Well, we got a new-to-us van. And it’s way too tasteful. Kate even told me so “that van is too tasteful – I can’t even tell it’s yours when I see it driving around”. It’s true. So I had to tacky it up just a little.
I never thought to put my blog on my van until I saw the glue gun version a couple of years ago, and then I had to make one for my van that spanned my back window. Yep, one of those people. The old van:
Keep in mind our old van was that bad gold color. My 2nd least favorite car color. My least favorite – red. And every vehicle we owned (maybe 4-5?) before that van was red. Of course. Anyways, the sticker across the back kind of goes with an older gold van – it’s the look.
But then we got this newer dark gray van. And it’s really nice looking. We buy cars at auction (have I mentioned that Trevor has a dealer’s license and buys/sells cars on the side? true story. Anyone want to buy a yellow mini cooper?) and so color choice usually isn’t a factor. Hence all the bad colors in the past. In fact I didn’t even think we’d win the auction for this van because the color was too normal. But we did. So I wanted to mark it so people knew it was us, but I didn’t think the big sticker across the back was the answer – so I went with a more round logo in the corner. Seemed a little more tasteful:
And then Kate’s complaint was that she couldn’t recognize me from the front (we passed each other in my neighborhood and she thought I was my neighbor waving) so I added a little bee to the front, just for her:
Did you notice the flaw in the picture – because I didn’t, even after taking picture of it, until someone told me:
Are you a sticker-on-the-car type of person??
UPDATE – Trevor’s spin on the missing “w”
