I pinned this idea before summer break. Once summer came around, I started cleaning out my t-shirt cabinet. It was super easy to cut the graphics out - of which are mostly run and gym t-shirts. A couple of the shirts are super old - like the MO state fair one. I think I've had it and held onto it since I was 19.
I used an letter envelope for the size of the graphic, cut out the graphics and sewed them together. The back is the left over pieces of the t-shirts, also letter envelope size. I used 21 t-shirt squares but I think maybe 25 would be extra nice and long. Maybe with the next one!
Here is the link for the idea I originally pinned.
Genuius and so comfortable. I actually finished this scarf before our summer trip to South Padre, and wore it the first day there.
Even Henry likes it...well maybe not as much as the black kitty that he was dying to chase!
I have been pinning a lot lately. A LOT. I really have used those pins a lot more than I have realized to make/create/sew crafty things. I am hoping to share those things here in the next few days (lets be honest: weeks, months).
So lets call this the first of several.
Created in PhotoshopCS3, using a photo from our Christmas 2010 shoot on our front porch.
I will have this printed (or print myself on canvas paper), frame it, and probably let it reside in our foyer. I love sentiment behind these kinds of prints. So personal, inviting, and heartfelt.
I'm looking forward to our 2011 Holiday photoshoot (hopefully this weekend). The pumpkins and mums are present and accounted for on our porch as of tonight, HUGE thanks to Adam :)
October. Oh, how I long for this month to get here every year. I just love all things fall.
October 1: I had the joy of taking a beautiful couple's engagement photos. She is just one of those people who exudes beauty from the inside out. Always a joy to be around and when we talk it's like we've know each other for years. He is super funny and plays music - enough said, right?! :) They make a lovely couple and were so adorable during the whole shoot - more of these to come.
This week we are enjoying time in a "real" fall setting, here in Missouri. The temperatures are amazingly nice and crisp, and the trees are changing colors (i love.). It's so nice to spend time with Adam's Family (<----I always get tickled when I write that;). He made a promise to his little sister this past summer that we would make it up to see her play softball at least once.
She is a sophomore playing varsity and SUCH a cool kid. I'm impressed and amazed at her athletic talent, but more so, her humblness about it all. She is just one of those teens that is incredibly mature and awesome to be around. I'm also amazed that she is this young adult - I met her when she was four, had ringlet blonde curls, loved playing with my hair, and painting our nails, and could happily name off all the different types of cows (so cute!). Time has flown by.
And finally, Adam and I got to meet our newest nephew, Landon.
Yes, those cheeks are irresistable!!! He is such a chilled out 14 mth. old. He is sweet and warmed up to us so quickly. Can't wait to see him again today :) And his older brother, Remington, of course!
And finally, we are missing our sweet Henry, but he is having a stay-cation with our sweet friends, Tammy & Josh, Owen, and his 1/2 brother, Max!
And apparently, he's made himself at home on their bed ;)
And last but not least, (this is for you, Rachel & Lee) Angel-cat:
Madi has had her for the longest time. She is so fluffy, puffy, and loves to have her head scratched.
