Gettin' Crafty

Something I love to do that I rarely have time to is make crafts. Oh, I have time to start them, it's the finishing part that I can't seem to find the time for. Several years ago, a friend and I decided we were going to start a little craft business and see where it went. I even went to a class on how to start a small business. We had a name, Two Peas in a Pod, and we ordered bags that we hand stamped to put our merchandise in, we bought our supplies and got crafting. I even purchased a sewing machine to make my life easier. Unfortunately, our business was short lived and we only had 1 party at my house where we sold our goods. We each made enough to cover our expenses and that's all we wanted at that point. She and I both secretly would love to do it again some day but I think we'd both agree that we'd let someone else do the manufacturing this time!

I found these adorable shirts on Script and Scribble's website. They were adorable until I saw the outrageous price tag - $42! I immediately thought to myself, "I can do that." The hardest part was finding the plain white t-shirts but the actual production was too easy. I found that I had more pink, girly fabric than boys, so I made Colin's girlfriend (my business partner's daughter) a shirt as well. Here's theirs:

and here's mine:


  1. Oh my goodness! These are too darn cute! You are a crafty goddess! LOVE THEM!

  2. Sidney loves hers!! We have to get them in their shirts together! Someday we'll sell our crafts.... Remind me when we might have time in our lives again?!
