"Working a 8-5 desk job can be boring, very boring. Especially when the job involves no creative whatsoever. On one of these 8-5 days (probably a Monday...) I got so bored at work that I decided to start sketching an elephant. It turned into a very intricate elephant with a Tribal design. After showing it to my mom she insisted that we must put it on a t-shirt. I brushed her off and thought that it wouldn't be possible, and even if it would, there was no chance it would come out looking any good. She was not convinced though, and after doing some research, she found customink.com. She sent the site to me and I immediately started playing around with the design and placed an order shortly after.
My family is extremely important to me and I was born, raised, and still live in Chicago. My oldest brother married an awesome young lady and much to mine and my parents chagrin, moved off to California, which is, for the most part, the farthest location you can get from Chicago and still be in the United States. Shortly after their move, they had the two cutest, blondest, blue eyed children you will ever meet. Since they are SO far away, I always try to do little special things for them, especially so my nephews can remember who their favorite "Auntie" is. Once I saw how great the design looked on my shirt, I knew I had to order shirts for their whole family. After shipping them out to California, I received the Selfie you see with this entry from the whole family, brother, sister-in-law and 2 adorable nephews all wearing the elephant t-shirts. I also received a video with the oldest nephew running around with his elephant shirt on screaming "ELEPHANT SHIRT AUNTIE! ELEPHANT SHIRT AUNTIE! THANKS!" I may be biased, but I think this elephant shirt family selfie is one of the cutest things there is and it couldn't have happened without Customink.com"
