Tribute Shirt for HAITI. Hand designed, hand printed by me 🙂 Check it out let me know what you think!


‘Tribute Shirt For HAITI’


This tee was designed after an Haitian Stamp issued in 1958 by the United Nations. It was reissued by the American Red Cross in 1959. I chose this design because it is both visually interesting and also represents a slice of Haiti’s history.

***%50 of the proceeds from this shirt will be donated to the the American Red Cross to support emergency relief and recovery efforts to help those people affected by the earthquake in Haiti***

Each shirt is hand printed on super-soft 100% ringspun cotton.

Golden yellow motif printed on deep red fabric.


Adult: S, M, L, XL


Helping people AND  looking fly 😉  Its a win win folks :p


Can we talk about my (tomato) seedlings March 9, 2010

And how they’re growing, and how amazing it is??

Let me put this in perspective-  used to not be able  keep a houseplant alive.  Now I can plant seeds that are barely even a millemeter in diameter only to have them to emerge as plants just a few day later? Days people.  I am humbled and amazed!! I will soon post a detailed description of how I did it so that you too can share in all this vegetable gardeny joy 😉

That Ambijawn…She may be emo, but she is oh so sincere.


No Introduction needed. I lub this woman ;) March 4, 2010
