I love Dr Seuss. And I especially love How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
I've read it to my kids every Christmas (multiple times each season) since 1998.
So when I saw this t-shirt in Walmart for just $7 (£4.48) I knew I had to treat myself to it. But that lightbulb containing his 'Wonderful Awful Idea' needed a little more blinging, don't you think (is there anything that couldn't do with a little blinging?)
The hot glue gun had already seen service last night so a little more couldn't hurt. And it meant I'd have something suitable to wear to the class Christmas party when I was volunteering today (the kids loved it, though were worried I was pre-heart-growng-3-sizes-that-day Grinch).
I bought a bumper bag of cheap gems from Michaels (an American craft shop) a while back for other projects, so surrounded the Grinch's lightbulb and put a gem on each snowflake centre.
The only problem now is having popped the t-shirt on Betty (my dressmaking bodyform) to photo, I'm now thinking that with the addition of a Father Christmas hat, this makes quite a good 'decoration' for my bedroom, which up until now had a distinct lack of Christmas in it.
