Thank you all so much for your kind words of support! I am definitely feeling much better now and have taken on a more positive approach to my situation. You all are AWESOME.
A few months ago, I wore this grey shirt (and the boots) to celebrate my defense. I haven't worn it since because I spilled celebratory seafood pasta on it and was never able to fully get the oil stain out. The shirt sat in my giveaway pile, a reminder of my shameful, drunken eating habits until I came upon this wonderful DIY idea from Vanessa.
I wanted to use a potato to stamp my skull pattern out, but my fon fon ru got upset over wasting a potato, so I ended up buying a rubber stamp block instead. If you want to try this DIY out, be cautioned! It's really annoying carving a pattern on a rubber block without the right tools. You'll be better off with using a vegetable and a knife.
All in all, the project took about an hour to carve and stamp. I let the shirt dry overnight before wearing it/ washing it.
I'm off to spend the day finishing A Clash of Kings. I hope you all are having a great Monday!
