I’ve had this idea for such a long time (like 3 years!) and it’s finally here! It’s my take on the phrase “Messy Hair Don’t Care” and is inspired mostly by my kitties because I am always covered in SO.MUCH.CAT.HAIR. after snuggling with them! My pups have actually not been bad in the shedding department. But either way, I don’t mind–nothing a lint roller can’t solve :)
These t-shirts also represent something that is close to my heart–10% of proceeds from every tee will be donated to The Lange Foundation, a no-kill shelter in Los Angeles. They work tirelessly to give homeless dogs, cats, and animals a second chance and loving forever homes. The 10 also represents the month of October, which is when I adopted my first dog from them, Lucciano, who became the love of my life. I am also so lucky that they then brought Bernard and kitties Bubba, Jefrey, Makani, and Samone into my life! Each of them have taught me so much about unconditional love and joy. It means a lot to me to be able to support the place and amazing people who have enriched my life in such an important way.
The t-shirts are currently available for pre-order for $28 each in sizes XS-XL. Pre-order perks include free shipping plus some fun–and useful–goodies while supplies last! No code is needed, just head to the links below to learn more and to place your order:
I am anticipating that they will be ready to ship in about 2 weeks but will contact you once I have an exact time frame! The last day to place pre-orders is Tuesday, May 12th.
A few more things I wanted to share about this product:
These t-shirts are loose and oversized so whether you are walking your dog or lounging with your cats you can stay comfy! I chose this style not only for the soft and light material but also because it’s a style that has been favored by all shapes and body types! You also don’t have to worry about bra straps showing and you can style this tee in a number of ways. The links above include a size chart but if you have any questions please let me know!
Social Responsibility: These tees are from a company called Next Level–they are a member of the Fair Labor Association and have a rigorous process where every single factory and sourcing location is vetted by their team and meets their standards.
It’s always a little nerve wracking to put your work–especially something new–out into the world but I hope you like these designs and that you can feel how much they mean to me :) Here are a few more pics (you can see more in the listings):
Lastly, here is a photo of the very special animals who have changed my life! From left to right: Lucciano, Valentine, Bernard, Makani, Bubba, Jefrey, and Samone. They are all Lange Foundation alumni except for Valentine, who I found.
I’m so excited to share some new cards for a cause that are now available in the shop! I’ve been working on updating a few designs and adding some new ones for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Teacher Appreciation Week and here they are:
FOR TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK:Thank You For Helping Me Bloom All Teacher Appreciation cards will provide 10 meals for children at The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool and Nursery in Motherwell, South Africa!
All of these cards for a cause and more are available in my shop, click here to head over and take a look (and don’t forget orders of $35 or more automatically receive free shipping!) I hope you like them and they help you celebrate some very special people in your lives! :)
PS: I’m working on more designs and some brand new products so stay tuned!

A NOTE TO YOU
And here’s a note to you about some things that have been on my mind and what I’d like to continue sharing with you/what you can expect to see from me (below the image is the note typed out).
With everything that’s going on, I’ve been thinking (like many of you) about what I want to share and what I want to talk about.
On one hand, it seems to not make sense to not address it because it has affected so much. Things aren’t normal and I recognize that so many people are going through hard times–much tougher than me.
On the other hand, I have found that having some sense of normalcy and being able to take a break from all the news and headlines is something I have really wanted and needed, along with staing connected to loved ones.
With that in mind, I am going to finish what I started (I did miss a few days and that’s OK) and complete the #marchmeetthemaker challenge (a challenge I am participating in on Instagram). It goes back to my word for the year, self integrity and finishing something I started.
I also hope the things I share here, in my social media, and in my newsletter, helps to give you a little break, some creative inspiration, and helps us stay connected.
Be well and safe and take good care–I think our community here is so amazing and know that we will continue to help each other get through tough times like we always have! <3
Happy 2020! I hope yours is off to a great start–I have been feeling so excited and positive about this new year and decade! To help me gather my thoughts, reflect, and organize, these are some of the PDFs I am starting off my year with and sharing with you in case they can help you too—the weekly planner is definitely the one I use most and I feel lost if I haven’t filled one out for the week! I think the key to everything is planning ahead—I might not be the best at doing that but I’m working on it! ? There’s something for your everyday, week, month, and year.
All of these PDFs are free and are sent to newsletter subscribers—if you’d like access to them, you can sign up by clicking here. (Don’t forget to confirm your subscription!) When you join, you’ll automatically be sent the latest newsletter with these PDFs. (If you don’t receive anything let me know and be sure to check junk/spam folders and updates/promo tabs since they end up there sometimes.) You will also get access to all previous PDFs that have been sent out and I email you new ones at least once a month!
I really love creating these—sometimes they are inspired by something I’m looking for and can’t find, other times they are based on the season we are headed into, and sometimes it’s just something I think you will find useful! It’s my way of saying thank you for letting me pop up in your inbox and I hope you enjoy them! :)
