You Rock A Lot of Polka Dots
While wandering about Nordstrom a few short weeks ago, I found a shirt. This shirt was covered in polka dots and the polka dots almost had a hand painted feel to them. I thought it was cute so, naturally, I stroked the sleeve and then turned the price tag over.
So you know what I did? I said, "Bite me, Nordstrom," and I bought a $5.00 t-shirt from Old Navy. Then I spent a night in front of my television watching Fried Green Tomatoes (one of my personal favorites) and I dotted that t-shirt with fabric paint. And with every dot I painted I thought of every dollar I was saving, and it felt a lot like sweet victory.
I followed this tutorial. Now maybe you can make your own dotted shirt while sitting in front of the television watching the OLYMPICS! That's where I'll be for the next several weeks. This time every four years I become a couch potato. But it's only every four years. That's fair, right?
My favorites to watch?
Track and field, beach volleyball, and gymnastics.
Now I must go and focus on the rest of the Opening Ceremonies. Go Team USA, bring me some more feelings of sweet victory, please!
