You The Designer has just announced winner of our joint mini contest for 2 free tees (P&P included) to the comment that best describes "why outdoors is way more fun than indoors".
The winner is Lori:
“I really love the outdoors because it means forgetting about the world and being free. I don’t have to think about deadlines and stroke lines, just what flavor ice cream I want when I sit on the grass and watch the clouds make shapes.” Lori
Here are some other great entries that unfortunately didn't make it:
Nature in general is very inspirational.. What drives me out from home is actually the sea.. and the sand.. I live in small town here in Italy close to the sea and the name is “Senigallia-The velvet sand” because of the wonderful beach that we have.. What inspire me most is the space without limits in front of you when you point the view from the water to the horizon..

Outside, after a winter cooped up,
Is breezes and birches and sun.
Outside, after months indoors,
Is sneezes and searches and fun.
Sorry, I can never resist a bit of doggerel. ;o)
It is not beauty or attributes that are the inspiration. Nature, the world’s canvas, reflects every heart and soul gazing on it by drawing the essence of who you are by reflection in your mind of what you see. Nature as purity, stillness and rest, portrays that deep self which our world no longer accepts in a fast paced society: innocence. It therefore guides way to nature inspiring your heart - whereas, it is your heart that has inspired the vision and interpetation of nature. One Creator; one core; all creation.
I love the outdoors because it reminds me how fragile life really is.
i love being outside because no matter how amazing your printer is, how fantastic of a camera you have, or how many pantone swatchbooks you own… you can never match the breathtaking colors of fall leaves on the trees, hot pink azaleas blooming, or the constantly changing blue of the sky. you can’t duplicate a miracle, no matter how genius of a designer you are.
