“Create something today, even if it sucks.”
With every release I go through several phases. The first one is always hard, the not knowing what to do, what colors to use, what will sell or will look good together. The second is either “wow these will be amazing” or “I’m not too sure of this one”. The next few are a rollercoaster within a few days, washing them out and being concerned. Taking them out of the washer and thinking “well they still need to dry and then we will see.” Ironing them and photographing them and still trying to decide if I like them or not.
Then comes showing them to everyone. Now, I don’t have to go on another tangent about how amazing my team is but they are always supportive. Whether they like it or not, they are always encouraging.
To me, my bandanas and tags are my art. Art that I have poured my heart and soul into. Art that I love to share with the world. Art that warms my heart when I see them on your pups. Art that has seen more blood, sweat, and tears than I want to admit.
Each release I wonder if it’ll be a hit or miss. Either way, I know I tried my hardest. I know that I can’t make a hit each time and that’s okay.
Halloween is my jam, it’s one of my favorite holidays and I’m my favorite season. Unfortunately, to me, Halloween was a miss this year and I’m sorry.
