open for business!!!


I've been talking about it ever since Open Studios in April. I've been working on it since I got home from Rosemont. And now? Now its finally up and running...



My etsy shop is stuffed full and waiting for YOU to pay it a visit. Here's what you'll find there:

(1) Some more of my 8x8 wall art pieces. There are only a couple up there now but there are more waiting for me to wrestle good photos of.

(2) Thermofax screens galore! There are 17 ready to print designs all set to be put to work printing your items. The designs come from your's truly, Leann Meixner, Jackie Lams, Michelle Sposito, and Jeanelle McCall.

(3) And if none of those designs strike your fancy, there are plenty of opportunities to make a screen from one of your own photographs or drawings.

(4) Tons and tons of paint colors. I sell Plaid's Simply Screen screen printing paint - my personal favorite and I hope it will soon be your's too.

(5) A frequent buyer program - buy five screens and get the sixth one for 50% off. There's also bulk pricing for those of you who want to buy 10 or more screens at one time.

Basic screen printing tutorial

Always wanted to do screen printing but think there is some sort of mysterious secret to it? I'm here to tell you not true. Its super easy and to prove it, I made a video showing you how. Of course, YouTube put a wrench into my plans by not letting me upload the whole thing at one time (that pesky ten minute time limit is a bugger). So I had to split it into two parts.

Here they are (go here if you want to see them full size):

Winners from survey

Way back in this post I asked you all to take a survey about what you were looking for when buying thermofax screens. You all did an awesome job! As promised, I randomly chose three people from the comments that were left on that post and each one of the winners gets to pick a *free screen* from the shop! They can be ready to print designs or a custom screen.

The winners are!

Joanie Boyce of Mixing it Up with Quilting
Diane Seamans of DSigns by DS
Michele of Textile Traveler



And there you have it. Lots of work getting ready but I think it looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

Hope there is something there that interests you and as always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Congratulations Lynn! Your work on Etsy is wonderful and the screen designs are really nice and fresh. I even learned new stuff from your two screen printing videos and I've done it for years.
