This weekend started out with a bang!  I found out that I was accepted into the business groups program at WashingtonCASH.  I’m so thrilled to have gotten into this program.  It kinda lit a fire under my bum.  I was able to get into the studio on Saturday and I got a lot printed up.  I was able to get all the ties printed and I even got 2 new tea towel designs burned to screens and printed.   Here’s the first new design (the pink color is not that bright).

And here’s the close up with the quote from Julia Child

And here’s one for the bacon lovers

And the close up:

And today I decided that I would cook.  I haven’t really spent time to cook a whole lot recently.  I am currently using the slow cooker to make some easy peasy italian turkey sausage chili.  I also made 2 different types of pesto – a cilantro pesto and an italian parsley pesto.  I froze the one and I used the cilantro on some chicken and pasta.  And I’m currently snacking on some fresh baked kales chips that I also made today.

And with that, I’m off to take a nice relaxing bath 🙂

I got up kinda early this morning so that I could get a head start on the day and all the work I wanted to get done.  I went to Ikea.  And it was quite possibly the fastest Ikea trip I have ever done.  I was in and out within 20 minutes.  I then headed over to get more ink for printing and get gas in the car, and then back home to get back to work.  I decided that I would start with the ties.  By the time I finished I had about 20 ties done in less than an hour!  Here’s just a little sampling of the ties.

After I did the ties, started the water so I could tea stain some more fabric and then I got back to printing.  I printed up a few more towels.  Here’s one of the other designs.

Then I took a small break and made some pizza.  I know this week is going to be a busy one so I figured, why not whip up some pizza.  I did all this while watching the Superbowl (Way to go Packers)!   I got a bit tired of printing so I switched it up and got to work on a few more launder/care tag instruction cards.  I want to have a few cards that can be given to a guy.  So something not so feminine.  Which is where the two designs from yesterday came from.  Granted, the flowers are still a little girly, but what can I say…

So here’s the first design:

And here’s the other.  I kinda see this one more for little kids, or those of us who haven’t grown up yet 🙂

So as you can see it was a pretty busy weekend.  I only hope my work week isn’t as busy!  Next weekend is the Valentine’s Day show, so all of this new product will appear in my etsy store after the show.

Today was one busy day!  First I started the day off by wishing my Dad a happy birthday.  After that, it was right to work.  I had burned a few screens a while back and the plan was to use them on the tea towels.  So today was the day to get some of the printing done.  Here’s just two of the designs:

and here’s the other design

I also wanted to design a couple new launder/care tag instruction cards.  Something that was a bit more modern in style.  I came up with two designs.  Not sure if I like them yet.  I plan on doing one or two more designs and going from there.

Here’s the first design:

and here’s the second:

Here’s hoping tomorrow is just as productive!
