Day 3 : A little bit of creativiTEE

Yesterday I shared my top 5 reasons why I thrift, one of which was CREATIVITY.  Today I though I would showcase some very creative ideas that all feature the same medium…t-shirts.


Why tees, you ask?  Because they are a thrift store staple…overly abundant, usually cheap, come in a variety of colors, durable and non-fraying, and as you will see, very versatile!  Not only that but I am willing to bet that every house has an extra tee or two that could use a facelift or repurposing.  My goal isn’t to encourage you to run out any buy every t-shirt in sight.  Oh, no.  I just wanted to share how something so simple can turn into something special!
