The ties were sold as a fundraiser for a charity ( can't remember which one), but they sold because they really looked good, even with a dark suit. I think this would look good on a shirt, but you don't have to agree with me.
Thank you! I appreciate your support of my daughter and your signature! I know Unicef and Save the Children do ties, and I think others do, too.
[user="mjc613"]Second of all, I think it is late enough in the derby that this kind of entry should be fine. I agree that having a "just for fun" or "encouragement vote" shirt get into the hotness on the first day is not a good thing. But by now, the only new entries that get all the way to the top are the really outstanding ones. In fact, it takes a lot to get into the top 100 if you enter at this point. I realize that getting into the hotness at this point takes momentum away from other designs, but in general, that only lasts for about an hour or 2, and then the novelty wears off. This is just my observation, not based on any statistics, sanctioned or otherwise.[/quote]
well said - I wanted her to work on it for a while, so it wasn't entered the first day. And, she wanted to bike ride, play, etc so this wasn't her top focus. In entering in a derby *with her age in the title* I thought it would be a fun thing for her to do. I never expected her to get in the hotness, and once she did we both knew it would wear off soon. She loves watching the votes for the derby, and is quick to point out to anyone who sees our shirt that they are from shirt.woot and the complimenter should go buy one.
[user="mjc613"]If by some fluke this won, I would buy 2. It's exponentially better than anything woot has put in the dailies for weeks, and better than many derby entries, past and present. If I am in the minority for thinking that, so be it.[/quote]
thank you thank you thank you. I'm not sure if I agree with you, but I really appreciate the thought and your support of my daughter.
