If you might be interested in purchasing anything from Zazzle this weekend - from me or anyone else - they're offering 14.92% off for the holiday.

Contact me if you're interested in my account or use the link from the sidebar on my art blog. I only have about a dozen things designed, which amounts to my paintings on t-shirts, onesies, totes, etc. I can specialize or add more as desired.

No biggie if you're not interested, but for those among us who like sales, the whole site would be a fun place to peruse.

I am placing an order myself - the sale has gotten me off the stick. I want business cards as well as shirts for J, his half sister, and me.

The items are cool b/c all customers can redesign anything on them for your needs. I wanted J to have an interesting shirt which also would serve to advertise for me. I chose one I'd created and I told him he could fool with the fonts, positioning, etc to get it the way he wanted. Of course, he "simplified" the front - took off my art company name/location and added a ginormous stencil of his name, so it looks $(#^*% military. Then the title on the back was changed into the same stupid stencil font. I had a phrase on the bottom that he left alone, but I told him I would not order the t-shirt unless it advertised me somehow, so that's stuck in tiny print at the very bottom.

Be careful what you wish for. Perhaps your customizing follies will be more fun.

I'm off to purchase and maybe make my advertising a wee bit larger on his shirt, ha! I'll take advantage of him being out of town with his dad (home for 2 weeks) and do what I please!

Hmm! I haven't been on Zazzle in awhile. The last time I was on there I ordered stamps with my mom's cat on them. I'll have to check it out! Thanks for letting us know about the sale!

I'm so broke, I can't even think about buying anything fun. One of these days....

I forgot to adjust his font! Shoot, my details are forgettable at the bottom on the back.

Placed an over for almost $160, incl $20 shipping. Okay, I charged said order.

I got four shirts and 5 styles x 100 business cards. I used to DREAM of having my own image on a business card. Ordering in bulk, each design cost under $11. I had fun playing with fonts, colors, spacing, overlapping, etc.

I need to design more stuff for over there. It is so much fun. I've always wondered what it would be like to be a graphics designer - too, not instead of.
