Wife collaboration - Thanks!

Abs and I bashed our heads together and came up with this design. It involved beer and laughing!

Help to save our marriage by voting it a good score!

It's early days, but am I a bit bummed that my highest scoring design so far is an idea that my wife had?

Yes. Yes, I am. But I am also very proud.

UPDATE: I flippantly suggested that it might be able to achieve an all-time high score and it went up by 0.05 again last night so now I'm starting to believe. Just 0.11 needed to beat Alice and Alex's legendary Harry Potter design! :D

you should ask your wife for more ideas because this one is printing :)

it seemed to work out for Don and Megan Draper


Hey everyone! I'm not supposed to be on here at work, so ssssshhhh! I just wanted to say hi & thanks for voting :)

It took six years of Aled designing here for me to come up with one idea even worthy of making it to doodle stage, so I don't expect this to be a regular occurance, but it's fun!

FINALLY Aled admits your better half has been the conceptual brains of your operation the entire time!!!! :p

Nice work team MullTheed.


It's adorable! Must be the hand of Abi at work there....


I'm convinced that you aren't actually married and your wife comes up with all the ideas also you don't exist.

Thanks, guys! Jeremy - I put it on my Facebook page and Tumblr and it went a bit viral. I haven't done anything since, other than tweet that it's up for voting at Threadless - then a few blog posts appeared encouraging people who like it to vote on it. The internet has her now.

Thought this was about babies


Tontttttttttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Esther!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If our marriage is going to fail over this before we even reach our first anniversary, it would be nice if it got the all time top score as a consolation.

ps. I miss you all! Stupid work ruining my hang out times :(

I thought this would be about offering sage advice about married life

"You don't have to listen to her, just smile and nod!"


Ste7en on Jun 14 '12 at 8:41am I thought you made a kid or something, but this is good too



But the design is so fugging cute, I'll get over it.


Mullheed! Yesssss


So, threadless has printed this already, right? And now they're just hoarding all the shirts because they're too attached to let them go just yet.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the kind words and support and good votes and comments and thanks to Threadless for being the best.

It's kinda cool having mine and Abi's names in the collar of the tee. Didn't think this is something I'd ever do, but it's a nice thing.

congratulations! does that mean you have to clean all your filth from the alumni section before Abs sees it?


Thanks, you guys!

Don't be silly, James. I'm not an alumni, just a helper. I didn't even do that much helping, to be honest.

Also, hi!

The illusive alumni section... Abi, spill the beans when you get in!

Also, hi!

It's okay, Aled. I'll drink your tea.


So excited for you Abi (and Aled)! Congrats on the print. Saw this on a few friends fb over here - they didn't know threadless until this design went up :)
