Breaking out the Paint

Woo! So, I’ve been spending some time organizing and doing some behind-the-scenes sorts of things; nothing too exciting to photograph. However, tonight, I broke out the paints and printed my first new shirts since opening my shop! Very exciting.

It feels good to be back!

New Design!

Coming into motherhood (I’ve been here almost a year now), I knew that babies were prone to putting things in their mouths. Hubby and I work pretty hard to keep things in our home fairly safe for our little guy, but I wasn’t quite prepared for the reality of it all.

My babe’s tenacity and inquisitiveness (while wonderful and good traits that I do want to foster and grow in the long run) lead to my regularly fishing all sorts of strange things from his mouth!  Books and paper, ok, I sort of expected that. Shoes? Well, ok then. The other day I fished a half eaten Q-Tip from his mouth (happily it was a clean one), but then last week, he took a chomp out of our wall!  Then I knew: he must have the soul of a Billy Goat.

Thus this new Billy Goat design was born. Inspired partly from my child’s strange eating habits and partially because I have fond memories of the Billy Goat Gruff story, I decided this excitement needed to be immortalized in this new, very cute, design:

He certainly keeps me on my toes! But I do love him all the more for it 🙂
