Give me some credit!

September 16, 2009

My sis is behind mchenwears, some pretty fabulous self-designed and printed clothing, from t-shirts to onesies to t-dresses … and she’s celebrating her one year Etsy-versary with a fun giveaway where you can win a $50 credit at her online store. The draw happens tomorrow (sorry for the late post) so you still have time to enter by visiting here.

Good luck to all those who enter!

And here’s my CSOTD for today:

My super talented sis, Emily, is at it again with another new and exciting project of hers: she’s picked up painting after a 10-year hiatus to partake in “Word Up”, a group exhibit hosted at CycleLogik in Ottawa. Check out her very cool, colourful and amazing diptych done up in acrylic paint, Sharpies and pencil. Way to go, Em … as always, you WOW and inspire me! 🙂

And for today’s Creative Something of the Day (CSOTD):

My sister recently wrote a post about her honeybee rescue so I thought I’d add to it with this cute/funny clip that shows off some stinging dance moves and promotes a thoughtful message at the same time (courtesy of Haagen Dazs’ loves Honey Bees campaign):

Love them costumes and bee hats!

Just had to shout out some more: in addition to her new shirt designs, my sister Emily now has a line of clothing for children (t-shirts) and babies (onesies). There’s going to be some pretty stylin’ kids around soon!

Today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) would probably be better named “Pirate Zen”?

Must talk/shout about my uber-talented sister Emily who just launched her 2009 re[verb] line of wears. As you’ll see, she has four very cool designs to start, with four more to come. She’ll be selling these babies in Ottawa this Mother’s Day weekend at the following events:

1) Ladyfest “Tarts ‘n’ Crafts” Spring Sale — Saturday, May 9th, 10 am – 5 pm @ the Jack Purcell Community Centre; and

2) Hintonburg “ArtsPark” — Sunday May 10th, 10 am – 4 pm @ Parkdale Market

Way to go, Em!!! Can’t wait to see everything in person!

She’ll be posting available styles/sizes/colours next week to her Etsy shop so only a bit more waiting to do — I’ll let you know the when the information is listed.

Now for today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day):
