update and a Custom Designed T-shirt!

Hi everyone!  Yes, I'm still alive.  I have been in such a creative slump and I can't seem to shake it.  I know part of it is this lovely cool spring weather we are having.  I know that the hot summer days will soon be here so I've been outside enjoying our unusually cool spring with the dogs.  I have been working in my flower beds too.  Lots of weeding and mulching has been done, and now I'm being rewarded with lots of pretty blooms in my flower bed!

Another part of what's got my creativity on a hiatus is the upcoming floor installation.  We finally have a price for everything and have our tiles on order.  This has thrown Brock and I into demo mode!  We are removing the tile and linoleum that was on the floor under the tiles,  plus scraping the paper that didn't come up.  We are moving all of the furniture out into the garage and bedrooms.  Before we can move some things however, they have to be emptied into boxes.  This is almost like a total house move!  I think it will be really nice when it's done, but for now it is just a lot of work.

I really do hope that my muse comes back soon!  Squigglefly has such an awesome new release coming up in May!  We have two new artists to introduce!  Be sure to follow the design team's blogs to see some wonderful samples.  While my creativity is on hold, their's has been blooming like the flowers in my garden!  Speaking of Squigglefly - they have a new challenge on their blog that begins today!

Recently I was given the opportunity to try making a custom t-shirt at Dress United.   I was really impressed with how easy and fun it was to do!  They have a huge selection of styles, brands, and colors to choose from.  You can upload your own design, text, or photos or you can choose from hundreds of designs they have on the site.  I chose to upload my own design!  I'm all about advertising for Squigglefly when I can, so I uploaded their logo for my shirt.

Doesn't it make a cute shirt design?   If you want, you can also add a design to the back of the shirt!  Once you have your shirt designed how you like, you simply sit back and wait for it to be delivered.  My shirt arrived in such a short time!  I was really impressed.  I'm also impressed with how well the shirt holds up to washing and ironing!

I think a custom designed t-shirt would make a great gift for anyone, and wouldn't it be great for family reunions, bridal and bachelor parties, and even companies?  The prices are so reasonable!  The  Dress United company is graciously allowing me to give all of my readers a 30% discount on designing your shirt - AND you will get free shipping in the United States!  To get your very own custom designed t-shirt, just go to  Dress United and type in the code BLOG30OFF4U.

I do have a cute little project I made for my boss's daughter that I will share with you tomorrow.  Please continue to be patient with me while I deal with this floor thing and try to find my muse!

Great picture, I think I like the person wearing the shirt the best! Glad you're enjoying the spring, but I sure miss seeing what you're up to!

I'm loving that shirt and will go check it out for gifts and of course for me! Thank you Holly - btw, about that muse. Don't worry cause rainy days are coming and that's when I hunker down in the craft room. We actually planted potatoes, moved rhubarb and put some new strawberry shoots in a new bed this morning before rain - now I can go play. I love that panelling in that room behind you too! :)
