Commissioned Piece

Jane was of the opinion that she needed a Camp Half-Blood shirt, à la Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I said I'd make her one because I've been wanting to try cutting a freezer paper stencil with my Cricut electronic cutter ever since I got it for Christmas. Also because I pretty much do whatever Jane tells me. Like last month when she said, "I need you to come to school tomorrow at 11:00 to help my friend and me give our book report. Dress like a reporter and bring a microphone. We'll have your script."

I can't quite get over my bias that black and orange should be for Halloween only, but I guess you have to go by the book.

Jane likes it.

you're going to have some jealous kids on your hands, either that or a good business starting :)

TO JANE:
YOU ARE A LUCKY LUCKY GIRL!
YOU ARE ALSO A WONDERFUL GIRL, WITH A WONDERFUL MOTHER.
LOVE, GRANDMA B.

That's fantastic.
Jack (9) was Percy Jackson for last Halloween and had an orange shirt with Camp Half Blood on it and a black creature of some kind on it, but I paid $15 for it because I just wasn't as creative as you.
We did, though, paint wooden beads for a camp necklace. They're fantastic. One has the empire state building, one has the golden fleece, and whatever else it says in the books...
