Last week I was selected by the team “Daily Dose of Handmade” to be BLITZED in Team Treasuries on Etsy. A very excited announcement that ended up in 8 treasuries that CandieInk was featured in during a week. I am truly honored and very excited to share with you the treasuries made.
What is an Etsy “Treasury”?
A treasury is a list of 16 items (or less) selected by the Treasury creator. Anyone with an Etsy login can create a Treasury. It is a great way to feature items you really like, or help other shop owners get more exposure. We are after all a community with very talented artists who supports each other reach the goals we are dreaming of.
To see the full treasuries (16 items) click the Treasury Titles and you will see how fantastic they all are 🙂 The creator of the different treasuries are also listed under the picture – click on their links to take a look at some other great shops!
So, I was not able to keep it hidden anymore… I have been working on some new items that belongs to my 2013 collection. And first in focus are the BOYS! It’s time I started making something for them… I am so EXCITED to introduce my “MUSIC IS MY EXPRESSION” T-Shirt for you all:
I made the this print and t-shirt after realizing how much music plays a role into how we express ourselves. Sometimes we can’t find our own words and sooner or later that one song comes on that says everything you wanted to say and more…
Music is a way to express a mood or strengthen a mood. When we work out we listen to a certain music to get some extra energy to make it through those last reps, when we are sad we listen to music that can comfort us, when we are happy… etc You get the point!
So Boys! This one is for you and for all those expressions you hold inside.
How it is made: I first created the design using Photoshop, then the image was transferred to a screen. To get the image on the t-shirt I use ink and a squeegee to spread the ink out on the screen while putting pressure on the screen so the ink will transfer to the t-shirt. When the ink has dried it must be heat treated in order to be water proof so I iron it for five minutes. Done! You got to love handmade 🙂
No matter where you see her, Mandy Moore always seems so comfortable with herself as a person and it shows in the clothes she picks. Relaxed, feminine, and pretty! Get the look for yourself or even better – for a lucky gal for Christmas!
Seen in September Sarah Jessica Parker was wearing this comfortable attire while walking hand in hand with her son. Boyfriend style jeans, Converse shoes, and a relaxed but yet feminine fit sweatshirt is a must for the fall, winter, and even next year’s spring look! Add a styled handbag to the mix and you have completely mastered the look!
