Love U, Need Space Limited Edition Sweatshirt

This is the story behind Love U, Need Space. I was making a custom sweatshirt for myself last year and was trying to come up with something fun and to the point, that captured how I was feeling at the time (and often since!). As an introvert, mom to a teenager and a 1-year old daughter, wife to a sweet man (who's an extrovert), and in a new marriage, I needed space, quiet time, and their understanding. And that's how the sweatshirt was born.

Getting emotional as I'm typing this because for the longest time I didn't say out loud what my needs were. It wasn't in me -- I didn't develop that muscle. I was so used to making sure others were happy and comfortable. I struggled not to get mad at myself that I had my own desires, wants and needs. I kept all of that to myself. "Self-care"  was new to me (and still is!).

This sweatshirt is a reminder to introverts of all shapes and sizes... to love ourselves as much as we love others ... because we deserve it.

The Process

I believe comfort does not need to be compromised for style. After much research, I found a sweatshirt that not only fits well on the body but feels soft and light. Perfect for binge-watching Netflix, having a 2-year-old cuddle next to you, going to bed with it and possibly never take it off.

With the help of my artist friend, Sunny Lee (she tested and hand-printed the sweatshirts for me, and designed the custom brass detail for the logo) we've created something we're really proud of.
