more blue + red

i had my first go at a two color freezer paper stencil last night. this tshirt was supposed to be for me, but is now going to our nanny. i botched the shirt i was making for her, and when i say botched, picture me dropping a paintbrush loaded with black ink on the front of the shirt. big black smears and lots of words that are not appropriate for children. oh well. our nanny totally deserves this, she has been absolutely wonderful and has made what was a scary situation for us (leaving the children with a "stranger") so easy and good. the huffsters adore her and so do we. david finishes up traveling next week and kristan will packing up to go back to college, so the timing was great. we love you kristan and will miss you dearly!

the design for this shirt was, um, shall we say, heavily borrowed from a pillow from this store, thank you john for the awesome link! sorry for the crummy picture, it was taken at work. i didnt have time to take some this morning at home because of course kristan showed up early. damn her for being so good.

incredible shirt! and love your new banner. How do you do that? Are you a secret html genius?? I use blogger too and can't figure that out.

Now who's working the tiny cuts? Very cute design, heavily borrowed or not.

What kind of paint are you using? The plain fabric paint I bought (Lumiere, I think) bleeds mercilessly. Their metallic stuff is great though.

oh my goodness, i love that design. I need to work on my stencil paper technique. My last attempt was really rather unfortunate.

love the new banner too. I was admiring that picture last week when you posted it--such a cool angle.
