taking a leap + underdog ink [it rhymes i had to do it]
why the title of this post you ask?
well.... i have decided that it really is time to try and simplify my world a bit, for several reasons. and one of those steps is to let go a bit of underdog ink . i'm not going to totally dismantle it - because who knows - perhaps i'll get a whim to design a shirt - or some jewelry, or a softie or two and i'll want a place to sell that stuff. but i am going to try and clear out the inventory i have at the studio. SO - above is the new design - a little bird saying hello to a giraffe - available on both women's T's and baby/toddler Ts [sizes 6-12 through 4T] and totes. AND - all the older designs i have - women's - baby's - and jewelry are 15-45% off. i’m most likely never going to reprint any old imagery [at least not in the same color/shirt combos]– so now is the time to grab something – pretend it’s christmas in august.
the other reason this is a leap is because i'm going to try and use/save any proceeds from this sale for a build lisa a studio fund. i love my studio. i love that it's only 5 minutes away from my house. but i'm realizing that i really need to time manage better - if i have an hour of "free" time i want to be able to use it in my studio. i can't do that now. just the effort of packing myself and the dogs into the car means i need to have at least 3 hours of time. plus i'm always leaving something i need in one place or the other... and thus i am going to attempt to build myself a space in my backyard. going into debt scares me - but i know this is worth it ! and if aurora has taught me anything it's that i must ask the universe for things that i truly want.
a set of plans by a very very dear one [close to our favorite bug ] are almost complete. i have a feeling this is going to be one huge roller coaster ride....
anyways. thanks, as always, for your continued support - and if you are up for early christmas shopping - visit underdog ink!
have a great friday and weekend
