! If I had children or spouse I’d buy from you!

  2. I have seen the yudu but never ventured into getting one – nice designs and nothing is better than handmade!
