Made this Beautiful Baby's First Christmas shirt for a friends baby boy:) The Silver looks stunning, very nice for Christmas! Took 7 attempts to get my emulsion to work (think I know what I'm doing now) Hopefully they like this shirt! Now to make some company logo shirts for my mom:)

On the Pink Paisley blog they have some really sweet vintage style downloadable free Christmas Postcards!! My only problem was not knowing anything about Photoshop!!!! So I asked a good friend for some help!! After getting a short lesson I was able to make my Christmas Postcard, yeah! This year I didn't bother fighting with my dear hubby for a nice family photo to send out to family and friends, I decided to get a digital copy of the kids with Santa and send that instead!
Yesterday I made a nice centerpiece for my mom's Christmas party with some beautiful red and white roses and greenery, including pine, spruce and juniper but I was running late to get over and help make appetizers that I completely forgot to get a pict. until I was back home and ready for bed!

Yesterday I dragged the kids into the city to Buy my Yudu (A present from my dad for Christmas)
They were on sale:) $160 off and a free mesh screen and also there was a coupon for 15% off so I managed to get all the inks and other items needed to start creating!!! yeah! So today after doing more research I decided to give it a go! Went pretty well, learned a few thing and now I have a few more things to research!! I really think this will be a great toy!!! Just need some more practice! I used the Cricut to cut out the snowman on vinyl, layed it on the mesh screen, tapped around the image (so ink only is transfered through image) found a few old shirts to play with, applied ink and set it after letting it dry to touch... Sounds simple enough, but took a while longer than I anticipated!!! I made 5 shirts and this was the best image, ink is still wet in picture giving it a spotting look! Kids think this is GREAT!! I think making my own screen's will turn out better, but they are a lot more time consuming, so they'll have to wait a few more days!! I'm going to make a few company shirts for my Mom and her Hubby as they recently bought a business, hope they like:)
