Wow … did I sleep through December ? ? ?
As if !
November & December … ReinventingOrdinary. etsy. com  … OMG !
My boss  ( such a slave driver …  she's really cute though)  had me working night and day.  
I don't think I slept from … Thanksgiving to Christmas.
Anyhoo … that's a story for another post .
Let me be the first to say …

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Okay … okay …  so it's already January 9th.  

How about …    HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR ???
I actually have no idea when that is either … well moving on.

JANUARY IS HERE !!!

I know that because it's … DOGGY CRATE COVER  TIME !

New REVERSIBLE  Lazybones  Covers are in the SHOP !

The … Dots on Dots Lazybones Cover
The … Dots & Stripes Lazybones Cover
The …  Damask & Stripe Lazybones Cover

variety of colors and prints.  Mix and Match … add a bed … even choose a
fabric to match your own decor.  Go wild … or be conservative … whatever
 your heart or your puppy's heart desires.

   Minky Crate Covers.
Minky  is always popular … and even though it is the most expensive

Don't know what it is about  JANUARY … but I can always set my "watch" ….

Father's Day...Giving Dad a Brand Name

Wednesday, June 19

Pin It

Don't know about you ... but Dad's can sometimes be hard to buy for.
Try as I may to find something meaningful  ... fun ... and original ...
I usually end up with the practical ... but boring ... gift certificate.

This year ... the day before I knew I had to put something in the mail ... 
it hit me ... in one of those 
"can't-sleep-cuz-my-head-keeps-thinking-of-new-DIY-ideas."

My Dad ... the
  "Chocolate Chip Cookie King" ...  
needed his own Brand.
 So onto my  Silhouette Cameo  I went.
Of course ... great-grandpas always use  love  as an ingredient ...
so why not use a...
 HEART.
Next ... what to call his brand ?
All the grandkids and great-grandkids call him "Papa" ...
so ...
"Papa's Pride."

I originally wanted to print some real stickers for his "cookie bags" on adhesive vinyl ...
but after trying to "Print & Cut" on the adhesive vinyl  ...  
 I realized the printing smeared on the vinyl.

Plan B ... print the decals on plain paper ... then glue them to the bags.
Papa also needed a matching shirt ... so ... fire up the
Tulip ScreenIt.
You have to start with a  black and white picture.
I printed the heart logo in black ink as big as the computer paper would hold.
After following the directions that come with this amazing machine ...
20 minutes later ... wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am ... my silk screen
was ready to go.
Using red  Soft Fabric Paint ... placing  wax paper inside 
the shirt to prevent seeping ...
 stretching the shirt taut on my counter ...
I used my squeegee and quickly printed my silk screen.
I added a few  red bags  for a bit of color and cut out a few
red vinyl hearts to seal the bags ... and voila ...
"Papa's Got a Brand New Brand."

For the cost of a few paper bags ... a tee shirt ... and one silk screen sheet ...
at last an original  Father's Day Gift.

I can't say enough about my
Silhouette Cameo and my   Tulip ScreenIt.
I use them all the time ... especially in my Etsy Shop.

By the way ... Papa Loves his new Brand!
