Rhoadworks is Back Again..

Several months ago I had to have shoulder surgery.  I never intended to ignore my blog.  But time goes by fast and I simply got busy. 
Good things really do come out of bad sometimes.  For instance.  I am going to get a new heat press.  The one I use now, and for the past 6 years, is a hand press.  It's not hard to use and I've loved it.  But I guess after so many years, things wear out.  Like my shoulder.  
I had to close my shop for almost two weeks.  It almost killed me to not work on customers orders.  But, I opened back up and between physical therapy sessions, I kept up with the orders.  It's amazing how many things you can learn to do with your left hand!
I am researching what kind of "automatic" press to get.  And I can't wait.  It will allow me more time to design and work. 
I love the way these Crows look on Black and White onesies and tees.

Super Heroes are still a hot item.  I'm looking forward to a busy Halloween season.  I have lots more Toddler Tee sizes and colors now.  
 My dogs are growing in numbers too.
 They continue to be popular.
I have even started working with customers pet photos.  Here are three that I did recently.  Love them!

Well, I'll sign off with a promise to be back soon.

New Designs for the New Year

It's a New Year!  And I've been inspired to do some new designs.  You never know where your inspiration will come from.  I was listening to a radio station that only plays comedy.  Hince the Knock Knock - Who's There design.  I love it.  Personally, I think it would look great on tee shirts too.
My iconic Super Hero designs continue to dominate my sales. (Thank You!)  They're really cute and current.  But I want to come up with my own Super Hero designs too.  I've been doing research into all the DC Comic heros.  Lots of ideas are out there to be done.  I've noticed a lack of female Super Heroes.  So, I came up with Pink Power.  I plan to do more for the ladies, but this is my first.  
And of course we all know it's Tax Season.  Sorry to remind you all.  But it's a perfect time to buy my "Daddy's Little Deduction" onesie.  I've had the design around a long time.  But it's always been done on Black.  This year I've brought it out on Green..the color of money!  And it's long sleeve.  It is also available as "Mommy's Little Deduction" upon request.  This green color is a new addition to my line up of colors.  I'll have fun putting designs on this..especially with St. Patrick's Day coming up.
 And of course there have been more dog breeds to do.  Most of them 
have been requests from my dog lov'n customers.  Here are just a few.
