Playing catch up!

I've been having screen printing withdrawals! I kept having issues with my screen so I just put it all on hold for awhile. Well, my pal Caitlin gave me the hook up tonight and helped me to FINALLY make a good and use-able screen! It's about time! Whoo! So I made up for lost time tonight and made 7 new shirts. Ahh, I missed it, I love screen printing. I even made shirts for my own boys!

I made this print (brown ink) on both white and blue shirts for my little men.

Here's a new one for me and I LOVE it! From the bible verse Psalm 139:14 " I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

I LOVE this little girl! I printed her on a couple different shirts and she is so cute!

And I think this is one of my new favorites (my other being the ASL I Love You). Originally my idea for this shirt was intended for an "oops/surprise" baby. My oldest was a honeymoon surprise and I have always wanted him to have a funny shirt that indicates that fun little fact.
I had a few different ideas that were more wordy, and I finally decided to just keep it simple and say "Surprise!" As I was printing this one it hit me -- How often do mama's want to surprise someone with the news of a new pregnancy? Whether it be daddy or the grandparents. How FUN would it be to give this adorable onesie to the unsuspecting recipient and just sit back and wait for that light to come on. 'Surprise! We're having a baby!!' And of course baby can wear it when s/he is born!
(I also think this would be a cute onesie for those parents who aren't finding out the sex of the baby :-))
Anyway, that was my eventful evening :-) I had fun and it feels good to print again! Yay!! I hope to list a couple of these tomorrow. All of the shirts I printed are on my Flickr.


  1. Love the "surprise!" shirt! Ithink most of us have at least one child that could apply to. :)

  2. I love the surprise shirt! That would have been great for Jack - since we didn't know he was a Jack. Poor kid had so much green and yellow in his early life (early life...haha, he's ten weeks old). But I love it, clever idea...keep 'em coming.
