So I wandered onto the lovely stenciling board one day, saw how cool it was and how many possibilities were now spread open before me, and I just had to try it. But what to stencil....? Enter the wonders of homestarrunner.com and the ever fabulous Teen Girl Squad. Add the fact that my boyfriend is a nerd, and we get the following:
That's right, my boyfriend is now in possession of his very own Sci-Fi Greg stenciled t-shirt. Which he has indeed worn in public.
(A slight explanation of Sci-Fi Greg: http://homestarrunner.com/tgs9.html When it says "it's over!", click the 'o'.)
I just got my Back to School stuff from BadKittyUSA33! I'm so impressed. She found argyle for me!
I got an argyle spiral notebook (the inside covers are all decorated with stickers!), some mini highlighters, a whole bunch of personalized pencils, and the best part, a completely awesome pencil pouch made out of argyle socks, and another pair for me to wear! Yay!!
Earlier this summer I decided that I wanted to try out crewel embroidery. So I found a cute little kit at the Salvation Army and proceeded to make it. When I was finished, I thought "Well that's nice. Now what?" So I decided to turn it into a purse, which, btw, I'm rather proud of.
It's lined and closes with a snap.
I was going to keep it, but then I decided that I don't need another bag, and I have to support my crafting habit somehow. I will miss it.
Hmm... This could be an interesting one. I currently reside in Norman, OK, and consider it my home. Sadly, I can't stand football. Lucky me. I'm completely head-over-heels in love with Vancouver, British Columbia. Although with school starting up soon, I'm not sure swaps are the best idea for me right now. Still thinking...
I love argyle, I wish it were the new black, and I have a problem with having to buy anything I see it on. This is completely awesome, especially considering I don't knit. DIY argyle. I like it. I like it a lot.
That is absolutely adorable. Yeah, I'm almost 21, but I've definitely got a Blue's Clues t-shirt. That I wear. In public.
That is such a great idea, and so obvious (a Mailbox mailbox...imagine that), but I never would have thought of it. Makes me wish 1) I owned my house instead of renting and 2) I had a curb-side mailbox instead of the one attached to my porch.
I work at a shop that makes sports jerseys and things, so I'm always sewing at work (which is actually how I got over my fear of sewing machines...). I had been working there for almost a year with no major injuries, but I knew my time was coming. Sure enough, one day I was sewing a routine jersey number, and the needle went through my left pointer finger, from top to bottom on the inside edge. It missed the nail (thank goodness!), and it was so close to the edge that you could see the trail where the needle went. It was all so fast I didn't even realize what had happened at first. It kinda hurt, but it wasn't that bad. And the needle broke, so we decided that I won.
