A Little Spring Cleaning

There may still be some snow on the ground outside my window, but I need to get a little spring cleaning done. My desk is covered in papers, and my digital files are in disarray. I’m also working on a few new illustrations that I want to apply to products, but it will have to wait until I clean up my store.

World Otter Day

The International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) designated the last Wednesday of May as World Otter Day. Their goal is to raise awareness to their work protecting, conserving, and caring for otters everywhere.

As an otter fan, I look forward to sharing that vision. What better way to do that than showing off my wares. You can too, by wearing an Otter Things shirt, or drinking coffee at the office in an Otter Things mug. Continue reading World Otter Day

Otter Things Apparel Care

If you are anything like me, you can’t wait to wear your new clothes. I cut off the tags, wash and dry the item, and don it as fast as possible. Many times it is still warm from the dryer when I put it on. It is okay to be excited about new clothes, but take some time to read the care instructions before you ruin your new purchase.

Otter Things apparel comes in a few different blends. Some are 100% cotton; others are a 50/50 cotton/polyester blend. You can follow the instructions on the garment label, but you will want to account for the printed design too. Luckily, the care for your new digs is simple. Continue reading Otter Things Apparel Care
