Surf T Shirt Mens by Seventy1Percent on Upcycle FeverWhen did you know you wanted to create and sell handmade items? I lost my job. Rebecca told me to "Seas the Day" and go for it. I had always had a dream to create my own tees. She told me to use this negative and turn it into a positive.

Where does your inspiration come from? The initial inspiration was a love for the ocean and its beauty. We are also inspired by other water related activities, sea life, and our customers. 

What’s the most memorable custom item you’ve created? A super cool tee customized for a rock band.

What is the most important advice anyone has given you? My mom said not to be scared. She said it was F.E.A.R. "False Evidence Appearing Real."
