It's a cute ornament. I do wonder if Susannah has someone around her who can proofread her website for spelling, grammar, punctuation and things like extra spaces in the print.
Maybe I'm a bit like Prince where I want to "straighten a painting that's crooked", but I see the print on her items as looking better with no punctuation. Taking out the comma after "coffee", and the period after "jam".
And MAYBE centering the words instead of hVing them be left-justified, just to see how it looks. She may have this part good though.

There's a lot she could do with this song's products if done right. Oh, and pleeeez take sentences like this out of the site: "Thank you for supporting the person who co-wrote this song with Prince!"

Cute addition to a Christmas tree and certainly a good color!

I don't know about the comma and period, but the left justification is that whole weird theme of list shirts.

Thanks, COP. I looked up "list shirts" and see why she did it that way now.

I like her art enough to want to see a bit more of it. I don't think much of the bauble though.

It is kind of sad, especially considering that particular t-shirt design has been played out since about the same time she started using it.

And although that's her 'Dream Factory' art, I doubt it would have been used on an actual release. It looks like something you'd find in an 8th grader's trapper keeper back in the day.

Well, she didn't actually design the shirt. Or really choose it. Someone else was using her intellectual property to make money off of shirts with that design, and she started making an official product for which there was already demand. I think anyone would have done the same.

I'm betting her dream factory artwork was more of an art design, with a final version to he done later.

Maybe, but custom merch isn't cheap and she probably had a minimum order.

I wouldn't pay for any of it, but I've seen these kinds of "special collector" ornaments in that ballpark.
