66 - T-shirt ideas...

There is no way to really recap the last two weeks (or more!) since my last post. Just busyness. Craziness. Scattered. Unable to catch my breath. Recovering from a bad holiday. I need to lighten up. I can be too intense...serious...full of myself...too much in my head. I'm either giving every bit of energy I have to something or giving nothing at all. Most times, there is no a balance. My one New Year's resolution is simple - lighten my mental load so that my heart has more of an opportunity to be heard.

So in the spirit of lightening up...I have had this on my mind since about a week after our BFN. It came about while I was trying to figure out how we could finance our adoption process or further treatment. I was thinking of "fundraisers" of sorts...and as twisted as it is, this is an image that came to mind -


Ha! I know, I'm crazy. And I'll send an apology out early to anyone I may have offended by making light of the situation, but what else is there to do? I'm done sitting here being angry and bitter about it all. I'm a fun, free-spirited person...at least I use to be. I miss her. This intense, serious, obsessed, super-negative chick is really a drag to be around.

Anyway, anyone want to go into business making a line of t-shirts for us infertiles? Then we can prance around Target midday and make all those lucky ones feel like asses for wearing their highly offensive "I can grow people!" shirts...see Ashley's post at planetdavila.blogspot.com for the story on that one!

Here's to a lighter 2009...

Revision: Great idea, Jill! Here is an update. I added the pink and baseball style to make it a little more interesting...as well as a warning and invitation (depending on the circumstance) on the back :-)

I'll buy one of those! Can we add "... and a $25k bill"?

DAVs said...

Hey I'd buy one of those!
Have you ever seen the ones at Cafepress.com? Just search "infertility" and a ton come up.
My favorite is the one that says: Lucky me, infertility AND your stupid comments!

I'm glad you're feeling lighter!

Glad to see you around again!

Great shirts, but for bigger fundraising could you make them more generic? (-; T-shirt requester provides clinic initials and cost of bill. You could up the price because now they are "customized". LOL.

Never a need to apologize. Your blog, your rules. (-; Thanks for the smile.

OMG.... I love them!!!!!!!!

Jill M. said...

LOL! Perfect, I'll take one!

Jill said...

That's pretty funny. Great idea. If it were me, on the back of your cute pink T-shirt, I might say let's have martinis or wine. But that's just me!!

That's fantastic! I love it! If you could swap out CCRM for something more generic, I would definately buy it!

Niki said...

I think you have the right idea and I love the t-shirt! After several years of IF having a sense of humor about ART is what keeps me sane. I got a good laugh and smile, which was exactly what I needed, so thank you!

Holy crap! DH and I mentally designed that exact same t-shirt during our consult when they gave me on of their damn pens! I have to sent this to him.

Add me to the list ~ i'll take one! Thanks for the smile! :-)

Sky said...

You definitely have a mind for business. Love it! And you could swap CCRM for other clinic names.

hee hee hee

Tremendous! :)

Polly Gamwich said...

This is TOO funny. When I saw that T-Shirt, I had to show DH.

It's so true - all the BFN'ers get is NOTHIN'.

I hope I don't have to buy one :(

Swap out CCRM for Cornell and I'm in. I love the part of the back. You should put those up with a variety of style options at Cafe Press. Maybe make a bit of money back.

The fashion trend nowadays on shirts are usually a simple print or just a plain text or tagline. Whether what color or what type of fabric of the shirt are used, the print will speaks for it. Just be sure that the statement or tagline you used is related to your personality. Some shirts are used for promotional process.
