Happy 2017, ya’ll! It’s finally here, and even though it doesn’t feel much different from yesterday it is up to us to ensure this year is better than the last. Also, online shop now live!
My first step for this year is the launch of my brand spanking new online shop (mentioned in my last blog post posted last year). Yes, the online shop is now live, in beta mode.
The idea originated from my love for hand-lettering, positive biblical messages and graphic tees. I decided to integrate the three and this is what I came up with. Most products of this nature are found mainly in the States and don’t ship to Canada. So I decided to create some Canadian designed products.
Here’s some of the products. The Positivi-Tees sported by me. 🙂 I had a lot of fun at the shoot. Photo cred goes to Magdalena M
In addition to my creations, I have also decided to make available the Sari Books, as part of my “Giving Back” feature. Sari books are made by women rescused out of the sex trade from Sonagachi, Calcutta in India. Did you know it is the largest red light district in South-east Asia? Many of them are still children, which breaks my heart. No child should ever be robbed of a childhood- but reality tells us otherwise. Astonishing to think really. It is my hope to generate a loyal client-base so these women can remain employed and won’t have to be forced into something they do not want to do. To read more on this click here.
I am currently low on the books as most of them sold before I could launch the website. But I will get more and they will go on the site. Be sure to subscribe for updates on products, as this seems to be a hot item.
So check out the shop
For this launch, all tees and mugs can be purchased at 15% off with the code “CGDLOVE” on checkout. Don’t forget.
