Hit or Miss


“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.

    The Jack-o-lantern bandana is so perfect! I cannot wait to order it for Addie. Keep doing what you’re doing — so many people love it!

    Sayb your creations are always so beautiful! It definitely shows that every single product you put out has had careful planning and preparing. Most of my tags that I own are rejects and I cherish every single one!
    You create works of art that are wearable and I think we would all agree that they’re all AMAZING.

    Sayb, your hard work and dedication ALWAYS shows through, even on the products that may be considered a “miss”. Things in life hardly ever go according to plan, and that doesn’t mean they’re bad or a miss, it just means its different than expected. This halloween release is different than the original plan but is still seriously amazing & I can’t wait for everyone to get to see it!

    My dear sweet Sayb. Just because it didn’t go as planned doesn’t mean it’s a miss! These are still screaming Halloween and I think they look dope! You kill it every time. And these are no exception to that! You try your hardest and we know you put your heart and soul into every release. I bet people will still love it! I know I do ❤️

    It is challenging to always create art for other people, since tastes are different. Keep up the amazing work! We look forward to every release, even if we are unable to purchase. We love seeing the products you make and following your growth. We even have purchased products for our extended family.
    Take care,
