TV debut (short and sweet)

June 17, 2010
I'm soaking up the sun and enjoying my time off. I have been taking advantage of my free moments by working on some fun projects for my sisters' shower coming up next weekend! I've never made so many fabric flowers in a week before!

I wanted to share a fun little video that aired last week here in AZ on Fox 10 morning news. Creative Works Boutique got to show off some of their "muchness" and even though I wasn't on the show, our Cantaloupe Corner tees got some of the spotlight. 

The shirts at Creative Works aren't available anywhere else right now. They carry our Chandelier Chic Women's tee (the pink one on the wall), as well as the pretty turquoise tee with our birds-in-a-tree print, next to it.
See it in the video? (yay! we're on TV!!)

And. . . the sweet owners of this cute boutique requested some unique fabric blossom tees like the Fushcia Pink tee that Dawn is wearing in the video.  They also have some of our cute little girls blossom tees
I also have some other new tees with different Fabric Blossoms on them that will be sold at the boutique. The colors are fun and  so yummy!

If you are here in the Valley of the Sun, check out this video to see what Creative Works is all about!

Gone Fishin'

June 9, 2010

I consider myself a supurb multi-tasker. I'm not bragging, It's a survival skill I have had to learn since I had my kids. I'm sure all of you moms know what I'm talking about.

I often find myself cooking dinner, designing shirt graphics, blogging, reading to my children, and cleaning the house, and talking on the phone, all at the same time.

I really, REALLY enjoy Cantaloupe Corner! It has been a way to take a piece of myself and put it into an art form.  Now I know what it looks like inside my own head.  It's my own little happy place :)

Even though I can multi-task like a maniac, it doesn't mean that I have enough time to finish everything on my to-do list. Even if I did it all at the same time :)  And multi tasking doesn't give me much room to actually enjoy any of the zillion things I'm doing at any given moment.

I miss spending afternoons snuggling with my little cherubs, reading stacks of storybooks. I miss actually spending the time to make decent meals for my family. I really do love to cook! I miss being able to walk into a clean home where the laundry isn't an unclimbable mountian and the dishes are in the cupboards instead of the sink.  I long for the time to finish painting my studio and organize the heck out of it.

Being a business mom comes with a price.  But it is worth it!

I have made the difficult but necessary decision of temporarily closing our Etsy Shop, just for a little while, until I can start catching up on everything else. 

May, June, and July are the busiest months of the year in our household. We get to celebrate birthdays, our anniversary, more birthdays. . . and we will be having weddings (and showers) for 2 of my lovely sisters. Along with a slew of guests, a couple of trips, and 4th of July celebrations. . . we have a jam packed schedule for the next 4 weeks or so.

So I am going to let my squeegees rest a while so I concentrate on bridal shower decor, a birthday party for my sweet 4 year old, and prepping my home for my favorite people to come and stay.

If you need a t-shirt or onesie made, please email me and I will help you out the best that I can.  I'm sure I will be having internet withdrawels so emails are appreciated.

Thank you all for your support. I can't wait for July to get here so I can get back to work! Did I mention I LOVE my job?!

AND. . . .  In July, I may or may not have new toddler girls shirts . . .  just saying. . .

Chao for now!

{ Have you seen my elephant? }

June 3, 2010

I love a little randomness:

Q: Why did the elephant wear green shoes?
A: So he could hide in the grass!

Q: Why did the elephant paint his toenails red?
A: So he could hide in the cherry tree!

Q: Why did the elephant paint his toenails different colors?
A: So he could hide in the crayon box!

Q: Why did the elephant wear blue shoes?
A: Because his red ones were in the wash, of course!

Q: Why did the elephant lay on the ground with his feet in the air?
A: To trip birds!

These are my favorite jokes ever! Yes, my hubby makes fun of them {every day} but I still think they are hilarious!

Hope they made you smile.

I've been holding onto these designs for too long but I wanted them to debut with our new high quality tees. So no more waiting!

 Here are our newest Cantaloupe Corner designs!
(que AC/DC "Back in Black"  background music)

This first design popped into my mind a dozen times before I finally drew it out and made it real. It went through a few drafts before I finally fell in love with it. I call it "Flashback" because it looks retro 80's. Oh, and of course, it is made of lightning bolts.

When I was in high school (way back in the day), it was the cool thing to wear retro 70s gear.
you know, the return of bell bottoms, lime green, hippy flower prints.  We actually raided my parents closets and wore their old clothes! My dad had the most awesome forest green bell bottoms (yes, my dad's old clothes actually fit us.)

Today you see retro 80s stuff EVERYWHERE! I love the bright colors and slinky, comfy clothes.
This is kinda my tribute to the rockin' 80s  (minus the florescent yellow, big bangs,  and acid washed, tapered leg jeans.)

And. . .
Our next shop greenie is . . .

Look familiar? This is our "Depth of Love" tree print now available on Toddler Tees! I made one for my son and I find myself reaching for this shirt whenever it is clean. I love the design and the new shirts are just so darn irresitably soft.

Come welcome the new memebers of our Etsy shop by paying them a visit from time to time. They like that.
