I was pretty sure that none of you would be too excited to show up here this morning and look at pictures of my eleven year old boy in a "We Have The Map To Candy Mountain" t-shirt.
That's what took up a few hours of my time last night, (after the labour intensive task of driving to the city to pick up boxes and bags and cartons of sustenance).
I had gotten the Best Mom In The World Award from the boy after ordering a t-shirt off the internet that depicts one of his favourite weird youtube series. However. The thing about ordering clothes from ebay is that unless you take the time to measure your boy carefully, you might land up with an unsuitable size when it does come in the mail.
Which may land you in the spot of figuring out how to alter a t-shirt in time for school the following morning.
Which means you kind of used up the time you might have spent finishing a Darfur bag.
Which means you stay up two hours past your bedtime, then get up at 5:30 to get the rest of it done.
I couldn't just be my son's hero- no, I had to be yours too.
Over the Christmas break, I really enjoyed losing myself in my buttons without the pressure of cleaning them up before toddlers ate them for snack.
(and it wasn't easy to sew on that kitty head on one end, and the tail on the other. Nope, that was not easy)
Pockets: One exterior, three interior. One quite small- perfect for business cards.
Yes, this photo is sideways. And because I'm well into my day now and will be working on a time deficit and sleep deficit... I'm not going to change it. Nope. You can't make me.

start price: $25- Cdn.
