Well, the theme for 2006 is organize and the easiest way to organize is to simplify.

I got my mini xyron magnet/sticker machine Saturday. Wooo. I'm so totally hooked.
I also got some lazertran paper from Dick Blick. I got the kind that requires varnishing unfortunately. I thought it was the heat set kind. Has anyone else tried this stuff?
So far, the results are mixed. I'm hoping the stickers are better than the magnets.

I took the plunge today and ordered some photo emulsion silkscreening supplies from Dick Blick. My half bath will serve as a dark room and by this weekend, I hope to be screening ninjas instead of heat pressing them. I haven't done any silk screening since high school. (yikes)
**my first batch of keychains are up on Etsy. huzzah.

KiWi Cuties, my line of tees and bibs, is now exclusively available through Etsy at Kiwicuties.etsy.com. It was saddening to make a break from the first site to give me a chance but it needed to be done.
Now, I have to decide if I'm going to continue with my children's designs or if I should concentrate on my ninja series.

On the advice of the brilliant and fabulous folks at Craftster, I've decided to branch my ninjas out beyond the t-shirt realm. Now, the question becomes....where to? Stickers? Magnets? Key chains? A while back, I made a shrinky dink charm bracelet out of ninjas but the shrinky plastic is so thin. Maybe if I super glued two of them back to back....
With great sadness, I decided to leave one of the webshops that I was associated with. I realize that it takes time for a startup to ...well, start up, but I honestly don't think that my style meshed with the rest of the designers. I wish them all the very best of luck.
I'm actually considering abandoning my 'children' designs. My ninja series is the most popular design on my Etsy site so I think I'll concentrate on new ninja designs.

Well, lately, I've been brought back to my geekiest roots squealing all the way by the new Doctor Who. I thought that after Christopher Eccleston, I'd never be able to love another Doctor again (of course, I thought that after Tom Baker, too) but this new Doctor has renewed my enthusiasm.
However, there won't be any new episodes until Spring now. ARGH!
I guess I'll have to watch reruns of Deep Space Nine and and Angel to tide me over.
oh, yeah, and bring back Captain Jack Hotness...i mean, Harkness.

I made this design for my daughter who is a total daddy's girl. My husband, upon seeing the creation, commented that the t-shirt gal ought to have her legs crossed. Is he right? Is she looking all 'Sharon Stone' in the image?
Or is my husband merely insane?
