Toast, Monkeys and Neon Shirts

It has been a week for toasting monkeys (see the definition for ‘monkey-toasting’ here).

In between all the chores, administrative work, and carting kids around to various appointments, I did actually manage to get a large chunk of printing done (giving myself a virtual pat on the back as I type this).

I have started work on the kids’ t-shirts for this Spring/Summer, and have been printing waves onto bright, neon shirts  in anticipation of lazy days at the beach, I quite like the results so far. Printing is fun, I’m not sure I can say the same about phase two though – ironing the prints, and sewing on labels – pretty dreary. Hopefully I can bribe a few family members into some free labor!

I’m going to start making my coloring books next week. Look out for the photos, when I’m done.
