How Dutch Boyd started their other graphic design journey

Summary

Last Christmas, I bought my mom a domain name : Lots2Sell2U.com. She had taken an interest in selling things on eBay and craigslist, and had chosen "lots2sell2u" as her username.

For mother's day, I'd like to go the next step and have a background done for her to use when she sells things on eBay / craigslist.

Company name

Lots2Sell2U.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

My mother really deserves a medal or some sort of trophy.  At 20, she seemed to have settled into the life she had always wanted... her marriage was still fresh and she had just given birth to her second baby boy.  But life is a waterfall, and change came quick.  She became an all-too-common American statistic: a single mother of two boys, wandering back and forth between minimum-wage jobs and welfare.  But my mother was a lot more than that.

I remember how she taught us to read when we were only 2 and 3.  How she'd walk to the library with us, or take city buses.  I remember one time we rode the city bus to see a fireworks display, and when it was over, the buses had stopped running and we didn't even have the money for a ride home.  I remember turning on the stove when the heat went out.  And I remember her coming to bat for me more times than I can count.

One time I went crazy in New Orleans.  Suffered a manic episode during Mardi Gras, which is about the worth thing you can do when you are bipolar.  She drove all the way down in a van to New Orleans to snatch me up and bring me back home.  A few years later I went crazy again in Vegas.  She did it again.

There is much more to say.  I love my mom.  She taught me pretty much everything I know.  And since she doesn't wear jewelry and she's allergic to perfume, I figured I'd give her this. 

Wants

- Something 2.0ish...
- A sales template for use on eBay and craigslist sales listings.
- Creative and appealing language in the template... none of this lorem ipsum epsilon garbage.
- Eventually I'll want to get a web template for her site, where she'll be listing the stuff she has for sale and also promoting her annual garage sale.  If you want bonus points, you could submit a design of a garage sale template in the same vein as the craigslist / ebay template.

Don't want

- Something that will remind eBayers and craigslist buyers of every other sales template they've ever seen before.
