Creative Christmas

Well, I’m inspired to do what I’ve wanted to do forever - design a sweatshirt specifically for the showcase spectacular that is the REHFELDT CHRISTMAS!

My motivation came from a recent viewing of Steve Martin’s Cheaper by the Dozen. So, here’s what I’m thinking:

Christmas isn’t Christmas
unless it’s a
Rehfeldt Christmas

(I’m seeing this centered on the sweatshirt with “Rehfeldt Christmas” in funky letters. As for colors, I’m thinking red sweatshirt, white lettering.)

Life Is Better By The Dozen!
A listing of the twelve names

What do you think?

There is a great company in Rockford that does custom clothing work – Creative Pig Minds – so I’m thinking of going to them to see what they offer. I’ve also done stuff on, but I think I would need a little more design help on this one.

My cousin Candice also has a great idea for a Rehfeldt shirt. It would say 1+1= 12 on the front and list the twelve names on the back. I think it’s a great idea, and I’d like to see us do it for a reunion gathering one year.

Over the years, I’ve had many ideas for customized Rehfeldt clothing. One of my favorites is a dark green shirt with black lettering that says The Sherman Avenue Rehfeldts. I’ve always thought that would be cool.

Here’s another Christmas one: Santa’s My Uncle! Ha! Ha!

So, anyway, all ye of Rehfeldt blood please send me any of your Christmas sweatshirt suggestions.

I’ll get to work on it!

Hey ann-marie,
If you get shirts made with "Santa's my Uncle" on them count me in!
