I made this card for my brother-in-law’s birthday. We’re getting him a bunch of craft-brewed beer, so I thought this might be an appropriate card for him. He’s also a sucker for that “crass co-opting of a cultural icon” type humor. For example, one of the t-shirts we got him in the past had an […]Read more "Drunken Yogi"

Last year I started the precedent of letting the kids decide on the name, and then design the logo and banner. We had an even split between The Red Ladybugs and the Golden Sunsets.
