THESE PLANETS RULE!!! Astrology tee design by ilovegravy
THESE PLANETS RULE!!! Astrology tee design

www.threadless.com/designs/the…

I made a design for Threadless' astrology contest!!

For people into astrology: Please enjoy my design appreciating the ruling planets of the signs! :D

For people not into astrology: Please enjoy my design featuring some random shapes with smiley faces!! :D

VOTE or pre-order/fund here: www.threadless.com/designs/the…

Like last time, if you’re interested in the tee, please feel free to fund/pre-order it ($20 on sale + free shipping!) and if I get 50 people to fund/pre-order it then they’ll print it!  Or if you don’t want the tee, if you’re at least ok with voting 5, then maybe they might take notice and I could win the contest (haha though, not holding my breath).

Thank you x 3945834095 if you vote or fund!! :D :D :D

Threadless voting!! -- Holidays, always by ilovegravy
Threadless voting!! -- Holidays, always

Dear pals,

www.threadless.com/designs/hol…

I have a design up at Threadless for voting and/or Funding (i.e. Pre-ordering for $20 + free shipping! regular $25 + shipping)

If you do decide to fund the design, I have a special thank you gift:

Anyone who funds this design will get a FREE T-SHIRT from me (from my preexisting designs; size/design availability pending) IF the design gets fully funded and printed!! (More details later if this actually happens!)

I need 50 or more people to pre-order the tee in the next 9 days, and then Threadless will actually print it!! (at least, that is what they say, haha they apparently still reserve the right to not print anything if they don't want to--which is understandable, but supposedly getting 50 people to fund your design will most likely result in them printing it!!)

If it DOESN'T get printed, but you still funded the design, I'd still like to say thank you, so if you forward me your confirmation email saying you funded the design supergoodclothing@gmail.com , I'll send you a free sticker to say thanks!! :) And then most likely I'll try again on Kickstarter to fund the printing myself.

If you are concerned/have any questions about funding/preordering at Threadless, the main things you need to know are:

- You must have a Threadless account (free to sign up)

- You'll need to input your credit card info to fund/pre-order the tee, but it WILL NOT be charged UNLESS the design is fully funded and printed.

Check out Threadless' FAQ for more details! support.threadless.com/……

So as mentioned in my previous post Thinking about crowd funding/pre-orders... due to money constraints as a result of currently not having a regular day job to fund my business, my plan for 2015 (and maybe beyond) is to create new designs and then put them up for crowd funding/pre-orders via Threadless/Kickstarter/etc. So this is my first attempt! I'm not holding my breath, haha but if you're willing to help me out, I SUPER SUPER SUPER APPRECIATE IT!!!!!! :D

Thanks in advance if you vote and/or fund the design!!!:D

Wilford Bunly the Stabbing Bunny by ilovegravy
Wilford Bunly the Stabbing Bunny
So over FIVE YEARS since the first/last time I tried needle felting, lullabyetonightmares reminded me that I wanted to try again, so I got a kit with some new supplies, and I made this fellow! Wilford Bunly ^_^

I'm really happy/proud/excited about how he came out, given this is how my FIRST attempt looked :D

STABBING OWLS

AND the needle broke like 2-3 times :D?? THIS time I didn't break the needle at all!! :excited:

So yes, I'm super looking forward to making more needle felted babies since I've gotten the hang of it and/or have better supplies since the last time I tried five years ago!!  Plus, this definitely appeals to my love of sculpting, and with no need to bake it after or wait for it to dry! :dance:

If you are unfamiliar with why I named this fellow as such, here is a video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SCOaB…

a very owly birthday
as usual I am the slowest ass ever/fail to pre-plan for things, and so despite lullabyetonightmares's bday being on the 8th, I have only finished this personalized e-card just now :noes:

but yes, I HOPE YOU ENJOY!!! :party: :dance: :granny:

soak it up while you can cuz I will prob be jailed by the ASPCA for animal cruelty melting hot wax and a mixture of hydrogenated oil and high fructose corn syrup on this poor fellow's head.

also, I wanted to note that I drew this entirely on my iPhone using this wonderful free app: iphone.takabosoft.com/en/index… highly recommended to any folks who like pixel art and doing crap on their phone/ipad! you can even do animation and layers!! (haha god, i spent waaay too long on the fire animation even though you can barely see it)

i did all the lettering pixel by pixel, too, though now I'm realizing what an ass I am that I made my name the largest text of all ^^;

also, cuz i was looking at this on my phone the entire time, I didn't realize it would be THIS tiny. hahah so feel free to zoom and/or here is an enlarged version for your convenience: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/99… (without animation :P)

Dear anyone who still reads these entries, haha

I was wondering if I could poll you guys and ask for suggestions about stuff as I plan for 2015.

(sorry, semi-long backstory ahead, if you wanna skip ahead I'll mark the TL;DR below. haha)

Long story short, I am currently in a very transitional period due to moving, as well as my job situation changing (I've always had a day job to fund my shirt/etc. business, as I've not been able to make enough to be support it otherwise), so as a result, I'm planning to start restructuring how I do things with my brand. (which will be a DECADE OLD next year...! so I'm still holding out hope I can keep it alive and not have to euthanize it as so many other small business owners have had to do.)

One of the things I'm looking into is crowd funding/taking pre-orders for tees and other items before producing/ordering them, as I can no longer really afford to keep getting batches of stuff printed and/or storing them.

So! That said, the options I'm looking into would either be like Kickstarter/ Indiegogo/other project-specific crowd funding sites, shirt specific crowd funding options like Threadless' new funding option or Teespring, OR I might jump on the Patreon bandwagon and see if anyone's willing to contribute a few dollars a month to support me/my brand. (If you have any preference or thoughts about any of these sites, I'd be interested in hearing! I've only ever used Kickstarter/Indiegogo as a supporter but never tried using them for funding.)

Anyway, so, all those things would involve me offering incentives to anyone who helps support my brand (I'd even offer prizes for stuff like Threadless' funding even though their system is just to pledge/preorder and that's it) and so I wanted to ask you guys if there's anything in particular you'd be interested in that would motivate you to pledge/pre-order/support my brand.

Here's some stuff I've seen people offer, if any of these sound good, let me know! Or if you think of anything else, that's appreciated as well!  The more details you can provide the better, as I suck at this kind of thing and have no idea what people want. haha

- Discount on product when pre-ordering

- Coupon for FUTURE discount on other merchandise

- Exclusive free gifts that you can only get by preordering (buttons, stickers, keychains, let me know if you think of other stuff)

- Custom art

- Exclusive behind the scenes pics/video of the design process and/or random stuff like videos answering questions

- What else???

*******************************TL;DR*******************************
I'm planning to do pre-orders/crowd funding for most of my future tees/etc. as I currently can't afford to get stuff printed/store it. If you could comment with some suggestions of rewards/incentives/prizes you'd be interested in, I'd love to get some ideas from you guys!! Also if you have any preference/thoughts on which site(s) I go with for this idea.
*******************************TL;DR*******************************

Thanks in advance to anyone who comments!!!  (though I'm preparing for tumbleweeds and cricket noises. haha sigh. which is part of why this is Plan G of trying to save my business.)

Thanks to the super awesomely wonderful people below, my llama is all decked out in the finest accessories that points can buy :happycry:

So now I guess I'm just collecting points for unknown reasons. haha Perhaps I will pool them and then have a contest to give it as a prize, or if they release more llama accessories... :plotting: :giggle:


old plea: My poor llama suffers from cataracts and could really use a pair of sunglasses :( what's that, you say? llamas are known for their indestructible eyeballs? oh. well in that case, he just wants wishes to be cool, like Fonzie. what's that you say? Fonzie never wore sunglasses?? oh. well in that case, he wishes to rob a bank, and needs proper attire to do so. he needs the money for laser eye surgery and the Happy Days DVD boxset. :meow:


...CAN'T A LLAMA JUST HAVE SUNGLASSES WITHOUT HAVING TO COME UP WITH ASININE REASONS INVOLVING EYE CONDITIONS AND FONZIE??? THIS IS JUST LIKE WHAT HAPPENED AT LENS CRAFTERS YESTERDAY :crying:


as you can see, the TRUE REASON he needs sunglasses is to disassociate himself from me when we are out in public :slow:

:llama: - help me..............
