dusting off 2005.

The trendiest fad graphic tee of 2005.  It came... it stayed... it left as though it never even existed.  Attention ladies and gents the bloody reminder of older times has emerged once again... from the back of my closet...dug up in my move to the city.  There it sat...next to the pile of goodwill giveaways.  The problem being that it was just much too nostalgic to part with... so as the month passed by and more and more items were making it to the donation pile i had to find a use for this piece of history.  But try as i might... there is just no way of wearing this shirt in public without looking like a poor fashion mishap.  Some may say this one was ALWAYS a faux paux.  How though when everyone from the likes of Ashton Kutcher in his punked days..Pamela Anderson in her post plastic mess..the fashion forward..and the preppy hipster highschool kids were all plasrered in this t-shirt.  Dressed up or dressed down...this was no mistake.  Maybe it was in poor taste to wear this religious symbol as a fashion.

But as i see it... if you love Jesus why not make a statement?

And that statement is one that i still don't wanna bury.  In a time when its fashionable to wear rosaries and crosses... let those of us who want to wear them proudly and stylishly wear them as a token of our faith and beliefs.  And so as there is no way to even be caught dead wearing this old trend... i have found a new use.. possibly even a better use for this piece of cotton.

And so last night at midnight... i got the creativity up to whip what i needed to together to turn this baby out!  Scavenged the house for my white thread... dusted off the sewing machine... found my fabric scissors and my freestyle talent.  And the result was this little beauty!  OW!  Pretty damn hot if i do say so myself.  I am satisfied.  And i can't wait to get some more DIY projects done and on display.

Needless to say i am very excited... keep coming back for more!
