Trying to Make Money Selling Designs

Today I started an account with zazzle.com It is the same thing as CafePress.com where they will make T-shirts and coffee mugs with your design on it and then you earn a commission on the sale.

Here are the designs I've put up so far. I've started with t-shirts of emoticons. Seems to me like there might me some small niche interest in such designs, despite their simplicity.

Speaking of Gay Marriage

I attended my first same sex marriage recently. My friends Abigail and Kat got married on June 13. I really enjoyed their wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and a great party with excellent vegetarian food from Ipanema.

I offered to film the ceremony since I have the camcorder and tripod I've been using to film Council meetings from my City Council blog . My first wedding video.

I fully support the rights of adults to marry whomever they choose. This is guaranteed by the "Equal Protection" established by the 14th Amendment. I also believe gay marriage is protected by the First Amendment's protection of religion. If any church recognizes and performs a same-sex marriage that should be afforded the same benefits and legal rights as a marriage between a man and a woman.

I believe in Equality among citizens.
