i made recyclng bins for my mom for mother's day. i bought the bins at target and drew what goes in each bin on the lid. cans, plastic, cardboard. i made the yellow parts kind of offset from the lines to make it look screenprinted and poppy. she loved them. several hours later, she called from the kitchen, "do they have any for newspapers?" and i said, "um... they're... the same..." and she goes, "no, you know, one for newspapers. do they make those?" and i said, "you know i DREW that stuff, right?" and then she freaked out, jumping up and down and clapping and cheering. i guess not realizing that they didn't come that way is a pretty good compliment. yeah? yeah. weeee!

 Travis, those are so amazing. Very well done. As I've said many times before, you're extremely talented. You're mother sounds so adorable, too. Obviously if she was fooled, you're good. And also, you were amazing the other night... and morning.

thanks, ashley. now, is this the forum to air personal affairs? yes. clearly it IS. nobody minds, right, everybody? anyway, i'm sorry i was out of pineapple juice. i promised you PINEAPPLE JUICE. next time. you're pretty.

oh, i forgot to mention that i used sharpie on these. i don't usually like using sharpie, since they eventually turn to crap (from the acid, i believe), but the color scheme was super nice and target didn't have a good selection of opaque paint pens (my preferred choice).

busted! nice detective work.
anyway, truth be told... we're dorks. and it pains me because (sniff!) i always wanted this all to (sob!) be about (whimper!) the crafts. why, oh why have i let things stray?

apologies,
travis nichols

yeah, i wasn't going to be the one to admit that i was snooping- but i was thinking that too!
not that long-distance isn't possible, but long-distance with pineapple juice?! might be asking too much.

 Hmmm, I hope the sharpie doesn't get all gross over time. Then your lovely design will be all ruined and we don't want that. There, that was my attempt to bring it back to the crafts for you because you, mister, are the one to blame for it not being about the crafts. And, Travis, dear, how on earth did you know I like pineapple juice???
