St. Patrick's Day T-Shirts!

New moms and dads, don't worry! St. Patrick’s Day can still be fun with a kid or two. Or three or four as the case may be! This year we went to the St. Patrick’s Day Run. It’s a five mile run, and you can sign up as a competitive or non-competitive runner, or you can even participate while toting the kids in a stroller. Here are some pics of my baby girl and me at the start line. Bridget was such a trooper!

And, of course, we at Zoey’s Attic we believe there’s no better way to get your family in the St. Patrick’s Day mood than a lucky Irish t-shirt! We’ve got special shirts for everyone from your St. Patty’s princess to her Irish grandpa. Just think how adorable the pictures will be!

More birdies - birdies, birdies everywhere!

I am barely keeping my head above water these days with my Etsy shop. Apparently, the birdie shirts are quite popular with the sibling set. I am definitely NOT complaining about having all these shirts to print, it's just I often lose of how awesome what I do is. These aren't just white t-shirts, they are really exciting things for the recipients! Whether it's a gift or a pregnancy announcement, someone on the receiving end of my hard work is really excited. That's probably why I spend too much time (from an economic standpoint) making sure each one is just right and that the birdies are spaced right and the font looks just perfect on each shirt. When I question the time I spend and the amount of headaches that go into printing these shirts myself, I get a picture like this from a happy customer and I get tears in my eyes looking at those beautiful girls meeting their brand new baby brother with their "big sister" shirts on! Aahh! It's so awesome!

I thought I'd also post the biggest birdie order to date. I shipped out this order for four siblings today! We've done our fair share of threesies, but this was the first "foursie" and adorable it was, even if I do say so myself! I'm sure before long, this adorable set of four shirts will be worn by four very excited siblings and I'll think about that next time I'm cussing out my printer for jamming! :)
