OH-IO

Guess what? I'm in Ohio!

A miracle happened and I was able to get a ticket to Cincinnati (thanks Angie!!). The timing is perfect too... my best friend had a baby last week!

The great thing? She doesn't know I'm coming! I didn't want to tell her I was coming, in case things didn't work out and I wasn't able to come, so I got in contact with her Mom ;-) We're headed over there tonight for dinner! I'm SO excited to see her and the baby!

As the honorary Aunt, I of course am bringing goodies with me! I've been on a bit of a T-shirt making kick... So here's what I made:
shirts!

I also made this one, it wasn't dry enough when I took the picture of the other three.
shirts!

I'm proud of these shirts. They were relatively easy and in my opinion, turned out pretty darn cute.

The bat and fish were used making freezer paper stencils. The cactus was made with a stencil too, as well as some freehand lines. The cactus is my second favorite one. The best one is definitely the tie! It's and applique and you can learn how to make it here.

More posts to come! I've been geocaching already :-D

  8. Thanks everyone! Sonja - I got the onsies at Walmart. I want to say They are Carter's brand - but I'm not 100% sure.

  9. When I saw the bat one, the music from the old Batman and Robin television series started playing in my head. I'd wear one. Well, maybe not a onesie, but you know what I mean.
