Writer's Club T-Shirts

At the school I teach at, I run "writer's club". I wanted to buy T-shirts from NaNoWriMo for them but everytime I check their website they are out of stock, so I decided to make them.

I used iron ons for inkjet printers and it took me FOUR trys to get it peel off without completely destroying the t-shirt. So yes... I have four crappy looking shirts in my closet and don't know what to do with them!

Stained Picture Frames

I bought a pack of three for $2 of these

at IKEA. (Okay well actually I bought 4 packs of these so I had 12 picture frames).

I went to Home Depot for the wood staining product. I used "Early American". I applied two coats to the frame. I gave them 24 hours to dry and applied a glossy finish, again two coats, that I had picked up at Lowe's.

Each frame is a 4x6 and I bought them so that I had something to do with all those cross-stitch patterns I've been doing!

Here's the completed product:
