Teeshirts, mousepads, ornaments and more with folk music, progressive political, environmental and social satire themes, created by Seattle folksinger Karen the LairMistress!

Welcome to ARTIFACTS OF THE LAIR!

Hello and Welcome to the Lair's biggest emporium, LairCronies, LairLurkers, comrades, friends and fellow folkies! It's time to update this little intro page, we think; the staleness of the old text can be smelled clear across this galaxy of Cyberspace!

The images featured in this LairShop are mostly digital art pieces, along with an original photograph or two. We are especially proud of our current Official LairLogo: a small, round ornament made of Sculpey polymer clay, decorated in the style of Neolithic European ceramic art (c. 6000 B.C.E.-c. 2500 B.C.E.); then slapped on a scanner and endowed with a striking background courtesy of Photoshop! The Lair's title and url are also featured. Our more recent images and photos have featured something that I like to call "painting with photographs"; that is, the whole reason for the existence of "background" images on stock photo sites. Photoshop, in one edition or another, continues to be helpful, with its cookie cutter designs, functions for "painting" from backgrounds, and elaboration of assorted fonts.

#####

Our latest features include some designs inspired by this utterly insane episode of time known as "Election 2016". As a Bernie Sanders supporter, I've been a co-admin for a Facebook page called "Muslims for Bernie" (believe it or not, a lot of American Muslims love Bernie! At least, he's not threatening to bar them from entering or re-entering the country if they go to visit relatives abroad); and I have designed both teeshirts and bumberstickers for followers of this page. Other political slogans are to be found in the relatively new "Team Bernie" SubLair.

Have you seen our new promo video for this Lair on Youtube? This clip showcases our Aerial photos featured on our Best of the Cascades SubLair, with a little help from Youtube's audio library! Check out our little marketing video clip at this link...

Hopefully, I will soon have, or make, time to add to the images taken during our tour in the gorgeous land of Guatemala in May 2013. There are just a few that have been uploaded here so far; but I hope to rectify that shortly. We also have some marvelous shots from Hawaii in the fall of 2014 that deserve to be shamelessly commercialized as well--preferably scenes that have not been widely photographed and marketed by 300,000 other photographers better than myself.

As for the "Miscellanea Digitalis" SubLair, it is beginning to expand out of control; so we will soon be making new storefronts for the Hitchens memorabilia, as well as the photo of my Mom's cat wondering, "Who Tweeted?", and the good ol' "So Sue Me" shot overlooking Elliott Bay here in Seattle. The new "BreatheFire" and "Relentlessly Gay" SubLairs are still here, though the news stories and slogans-slash-hashtags that inspired them seem to have faded from memory already, what with all the attention to Hillary's health and Trump's latest lunatic tweets and other deranged behavior. I'm #StillSanders, in case you missed it...

Before we go on, you are cordially invited to check out my special Cafepress LairShop blog, The LairShops Beckon! Unfortunately, the Squidoo lenses we set up to promote all the LairShops were co-opted by this rather pointless (in my opinion) outfit known as "HubPages", and they decided to discontinue any lenses/hubs that promoted Cafepress stores. Plus, be sure to visit my other stores as well:

Trump Blockers

Trump Blockers
The management here blocked my "Trump blocked me on Twitter" logo! I don't appreciate that one bit. Maybe I should block them on Twitter. But no worries; I'll get my revenge via Grumpy Cat meme, or

Kari's Lair is my official website; and naturally it should have an official Logo with its title, url and a Neolithic-inspired ceramic ornament...
