Back To Crafting

I finally got my follower count up and then summer hit and I disappeared! Our summer was the busiest summer I've ever had. We only spent two weekends the whole summer at home. So needless to say blogging got neglected. I'm just hoping at least a few of you still stop by every now and then to check up on me.

So now that school is back in session and my life has somewhat settle into a "normal" routine, I'd like to share with you what I've been up to. I've been seeing freezer paper stenciling all over blogland. However, I didn't ever really get what it was or understand what all the hype was about. Until this summer! I decided to figure out the freezer paper mystery and I am now hooked. For those who are as naive as I was- freezer paper stenciling is a way to paint designs onto shirts. It's a way to make your kids all those designer graphic tees they want for a lot cheaper. There is a great tutorial on MADE.

My first freezer paper project was to make my little man some sports shirts. I bought tees at Hobby Lobby for $3 a piece and now they look like shirts you pay at least twice that for.
