Screen printing!

For those of you who don't know I really LOVE to screen print because it's so relaxing and the entire process is so satisfying. Well, a few months ago I was not very healthy and I had to go through a lot of medical treatments in order to get better. It didn't give me much time or energy to the things I love and to even keep my shop up and running was a bit of a struggle at times. Seeing all my screen printing equipment sitting there just made me kind of sad so I packed it all up and put it away.

About a month ago I bought a Yudu Machine and I have been so busy with making inventory for my first craft show, wholesale accounts, just keeping the shop running and the website updated that I didn't even have a chance to open it until earlier this week! I finally pulled all my jars of ink, emulsion and squeegees back out and I am having a lot ton of fun with it! I've made my first screen and have been test printing on various types of fabric and old shirts.

The best parts of today so far.

Suki all snuggled up in my blankets.

My friend Julie brought me a cute Muk Muk plushie. Do you think he's too big to hang from my lanyard? haha Also, my team Canada hoodie which I paid a ridiculous amount for. We better win tonight!
Go Canada Go!

These are the best cookies I have ever had in my entire life. Here is the recipe so go make some.

To sum up my first craft show experience:

 Thanks to my Mom, Bee, Val and Dav for helping and thanks to my family who came to support me :D

I had the cutest little girl as my first customer. She bought a froggy ring but she was a little bit camera shy and I couldn't get a good photo. She's the daughter of one of the ladies of

I heard two japanese girls repeatedly saying "kawaii" as they chatted in Japanese and looked at all the cute stuff on my table. It made me giggle.

I sold a handbag! Yippee!

I had a customer tell me that the little girl on my business card looks like me. Which is good because it is me!

Lesson learned: always check your money. I paid a toonie ($2) to learn this lesson. Actually, I'm not sure if it was a customer who gave me this or if it was in the roll that I got from the bank. Anyone know what the coin on the left is? I can't even read it.

Update! I figured it out with the help of some people in the Etsy forums. It's a Thai coin. 10 Baht. Worth about $0.30 haha

It was a good experience and I look forward to my next show at the end of March. :)
Hopefully I will get around to photo taking this week and get some new stuff in the webshop.

Stamp update.

As you know, I have been working on stamps and sometimes they come out great and other times not so great but the majority of times I have been having a problem with bubbles. These teeny tiny little bubbles have caused so many problems that I decided to order some vulcanized rubber stamps for you guys instead. Bad for me for investing in clear stamps and good for you because the stamps I'm ordering are great quality. Only thing is, we have to sit and wait patiently for them to come.

I've been stamping bags for shows and I packed a few mystery goody bags too.

All strung.

February Design Challenge: Polaroid Pendants

If you've been following me on facebook you'll already have seen this photo below. I have been working on a new series of polaroid pendants that will debut at the craft show I am doing in 2 weeks. My February challenge is to design a spring themed polaroid pendant! It could be a photograph, a doodle, an illustration or anything as long as it relates to spring. It must measure at least 3" x 3" inches square at 300 dpi to ensure print quality. If your design is chosen as the winner I will personally make you a polaroid pendant featuring your design. The challenge will run until Feb 28th. Email all submissions with the subject line: February Design Challange to
