Cute and little

Are two words that will automatically kill any sort of "compliment" that someone makes about your business. I'm not denying my goods are cute, and I'm certainly not the star bucks of screen printing (and never would want to be). My life is full of well wishers who are curious about what I do even if they don't "get it" themselves. I've always had a hard time describing what it is that I do, it's often rambled and met with blank stares. It's really hard for people to belive that people are willing to fork over their hard earned money for my "cute little" goods. They think it's crazy that I'm earning a living that doesn't involve a gray cubiclue and a paycheck from the man every two weeks. Heck it was hard for me to belive it when I first started, but I know better now and work hard at making this my full time gig. I remember the first time I handed out a business card to a co-worker and they thought it was so cute that I had business cards. Hello!?! I run a business, sometimes I think they're expecting a piece of construction paper with glitter and my name spelled out crookedly in crayon. Now that would be "cute".

Goings Ons

Lots going on lately, which is why I've been so light with the old posts lately. Today has been a lazy day and I haven't had one in a while. I worked on my newest creation this afternoon before stopping for a tea break, and a wee blog post. Speaking of tea I've taken a break from coffee shortly after getting and falling in love with my french press. I still use it to brew my loose leaf teas (today it's red hot from teanoir's etsy shop, it's so good!) I adore my french press so and know that I'm not alone. Yet there really isn't enough kitchen wares that really proves that affection for thy beloved press. So....I came up with these little numbers to adorn the kitchens of french press fiends everywhere!
There's also the tree top tunics that are now available in my shop! They are inspired by my early morning outings. I love how the tree tops look against sky and have been wanting to try this idea out for quite some time.

I've also been perusing the awesome wall graphics at etsy shop Michelle Christina
She carries some of the most detailed unique wall graphics including this ditty that is calling out to be put in my kitchen but in red and white of course.

And really how sweet are these sweetheart graphics?

Off to finish up a wallet pattern I'm working on. More on that laters.
