New Bags . . . .

Ok ~ here they are ~ and they are available at our ETSY Store as promised.

The designs are cut from commercial grade StripFlock Vinyl
and are heat pressed onto the canvas using a commercial grade heat press.

I have one of each for myself ~ I have waaaaay too
many projects to have only one bag! LOL

Showed my son, Justin, and daughter-in-law, McCall,
a decorative wood block set of a raven sitting on top
of a wood block with the word "Spooky" on it.

They told me how much they liked it and McCall suggested
that another word I could use would be "Nevermore."
Okay, I didn't get it ~ it was a, "Duh" moment and they very nicely
said it was what the Raven said in the poem by
Edgar Allan Poe ~ HOW PERFECT!

So the decorative wood block sets will be going up soon and so will this!!!

Thanks McCall and Justin!!!!!

Well, Gary and I finally took the plunge
and bought our business a
MAXX 15 x 15 Digital Heat Press!

So here is a picture of my first press ~
I've wanted an apron to use in my studio
for quite some time now ~ viola!!!

This was done with black StripFlock Vinyl
and then I added fabric paint to show my pallet colors.

So fun and boy, will I get a lot of use out of it!

Now to get busy and start pressing for our ETSY store.

Just relaxing . . .

This is by far the best way I know how to relax!
Cool thing is, I ALWAYS have a piece of art as a result.

How will you relax today?

More Pumpkins!

I drew this ZIA maybe four years ago and finally had this "Aha" moment
(always while taking a shower ~ I think there has been a study about this!)
so I created a stencil from my image.

The first picture is the original,

the second is "Jack" painted with white fabric paint,

the third is "Jack" in black heat-transfer vinyl.

Watch out! I'm on a roll!!!!!
These will be available in my ETSY store soon!
