hand painted, Misc. Creations!, sewing, wood frame -

I've been mailing out lots of online orders. Today while standing in line at the post office I remembered reading about this idea, just wish I remember who to give credit to for the brilliant idea. I also remembered I had a perfect book at home waiting to be recycled into packages, while reading to Arlin last night we together learned half the book pages were missing?! Didn't make for such a good story. but take some recycled bubble wrap, 2 pages from the book (The Little Engine That Could in this case) and top stitch three sides, leaving an...

hand painted, Misc. Creations!, wood letters -

Remember the start of this project? Letters to spell POLKADOT for the store front window... Chad sprayed a layer of clear coating on them after I finished all the touch up painting...this will protect the letters from scratching and sun fading. the drying station outside (Stella's old table) today was all about getting down to business! Above I had to brainstorm ways to make each letter hang-able for customer to hang on her own. I bought some drapery (london shade) plastic rings to attach to the ribbon for nails to have some where to latch onto. So first I sewed the ribbon folded...

Baby Lux Business, hand painted, i dig chicks onesie, Running -

"i dig chicks" New design: size 18 months Buy here... @ Polkadot  or email me for another size request! tyler@babyluxdesign.com What a great day! I'm finally sitting down for the first time! Busy, busy...I talked to Arlin's Montessori teacher this morning when I dropped him off about the art in their classroom or should I say the lack of art. Arlin's in a new classroom and since the school is relatively new all the classroom environments have yet to be decorated. I offered to donate a painting and Mrs. Lindsay (the Captain's teacher) was so thrilled! She was very expressive...
