New designs coming to Downtime!

Downtime is working on adding some new hobbies to our lineup! We're always willing to add new crafts and arts on request, but we're excited to announce that we will also be including some other "downtime activities". Those of us that are dedicated to our crafts readily acknowledge that such dedication can take away from personal time every so often. In honor of those dedicated significant others that put up with our enthusiasm for our art, we are adding some shirts for THEIR interests. From hunting and fishing to football and hockey, we'll be looking to cover the obsessions of those special people that put up with OUR obsessions! If you see a saying you'd like in a different hobby or craft, please feel free to contact us as always and we'll add it asap. We rarely do reserved listings, so there's no pressure to buy-but don't worry, if someone beats you to the buy button, we can always relist!

Welcome to the new blog for Downtime. We will be using this blog to stay in touch, showcase new items and hopefully some wonderful customers that are showing off their shirts! A lot of our customers are fellow crafters and artisans so we will be including links to their shops or websites as well as a little bit about them as a thank you for sending us their great photos of themselves enjoying their Downtime shirts! We started Downtime after realizing that when we wear our shirts, many people ask us about them. We thought they would make a wonderful way for dedicated crafters to strike up a conversation about their craft and shop, with someone else initiating the discussion! It's so easy, no pressure-after all, THEY asked you about it!

Lets start off by showing some of the great shirts we've already sold!

Who doesn't love yarn? Are you a "Yarnoholic"?

Beads, beads, nothing but beads!

Do you love glass?

Since we just started our special promo, we don't have anyone to showcase yet. Are you interested in a feature, a coupon and a great shirt? Visit our shop on Etsy ( ) to shop for shirts for the dedicated artisan and buy one! We'll send you the details on this unique promotion! Don't see your favorite art represented yet? Contact us on Etsy and let us know which saying you'd like to see for what craft and we'll get it added. We don't create reserved listings for suggestions so there's no pressure to buy if you decide you're not ready yet.
