About Gladditudes

Gladditudes is about expressing the happy connections in your life and with those you love. Happy and funny t-shirts for Maternity, dad-to-be, children and adults.

In 2008 I created my Skelly Baby® character, a funny pregnancy skeleton t-shirt showing a rib cage and heart for Mama, and Skelly Baby on the belly. This idea was well received, to say the least, and has become a not-just-for-Halloween shirt, having many different versions such as baby girl, baby boy, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentines, Santa hat, Pilgrim boy and girl, Mardi Gras, etc. Skelly Baby t-shirts are often used as gender reveal shirts as well as for celebrating specific holidays or seasons. My designs are made to order by my fulfillment company and can be printed on any type of t-shirt.

In 2015 I opened my Etsy shop. In this shop I sell my two best selling Skelly Baby t-shirts (already made and shipped within 1 or 2 days), the original Skelly Baby and the Sugar Skull Skelly Baby, and also sell iron-on transfers of these designs for the DYI customers who prefer to choose their own t-shirt. In 2016 I am expanding my Etsy products to include other iron-on transfer designs, downloadable invitations, svg files and customized gifs and movie files for use in social media. If you see a design on Gladditudes.com that you would prefer as an iron-on transfer, please contact me.

I am a graphic designer “work at home” mom with a husband, son and daughter. In my spare time I like to hike and practice yoga. I love handmade jewelry, reading and nature, and I am learning to play the mandolin. My future goals are to design jewelry, do a handstand in yoga and get a kayak (and a car with a rack).

I hope you enjoy my designs and t-shirts. Let me know if there is a design you need customized or would like to see on a different style or product.

Have a Happy day!
