RedBubble 2008: What a year it was ...

Bloody Nora – It’s 9 days til Christmas! I thought it was still November.

So Christmas is dangerously close and before we know it, 2009 will be knocking at the door. Before you get distracted by devouring your own weight in pudding or burying yourself under wrapping paper, we want to hear how 2008 has been for you. The following questions have been collated by a team of expert panelists.

If you would like to post your own ‘year in review’, please copy the questions below into a journal and start crafting your responses. My answers are below.


State your name and your business
Nat. Giver of T-shirt Love

Tell us what you consider to be your RedBubble highlight for the year
Watching the T-Shirt Revolution Group grow, finding out the Sydney Morning Herald had been contacting group members about their ‘World Youth Day’ protest tees and watching David Reyne talk RedBubble on Aussie breakfast television.

Christmas tune that you would ban for life and why
Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade and I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard. Someone needs to let the good people of the United Kingdom know that it’s no longer 1973.

Funniest comment you’ve seen on a work/journal/forum thread
Xavier: “Guess what I’m working on.”
Damien Mason: “Your white man fro?”

Which RedBubble work are you secretly hoping to find under your tree
N by Steve Leadbeater (I’m pretty sure it is!)

Most inspiring thing/person you’ve spotted on the bubble this year
A bunch of people who provide feedback, support, friendship and most importantly, entertainment to their fellow bubblers. Oh and Najeroux dancing in her pants on youtube. Her incredible bravery is to be commended.

Imagine you are the Queen of England.
What’s your Christmas message to the RedBubble masses?

Thanks for pumping out the amazing work and providing such a visual smorgasboard for my little peepers. In the words of Jack Nicholson, “You make me want to be a better person”. Have a safe and happy festive season x

    Imagine you are the Queen of England.
    What’s your Christmas message to the RedBubble masses?

    My dear RedBubble objects. I beg of you to be kind to young Charlie when I finally remove myself from the throne. I realise I’ve been keeping my posterior on the seat longer than Charlie anticipated, so please bear with him as he and Camilla do their best to provide sound marriage advice to those in need.

    Yours sincerely,


  • Haha. The poor man just turned 60.
    I wonder how long he’ll have to wait.

    Thanks for sharing your RB year – although as a Brit-turned-Aussie I have to admit I still hang on to Slade (purely for nostalgia reasons of course). Morecambe and Wise anyone?
