Granted, it was by request, and there's a deadline involved.
Of course, after spending about 5 hours designing the thing, I finally posted it and E-mailed him the link, only to receive an E-mail saying that he thinks you can get something like this done at Wal-Mart.
(Now, he hadn't yet seen my design when he said that, but I'm sure the WM version is a whole lot cheaper so we'll see what he goes with in the end...)
ETA: Weehee! This one made "Today's Best" too, and was one of the Top 10 Mug Views (viewed most times) the same day. I think I'll do something similar with photos that have more general appeal - maybe people will actually buy some. Mom, can I use the flower pictures you took when you were here?
So I guess the design served its purpose even if we don't end up buying one...
