"Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising." - Mark Twain

I have started using my family as marketing tools.

I realize this is not a new strategy. People have been doing it since the first kid said "Daddy said I could!" to his mother's stern face, hoping she would buy it.

Except I'm not actually trying to get anyone to buy anything. All I'm advertising is this page you're sitting on. This one. Right here. (And all the other ones on my URL.)

Originally I was just going to get myself a shirt that said:

to go with my new pajama pants.

But, that was so much fun, and so easy, and the prices at Cafepress were so reasonable, I didn't stop until I had the whole family decked out. Now Jason has a shirt that says:

And Noah and Jude have matching ones like this:

Jabin's is, of course, the cutest, by right of being the smallest. (Who could resist a baby in a onesie, right?)

Creative or Crass? Wait. Don't answer that.

Happy Monday night, friends. How was your Monday?

  1. Awww, I wanted to see you in your pjs!

    I like the fact that no one I "know" reads my blog, it's my private space (in fact I now have 2 blogs, 1 is totally private!) but if I were more open then I'd think about getting a shirt for myself, as your boys look just yummy :)

    Happy New Year! x

  2. Oh, you are TOO much! This is great! How fun! Do you wear them out in public? I have adult children so IF I could get them to wear a shirt advertising my blog, it would be accompanied by much eye-rolling! heehee

  3. Clare - I kept meaning to snap a photo of me in them, but never got around to it and just decided to do the post anyway.

    I could see the advantage of private blogging. However, I started this in part to keep in contact with family and friends, so "privacy" just didn't work.

    Denise - Well, since mine is a pajama shirt, I haven't worn it out in public--yet. I might convert it to daytime use when the weather warms up a little. My boys have worn theirs out several times. And my hubby uses his as the bottom layer when he goes to the office--so far, no one else has seen it, that I know of! We'll see what happens when the weather warms up!

    How are you doing, anyway? Haven't heard from you in a while...

  4. Oh Talena! You're great! You make me smile. :D
