something else entirely

Here's what I was going to blog about earlier:

My jackets came in!!!!Actually, now that I think about it, I don't think I really mentioned it before. I'm trying to be all...business- get the word out- savvy here. So I ordered up some memo pads, and pens, and window clings for my car, I've even got business cards. But hey, I thought "wouldn't it be great if I can promote myself with clothing?" When I first looked into doing this, it was a lot colder, and I'm cold natured anyway- so I always have a jacket or sweater on. So I ordered jackets to have the name of my company embroidered on them.The end result:I'm actually really shocked by how awesome these are. I think the flash on my camera made them look a little too shiny here. They are this great soft track jacket, made by American Apparel. But I didn't actually buy them from American Apparel. I got them from http://www.brokenarrowwear.com/ These guys are great. And based out of Des Moines Iowa, on a street that's one exit south of the greatest food you'll ever eat in your life (Machine Shed!)
Honestly though, I didn't know that's where they were located when I began looking into getting them done. But yeah. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these jackets.
The logo looks fantabulous! (Ok, that's not my logo, I haven't yet figured out how to make my logo work with embroidery, so it's just the name for now.) I was pretty worried that these were going to come back all whonkie because the sample image of what their embroidery looks like has all of these gaps and things...but they don't have any gaps! They look fantastic!
So if you happen to be Tania, my mom, my dad, David, Rena or myself you will be the proud new owners of a jacket that looks like this :) (as soon as I see you next) If you aren't one of the above mentioned, but have an interest in promoting my business by way of your clothing, shoot me an email and we can discuss.
I am looking into getting some t-shirts printed up. They will probably be unisex though, just so I can get the most bang for my buck. Although I can already hear my heart breaking because they have some really cute shirts online...I might attempt some prototypes first with iron on transfers...we'll see. (those might end up for sale on my website- stay tuned)
One last look before I go:

You need to order doggie jackets so Mosley can have one!
