Screen-print machinery requires manual adjustments and close supervision. This means print appearance may have slight variation from one product to the next.

Pricing is reduced according to extent of defect. Defects can range from print clarity or mishaps, missing logos (front or back), design malfunctions, fabric quality or threading issues, stains / ink speckles and more.

By purchasing items from the graveyard (defect) collection you agree that you are knowingly purchasing a product that is not up to quality standards and present one or more issues. All items are final sale and not eligible for refunds.

I love being a good partner. The one who seemingly has endless energy for massages, cooking, cleaning, errands, you name it. But sometimes I can get so carried away living through this validating persona that I forget about balance and what I need to feel energized and at ease.⁠

Although this behaviour is majorly focused within my romantic relationship, people pleasing does extend beyond the walls of my home and into my family relationships, work relationships and friendships.⁠

People pleasing is more than just doing things to be liked. It's about feeling validated and valuable in relationships where you give it your all (and more). People pleasers however, give away so much of their time and energy to others that they become worn out, anxious and even resentful.⁠

People pleasing can be a result of many things - Perhaps you want to avoid conflict or you fear rejection. Maybe you’re scared of disappointing others or you want to avoid the guilt of saying no. It’s possible you may have a need going unmet and you’re hoping to get something in return, or you don’t know how to adequately meet your own needs so you focus on meeting others instead.⁠

So how do you stop people pleasing and transform the way you show up for the people you love without a scoreboard and worse - forgetting to show up for yourself?⁠

1. Be honest - Tune into how you REALLY feel.⁠
2. Acknowledge your needs - Always put your own oxygen mask on first friends!⁠
3. Say NO - Your no’s will have people trust your yes’s!⁠
4. Develop a self-care routine - Attend to your physical, emotional and spiritual needs daily.⁠
5. Let go of guilt / fear - The worthwhile relationships in your life will be those that value your energy.⁠

Setting clear boundaries and checking in with yourself will stop letting reward and punishment determine your behaviour. While it may not be an easy switch or something you (or I) will master overnight - identifying your people pleasing tendencies and coming up with alternative approaches that respect your capacity for generosity will create sustainable relationships where everyone involved feels safe, loved and respected.

radical transparency
meet jill & sarah
founders of om

Jill Davis (right) and Sarah Vezina (left) are two best friends from small town Dalhousie, New Brunswick. They grew up in the same neighbourhood, took the same bus, had the same babysitter and even rode on the same bike (because Sarah couldn't afford her own). Their inseparability and toxic dependency lasted through adulthood where they quit their corporate jobs to work with each other instead. Given that no one can tell them apart, it's clear that Octopied Mind has been founded on the melting and merging of their brain power, creativity and essence - All of which are used to produce the strange and vulnerable graphic art you see today.

raw edge cropping
custom lengths

A raw-edge crop method is done with a rotary tool. This tool makes a clean cut and allows the fabric to roll up slightly over time. We do not fold over the material and sew it once it has been cut to prevent rolling unless otherwise stated. We also do not recommend you cut your own shirts at home (especially with scissors) unless we've given you proper guidance on how to do so.
