Cool Art and T-shirts

My unnaturally talented sister-in-law, Danielle, has recently graduated with degrees in Art and Math. Unique combination, I know, but you would expect it coming from a girl who does gymnastics on horseback and wins boxing championships. She just started a blog showcasing all of her creations that are for sale. Here are a few of my favorites:

She also sells really sweet t-shirts. I think the term for this would be upcycling? Check out t-shirts reinvented.

If you're looking for some unique art for your home or a sweet t-shirt, check out Danielle's blog for more!

  1. This is so cool that you did this! You are so thoughtful! I hope Danielle sees it.
    So, about the garden (ahem)...
    1. The Zinnias are from seed and are AMAZING!! I am going to do them every year now because they are so easy and robust!
    2. I have scarlet runner beans on the poles..they are super fast-growing and they bloom! They attract humming birds, too. You can eat the beans early as snap-peas, mid-season as lima beans, and late season as dry beans called monster beans. I'm going to use them mostly for the monster beans because I've heard they are scrumptious!
    3. I used a lot of good compost I got for free at the Nursery that I used to work at. I also just recently put newspapers down as a weed barrier/compost. It's a great, free compost and it's good for the soil. If you have a shredder, it would be perfect for spreading over seedlings to keep soil moisture in. I just have it spread out in between my plants where there was bare soil.
    Mom is going to bring some more compost she found on sale that I bought and I'm going to spread that on top of the newspaper.
    4. Traveling to Colorado - now I'll have to think about that one...

    I also fertilize a lot! About once a week...but I just put a little bit of fertilizer down so that I don't burn the plants. I also don't fertilize new or struggling plants because it will kill them.
    Oh, and I just started pouring my bean-water on the garden after I cook dry beans. I hate to waste that kind of stuff, so I figured the garden could use it.
    I think that's all that I do. If I come up with any more stuff, I'll let you know :)
