Guarantee yourself some holiday cheer

for now and all year long.


the GROOVY tee

is on sale now in the student SMASH UP store.

This time of year can really stress people out, so this SMASH UP tee is perfectly timed! Check it out, you don't have to be a grumpy elf, get your groove on with this Groovy tee by Maine College of Art student, George McGinty. George is stressed too, he spends his days working hard to get his Art Ed certificate from MECA which involves not only classes but student teaching as well. Humor has an important role in his work, and he often focuses on the human face or form. I love the detail of the dancing gal, think I may have that be my holiday outfit....(reminds me of these whosiepie leggings!)

Placed upon the sparkling snow, this tee is the basic ringer from Alternative Apparel, a top seller I believe, super comfy, and 100% cotton. Many thanks to George for helping us all to find our inner, dancing JOY. By the way, he claims this GROOVY tee project was a welcome distraction from the daily school grind. Which is exactly what we want for our SMASH UP project, keep it fresh, try something new, COLLABORATE! The student SMASH UP is an ongoing collaborative project between Smashing Darling and printmaking students from all over, you can find this limited edition SMASH UP and the past six for sale in the student SMASH UP store.

Yet another great gift, right here at Smashing Darling, for your sis, daughter, friend, or whoever it is in your life that really knows how to get their groove on, or maybe, needs a little help in that department!

~ Happy Holidays from the Darlings, and as far as SMASH UP goes....we'll see ya in 2008!
