I just can't get over this shirt design. I worked for hours on a slick version, but this sketch version gives me so much joy and reminds me of my favorite biscuit chef Rocky (rip sweet friend). cat2feetheart


Hobby designer snacks her way around the world.

In 2004, I was peddling puzzles and pogo sticks in an independent toy store in Austin. I saved up to buy a button machine so I could make pins for friends' bands, and my hobby slowly grew into a proper business. At first I wasn't sure anyone would want my designs, but it turns out a lot of people share my love for pizza parties and smiling vegetables.

Then I married a traveler. The button biz followed us from Texas to Seattle and New Orleans, keeping me busy with new nerdy, wordy, and cutie patootie designs and occasionally helping pay for vacations to places like Asia and Australia. In 2016, my husband got a dream job offer, and I decided to leave the buttons behind as we traveled to live in Tokyo and eat katsu curry on Friday nights.

I kept the shirts though! I'm so happy to keep designing because the clothes in my shop are printed by a cool guy who runs his own t-shirt shop in Los Angeles, California. For design inspiration, I foster dogs from a local rescue, take daily walks by a river, learn to cook like a local, and sample every new flavor of Japanese chips that I can find.

See new designs on instagram @nicebutton, and read about strange snacks and dogs who only understand Japanese on my personal instagram @samjhorne

For Shirts:
Production time is always 3-7 business days.
Standard US shipping is 2-8 business days.
Expedited US shipping is 1-3 business days.
Please note that shipping can be expedited, but production time cannot. If you pay for 1-3 day shipping, the shirt will still be ready to ship in 3-7 business days.

International standard shipping often takes 2-3 weeks, but can occasionally take anywhere from 5 to 45 days. The United States Postal Service does not guarantee US ship times/dates, nor do they give estimates of international ship times. However, they do guarantee money back on Priority and Express packages if an item is lost or damaged by the postal service. Note that this does not include items "lost" because of an incorrect address you confirmed at checkout.

If a package is returned to me due to an incorrect shipping address that you confirmed, you may be responsible for cost of the return shipping and/or re-shipping, or you may choose to receive a refund for the cost of the items. Whether you use Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, they do require you to confirm your current shipping address before payment is complete. I cannot be responsible for items sent to a confirmed but incorrect address if they are not returned to me.

I do not estimate, anticipate, or pay for customs or VAT fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you believe that your order has been fulfilled incorrectly, contact me with details about the error, as well as a photo to help describe the issue. If there is an error, I will provide replacements or refunds and pay shipping costs.

Shirts are made to order, so I reluctantly provide refunds and exchanges (buyer is responsible for shipping costs). Please read the sizing information carefully. I am happy to answer sizing and color questions.

Returns and exchanges must be made within 30 days of item delivery. Items must be in original, re-sellable condition, unwashed, with no obvious signs of wear or use. Items must be free of odors such as perfume and cigarette smoke, and free of pet hair, dirt, et cetera. I reserve the right to deny a return or exchange if an item is not re-sellable at my discretion.

Bulk orders may not be returned or exchanged. Custom made items cannot be returned or exchanged.

Returns/exchanges may be shipped to me in Tokyo or to my family in Texas.
