I made a #YAsaves image for myself

I felt so supported, moved, and empowered by the whole #YAsaves movement and everyone who’s raised their voices to support SCARS in the face of the WSJ article, that I decided to create an image that meant that to me. I found a great image at iStockphoto (which I bought), added text, and I’ve ordered two keychains which I’m going to attach to my luggage. I’m hoping they arrive before ALA! I also ordered three pads of sticky notes, and if they arrive before ALA, I’ll bring them and the first three people to ask me for them will get them.

Meanwhile, I’m going to add the image to my blog. It’s such a positive visual reminder for me of our vibrant YA lit community and all the incredible support I received. I am not alone any more when I feel attacked or in pain–it’s such an incredibly good feeling!

So here’s the image. What do you think?

PS I’m happy to share the image with anyone who wants to use it if I legally can. I *think* I can since I bought the image for use on iStockPhoto….? Any one know?

    That is a beautiful #yasaves image! We would love ask you to put it in the store for our fundraiser, but that’s not allowed.

    A simple license, which is likely what you bought, lets you print the image on anything for personal use, or use it in promotional items, but does not allow you to put it on items intended for sale.

    Basically, you can share it all you want, with whoever you want, but it can’t be used to sell anything. That’s the only restriction I know of, though. 🙂 There are no limits on personal use.

    Thank you, ClosetGeeks; that’s helpful! So I can give away things with the image, and others can use it on their blogs if they want. Just not anything for sale. Very cool!
