Design 37? My first coffee quote


Written by:

Expresso meets Cream
It’s love at first sip

I’m not one of those people who are clever and say funny things all the time.  That’s my sister and Carol.  But I had fun with this.  Of course, I adore lattes so that’s probably why I love it (chortles).

I took the photo in a Los Gatos cafe.  So far in Tucson, only Crave Coffee has done a latte art when I ordered.  Does anyone know of other good Tucson cafes that does latte art?  I need more pics!

As you know I already made a couple of coffee notecards with this photo: one blank and one with a haiku.  Buyers can replace the haiku with their own poem if they want.  That’s one thing I like about Zazzle — you can set things up to be personalizable.

I don’t think it’s a good quote for a t-shirt but I think  coffee lover might like the card or a notebook.

What do you think?  Another Coffee Notecard?

So I have a question for you:  Should I make a card with this quote?  with the bit of black on the top and bottom? or not black on top of bottom?

A couple of t-shirts I also made with the image, sold on Amazon

From Amazon:

I’m Sweet, Hot and Addicting Latte heart T-shirt steaming latte haiku t-shirt
a cat and a book
rich steaming lattes and hugs
life is a haiku
This is Not a Poem, It’s Haiku fun poem t-shirt
This is not a poem
she complained, “there is not rhyme”
I shrugged, “it’s haiku”

    I think black top and bottom, and I actually DO like the “quote”. I wouldn’t say if I didn’t!

      Thank you, Brian! My head is getting all puffed up! (until Midnight reaches out with a claw to remind me know he’s the boss)

    Coffee mug would be good. I like the black on top and bottom. The letters won’t get lost in the swirl of coffee. 😀

      I appreciate your feedback. I’ll try it as a coffee mug too. It’s good to know the letters are better not on the pic. I’m still doing both for now (letters directly on the pic and on the seperate areas) but I think you’re right and I may start doing just the separated.
