Earth Month At Jimmo Designs



April is an Earth Month! No matter on which side of the climate change debate you find yourself, when the spring comes, most of us awaken to the fact that something has to be done about the environmental pollution, species extinction, unsustainable living, and wasteful use of resources. 

As people all over the world gather to collectively observe the 48th Earth Month, many take time to review their own lifestyle strategies, embracing  recycling, reusing, reducing household waste and the use of plastic, chemicals, and ecologically unsustainable products.

Much has to be done to protect the environment, but instead of waiting for the municipalities or politicians to change things, each of us can start taking steps in his or her own home, office, school, village or town. 
If you are not already practicing some form of environmental awareness, you can star today. Every small step counts. 
  • buy organic
  • buy locally grown produce
  • buy seasonal
  • grow your own produce
  • make your own food whenever you can
  • support local, family operated businesses
  • use and reuse Mason jars for storage
  • in your household use glass, china, stoneware, paper, wood, and metal instead of plastic
  • buy a water filter and stop buying bottled water
  • buy biodegradable detergents 
  • replace toxic household cleaners with vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice and tea tree oil to clean kitchen and bad surfaces
  • recycle whatever can be recycled
  • donate things you do not need instead of simply throwing them away
  • repair whatever can be repaired
  • take your own shopping bags or baskets to a store or a farmers' market
  • plant flowers for bees
  • plant a tree
  • talk to your representatives about the need of better garbage disposal and recycling in you community
  • spread the word and teach others
For many people this might be easier said than done, but lack of time or lack of money are not really good excuses. Reusing and recycling can actually save you money. So does growing your own food.

Take a few small steps and see how your life is slowly changing. Be a conscious consumer who understands the ecological consequences of modern living.

Like most people, you will not always be able to follow your ecological resolve 100% at all times. Things change a bit when you travel for business or go on vacation, but with a little self discipline you can make the change and be a good example to others.

Happy Year of the Dog! Celebrate Lunar New Year with Jimmo


Happy Year of the Dog!

February 16, 2018 marks the beginning of the Chinese New Lunar Year - the Year of the Dog. Join us to celebrate a new beginning.

In Chinese zodiac Dog is the eleventh animal that arrived at the Jade Emperor's feast. Some people believe that it was the Buddha who actually invited the animals to join him. 

In Chinese astrology zodiac signs are combined with the Five Elements. Each animal sign appears every twelve years, but only every sixty years in each of its elements. The Five Elements: metal, water, wood, fire, and earth determine a special quality of each zodiac sign for a particular year. The current cycle is dominated by the earth element, hence the Earth Dog. The Dog will return again in twelve years, but we will have to wait for the next Earth Dog till 2078!

The Chinese believe that both, the zodiac sign and the element, affect destiny and personality of a person born under them. The predictions for the year to come also depend on this unique combination.


In Chinese culture Dog is considered to be a luck bringing animal. Dogs are honest, loyal, caring, protective, and faithful, and will never abandon their masters. This quality of the zodiac animal carries a promise for a good and prosperous year. Earth elements add some stability. If you had difficult time holding on to your fortune during the Fire Cycle, your luck may change a bit for the better, but be careful, dogs are very playful! Don't gamble your fortune away and remember that nothing comes without work.

In Chinese culture, people born under the sign of the Dog are considered to be honest, loyal, amiable, kind, industrious but also cautious and prudent. They are ambitious and outgoing, are great friends and faithful spouses. They are resourceful and make good doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants, politicians, and civil servants.


Unfortunately, the Year of the Dog is usually very bad for people born in the Dog year. The destiny of everybody else depends on their own birth year and how their personal zodiac animal interacts with the dog. Very complex birth charts are used by an Chinese astrologers or geomancers to determine individual horoscopes and predict a fortune.

No matter what your birth sign, we hope that you will have a very good year. Remember, that no matter what the predictions are, you and only you are the true master of your fortune.

To help you celebrate the Lunar New Year, Jimmo Designs created an attractive Year of the Dog Collection. The collection features apparel, mugs, and pillows, but you can also get a leash or a bandana for your puppy. For a good start Jimmo is offering you a lucky 18% discount on all items in this collection. Use code

YOD18

at checkout. Offer expires February 22, 2018.

International shoppers will find variety of products designed by James in Jimmo Designs Year of the Dog Redbubble store. Shirts and hoodies are also sold on Amazon. They are great as gifts for dog owners, dog trainers, and everybody who loves dogs, Chinese culture, and oriental designs.

Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous Chinese Lunar Year of the Earth Dog

Cold Winter, Knitted Hats And Jimmo's Wish For The New Year



Winter! For some of us it means escape to a warmer climate, sunny beaches and cool drinks under the palm trees; for others it means winter sports fun in posh ski resorts, but for most of us the cold weather means one thing only - stay as warm and cozy as you possibly can. Mittens, scarves, warm sweaters, knitted hats, padded jackets, and lots of hot chocolate.

Parts of the country are still affected by the cold weather pattern La Niña. We haven't seen any snow in Roswell yet, but this winter is much colder than the last. Our Winter Collection now includes warm hoodies, sweatshirts, knitted pom pom hats and even warm sports jackets. Our wish is to keep you warm and stylish.

Cold Winter, Knitted Hats And Jimmo's Wish For The New Year

Even the coldest winter will eventually end and we are looking forward into an exciting year. Jimmo will introduce new products and many new designs. We will keep you posted.

If you are still working on your New Year's Resolutions, Jimmo has created a small collection of motivational apparel that can help you with your resolve. Visit the store and browse the Motivation Collection if you are looking for a cool motivational gift for yourself or your loved ones. Till January 28, 2018, Jimmo Designs offer 15% off on all items in this collection. Simply type

motivation2018

at check out. If your resolve for this year is to spend money wisely, this is a good start.

As we are looking forward into this new year, we still remember the turbulence of the last. Hurricanes, wild fires, social unrest. Those who were directly affected by the events, and those who watched the news daily, were left with little hope. And yet, the beginning of a new year opens a way to new possibilities, betterment, and a chance for a new start.

We sincerely wish everyone a very good, healthy, peaceful, and prosperous year, full of joy and wonder. Sometimes we cannot change what life brings us, but we certainly can change our attitude and the way we react to even most difficult events. Stay motivated, empower yourself, and always keep your head up.

With best wishes - Jim & Dominique
