B-Hive Designs

Lovely T's for the ladies and the little ones too! These T's are so comfortable and effortlessly stylish. Barbara Soulé draws and prints her nature inspired designs on cotton. My little guy loves his animal T so much that I almost have to beg him to take it off for washing. A little reverse psychology does the trick;) Cruise by to check out her new designs.

Supplies to create something awesome.

My cute owl from the white elephant party.

We all silk screened a shirt to take home.
What party will have supplies on hand to create fabulous name tags? What party has gifts for guests that can be traded for? Fabulous drinks? Shirts to silk screen? Awesome creative minds to pick? Only the Summit of F*&ki#g Awesome (Leah hooked me on the phrase). We had an awesome time chatting and crafting with great people at this party! Thanks Leah for letting me be your -Plus One;)
