Hey it's just me and it's been an urge by Paul Wheaton, to get some new bumper stickers. Those are those wee blue things displayed under 'I like...' under someone's name, you see that when they post to something. (below 'pie' and below where their number of apples are shown.)

So I'm asking, what should I make or what do you want?  Paul gets to review them, but he asked that I ask everyone for what they want made.

I'm going to suggest a small spinning wheel for those that love fiber arts...  In "My Profile" you have a full width tab that says 'Bumper Stickers'. You can click to have the ones you want displayed (maximum, 9)

Also should we increase the number shown, decrease the number shown, or stay the same? Right now it will display up to 9. I can say I vote for 12...

Please reply on this thread. I'll be checking it and we'll run it for a few weeks maybe then sort out what gets made.

Thanks.

I'm a bit surprised pigs don't seem to have one already. The other animals that come to mind are cows and horses (I'm aware Paul considers horses hay burners ). Possibly rocket heaters or more generically appropriate technology? Swales or other water capture/diversion or more generically earthworks?

Yes, pigs indeed. And a farm tractor. Maybe a cow too.

Something with repurposing / waste reduction theme (maybe instead of the overused recycling logo, maybe a crossed out 'skip' aka 'dumpster')  and a water droplet.

Okay, so far we have:

Pig, horse, cow, tractor, star(s), musical notes, paintbrush and palette, spinning wheel, computer, skip dumpster (hashed out), rocket heater, pumpkin, water drop.

Nice variety. Going to ask, any more?

A worm for vermiculture. And maybe a spade or hoe to stand for gardening in general.

I don't know if you already knew about this thread. The thread was last updated a year and a half ago, so it's pretty well hidden. But there were some suggestions there, too, and a few mockups by some of us.

People were interested then in homeschooling/kids




And pigs!


And sheep:


And a homestead icon:



And, of course, fiber arts! (I like the idea of a spinning wheel! These were some other ideas):





And, someone suggested Cthulu for meaningless drivel!, which I think it fantastically funny.

I don't know if any of those help you, but maybe they'll give you something to work off of to save you time? I know mine were rather rough, and I'm not a graphic artist by any means!

Okay, came up for air and cleaning stuff up and doing some GitRdun.

A bunch of these images are great. I will sort out and see what else we need or want, present a final to Paul, and we can grovel to Devaka then. I haven't forgotten this, by any means.
 
Look ma! I'm selling my stuff!
