    MARVEL UNIVERSE LIVE! AGE OF HEROES

    We attended the Marvel Universe Live! Age of Heroes and had a blast. Previously, the only shows that we had attended here where the Disney On Ice shows, so I wasn't sure what to expect -- especially having a 3 year old little girl -- but let me tell you -- it was fantastic! My son, who is 7 and my daughter were captivated from the 1st minute to the very last second. When the show was over, my daughter exclaimed "I want more!".  Both kids were into it, asking questions about the different characters and watching the story unfold.  If you saw the show, let me know what you thought! The most memorable part for me was when they did the fire show as well as the beautiful aerial acrobatics! If you haven't seen it yet, the next time they are in town, definitely try to catch a show!

    Happy Friday - Busy Week - My First Sale - Loving my #Cricut

    Happy Friday Everyone!

    Some weeks seem to go by so quickly and others it seems like forever trying to make it to the end of the week. This week was the latter. All week felt like a race to the Friday finish line, except the race was in slow motion.  It is Friday night and I am beat, exhausted, done. I want to close my eyes and not leave the bed all weekend -- BUT.....that can't happen. This weekend, as it seems is going to be an action packed "fun" filled weekend.  All of the actives we are part of seem to be winding down. My son has his last baseball game of the season Saturday morning. Afterwards, the team will have a mini party and picnic.  We'll then rush home for nap time for my daughter, after which, we will attend a gymnastics showcase my son will be taking part in.  Sunday morning, will be my son's last Cub Scout meeting for this school year. They'll be celebrating by having a picnic in the park. Similar to Saturday, we'll rush home for nap time for my daughter and this time it will be my daughter's gymnastics showcase in the afternoon.  Just thinking about the weekend tires me. I'm sure compared to others, our weekend doesn't look so bad. And probably, if we would have had an easy week, it would seem exciting. But, it's just been a busy week and a busy weekend. 

    My creative outlet and makes me happy is designing things in photoshop and making things on the Cricut.  I am very excited that I got my first order for a pregnancy announcement onesie! I completed the order today and will be shipping it this weekend.  I'm rather new to Instagram, but I set one up and have posted pictures of items I've made.  If anyone has any tips about Instagram, I would love to hear any advice you may have.

    My daughter has been hounding me to make her a Minnie Mouse t-shirt. I bought the t-shirt to use for the project 2 weeks ago, but never got around to make it. Today, she was literally hopping around me non-stop asking me to make the shirt, so I finally was able to complete it for her. She was BEYOND thrilled. It turned out very well, if I do say so myself! The shirt is from Target - Cat and Jack brand. For the design, it's a Minnie Mouse head silhouette that I did in gold HTV. My bestie brought me sheets of various colors of glitter HTV which made me BEYOND excited. I thought my daughter would pick the pink glitter one, but she was stuck on the gold. And I have to say, it was a fantastic choice. The shirt looks great. Originally, I was going to have her name go on the side of Minnie, but then decide not to add it on to the shirt at all. When I gave her the shirt, she asked "where's the rest of it?". I asked if she wanted her name on the shirt as well and she responded, "yes".  When asked where she wanted it located, she pointed under Minnie...so that is where it went! She my mini fashion designer.  :)



    Any hoo...that's about it for now. I need to go and get some rest.

    I hope you enjoyed reading and I hope to be posting new projects soon!

    Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! :)

    Newest Creation - Personalized EPIC T-Shirt

    My son asked me if I could make him a t-shirt that said "epic" on it. I, of course, was more than excited to take on that project. I designed and created the file in photoshop and imported it into design space.

    Holy Moly! I thought I was doing such a great job. I printed my first round and forgot to reverse the image. Awesome. So, I go back and reverse it and print again. Woo Hoo. It cuts and "looks" great. So after weeding, I check it against the shirt that I got for my son and it is WAY.TOO.BIG. The image goes onto the sleeves, so I had to cut down the sides a bit - no prob. Right? Iron it on -- it's big...but oh well. I keep staring at it because something is just not sitting right with me. After going back to my original image, I realize that the dot above the "i" is not there. I thought maybe that's  how the font was, but when going back to my computer, there definitely is supposed to be a dot and it looks way better with it. I then realize that I never made that part transparent - Awesome. Went back into photoshop, fixed it and back to design space. I also made the image as a whole smaller so that it would look better on the shirt. I check...there was a dot above the "I". Check, Check, triple check. ABOUT to go print when I realized that AGAIN I didn't reverse the image. This time though, I caught it in time, so....3rd times a charm!

    Oh the adventures of HTV. Here are the final results! My guy LOVES the shirt. I'm also taking orders! The word doesn't have to be "epic", it can be any word of your choice! The best way to contact me is via email: madewithlovedezine@gmail.com or through my etsy account here.




    Thanks for reading! xoxo
