Photo Shoot FAIL!

Today it is HOTTER THAN HADES in Northeast Iowa – we are expected to get some severe weather this afternoon. The humidity is almost super uncomfortable but the show must go on! I needed to update my listings on my Etsy shop with my new shirts! To do that, we needed pictures. I got the boys dressed, myself dressed, enlisted my mom and we were off to the cemetery (right next to my dad’s grave site) to take pictures by the corn field.

It seems like it’s always so hot out whenever I need to take picture! Today was no different. The boys were NOT HAVING IT either! Mom of course thought it was hilarious. I on the other hand was not as amused. Trying to get Gannon to cooperate went…well…like this:

Carver was far more occupied with hiding in the corn…

But we FINALLY got the pictures we needed! These Etsy listings are live – we have a very limited quantity of each shirt as it is a test run to see how they go over! The Raglan tees are just a bit more expensive because the shirt itself costs more. The Youth sizes are 2T through Youth Small – Carver and Gannon are both wearing a 4T and are $22 each.

I’m wearing my tried and true size Large as I do in all of my shirts. I have gotten a few requests for baseball tees because some ladies don’t like showing off their arms. These tees are $32 each as again, the shirts do cost a little more money for me to create.

I’ve got a sale running right now on my shop – here are all the $20 shirts that would make GREAT Christmas presents. I’ve already picked up a few gifts…have you started yet?

Oh, and these three shirts were out of stock and they are all now back IN STOCK:

A few housekeeping items, you’ll see have added a new SHOP HERE tab to my site that will take you directly to my Etsy shop! Also, some people have said the pictures aren’t coming up in their emails like they used to – I have no control over this, your best bet is to just come to to see the full post.

Also, Mom hosted a giveaway on her blog a few weeks ago, the winner is Jane Shackleton! Please email and we will get you your shirt of choice!

There’s the Etsy shop update, here’s a sneak peak at my newest design, which saying do you like best?

    I like “out here in the rural world” because we are all not farmer’s daughters. I would think it would appeal to more people. Love your tshirts…..they are so soft and comfy! Did the sandals fit?
