I've had a few t-shirt ideas for awhile, so with those in mind, I went to the store and picked up some shirts to bring it to fruition.
The first shirt paid homage to one of the best films ever... "The Big Lebowski".
I considered making one that said, "You want a toe? I'll get you a toe." With a line drawing of a toe. However, I discovered that doing a Google image search for "toe" is a painful process that brings up some pretty disgusting and funkified toe anomalies. PLUS, after about 30 seconds of looking through toe pictures, I felt like a complete weirdo and decided to drop it. Therefore, "The Dude Abides".
My second t-shirt was a tribute to The Lonely Island's "I Threw it on the Ground". (A funny, yet pointless song that makes me laugh.)
I was so proud of using my new heat press and making some shirts that I knew he would actually wear and appreciate. I packed them up and shipped them the next day.
UNFORTUNATELY, I guess that size "Adult XL" at Joann's is actually a Young Adult size for teenagers. Yup, the shirts were tighter than what you would see in a Britney Spears video.
So, of course, I begged for pics to post. If I'm going to flop, at least let me get a giggle out of it.
I think it was more out of pity for me that he did it. He knew how upset I was about the shirts not fitting, but I did laugh hysterically when I saw this and told him that he could always try out for The Village People if the Army didn't work out. ;)
After the shirt fail, I felt the need to redeem myself. I had gotten the idea from my Silhouette forum and found the artwork to recreate it.
"I got a fever... and the only prescription... is more cowbell."
What he's going to do with a giant cowbell that has Christopher Walken plastered on it, I honestly don't know. But it was fun to make.
Finally, Cameron ran up to me this past week with his homework folder and asked me to embellish it. When I asked him what he wanted, he said that he wanted the Notre Dame logo. (BTW, Notre Dame is doing fantastic this season. Go Irish!)
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving! This is the first year that I have to make the turkey. I'm hoping that I don't accidentally poison everyone. :)
