Fun Personalized T-Shirts

I LOVE blog hopping.
I LOVE reading blogs.
The wealth of creative ideas is A-MAZING!

I will confess, however, that I hardly ever log into my google reader
to read the blogs that I "follow" or have just added to my reader.
The shear volume of content to read scares me off.

But there are blogs that I visit on a regular basis...
they usually get added to my links/creative blogs list on my own blog,
so that I know to go back and check for new ideas.

I guess you could call me a blog snob.
Or just a busy mom...
because I'm pretty particular about what I spend my time reading.
I'm grateful that you other blog snobs busy moms take time to read
my ramblings...here and on my regular blog.

One creative mom that I visit often is Cheri at
I am Momma Hear Me Roar!
She's always got new and fun ideas to share,
plus she's got little boys in her life and we all know
that sometimes theres a shortage of awesome things
for awesome little boys.

So, I started making some "Cheri knock-offs"
for some of the little boys in my life.
Not only do I have a son but I also have four godsons
that I like to make gifts for.

All you need is a plain shirt,
a bleach pen, some embroidery floss,
and you can do some freezer paper stenciling
like I showed you a couple of weeks ago.
Make sure to check out Cheri's blog for a bleach pen tutorial.

This first one is pretty much a direct copy of this shirt Cheri made.
My godson Asher LOVED it!
The second one I made was for my godson Jeremiah.
I made this one based on this shirt of Cheri's.
Obviously mine is a little more on the messy side,
but I like it like that...
and Jeremiah loves it.
That's all that matters.
The kid put it on right away.
(I guess it helps that he's really into muscle shirts right now too.)
So, go grab a bleach pen, some old t-shirts and start making things brand new!
Oh and Cheri has TONS of other stuff, not just shirts for little guys!
Go check it out!

I've got a couple of giveaways going on over at my regular blog,
so make sure to stop over and check em out!


  1. great idea! I do the same thing with blogs except that I follow many on bloglines and the ones on GFC, I scroll down on the dashboard page to see if there is a post I want to visit and often there is at least one, like this one for example. :) Have a great day!

  5. That is so flippin' cute!

  6. The blog snob confession kind of just made my day. Just thought I'd let you know.

    (and I love the shirts. Bleach pens scare me because I usually do something that is less than artistic....and NOT on purpose. Maybe I need to give them another chance!)
