AoME Swag

Busy Weekend. My second web site up in as many months, I finally put up the site for Arms of Middle Earth, the Lord of the Rings fan site that Melissa co-runs. Nothing earth-shattering, but it took a while to get details nailed down and integrate a blog directly into the front page instead of having it in a sub-frame. (I learned my lesson with that on THIS page.)

Another aspect was to get a line of AoME merchandise up on CafePress. The group needs money to support group activities, and people are more likely to pay for swag than to donate outright.
So Justin and I had a brainstorm a few months back about some humorous, Lord of the Rings-themed bumper sticker/T-Shirt designs, and this was the best of the bunch. Well, at least the best of the bunch that wouldn't get us sued by New Line Cinema or the Tolkien Holding Company. My prediction for best selling item: This handy canvas tote bag. Perfect for teachers!
