Next, I told Margaret and she responded, "That's weird."
So, with a huge vote of confidence from the home team, I thought I'd share with you my latest endeavor:
An Inch of Gray T-shirts on Amazon!
I absolutely LOVE typography t-shirts, and I've had a couple of ideas knocking around in my head for a while, but I didn't know how produce them for myself, or for others if they were interested.
A friend I met at a conference this spring talked me through how to open up an online t-shirt shop, so I jumped in and got creative. I now have variations of 5 designs available.
I am thrilled with how they turned out, and I hope you love them too!
And as for Tim's WHY, here are my top three reasons for designing these t-shirts:
1) It's a way to feel productive and creative when I can't seem to find enough time to devote to writing and other creative pursuits right now.
2) I now have the cool typography t-shirts I wanted that pertain to different aspects of my life.
3) I hope to earn income to help with blog-related expenses such as web hosting.
Here I am in my first design.
Geriatric Mama: I can't read this without my glasses
Yes, I crack myself up.
Do not, I repeat DO NOT buy this t-shirt for someone else as a joke. Sure, you can send a friend the link (please do!!!!) but make sure SHE wants the shirt, or you could end up getting hurt.
All bets are off for the counterpart, Old as Dirt Dad, which would make a super-fun Father's Day Gift. It's a terrible double standard, I realize.
See all of my designs here! They are available in a variety of colors.
Let me know what you think, and please share them with anyone you think would like them.
Size note: These are premium t-shirts made out of super-soft, thin fabric, not the bulky t-shirts of yesteryear. They are slim cut. I bought several samples to see what Amazon meant by SIZE UP in the instructions. In the women's cut, which is quite fitted, I wear a Large, when normally I'd be a Medium, and they only go up to XL. In the men's cut I wear a Small or Medium, and they go up to 3XL. I like both cuts for different reasons. The men's cut is roomier, with a bigger design, but it is NOT BULKY, so don't hesitate to buy a men's size if you want some extra room.
