On Vacation: Heading to RockyGrass

Joshua and I are about ready to make our yearly trek to Lyons, Colorado for the RockyGrass Festival.  It's so much fun to just relax and listen to amazing music while be surrounded by friends and family. I'll be sure to share photos and videos when I get back.

Going out of town also means that there will be a longer wait for Etsy orders. I am going to leave the store active but anything ordered July 23rd through July 30th will not be shipped until August 1st. So if there is anything you want you might want to purchase in the next few days.

New Etsy Listings July 2012

I just added a couple of new items to Etsy and on the floor at Vitae.

I loved the Spaceman burnout hoodies so much that I decided to order another color. I got the cobalt blue and printed our classic Bee design in white.

I also printed another burnout baseball tee. I love the green and grey with our new Snake design.

Check them out on Etsy!

Hoodies in July

Even though there is a heat wave everywhere I am still getting requests for hoodies. So here they are! I reprinted the Indian hoodie and then printed a couple of new ones. The first is an eco-fleece hoodie with the snake design in red.  The second is a new hoodie style, the burnout fleece zip hoodie from Alternative Apparel.  This hoodie features our spaceman design.

Everything is available at Vitae Design Collective and on Etsy,

Joshua and I love Instagram... It's usually the first place we post new designs, tattoos, dog photos and a lot of other random things. So follow us!



P.S. I will be posting more of these dog photos soon. We had a fun photo shoot with Figment Art Photography last week.
