WAUSAU - A t-shirt's unique design starts somewhere.

For one Wausau woman, it is right in her basement home studio.

It's all handwork and a green machine press for self-taught screen printer Britnie Remer and her business, Wicked Good Vibes.

Intrigue got Britnie started back in 2015.

It was a trial and error process at first.

"It gave me time to grow into what I wanted to be and figure out what it was that I wanted to do specifically," says Remer.

Things started to pick up when she sold at her first market in Iowa a couple of years ago.

"It kind of opened doors to all these new potential customers I didn't know about."

She sometimes spends 15 or 16 hours screen printing in her home studio.

Wicked Good Vibes has pretty much shipped to every single state, and even a couple of places in Europe.

"Every single order that I get, even here in Wausau... I am so thankful and so surprised every day."

RHINELANDER - A snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments.

"We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson.

Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's.

"We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson. 

"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent.

The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants.

"For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent.  

"We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth.
