Ego Boost? Please?

"Ready to Fly"

I went out on a limb (har har) and decided to try my hand at a design challenge at Threadless. I'm completely freaked out because putting myself out there for judgment isn't really my norm.

And now I'm like an obsessed maniac watching the votes and getting very emotional over how many votes there are, about the overall score.

What was I thinking?!

So, if you like this design...or even if you only like me...would you very much mind going over to Threadless to vote for me? I'd hugely appreciate your support!

Pretty please?


  1. I voted!! It's a great design. It's very "Poe". You made me chuckle with your post. I've been there. And here's what I learned: You can't do art for anyone else. You always have to do it for yourself and then if people love it, great, if they don't no sweat because YOU love it. Then, you won't have any stress over what anyone else thinks. :)

  2. Ha ha! Thanks, Laura!

    I think the thing is that I do love this design. And I feel like a petulant child when it comes to other people loving it as much!

    The things I do to myself! LOL!

  3. I'm trying to vote! I have to re-sign up- shouldn't do these things right away in the morning.....can't remember my login! anyhow- this design is great and I would wear it in a heart beat! Love the colors.

  4. Aw, thank you so much!

    I made it my goal to make something that I would want to hopes that others would feel the same way.


  5. I can't seem to get my vote to take. I will keep trying.

    The design is great. I like the color contrast.

  6. Thanks, Alex! I had to fight with Threadless a bit the other night. It worked from one computer but not the other and not from my phone...

    ...ah, technology! Ha ha!

    Still, thank you! I appreciate it!
