Merlotte's Bar Shirt

I found a wooden shirt plaque at the Dollar Tree Store, for a $1. (lol)  I am sure it was intended to be used for childrens sports plaques or your favorite baseball team.  I am sure those are all custe  BUT I couldn't help but Vamp it out.

You will need:
White Acrylic Paint (the cheap ones that are like 50cents)
Wooden Tshirt Plaque
A print out of any logo your have/ or you can draw or trace a pattern.
Crystal Lacquer or Crystal Glaze something to preserve what you have done.

  1. The first thing I did was paint the plaque.  I used 2 coats allowing time to dry between each quote.  
  2. While my paint was drying I printed a Merlotte's logo on a photo paper so it looked GREAT.
  3. When my shirt was dried I glued the logo where I wanted it.  I then coved the entire shirt with crystal lacquer   It takes alot of product to do this but it is worth it to preserve what you have done.  
I made a Merlotte's Bar shirt but the possiblity of projects is endless.  Here are some ideas:
  • Fangtasia Shirt
  • Another Merlotte's shirt
  • Lou Pines Beer/Trueblood/Herveaux Contracting SEE HBO Store for ideas.  
  • Bon Temps High School Shirt
  • Twilight theme (useing one of the books, or your fav slogan, TEAM JB OR EC, Team Swiz)
  • Location advertisement or travel shirt (Forks, WA, Sunndale, CA, Bon Temps, LA, Mystic Falls etc)
  • Sunnydale High Shirt or UC Sunnydale
  • Vampire Diaries (team stefan or Damon, Mystic Grill, etc)
  • Hospital shirt or scrubs from BEING HUMAN or just a BEING HUMAN logo
  • Rock Band Shirt from Lestat from Ann Rice Novel. 
These were all ideas I had...I WANT TO SEE yours you don't have to have a wood plaque just use paper.  
Here is a paper T-SHIRT PATTTERN  Show me what you got.  Post a link below or email me your design

Breaking Dawn Preveiw.

If you are a nutty Twilight fan just like me you have already seen this but here is the Breaking Dawn Trailer.  I personally can't wait.  Wish yall lived closer.   I will be watching solo.  On a positive note... I always find the best seat.  What do you think?  What are you waiting to see most of all.  I can't wait to see pregnancy and birth.  I bet it will end before we get into all of that.  I hate reading spoiler sites, I like to be surprised so I guess I will see when I arrive

TrueBlood Headphones

Since True Blood premiered in 2008, I have had to upgrade to HD, subscribed to HBO, and bought a Blu-ray player.......Now I can't wait to upgrade my music listening expereince to the best  headphones on the market today.  I was a fan of V-MODA, and now OMG...

Here is more information from their website:
V-MODA and HBO have partnered on special pairs of V-MODA for True Blood headphones and ear buds. The V-MODA for True Blood collection will contain six different models of ear buds and headphones and will also feature a whole new look, different from what we have been used to for now, which have been the Crossfade LP and Vibrato. The new style will be called “Hearwear” and will be specifically designed for those who like the sexy stylings of the True Blood series. The V-MODA for True Blood line of headphones and ear buds will debut at Amazon, HBO Shop, and V-MODA on June 26th. Just in time for the True Blood premiere.  Be sure you don't forget to sign up with V-MODA for notification.  I have a feeling these things are going to be in HUGE demand.  Just keep your hands off of  mine.  I BITE.

Waiting SUCKS!  Not only am I waiting for the premiere, but now I am waiting on these headphones....

As a mother of a teen I have to tell you these things LAST.  More information to come.
