This week’s blog was a hard one. I have recently had some car issues and that kind of takes the shine off shopping. After spending the weekend (yes this blog is late again) thinking about it, I finally came up with something neat. I want this bag that is on Zazzle.com, and since Zazzle is a great site for customizing what you want, I did just that. I designed a bag with a logo from Flocked.Media that my sister Krista had designed. I have never found the original image, but it is a big enough image to tile in a pattern. This particular bag on Zazzle only lets you customize the pattern in certain areas, however, it lets you choose the colors for the rest. I took some screenshots to demonstrate what I mean.
So this is the bag that I designed to honor my sister. I was able to find a color for the front from the choices that was similar enough to a color in the logo. Then I chose black for the trim. I messed around with colors for a while, and this is ultimately what I chose. I love being able to customize things to suit my tastes. Hell, who doesn’t? It is wonderful.
Anyway, the bag is available in a variety of sizes, of which, I chose small. Small best suits my needs… plus these custom bags don’t exactly come cheap. The key, I find, is waiting for a sale to come my way. Since design inspiration and sales don’t typically coincide, I like to design things as I think of them so that when a sale does hit, I am ready to go without debating colors or patterns. So now, we wait…
