Normally I struggle coming up with something to blog about, but tonight I actually had to choose between a few things (a video of my parrot waving my crochet hook around like a light saber, an image of a new design I've been working on, and the screenprinting related post that follows). Fortunately, my inherent laziness...err, efficiency won out (the first two would have required posting videos and images online that weren't already there, and this use of time was deemed inefficient by my late-night sleepy-head self) and ultimately made my decision process easier than anticipated.
Anyway, my happy happy happy dance (and yes, it is 3 happies--that's unsual for me, so take note, any would-be biographers of my ever-scintilating life) is about my having found the extremely wonderful local etsian Robin, who is a screenprinter (among other things). I've been wanting to screenprint my own apparel, pillow cases, etc. for a while now (I far prefer supporting another etsian to supporting cafepress and zazzle) and my crafty dreams have now been answered--yippee!
Keep an eye out for pictures soon of the screenprints we're collaborating on. In the meantime, I'm including an example of one of her current screenprinted items from her etsy shop, FacesAreFunny. I wish I was a small so I could fit into this bette davis skirt (she uses thrift store items to be more eco friendly, which I love--unfortunately it means cool items aren't always there in my size).
