If you've been around these parts for any length of time, then you might remember my last venture, Olive Lane. Olive Lane was my online storefront that I ran for about 4 years. It started with jewelry, until I could learn the ins & outs of the back end, then moved on to graphic tees. I started it mostly because I had an idea & wanted to test it. In all honesty, I wasn't sure if it would work. Turns out I was pretty good at designing tees and 6 years later, I'm still wearing that very first tee I designed.
This past month, one of my cute nieces called me up & wondered if I'd be up to help her design a few tees for a fundraising effort. She's headed out on an humanitarian trip to Argentina this summer & wanted to sell tees to raise money. Can you guess how quickly I jumped up & said, 'me! me! me!'
Yep, that quick.
I'm not sure what my biggest driving force was: getting to design again (yes! I've heard your cries for more tees!) or the fact that my niece was willing to do some work to earn that money. Probably a little bit of both!
We came up with 3 different designs and each comes in kid and adult sizes. Not gonna lie, when she showed up with boxes of tees, I got a little giddy inside. Head over to her website (yes, she built that herself!!!) and stock up on what are sure to be your favorite summer tees!
As a quick FYI on fits:
Hola Bonita: relaxed fit, true to size
Be the Good: fitted, size up (I wear a M)
Llama: this is printed on a Men's V-neck & I promise will be your favorite fitting shirt of all time. It is supposed to be a relaxed fit. If you are on the fence on size, size down.
Kids: all fit true to size
Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
