Personalized Stick Figure T-shirts and Gifts

I've loved stick figures as long back as I can remember. As a child, we would take an old book and draw a stick figure on the bottom corner of every page on the right hand side of the book, changing the direction of the arms or legs or tiling the head a bit one way or another on the pages. Then, when flipping the pages one after another on top of each other the stick figures would appear to be moving, dancing, walking. Great fun!
Our Stick Figures gallery has numerous stick figure designs for every member of the family from ballerina stick figures for your niece who is just starting ballet lessons, football stick figures for your brother the high school football star, rock climbing stick figures for your uncle, firefighter stick figures for dad the firefighter, nurse stick figures for mom the RN, and a whole lot more, in fact, hundreds of designs! Designs include categories of hobbies, occupations, sports, school, music, recreation and vacationing, holidays, wedding, and other fun designs. You can personalize these stick figure mugs, mousepads, T-shirts, and other items by simply adding text or a name before ordering. They make great gifts for high school cheerleading squads, volleyball teams, baseball teams, football teams, or band members! Take a look at some of the cute stick figure items we sell!

St. Patrick's Day T-shirts and Gifts

It's almost Valentine's Day, the day of love, the day of chocolates and valentine cards and sentiments, a day some look forward to with excitement, another looks forward to reluctantly.
The next major holiday is St. Patrick's Day. I celebrated last St. Patrick's Day in Chicago, IL. My son in law was there for his fantasy baseball get together, and my daughter, the grandkids, and I toured the immediate area surrounding our motel on St. Patrick's Day. Like us, there was a lot of tourists and I suppose locals as well out and about that day, and most everyone seemed to have either a St. Patrick's Day T-shirt, button, or at least was wearing green. Although we didn't get to see the parade, we did get to see the dyed green Chicago River. It was exciting. I'm not sure why but it was. I went back to Chicago again in August and spent a lot of time walking around the downtown area, and the river is actually much more beautiful in the summer than when green, but still, it's a tradition and traditions are fun!
What is the origin of St. Patrick's Day? Taken from

St. Patrick is believed to have driven the snakes from Ireland. Once a pagan himself, St. Patrick is one of Christianity's most widely known figures.
The modern secular holiday is based on the original Christian saint's feast day also thought to be the date of the saint's death. In 1737, Irish immigrants to the United States began observing the holiday publicly in Boston and held the first St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City in 1766.
Today, the tradition continues with people from all walks and heritages by wearing green, eating Irish food, and attending parades. St. Patrick's Day is bursting with folklore; from the shamrock to the leprechaun and to pinching those that are not wearing green.

Union Eight invites you to shop our galleries for some funny, cute, or traditional St. Patrick's Day T-shirts, buttons, mugs, and other St. Paddy's Day items! If you're looking for a green beer T-shirt for your St. Patrick's Day partying we have many! Looking for an Irish themed Tshirt you can wear all year? We have those too!

Big Sisters

I was thinking about my big sister tonight and how I was born on her 12th birthday. There are seven kids in our family, six girls, one boy. The sister who I share a birthday with is the oldest, and one of the sweetest, most generous people I know. Big sisters are so special. They share not only the same house, parents, and other siblings with you, but they share dreams, fears, accomplishments and successes, sorrows, and joys.
Celebrate the big sister when the new baby arrives, or even before she arrives! Big sisters are special, amazing, and your best friend!
At Union Eight galleries you can find a lot of cute, colorful, big sister design T-shirts, mugs, buttons, magnets, and other items sure to delight the big sister and make the birth of a new baby even more memorable. She'll love wearing her big sister T-shirt to let the world know her new little, best friend has arrived!
