Show & Tell: More freaking shirts

October 7, 2009

in Show & Tell

For some gals, it’s shoes. For others, booze and drugs.

For me, apparently, my addiction is customized shirts.

I’d used CafePress previously, but someone on Twitter recently turned me on to Spreadshirt, which is MUCH easier to use.

So I designed these. And I *love* walking around in mine.

Admittedly, my market is small: people who (a) practice yoga; and (b) read this blog.

Which is, basically, me. And my sisters. And maybe one or two of you, who probably don’t need a new shirt anyway.

So why am I showing and telling this? Because you can make your own,* too. There are hundreds of types of shirts — men’s women’s, children’s — full range of sizes, designs galore for whatever floats your boat, and the ability to upload your own designs.

Something to think about for ALI2010 and BlogHer10. Or Christmas presents.

Or just for be-bopping around.

See what my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell. And show something yourself — everyone is welcome.

* Disclosure: If you click on the link to design your own shirt and you end up purchasing something, Spreadshirts will pay me a small finder’s fee. Take that, FTC.

I think if I ever wore a “body by yoga” shirt, it would scare hundreds of people away from ever trying it- especially when my “twitchies” affect my face.

I like the shirts you designed. If I were a yoga-person, I would totally get one and advertise you…alas.

Is it awful that my first thought was, “this could be a new and delightful way to tease Josh”?

Now – I have one of the original ones and wear it with pride. I can even talk my way through the reiki points now…But I LOVE that second one.

Wow – well designed.

How neat is that! The t-shirts you designed are too cute! That would be a wonderful fundraising/raising awareness idea. Thanks for sharing the website and pictures!

Hmm. Interesting. I get frustrated with sites that have clothes as I have a difficult time finding things that fit. It’s cool though having your blog on your shirt. Would be great for blogher.

I am one of the lucky ones who:

** would love to wear this shirt (cool design)

** enjoy reading your blog (great writing)

** am into yoga (flexible body and calm mind), AND

** (here’s the really juicy part), I get to be YOUR sister too. :)

I’m so darn lucky…maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket!!

What a great idea! Custom tee shirts used to be expensive and a hassle. So nice to know that isn’t the case anymore!
