Vintage Photo Contest: The Rubix

In case you missed Friday’s post, please go HERE to read about the Vintage photo contest. In short, we are walking down Memory Lane this month and revisiting all our “vintage” Evy’s Tree photos we’ve taken over the years… a fun way to help us get excited about the future. At the end of the blog post I give you an opportunity to share the photo and enter to win one of three $100 gift card to the shop when it opens back up the end of July.

Today I want to talk about one of my first boys hoodie we ever made, The Rubix.

This hoodie is very special to me. First of all, Brandon and I made them together. The rubix is actually a patch, we cut out every single one of those felt pieces, glued them together, then sewed them together. It was A LOT of work, something we realized very quickly that we couldn’t make any money on, so we discontinued it near the beginning. I was so sad, because I loved this one, and was hoping to keep it around for a while.

This hoodie is also very special to me because it makes me think of my little boy. Do you see how small he is?!? I can’t get over it! These pictures were taken just a few days after Jake’s 3rd birthday.

Oh my word I could kiss those little lips. In case you are wondering why we never have Evy  model…well, we try, I promise! But she doesn’t really like to be in front of the camera and pretty much quits after a couple clicks. ha. Jake is a ham. He will go for hours smiling and laughing, so thankfully we have one kid who doesn’t mind posing for us.

These pictures are also special to me because these were our first attempt at product shots. We had no idea what we were doing, but we called our brother in law, the photographer, and he walked us through it. We just had our little Cannon Rebel and these amazing windows that faced East, so we got all the morning sun blasting in. We had to move our couches and everything, but it was worth it because Brandon was able to snag such great shots.

I always tell people, this business was really a family thing in the beginning {and it still is, actually}. We really worked together. Thinking about it now makes me all teary, actually. We had no start up money, and to be honest, very little time to start a business, but God literally DUMPED this into our laps. To this day we don’t know what He has in store for Evy’s Tree, but we feel confident that whatever it is, He will work out all the details for us. We are blessed.

    Hi there,
    I’m a long time reader and I just wanted to share something with you. I was on the computer catching up on my blogs and I happened to be reading this post, when my son (almost three) stopped tearing the house up just to admire this hoodie. He told me,”Mom, his shirt is so cool; it has a lot of colors”. He was pretty mesmerized and I thought it was so cute. I figured you would appreciate knowing you have pint-size admirer named Nathan. Love your work and your blog :)

    This submit is actually helpful. I am able to override author’, email’ and url’ default settings, but I am not able to override comment_field’, it is getting duplicated, i.e. the default textarea is also appearing with my custom comment textarea. Any help would be appreciated.
