Geek alert!

As a child, I was ever so slightly (hahaha, ever so slightly, she says!) addicted to my Gameboy. I told you about that before. What I didn’t say back then, is that my addiction wasn’t limited to that Gameboy. Hypothetically, for instance, it might just have happened that I told my friends while out and about that I really had to go home and get some sleep. While in fact, and this is still very hypothetical, I went home to play Sonic Heroes on my PS2 until the early morning hours.

So when I was about to tackle some more onesies, I thought, let’s get those old heroes involved.

So Sonic is there.

And Spyro.

And Mario and Luigi, of course.

And to limit the geekiness a tiny bit, I also made another Lada lover, so my little boy can go hit the town with his uncle.

And what have we learned?

  • Transfer paper isn’t that ideal for onesies, the drawings do crack pretty easily. But of course you can also call that a vintage look.
  • If you  don’t have any baking paper lying around(and you are lazy as me), don’t just use the paper wrapping around the chocolate to iron your drawing on. You may just transfer the glue as well and make spots that can’t be removed anymore. And then you have to hide that fact by placing another onesie over it.

So. Anyone else suffering from hypothetical addictions?

Lada Lover

Meet Boris.
Lada lover
 For the Jeremy Clarksons among you: a Lada Vaz 2101, 1200s, built in 1985. For the laymen: an old soviet car in mint condition.
Lada lover
My brother bought this car earlier this year, and he absolutely loves it. And he’s not the only one. Everywhere you go, there’s always someone who wants to have a chat about it, or who has a loving memory about it. A real ice breaker.
Lada lover
My brother considers this car a bit as his child. Or his twin brother, since he was built in 1985 as well. The way he looks at it, or talks about her, I’d call it real love. And you should tell everyone in the world about your real love.

So I went to Hema and bought 2 grey t-shirts and some transfer paper. I asked hubby nicely whether he had an idea about what we could do with the Lada logo. Luckily he understood and got going immediately. And one p(r)int and hot iron later, we ended up with this:

A big logo and a small one, so my brother can still decide how big his Lada love is.
Both t-shirts ended up under the Christmas tree. And somewhat later on facebook, in the post “Best Christmas present ever”. Mission accomplished, I’d daresay.

I still have one logo left, its size in between the other 2. Maybe I should iron it on a pair of boxers…
