Celebrating America’s Birthday

It has been a while since we have posted in our blog. But, the studio has been quite busy! Our feature photo promotes the heat press shirts that were completed for the 4th of July holiday.  Yes, of course, I had to do one for my grand daughter……lol…….and excitedly, my son and girlfriend are expecting in December. Needless to say, this momma bear had to made something special for the new addition to our family.  I ended up making two designs for expecting mommas and gave one to my nephew’s wife.  It is such a wonderful time for this retired grandma for sure.

How many of you have grand children that are reading this post?  I never thought I would be so impacted by the arrival of a grand child.  But, they melt your heart.  The feel of their little hands in yours, their arms reaching out to you, or burying their heads in your chest……need I say more?  This is the best time of my life right now and I am trying to absorb as much as I can.

For those that follow this that would like the designs please email me at eighthavenuedesign@gmail.com and I will give you access to the designs for the three shirts.

Happy 4th of July!

Hearts, Kisses, and Candy Wishes

The studio is full of Valentine’s day fabric and designs with hearts and candy.  I love the colors of red, white, pink and pastels, and at the same time spreading the love. Don’t you? I have created two little designs for those Cricut and Silhouette users.  I placed them on bandannas for my grand daughter. But they can also be made for your pets or even placed on clothing for your little ones – heck even for yourself to wear!

The great thing about designing these is that my years of art classes get used and I can remind my 80 year old dad that my money and time from classes is really being used. Can you guess which color theory and design key I used for the bandanna in the picture?  How about you leave your thoughts in the comment section below and come back tomorrow and I will tell you.  LET’S HAVE SOME FUN!
