State Fair T-shirts

Every year we coordinate the cousins when attending the Iowa State Fair.  This year's shirts are turquoise.  The girls shirts are sleeveless tanks with zebra accented straps.  For the boys shirts I choose standard t-shirts. 
When creating the design I cut and pasted clip art to resemble each one of the children. 


This was my second attempt at screen-printing.  I exposed the artwork for 20 minutes under the lamp and then washed the screen with a garden hose.  The screen wasn't perfect but did give us an acceptable end result.  More pictures to come when they wear the shirts in a few weeks.

Box Elder Bug Repellant

As a coordinator to help with crafts at our local Mom's group one year we decide the ladies would make children friendly recipe scrapbooks.  Each meeting the Mom's came together and created 2-3  4"x6" pages that would be placed in a small photo-album.  Once the year was over I continued to add more pages and create books for gifts.

4th of July Bulletin Board


This bulletin speaks for itself. I enjoy creating unique and eye catching boards for our church to help people think and celebrate our Christian faith.
