My Favs, Their Favs, Part Four

As you may know if you've been following my blog for the past several days, I've been browsing the galleries of Union Eight gallery keepers and choosing three of my favorite designs of theirs, then showing you each designers own three favorites. Today I'm browsing the galleries of Teewit which has an amazing selection of baby designs, designs for grandparents in every imaginable sense of the word, awesome maternity T-shirts, great T-shirts and gifts for moms and dads, aunts and uncles, and cool designs you can easily customize yourself! I have browsed the galleries of Teewit before and blogged about some of the designs, and I can say that if you are looking for some humorous baby or maternity designs, you will find a great selection! Teewit is on sale at lowest prices for the year today, November 19th, so get them while they're on sale!
Here's my three favorites from Teewit!

Ok, now let's take a look at the three favorite designs of the owner of Teewit. I haven't yet looked to see what they are, but I'm pretty sure at least one of hers will match mine as it's quite a unique parody design!

As predicted, the Makin' Doo Parody T-shirt is also one of her favorites. I can see why as it's such a creative and oh so cool design!

My Favs, Their Favs Part Three

On to part three of the My Favs, Their Favs segment. Today I am browsing the galleries of Cowpie Creek Gifts. If you are looking for fun, colorful, eye catching designs this shop has what you are looking for. Oh, and did I mention funny? There are so many designs that I see when browsing this designer's galleries that make me smile or make me laugh out loud...hard. It's going to be tough for me to pick only three designs because I have so many favorites when it comes to these galleries.
Because I am drawn to kids and kids designs, my first favorite is from her Cowpie Creek gallery. It's colorful, cute, and I believe it portrays just how kids feel!

I have blogged about the next design before, one that stands out in my mind and one I love, in part because the message is so important, something for all of us to think about, remember, and most importantly do something about. That of course is doing our part in keeping our planet clean!

My third favorite design is one that makes me laugh every time I see it. Ah, getting old has it's perks doesn't it. I think I feel a nap coming on now! Feel free to laugh, this t-shirt is hilarious!

So that's my three favorites, what about the designer, the very talented and creative owner of Cowpie Creek Gifts? What are three of her favorite designs? Let's find out!

As you can see, the owner of Cowpie Creek Gifts has chosen three different environmental awareness designs as her favorites. I would say that means that keeping our earth clean and healthy, doing our part to recycle, reuse, reduce, to spread the message, is important to her. I think that's wonderful! If you dont' do your part to help save our planet, please read this and you might think again. Do your part, please.

My Favs, Their Favs, Part Two

In yesterday's post I mentioned how I often wonder when browsing the galleries of other Union Eight members if they have their favorites, and so I asked each of them to email me three of their favorite designs and I'd post three of my favs as well. Today I am looking through the gallery of TeeShirtsTShirts Awesome Tee Shirts and Gifts. It's not going to be easy for me to pick three favorite designs as there are so many that I love! This gallery is owned by the talented artist who created the Union Eight logo, and her designs are amazing, creative, and totally top notch!
TeeShirtsTShirts Awesome Tee Shirts and Gifts has holiday designs, political designs, real embroidered items, cool shoes, monograms, school and teacher designs, sports, music, wedding, even Twilight Movie designs!
Picking three favorites wasn't an easy task, but here's my three!
I just love this World's Best Teacher design. With the muted colors and circular text design around the apple I find it to be one of the most creative and tasteful teacher designs I've seen.

Who could resist this beautiful deer photo mousepad? It's not often I see a deer with the felt antlers and the deer almost seems to be posing for the photo...calm, relaxed, happy.

The Bride Cake Bride T-shirt is one of my favorites as I totally love the wedding cake design. It is a unique, modern wedding design! Well, that sums it up for my three favorites, now let's see what the designer, creator, gallery keeper of TeeShirtsTShirts Awesome Tee Shirts and Gifts has chosen for her three favorites! I honestly have not looked at them yet as I want to be surprised myself and compare my favs to her favs without first knowing what hers are. Here they are!

This time my choice of favs wasn't nearly that of the creator/designer/gallery keepers favorites. She chose an embroidery design that you can easily customize with your university name, an awesome argyle design shoe, and a Dad design that I have to admit I do love as well. So there you have it! Tomorrow I'll post the favorites for yet another member of Union Eight!

My Favs, Their Favs, Part One

Browsing through the galleries of beautiful products designed by other members of Union Eight always leaves me amazed at their talent and creativity. I wonder what inspires each of them, what motivates them to create a specific design, and I wonder if they have any that they consider their favorites. And so I asked each member of Union Eight to email me with three of their own favorite designs. I'll post them here and I'll also post three of my favorites of their designs. It will be interesting to see if my favorites match their favorites in any instances.
Today I will focus on the designs of artist/creator/gallery keeper October Child Beautiful T-shirts And Family Gifts.
One of my very favorite designs by October Child is the girl's names designs. It's an awesome, hip design in popular pink and brown, and you're sure to find the specific girls name you are looking for.
Although I love all the cute designs from
Small Potatoes Designs Cartoon T-shirts And Gifts, I do have one that I can say is one of my very favorites. I guess I'm still a kid at heart because I love these Small Potatoes designs!

For my third favorite design I had to choose one from
Mad Conductor Music T-shirts & Gifts as I am always so blown away when browsing that gallery. If you are a music lover, in a band, love to sing, play a musical instrument or know someone who does this gallery is just amazing! Here's one of my favs!

Now you know what my three favs are, but what about the designer, the creator, the owner of October Child Beautiful T-shirts And Family Gifts? Well, I asked her, and she submitted to me three of her very favorite designs. I haven't looked at them yet as I want to see how closely her favorites match my favorites. I'm excited to find out, so here's her three favorites!

So there you have it! Her three favorites are similar to my three favorites in that we both love the Small Potatoes designs, both picked a design from Mad Conductor Music T-shirts & Gifts, and we both love the hip pink and brown design, although hers is a teacher T-shirt and mine was the girls' names T-shirt. With designs like this, everything is a favorite!

Happy Birthday Baby

My little twin niece and nephew are nearing the age when mommy and daddy are starting to think about their first birthday and planning for their party. My niece expressed an interest in having birthday T-shirts personalized for them with their names on them. I asked her what she had in mind. Because they are twins she wanted something matching but that both a boy and a girl could wear. She decided on the Twins 1st Birthday T-shirts from Kid's and Baby Birthday as she loves the two baby peas in a pod design.

These T-shirts are perfect for the twins first birthday celebration! She's already starting to look at what they might like for their second birthday, but I think that will depend on their personalities and what they gravitate toward by that second year. My grandson loved trains when he turned two and this was his 2nd birthday T-shirt!

By the time he turned three he wasn't quite so crazy about trains anymore but was really starting to get into sports, especially hockey and soccer. We have just the T-shirts for the little sports enthusiasts third birthday as well!

With over 60 different birthday themes to choose from, I'm sure you can find a birthday theme design to please any child on his or her birthday. You can even add your child's name to a t-shirt on the spot using Zazzle's easy customization tool!

Kid's and Baby Birthday is a proud member of Union Eight.
