State of the Union

It may seem kinda slow around these parts lately, but I promise that there's plenty happening behind the scenes! I'm currently booking shows for the summer and beyond (which you can keep up with on the new Events page), working on new products (tiny t's coming soon!) and I've also been cranking out some brand new designs (below is a quick peek at one of the little fellas).

If you're in the Shreveport area, come see me June 4th at the Shreveport Farmer's's their first year to add artists to the mix and should be a blast. Oh, and why not join the Facebook group while we're on a roll here? Okay, that's all for now. Stay tuned for more TOOMASOOBA!

One bad apple.

Handmade Bash Wrap Up

Whew! It's been over a week since the Bash and after a quick trip to Tennessee I'm finally getting around to a write-up. I've got to admit, I was pretty nervous in the days leading up to the festivities...once we got everything set up and started slingin' some shirts, however, most of the jitters were out of my system (I think I sweated them out carrying stuff on the looooong haul to my booth space, actually).

Had a great time meeting new people, chatting it up with fellow exhibitors, seeing which items moved fast and which ones didn't — I really learned a ton and got some great ideas on what kinds of products to tackle next (and how to approach my presentation as well). That being said, keep an eye out for some kids shirts and other sweet TOOMASOOBA action soon....very soon!

Many thanks to the Etsy Dallas crew for putting on this rad show...I hope to be a part of it again for sure. I'd also like to give a big shout-out to my boy Rex for coming along to hold down the table and work his sales magic while I was running around like a madman (which was most of the time).

Didn't have too much time for photographic opportunities, but below are a few quick pics from my table's vantage point...take a look!

A peek at the crowd.
Dramatic shot (kinda)!
