Dabbling in Design
I feel in love with design the summer a friend handed me a copy of Photoshop. Unfortunately, I cannot draw to save my life… so I am limited to text. And, with that limitation, I may or may not be completely addicted to fonts. Like, literally 1,000’s of fonts on my external hard drive. It’s beyond an obsession… I am totally hoarding fonts.
Anyways, I was trying to come up with a fun way for us to represent the blog when we are at events or traveling. So, I began to brainstorm different shirt ideas. I thought about it for weeks, but then became hard pressed when I received a discount code I could not pass up. Thus, I had to work quick because the code was for one day only.
I must say, I am a bit proud of the shirts and how they turned out all things considered. I had fully intended to wait until Christmas to give everyone their shirts… but we have a fun opp coming up next week. Therefore, I gave them them each their own blogging shirt and was delighted to hear that they actually liked them! I mean, I thought they were cool, but I am rarely accused of being the hip one in the house.
Plus, since I have been designing on Zazzle for about 6 years, I had a good stash of credit to use. I have ordered from them a few times, so knew they would be great. I actually got all excited when they arrived. Once I gathered the whole crew I gave them their shirts… and they loved them! Yay! What a relief.
Not to mention, after a few pictures went out on both Facebook and Instagram, I began getting messages about where to purchase the shirts. So… here you go, you can purchase them at my Zazzle store. I have set up a category just for these products (and if they’re not showing up yet please try back soon… they are awaiting approval for upload). For now there are simple un-branded designs. Our shirts have my blog url on them and I can personalize yours as well. Just shoot me a message.
I can’t wait to wear these as we make our way through our next blogging event. It should be lots of fun… at least for me.
