It’s Friday!

Hey, it’s already the end of the week! Word of advice:


It’s Thursday.


It’s Thursday.

The week is almost over.

And although it’s frosty and frigid outside, look on the bright side! This little guy is.

All about the details (a post on packaging).

If there’s one thing I enjoy more than receiving a brand spankin’ new product, it’s unwrapping the packaging.

I know, I sound like a big lame-o. But I can’t pretend that I don’t find joy in a clean, pristine box with quirky copy and gorgeous graphic design.

For my Threads of Hope project, I tried to brainstorm some inventive (and cost-efficient) ways to package my product. I had the choice between creating custom bags, boxes or simply wrapping it with a bow on top.

Here are some pretty sweet examples I’ve found online:




After a little bit of research (and a lotta bit of compromises with my reasonable inner self), I decided to create a printed sleeve and a custom tag for my Hustle Hard Have Hope T-shirts. Check ’em out!


A shameless plug (for a really good cause).

This year, I’ve taken on a very special project for a very special organization. The project is called Threads of Hope, an original line of apparel and accessories raising funds and awareness for The Children’s Wish Foundation. All proceeds raised from this project are going directly to a Wish Child, helping make the dream come true for a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

On Tuesday, November 20, 2012, I will officially be launching the Hustle Hard Have Hope tees on my online store. They actually arrived at my doorstep yesterday night (I was super stoked)! Here’s a sneak peak:

For the next couple weeks leading up to November 20, I am hosting a social media contest. If you share the picture below, you will have the chance to win one of two Hustle Hard shirts in the style and colour of your choosing!
