Welcome to Aussmom Designs!!! Albrecht Fundraiser

Hey everyone!!


I'm so excited to be writing this blog post right now. If you're reading it that means my website is finally live! This has been an idea in my head for more than 2 years. I have been crafting since I started scrapbooking in high school. Since then I've been inspired by the world of graphic design, photography and vinyl design to expand into several areas of design and DIY. I've made items for friends here and there, as gifts and to purchase, but a business of my own was only a dream. Even if it only funds my craft habit I call that a win! :)


In my full time life I am a police officer for the City of Kenosha. I love my job but I love the opportunity to be creative. I've dedicated a lot of my free time to advancing myself for my full time job and there just aren't enough hours in the day (to the parents out there - HOW DO YOU DO IT!?). Earlier this year 2021 delivered us a huge blow when one of our Sergeants, Trevor Albrecht #515, passed away unexpectedly on 1/16/21 in a tragic snowmobile accident. I won't even try to describe the type of person he was because words will never do him justice but I'll leave it at this - I got more encouraging emails and talks from him in the 9 months he was one of my bureau supervisors than in the rest of my 10 year career from all of my supervisors combined. He was truly one of a kind.


Trevor had recently helped to found the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which combined our drug unit and our gang unit into a cohesive new powerhouse unit. He had big dreams for this unit and sadly died only a few months after it became a reality. During the planning process Darrin Labelle from American Laser Mark, Inc in Kenosha helped Trevor design the new SIU patch. The patch is a tribute to the AMC Hornet and Trevor loved it. Sadly, I had to make the tweaks to the design with the thin blue line and Trevor's unit number to honor him and his amazing contribution to the KPD.


Trevor's sudden passing made me realize there's no time to wait to chase dreams, so here I am! I couldn't think of a better way to start off my shop than to have a collection of items dedicated to Trevor. 100% of the profits will be going to the Albrecht family (only used materials for the items, actual shipping costs, credit card transaction fees will be deducted - not time, website fees, shipping materials etc).


Since this is my first time setting this website up please be patient as I am a one person show and I know how popular this will be! But also don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or recommendations for the shop moving forward! All shirts will be available on a pre-order basis. Instructions are on the website. Happy shopping and I hope you LOVE them!
