The world is beautiful.

In April of 2011, my husband Jerry suffered an aortic dissection. We had medical insurance, but we were woefully underinsured for that four and a half hour emergency open-heart surgery and the ten day hospital stay that followed. After a year of medical bills and the constant struggle to pay them and still keep up with the other household expenses, working two jobs even after Jerry returned to work, I wanted another way.
My search eventually led me to novelty mug design through print on demand. I wouldn't have to keep inventory or invest in complicated and expensive equipment, I could just create designs that people would enjoy and buy for themselves or loved ones. But as I researched popular designs to get a feel for what people wanted, I noticed that a lot of them were... mean. Snarky humor is one thing, but some of those most popular mugs went well beyond just snarky. Or humorous, to tell the truth. That bothered me, particularly when I would create my own versions of them in an effort to capture some of those sales. It didn't seem right.
In 2016, I decided I wanted to develop my photography skills (pun? what pun? I don't see a pun... ;P ) - I'm a writer and photographer in additon to being a factory worker. But I rarely do anything the easy way. So for a project I chose to hike to the eastern overlook of Barn Bluff (a local landmark in Red Wing, Minnesota), every morning for an entire year to capture the sunrise. All 366 of them (2016 was a leap year). As my consecutive sunrise streak kept increasing, people started taking notice, and I was interviewed for a local paper. When the reporter asked me why I was doing it, what popped out of my mouth was, "To show people how pretty the world is."
And there it was. The missing piece. The reason why I was having trouble with my designs. So I decided then and there, I would only create and send into the world designs of love and joy and lighthearted humor.

    I create all the designs. Snark sells, sure, but I prefer to help people share and declare their affections instead.

    GearBubble helps bring my designs to life. I create design ideas, and they put them on mugs and ship them out.
