Lets see how many different ways I can present the term “Tag Surfing” before repeating myself…

http://frankierobertson.wordpress.com had a button for http://www.blogsurfer.us and I signed up too. More free publicity can’t hurt. Click my blogsurfer button!
It lists blogs every few seconds and every time you click, my blog goes to the top.
I also have to mention the cool trick I learned that I have been using like crazy. When you accidentally close a tab in Internet Explorer that you regret, push CTRL, ALT, T and it will pop back up again! Righteous!
This is a bag I made for the first person to post a review on Amazon for me! (Thanks again Allison!) The iron-on transfer didn’t work perfectly on canvas. I’m going to try to fill in the little gaps in the design and that should help. Those iron-on transfers aren’t as simple as the directions would lead you to believe.
I Heart My SaSa Tee
The Tee worked much better and cleaner. It seems this type of transfer was made for cotton tees. This was my alternate idea for the bags but my reviewer wanted the tote anyway.
Last is a bookmark I made with white ribbon and one of the test bits I printed to fill up the transfer sheet. It transferred fine but it affected the shape of the ribbon. I think I would like it better with bigger text and a vertical design. I will mess around with that later because this thing is a pain in the butt and took several hours. I think I bent my ironing board too.
