This is totally another throw-away post, but I want these!

Pantone Christmas Ornaments

Pantone Christmas Ornaments


I have always wanted to learn how to screenprint, because I love the results. I stumbled upon this tutorial for mini silk screens over at the Craft blog. I love it, and I can see lots of different applications for it. I’m going to have to do some for myself.

I have to be honest in that this is a hard week for me to do any serious design writing. My husband is in Europe until next Wednesday, and I’m home taking care of my three year old. My brain is complete mush, and the only things going through my head concern my child.

Finding ways to maintain creativity around a child is sometimes difficult. I try to bring creative things into our life, but he’s not really interested. He mostly wants to play with cars, and he wants me to play with cars with him. It’d be nice if he was into art projects. Then I could at least get some sketches done while he was doing his own stuff. But it’s cars. Cars, cars cars.

All this is to say that my posts may be a little, well, lackluster for the next week.

If you do a search on google for “do a barrel roll” something fun happens.

And yes, this is bit of a throw away post.
