The Great Cover Up....

So, how's everyone doing?  I hope you are enjoying the upcoming season.   So far I had been enjoying the last couple of weeks.  Too bad with the drastic change of temperature...the days being 60 degrees and higher to the nights being around 40, made me a little sick.  Yup! (sniffles)
  So last month I went shopping. Since I had the time and a gift card that I had yet to use since Christmas.  I figured it was the perfect opportunity to get around and start looking around. I purchased a shirt from the store which at the time was being sold for two dollars....YES!!!!! TWO DOLLARS!!!!  Hey you can never beat a clearance rack.  Well this girl stocked up!  Hell I even bought a Christmas sweater!  You never know!
Well long story short I was excited about my new purchase that I decided to wear it to a family dinner.  Good idea...until I spilled sauce all over it.  I was like DAMN!  I told you it was two dollars.  I couldn't let go...Yeah throw it away.  Nah! not my style, and I certainly wasn't going to fight the might put a hole in my shirt.
So I thought to myself...what can I do to salvage it? It took a little while but it hit me.  Why not draw on it?  What's the worst that can happen?  So I did.

I think it came out pretty good.  And hey it's one of a kind.  So I'm happy with it.

As far as my other projects are concerned.  Everything seems to be coming together.  On my next post I will be talking about my new favorite tool., well I mean the carpenters plastic drop cloth.  It's an amazing product especially when creating and altering patterns.  Ah, more on that later.
Well enjoy the rest of your weekend.
