For #๐Ÿ˜‡MerchMonday, Iโ€™m highlighting 2 awesome insta-pals who have most recently purchased items from my Zazzle shop and shared their goodies on the Gram. ๐Ÿฅฐ

1st up is @CouplesThatGameTogether. My 1st interaction with them was when they commented on my P for Pandemic post, saying theyโ€™re huge Pandemic fans and that it would be cool to have the design on a shirt or tote. I said I could make that happen, and the next thing I knew, I had sold my 1st custom order! ๐Ÿคฉ If you havenโ€™t checked them out yet, they clearly have a lot of fun playing games. They even started their own board game community challenge featuring mythical creatures, which Iโ€™ve added to my long challenge to-do list. If you love mythical creatures, you should consider joining their challenge. ๐Ÿงœโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ„
โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
Next up is @Merry.Meeple.Peeple. This is the perfect name for them because they are definitely one of the merriest and most supportive accounts in the board game community! If you follow them and/or their stories, youโ€™ll see them doing giveaways and promoting game developers, small businesses (like mine), and anyone who crosses their path with a smile. ๐Ÿ˜ In fact, they reached out to me early last week to say they wanted to purchase something from my shop to include in their mystery box giveaway (that they awarded on Friday). ๐ŸŽ We had a nice chat about what product would be best, and they settled on one of my alphabet posters that spells out โ€œBoard Games.โ€ If youโ€™re looking for more joy (&/or dachshunds) in your feed, definitely check them out. ๐Ÿ˜Š
๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ›
The โ€œBoard Gamesโ€ design and other words are also available on faux canvas and mugs. And if youโ€™d like one of my individual letters (or any of my designs) on any product, send me a DM, and Iโ€™ll see what I can do. Link to my #Zazzle shop in my bio. If you do make a purchase, please share with the tag #BoardGameAngel. ๐Ÿ˜‡

For #๐Ÿ˜‡MerchMonday, Iโ€™m using words to make art with the help of my official Board Game Alphabet. ๐Ÿ–ผ Looking for a fun way to decorate your game space? How about โ€œBoard Gamesโ€ or โ€œGame Nightโ€ or โ€œLetโ€™s Playโ€? Is there another phrase youโ€™d like to see? If itโ€™s something others would enjoy, I can add it to my Zazzle shop. Want something personalized? I can put your name on a print, like โ€œJonesโ€™ Gamesโ€ or โ€œJordanโ€™s Game Room.โ€ Just DM me for a price. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ’Œ Want to send a special greeting to your board-game-loving friends? Wish them a Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, or Congrats with my alphabet greeting cards. Personalize your card right on Zazzle with the personโ€™s name and the message of your choice on the inside. You can also change the fonts (& their colors). Or you can remove the personalization, center the art and stock up on cards to use for multiple friends through the year.

Zazzle (where I have my online shop) is all about making things your own! ๐Ÿ˜„ For the prints & faux canvases, you can choose a larger or smaller size to fit your needs. If the image gets cut off for the size you want, simply select โ€œcustomizeโ€ to resize the art to fit. You can also upgrade the paper to fit your tastes.

Board Game Alphabet Mug | Zazzle.com

I'm so excited to present my official Board Game Alphabet, available on ready-to-frame prints, wrapped faux canvases, & mugs.

I started creating this alphabet almost a year ago while I was still trying to figure out what kind of content I wanted to share on Instagram, and my 1st rendition featured my personal favorite games (or ones I had played or heard of). It took me a few months to realize I had something that could be worth selling. So then, with help from my Instagram followers, I curated the alphabet to feature some of the most popular games for each letter.

One of the great things about Zazzle (where I have my online shop) is that customers have the opportunity to customize their orders. For the prints & faux canvases, Iโ€™ve set the default sizes to best complement the shapes of the alphabet, but you can choose a larger or smaller size to fit your needs. If the image gets cut off for the size you want, simply select โ€œcustomizeโ€ to resize the art to fit. Iโ€™ve also selected an economy paper as the default for prints, but you can upgrade the paper to fit your tastes. And the mugs... there are several styles and sizes you can choose.

So this alphabet is just the start! Next, I want to put together some standard word combos, such as โ€œBoard Gamesโ€ and โ€œGame Night.โ€ What other words would you like to see readily available? I am also open to custom orders, so please PM me to get a quote.

The following link will take you directly to the mug, and you can browse around my shop by clicking on "Italics by Halo Designs." I'll post a couple more photos in the comments

If you're a board game enthusiast, this mug is for you! Each letter is designed for a board game that starts with that letter. How many have you played?

Now kids can match their shirt color ๐ŸŸฃ to their favorite meeple color. ๐ŸŸฃ I love hearing about Instagram parents who are playing games with their kids. My passion for gaming started when I was a kid, so why not encourage them to express their love of gaming with their own shirt? ๐Ÿ˜€

Coming soon, by request, will one for the family. Should it be โ€œBoard Game Famโ€ to keep it short & snappy, or would it be better to fully spell out โ€œFamily?โ€ For those of you with kids, how many do you have? Iโ€™ll do one standard design with 2 parents and 1 or 2 kids, but Iโ€™ll be more than happy to do custom requests to match your familyโ€™s needs. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

In another life, I wanted to be a writer, โœ’๏ธ specifically a poet, so when I found Telesilla in the 7 Wonders Leaders Anniversary pack and discovered she was a poet and a fierce woman who may have been instrumental in protecting the city of Argos around 500 BC, I knew I had found the card for me. ๐Ÿฅฐ When played in the game, she lets you discard all of your battle loss tokens and costs each of your opponents one victory token. This also works for me because I rarely play strong on military. ๐Ÿ•Š Finally, sheโ€™s a brunette (my natural hair color) and is wearing red ๐Ÿ”ด (my favorite color to wear and play as). โ˜บ๏ธ

I may not write poetry anymore, but I still use my language arts to help clients enhance the writing in their promotional materials, and Iโ€™ve been enjoying writing here on IG (for those of you who read my posts ๐Ÿ˜‰). If youโ€™re a game developer, Iโ€™d love to talk to you about how I can help elevate the look and writing in your game. ๐Ÿ˜‡

There are so many cool board game theme shirts out there, but I had never seen one specifically for woman (that I would want to wear myself). So I created my own merch for all of us Board Game Gals. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Iโ€™ve played with the idea of making a similar design for guys - and maybe even kids - but Iโ€™m torn. Is Board Game Gal more special because itโ€™s just for women? Is there even any interest in Board Game Guy merch? What about Board Game Kid? What do you think? ๐Ÿ™ƒ

For #๐Ÿ˜‡MerchMonday, Iโ€˜m highlighting my fabulous insta-friend @SmallFriesGames who recently purchased two - yes, 2๏ธโƒฃโ—๏ธ- shirts from my Zazzle shop. ๐Ÿค— I was so thrilled when I saw her promoting my Live, Love, Play shirt yesterday! She makes it look so good! ๐Ÿคฉ And she was spot on with what she wrote too:
โœ’๏ธ โ€œI love that you can customise the colour and style to make it your own. I went for Navy and long sleeved tee but there are tons of options in her #Zazzle shop.โ€ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

@SmallFriesGames caught my attention last summer with her colorful and creative posts. She has a great eye for product photography, showing off games, toys, and even food (usually fries/chips ๐ŸŸ) in a way that makes you want to know more about whatever it is sheโ€™s featuring. She quickly became one of my most enthusiastic cheerleaders, encouraging me in my design, photography, and insta-game endeavors. IRL, sheโ€™s currently working on launching a game for babies ๐Ÿ‘ถ called Knock Knock! First Words. If youโ€™re not already following her, you have to check her out! ๐Ÿฅ” ๐ŸŸ

For #TypographyTuesday this week, I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ Thank you to everyone who has voted to make this board game alphabet truly representative of the games so many people love. Next week, Iโ€™ll be back to refining the letters. ๐Ÿ”

Fun fact: ๐Ÿค” โ€œXโ€ has been used as shorthand for โ€œChristโ€ for hundreds of years. Growing up as a Christian, I always felt a little guilty shortening โ€œChristmasโ€ to โ€œXmas.โ€ But that all changed when I learned that โ€œXโ€ looks like the symbol for โ€œchiโ€ (pronounced โ€œkieโ€) in the Greek alphabet, and chi is the first letter in the Greek word for โ€œChrist.โ€ So, not only does โ€œXmasโ€ here allow the letters to be larger (and thus more legible), but itโ€™s also a perfectly respectful way to celebrate the birth of Christ. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ˜‡

For #๐Ÿ˜‡MerchMonday, I want to highlight two fabulous insta-friends who have most recently purchased items from my Zazzle shop. As a solopreneur, it means the world to me when people not only like my designs enough to purchase something for themselves but to also promote my business by sharing their purchases on Instagram. ๐Ÿค—

1st up is @CuriouslyBooksAndGames. I think I discovered her through a โ€œfeatured meeplesโ€ by @SmallFriesGames back in June. We started chatting in August, and I feel Iโ€™ve found a true friend. ๐Ÿฅฐ Not only is she super sweet to *everyone*, but sheโ€™s also a very creative content creator whose photos are visually stunning and text is informative and inspirational. She also helps build our gaming community by featuring other Instagrammers and magnificent minis in her stories and creating fun events like #ggss4good. I was not at all surprised when she told me she ordered my โ€œLive, Love, Playโ€ mug because thatโ€™s the kind of friend she is. Make sure to check her out! ๐Ÿคฉ

Next up is @ZeeBeeVee. @SmallFriesGames is responsible for this introduction as well. ๐ŸŸ After just a brief DM conversation on the 1st day she followed me, she went straight to my Zazzle shop and bought my โ€œLive, Love, Playโ€ magnet! Since then, weโ€™ve become Insta-pals, and I appreciate how loyal and supportive she is of all her friends. She doesnโ€™t post a lot, but when she does, you can count on finding fun, quirky, colorful content. Make sure to say โ€œhiโ€ and prepare to smile. ๐Ÿ˜Š

How do you decorate your Christmas tree? ๐ŸŽ„ Do you like a formal tree with everything carefully coordinated or a personalized tree with a mish-mash of ornaments? When hubby & I got married, I already had a tree full of ornaments I had collected throughout my life, none of which had any connection to him, so together we purchased some simple globe ornaments to decorate a tree together, and then I put up a 2nd tree just for my ornaments. Over the years, both trees have evolved somewhat. When we moved into our current home, hubby bought a glass ornament to start a new tradition of adding a glass globe every year to โ€œourโ€ tree. โ€œMyโ€ tree now also has all of the non-globe ornaments we have to collected together. I cherish both. ๐Ÿ’
โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
For #๐Ÿ˜‡MerchMonday, Iโ€™m highlighting 2 ornaments I designed for my Zazzle shop and purchased for myself - a meeple Christmas tree, and my Live, Love, Play design. Iโ€™ve also included a photo from our formal tree that has one of our original red globes and the glass globe we chose last year. Finally, Iโ€™m also featuring a photo of the wooden meeple ornament I purchased from @SkeletonKeyGDS. As a small shop owner, I like to support other small business owners and artisans when I admire their creations. (Etsy is one of my favorites sites!) Check them out for other wood meeple fun!

My Story

Most of us donโ€™t get to choose our first name, and Iโ€™m no different. Growing up with a name like โ€œAngelโ€ had its challenges, and there were times I wished my name was something more common.

However, when you start a business, you finally have the opportunity to choose your identity, and in this case, the last thing you want to be is common or like anyone else. You want a name that gives people a good first impression and sets the tone for what people can expect from your business.

While I was considering what to call my business, I remembered a college classmate had sometimes called me โ€œHalo,โ€ so I saw an opportunity to finally capitalize on the uniqueness of my name and chose โ€œHalo Designsโ€ for my business.

At Halo Designs, I want to elevate the branding of my clients and leave them feeling like they are on โ€œcloud nine.โ€
