Kanye West is not shy about speaking his mind. He's not always careful with his choice of words. He's off the cuff, he doesn't have much of an internal filter and that tends to make him a bit... polarizing. People tend to either believe he's a genius or a complete fool. I believe he's a genius. And I will talk until I'm blue in the face about this (anyone who knows me can vouch for that) and it's really just as simple as looking underneath all of the swagger, you will see a smart, creative, ambitious person who was never content to be just a producer, or just a rapper - he pushes himself and his boundaries always in an effort to be awesome. He also encourages everyone else to do the same. (Seriously, I was lucky enough to catch the Yeezus concert and one of his rants was about how people don't try hard enough to be awesome). (Also, best fucking concert ever.) In a world where we tell everyone that he or she is a special snowflake, there are no winners or losers, everyone gets a trophy for participation, Kanye recognizes the fact that a rising tide will lift all the boats - if we strive for better, we can make a positive impact. And, let's be honest, that's a pretty good message to put out there.

At one time, Kanye had the greatest Twitter feed of all time - it alternated between funny, sublime, introspective and ridiculous (with some CAPS LOCK thrown in for good measure). If you miss his tweets as much as I do, what better way to keep them in your heart and home than to have your favorite(s) immortalized in stitching?

Really, though, he's just saying what we're all thinking - who amongst us hasn't lamented the inability to procure a decent cherub-decorated rug or, at one time or another, needed to apologize to Taylor Swift?

It all started with his airline water bottle complaint - but I've stitched dozens of different ones from his Twitter feed - there's usually a Yeezus tweet for every occasion.

I've also stitched a variety of others - from personal twitter accounts, business accounts, even non-Ye celebrities, so if there's a tweet you love, you can get it. (Please note on tweets from verified celebrity accounts, I'm only open to doing actual tweets from their accounts, not faked screenshots) - just put a note in the "Notes to Seller" section of the checkout, or send me a message here or tweet me at @snozzberry or email me at dropdeadquirky (@) gmail, or leave a note on the windshield of my car, or have it skywritten above Orange County - what I'm saying is that I'm reachable and I like hearing from people and I want to make sure you get the tweet to make your life complete.

Please note - since each one is hand-stitched to order, please allow up to 2 weeks to get it stitched - most likely it won't take that long, but I'm still just one girl with only 8 fingers and 2 thumbs and these have lots and lots of little stitches. But - BONUS - because each of these are completely hand-stitched, each one, even if it's a tweet I've stitched 100 of, is One Of A Kind. (I feel like I should say something like how they're made with love, but that's really not something I'd ever say)

As always, I'm open for commissions if there is something missing from your life that can be translated into thread.

And if you can't get enough of me, feel free to follow me all over social media, I'm on Instagram (Supervelma) (this is probably where you'll see the most of my art), on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/DropDeadQuirky), on Tumblr (http://supervelma.tumblr.com/), and on Twitter (https://twitter.com/snozzberry)

***if this listing is showing "SOLD OUT", but you feel like your life wouldn't be complete without one, please send me a message here or email me at dropdeadquirky (at) gmail.com because I'm probably still accepting commissions
