Still Want a Little Luella Shirt?!? New Order!!

After so many people saw us all wearing our shirts around on Monday we've had lots of requests for shirts. We will be doing another order mid-July. The cost will probably not be as low as before but it'll for sure be under $20 - most likely anywhere from $13 to $18 depending on the response. I will be happy to ship shirts to people who aren't local too! We want to spread awareness far and wide!

If anyone sees you wearing your shirt and asks about one - send them my way!!

And PLEASE send me pictures of you wearing your shirts!! I would like to make a slide show to share on Luella's blog.

If you are interested in a shirt please email me (heather.m.johnson@gmail.com) and let me know! Sizes available are -
Youth: YXS, YS, YM, YL, YXL
Adult: S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL (XXL and XXXL will be $2 extra).

A sizing chart can be viewed here: http://www.customink.com/items/sizing/04600_lineup/standard.htm

The shirts will be ordered locally again at Print Express!! They did a tremendous job!

Here's the finished shirt design (as printed at Print Express)...
The butterfly is made from Luella's hand prints.

Hi everyone!! I was so excited to draw a winner for my fundraiser today! I had an initial goal to raise $500 for the Dravet Syndrome Foundation... That goal was reached quickly so I increased my goal to $1000 and our very generous friends and family helped us surpass that goal as well!!
We ended up raising $1,340!!! 
That is so exciting!! I can not wait to send that money to the Dravet Syndrome Foundation!! Thank you so much to everyone that contributed!! You are amazing!!

I took a video of me doing the drawing so you'd know it was done far and square!! :-) So many friends and family are included in the drawing and I didn't want anyone to think I was playing favorites!!

The winner is.... Lucas and Wendy Peters!!! 
YAY!! I'm SO incredibly excited to get to make a cake for you sometime!!

$10 Little Luella Shirts - Last Call

I've gotten such a tremendous response for the Little Luella t-shirts so our cost has gone way down!! The shirts are $10 (a couple extra dollars for sizes larger than XL). I decided to work with our local printing company and they have been so great to work with!! I'm happy to keep the business local! I will put the order in Thursday morning. If you live far away I will ship your shirt to you when it's done.

The price goes way up if we place smaller orders later - so if you want one please let me know.

We had to slightly modify the design to accommodate the printing processes available locally but they still look great!!

Order a Little Luella Shirt!

If anyone wants to order a purple Luella shirt, please let me know SOON!! Order going in tomorrow!!
I quickly made up a t-shirt design using a butterfly made with Luella's hand prints.

I made them to bring awareness to Dravet Syndrome and to wear on the first Dravet Syndrome Awareness day on June 23 (and every purple day here after!). I need to order SOON. Like probably tomorrow - Tuesday. Please don't feel obligated, but if you do want one, I can get a better price the more we order. For those far away I can't guarantee you'd have them by June 23rd but I'd get it to you as quickly as possible. The price would be $20 or less (depending on how many I order). Here's a link to the sizing - http://www.customink.com/items/sizing/04600_lineup/standard.htm. This would be printed on a Gildan Ultra Cotton T-shirt (purple).

Please let me know SOON. I'll let you know the price once I order and you can get me the money then.
