And we will do it again next year.

Last year Mark and I donated some of our shirts to a organization that would auction them off and use the money to help others. We really wanted to do it againt this year, but I could not remeber where to send it.

Yesterday I got an email from them asking if we would like to donate again. YES! I am really happy they got in contact with us. I printed a bunch of shirts last night and heat set them tonight, I'm gonna package em up and send them out tomorrow.

"Housing Works is renowned for addressing the needs of people living with AIDS that other organizations deem “to challenging to serve.” By offering a comprehensive array of health,
housing, AIDS prevention, legal and case management services, we help our clients to empower themselves and actively manage their HIV."

If you want to donate go to the Housing Works website. If you would like to read some stories of how they have helped people, go here.

I always wanted to be a Disney voice.

Etsy Midweek Picks

Lets start something new shall we? A couple of my favorite Etsy picks to help us get through the rest of the week.

Vintage No Parking Sign
2009 Wall Calendar
Mini Wall Tea Pot Clock
Flock Hoodie
Naked Stackers

Would you like to see something awesome?

I always thought that science-fiction movies came completely from someones imagination, but here are some real images from Life hosted by Google from the Apollo missions. They look like they were taken on some movie set. Or maybe it is Nasa who is influenced by Hollywood?

UPDATE: Nasa now has a twitter page so you can follow history being made.

Our new shirts

I really cant get in to American Apperals photos, but I do love their shirts and the many, many colors they come in. Here are the colors we decided on.

Coming soon.

The TealTown revamp is still in full force. There is a shipment of American Apparel shirts on its way and I already have three new designs Mark and I both really like. I can't wait to show them to you. But for now I will leave you with this.

More etsy love, Yokoo

Maybe it is just the freezing cold weather but I have found myself looking at snuggly stuff on etsy lately and dreaming about how warm it would be. I really like Yokoo's Prembroke Cowl.

We could start having dance parties!

Mark and I are trying to stop our pointless buying urges but I cant help but think disco globes are awesome. I think they would make for some amazing pictures.

I just cant help myself

The Daily Bunny


I have decided I am going to revamp TealTown over the break. We need to clean the studio and the front room and get the organized so everything is exactly where we need it to be. Plus, we are now going to be printing on American Apparel shirts. Wooo! I started last night and cleaned out the studio. Well most of the studio. The closet is still a mess but I plan on getting that all done tonight. While cleaning last night I found a whole bunch of shirts we had printined in anticipation of either wearing them or selling them and now we have so many shirts we dont need anymore. So TealTown is having its first sale. I documented all of the shirts, bags and scarves I found last night and posted the to the shop at a discounted price.

I do it to myself and thats what really hurts.

I finished up Fall semester 08 yesterday and as I sat on the couch I still felt like I need to be doing something, like there was still a couple of things I hadn't finished. But I didn't. I had absolutely nothing I needed to do. It was weird. It was like before school started when I had time to do other things. Sooooo I went on a run. And part of me feels like it was awesome. I really do miss running it was relaxing and it made me feel much better physically and mentally. The other part of me thinks that running in winter is the worst idea I have ever had. Its freezing, hard to breath oh and I haven't run since October so I again suck at running.

Here is the picture Mark took of me when I came in yesterday because he said I looked "cute". I think I look like one of those idiots you see running in the winter. But I hope I can keep it up.

Tree Decorating 2008

Last weekend was very busy for us. Last Saturday was my families annual decorating the tree party. My extended family has always lived at least two hours away from us so we were always with them over Christmas day. Making a big deal out of decorating the tree is kind of a way of giving us our own special day, it started all the way back when Mom and Dad first started dateing. Then I think it was just a good excuse to have a yummy meal.

This is what I think of when I think of Christmas. Not the opening the presents but yummy food and decorating cookies and family.

Baby Cokes! A staple of the annual event.

Cheesey potatoes. A new staple of the event in honor of Mark joining the family.

We got a little messy decorating the cookies.

Ending the night with The Muppet Christmas Carol.

Amelia Handscomb
had done some pretty awesome promo pictures for Bret and Jemaine

Christmas in Liberty

Donna and Jim in front of my many prints.

Making Holiday ornaments.

Everybody deserved some home made pie that was donated.

Half price jewelry sale. We got three sets of earrings, one bracelet and one necklace for $2.50.

It's a shame we didn't get a picture of Haley pretending not to like me too.

This is my favorite shot of the day, Donna took this one.
