So, my youngest brother came to me for some creative counsel, wanting to make a t-shirt to wear to a basketball game he is playing in with the Kinesiology Club at one of our local community colleges. Why make and not purchase? Because it would be about $10 dollars cheaper to make. Bonding time was an added plus! He purchased some dark tee shirt transfers from Walmart, a black tee from Hobby Lobby (yay! for 40% off coupon!), and according to his ink readout from his inkjet printer, the use of ink was minimal. Here is the fruit of our labor:
My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is an animated show that teens, female and male, and even adults are becoming avid fans of - including my brother. Surprisingly, the show emphasizes a lot of values like teamwork, kindness, friendship, clean humor, etc. I do admit, some of it has made me laugh. Okay, enough admitting for one day.

One of my favorite ways to gather project inspiration is to visit my local my local Barnes & Noble with my hubby and look through crafting books and magazines. Because they are too expensive to buy (lol), I do what any other crafter on a budget would do - take pictures!These were taken from various magazines (can't remember exactly which ones), but the ones I was flipping through include Cloth, Paper, Scissors; Somerset Studio; Molly Makes; Art Journaling; and a couple more that I can't remember the titles of.
