Spill the Tee
By: Katrina Munchez
Hello and welcome to Spill the Tee! We are your one stop learn how to design and shop blog site for all things graphic, custom, and fashion friendly. This week we’ll be pulling inspiration from all of our moms out there. That’s right this post is about celebrating the matriarchy of incredible women! We’re breaking it down with personal mother’s only timeline to help you get to thinking about Mother’s Day gift ideas! P.S. its Sunday, May 13 this year; see we always have you covered. Leave the burping rags on the counter; it’s time to Spill the Tee!
Nine Months Later
Our first Mother’s Day idea is for our first time mommies. These women are getting the hang of things. As a child of a mother, I would like to personally interject and let you know that yall never get it perfect. Don’t worry; we, for the most part, come out just fine! Once you become a mother, you’re kind of one for life. Twenty four hours a day seven days a week, rarely any sick days, and probably even less vacation time. I don’t know why you signed up for this, but life has promoted you with such an outstanding position! You are superhuman mother life giver because for real, at one point in time your body can house another potential life. We at Spill the Tee are going to cherish that awesomeness with gifted appreciation!
We love you for being the unstoppable force of trial and error type mom! Embrace you. Motivate you. Love you, and I guess your kids too. When you need a silent pick me up go to the kitchen, and pull out your favorite Mug Motivation cup. Fill it with your secret ice cream stash because you’re a good mom that hides sweets from your kids. Not your fault that an actual drop of sugar turns them into rambunctious gremlins. Cozy up on the couch in your most comfy fleece sweatshirt. You know the one with the mom inspired quote on it that literally makes you feel like, “Yeah, so what? Sometimes I don’t know where my kids are; they’re really good at hide and seek.” and catch up on your shows! Yes mother, feel good, look good, and take time for you.
Mid Life Mommas
Remember when your kids were cute? Remember when they would follow you around like your shadow? Now they’re grown and make plans that don’t often enough include you, unless you’re driving them somewhere. The hustle and bustle of life is catching up with both of you. This part of the blog is directed towards your kids. No matter how grown they think they are, call them over make them read these words!
Let’s face it kid, you’re not as cute as you used to be. So for this Mother’s Day, you’re actually going to have to try this year. Let’s brainstorm, “What do all moms love?” If you said, “Nostalgic childhood photos” we’re eerily on the same page. Photos are exactly what you need to remind your mom of the good old days before you learned to argue. We’re going to elevate your parent’s photo book by putting your undeniably used-to-be precious face ON EVERYTHING!
Your mom can’t resist a gift as cheesy as this! Shop and let our Ladies V-Neck and Tri Blend Dolman T Shirts decorate your smiling face this Mother’s Day! Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you’re decorating your products:
- Make sure you’re logged in
- Choose a picture of you looking better than your siblings
- Find a product that fits your giftees personal style
- Keep the colors and images bold for best impact
- Browse through our store graphics for inspiration
- Save your design
Once you’ve got the perfect pictures picked, now it’s time to search MakeATeeOnline.com for top products to plaster your face on. We have awesome custom tees in our apparel sections, and other super cool items like our 100% customizable mouse pads that every mom with a computer loves. Be prepared to get into the favorite child good graces!
The last group of mother lovers we’re gifting for is our momma’s momma. The matriarch herself, grandma! She is the queen maternal contributor to your family’s feminine greatness. What do you get a woman who’s experienced it all? Seems tricky huh? Well let’s think about all the things that we know grandma loves. She loves her family, cleaning, cigarettes, flowers, scary movies and above all else her telanovelas, her soap operas… grandma loves her shows!
So how do we translate her love for drama packed stories into a gift that she will actually use? What is one thing she does every day? Sleep! That’s right; let grandma snuggle up to her favorite novella stars and t.v. personalities with a custom pillow case set! You can even decorate a warm and fuzzy plush blanket for her with your own personal message. This Mother’s Day treat is sure to show that you love and care about her.
Next Week’s Tease
Mothers are beyond special, and without them, or some extremely scientific experimentation none of us would be here reading this entry. We know there are countless qualities that bind you and your mother to such a unique relationship, and that is why we encourage you, our readers to get creative with your Mommy Appreciation Day gift designs! Stay inspired. Gift giving doesn’t have to be stressful, so keep it light, funny and a hit of personal if you like. Reminisce on how it feels to share love, appreciation, food and good memories with the ones you care about. Be sure to thank yo momma for all those times she put up with you, and held you when you needed a hug.
And if all else fails get her a MakeATeeOnline.com gift card so she can do her thing. Don’t be too upset that she didn’t fall in love with whatever you designed because let’s be honest, you’re do graphic designer, and you use our coupon code KAT2, so it’s not even like you paid full price for her gift anyways! If she loves it, which I’m sure she will, @MakeATeeOnline with you and your Mother’s Day selfie queen to be featured on our site! Next week we’re diving deep into the unknown for another semi informative semi humorous post on all this MakeATee.
