If You're Broke, Fix It

These are trying times for so many people.  I'm not too proud to admit that I have an anemic bank account.  Truth is, that statement could be made by any one of millions of people in this country.  I do not consider myself special or different than anyone.

History has many rags to riches stories.  What I think makes the difference is an attitude of not accepting your given situation.  

Some time ago the City of Chicago decided to tear down the low income housing buildings, the projects.  You heard people complaining that the only homes they'd ever known were going to be destroyed.  Generations of families would no longer have these buildings to live in anymore.  The fact is, there was never supposed to be generations growing up in the projects.  The housing was meant to be a resting stop along a life's journey.  If you needed a place to stay and regroup your efforts and get a plan together for the rest of your journey, the projects were a place to stay temporarily.  Somewhere the "temporarily" part was lost in the plan.

I am fortunate to have a roof over my head and food to eat for my family.  Recently, I've lost a few customers that had been sources of income.  Things here have quickly gotten very tight.  So, what do I do?

God gave me a creative mind.  That is my gift.  I have always been the happiest when utilizing my gift.

These were fun, My Art Gallery.

I love video

And my friends from MDA Camp days know I could let myself go.

Well, recently I've been trying to get my creative side to help me financially.  I created this website awhile ago, but just recently returned to working on it.

With the Olympics coming soon I have been creating what I hope are cool designs.  Here are some sample designs that are available now.

The buying public will decide.  I'll be creating shirts with humor too.  

All I ask is that you look around the shop.  There are items of many styles and colors to choose from.  Pass the word around.  Tell your friends, tell your enemies, tell the grocery store clerk.  I'd be very grateful.

If you have any ideas or suggestions please share with me.
