All I Wanted for Christmas...

Last week, I shared some decorating inspiration from my side of the family with my mom's Christmas trees. This week, let's take a quick look at the creative juices that flow from The Hubster's side of the family.



My in-laws discovered the existence of my blog while we were vacationing together this summer. My darling niece insisted on knowing what I was doing on the computer in the afternoons when my kiddos were asleep. There is now no end to the entertainment they receive from reading my musings.



I think they captured the essence of my blog perfectly. Some seashells, glitter, paint and big fake bird. They nailed it. In case you can't read it, the back says "A Work in Progres...". Thank goodness that they've copyrighted the design.



Clearly, The Hubster wasn't nearly as amused as I was.



Do you think there are merchandising possibilities here?



Many thanks to the 10 or so creative minds that designed and created our newest family heirloom.

Ya know you could have real T-shirts made like that (but maybe more two dimensionable) and give them out to advertise your blog!

Merchandising opportunities? I'd buy one of "The Hubster" t-shirts! I actually chuckled aloud, causing my very own "Hubster" to ask what I was up to.
