What does craftster mean to me?  So many things!  But the best part for me is..

Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin FRIENDS!!!!!! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
So many different kinds of friends too.  Friends that I've swapped with, friends I haven't swapped with, casual friends and super intense BFF kind of friends.  I am lucky enough to have had a few super friends who have helped me figure out who I am here (thanks Babalina!  I'm not sure I would still be on craftsters if it weren't for you), and a few friends who have helped me get over hero worship (Is rackycoo really talking to me?? LOL).  And I have been blessed to have been discovered (she cold PMed ME!) by an extraordinary person who I would never have met in a million years if it weren't for craftsters, as she lives 9 hours worth of time zone away from me.  BirbBones is an incredible artist and person (and "she likes me!  She really likes me!" I say channeling Sally Fields from many years ago...).  So, when I was trying to figure out what I was going to do for this challenge, I got the idea of asking her for some inspiration.  She sent me a wee sketch that she had done recently.



Such a perfect representation of our friendship!!  She's the flower BTW Grin  And after a few days of thinking, "what to do, what to do?", it became clear.  So please to introduce to y'all my new/used shirt...

BirdBones & suereal & craftsters!!!


I used one of my favo blank shirts, acrylic paint, Sharpie Stained fabric markers, and glow in the dark paint...yup..that is right!  BB's lovely flower face glows in the dark.  I'll add a pic of that as soon as it gets dark.  And while I could have put this in the used/recycle section, or image reproduction, for me it's really about the shirt.  I now have a hug from BirdBones that I can wear when I need it!  And, since I mostly free handed it, I did make a few mistakes, but what's a few mistakes between friends Grin  I also took some liberties with colors as I was working with what I had on hand

Thanks for looking Grin

EDIT:  So...I manged to drop my super bright light source and break it.  And the camera will not cooperate and take the lightly glowing face pic...so y'all will just have to take my word that BB's flower face glows enough to make me happy Grin

You did it! How glorious and thank you Suereal, for letting me take part in a challenge that way. I like what you did with the colors and you look awesome in it Grin

 I wish I'd have the time to contribute my own little crafty project in the praise of Craftster-

because Craftster has made me a happier person, brought me wonderful friends and new ideas and input every day as well as many other things-
I am immensely grateful, Craftster exsists to make us all come together and let us know that we in fact can do anything Grin Grin Grin
