T-Shirts, T-Shirts, T-Shirts!

My company's holiday craft fair is coming up, so because I clearly don't have enough to do between my job, freelance projects, and blogging, I decided to sell silkscreened t-shirts. Who needs sleep?

I have a bunch of silkscreens that I designed a few years ago, and I thought it would be fun to print some shirts and make some money. Then I ordered 6 dozen t-shirts. I guess I wasn't exactly thinking that 6 dozen equals 72 until a box from American Apparel arrived at my office that was way too heavy for me to carry home. Oops.

After paying for a cab and galumphing the giant box up the 4 flights of my apartment building, I set to work. I got through 4 dozen in one night— woohoo!— only to wake up the next morning to realize every available surface in my apartment was covered with drying t-shirts. I think I need a studio...

You are a maniac! A talented, creative one.
From what I can see, they are all beautiful and they'll sell quickly. You better order 72 more T-shirts. Will one be in my stocking for Christmas?
