Hi there! Long time no post! I’m printing up a storm to get ready for my next pop-up shop
at Vintage and Made Fair in Urbandale (Des Moines) Iowa on October 7-8th. Here’s a fun design I just posted via my Etsy Shop.
After my sweetie and I print my kitchen towels, I cure them (drying process) and fold/package them. I know many kitchen towels are sold with a string tied around them but I like to take the extra step of packaging my towels. My customers and stockists tell me they appreciate my tidy packaging—perfect for tucking into a gift bag or envelope to send to a friend. So it’s worth the extra work if it makes y’all happy! ❤😊☉🖑 #caturday #wirefoxterrier
Hope to see you there!
The last few weeks have been full of restocking and adding in my new pups like this sweet #pitbull to my etsy shop and to my stockists like Mohair Pear on the Hill in Cedar Falls. Lots of built-in exercise with my job printing, curing towels, packing towels, carting said towels up and down stairs…😉 Which is good because my “odometer” turns over later this month (birthday). I also think every hands-on printmaker should have their own physical therapist on speed dial. I couldn’t keep up this pace without their guidance…truly!
A shout-out to my great customers in the Northfield, MN area: swag – fine & funky art is fully restocked with my 2017 designs—including these new pups: #germanshepherd #bassethound #pitbull Thanks Swag! <3 (Corrected phone number from initial post. Please use this store number… thanks!)
Hey #quadcities friends! I delivered a HUGE box of towels to the great @craftedqc last week. Including this new #bassethound design. It was such fun to see everyone and the perpetual-kindergartner-in-me will forever delight in seeing my goods in such a beautiful shop 🙌😍😄 #katebrennanhall #illustration #printmaking #handmadebyOURhands#teatowels #floursack #commercialgradetowel
At an impromptu lunch the other day, my friend Marie served up yet another batch of creativity. This friend says she’s not an “artist” yet its clear as an Iowa sky that she lives a highly creative life.
Her table was set with beautiful consignment finds (creative shopping!)—including soft cloth napkins. That lunch, and my friend Marie, inspired me to create these cloth napkins from my color test towels.
The red thread dancing across the myriad of colors and shapes makes me think of Marie while giving thanks for the gift of so many creative friends from all walks of life. <3
