Man, posting my crafts is addictive.  I get feedback, praise, and I get a total high when I see how many ppl have viewed my project and...even better...REPLIED!  AHHHH.

Speaking of personal ego stoking...this isn't really my project.  My fianc is Herr Craftster this time.  The school where I taught has a spring fair every year.  There's a popular booth where you can do "Fish Art".  You paint a fish (real, dead, stinky) and then press a garment of your choosing (buy a shirt, bring a shirt) on the fish.  I gave Mr. Fianc a pair of plain white cotton woven boxers (do you know how hard those are to find?) for his birthday; the next day, we set off to the fair to decorate those undies! 

I write too much. 


I tell him he has a Nice Bass.  It really is a bass.

haha, funny story. I second the 'does it smell like a fish' question, which ounds extremely wrong when talking about undies, lol.

Painting a dead fish....wow....never would have thought of that one. A few more weeks on here and nothing craft related will surprise me anymore. Your guy really does have a great bass....

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I've been meaning to do this forever, except with "nice bass" stencilled on the back...because my last name is Bass.

Although, the dead fish makes for a pretty good story, and a cool image!

Oh man!
We did this project on my first day of third grade and I remember having so much fun!

My boyfriend's parents actually have a very cool print of a fish made the exact same way! I love the idea of putting the bass on the bim Grin
