Let's Hear it for the Boys!


There is a contest over at I am Momma Hear Me Roar and I am entering!

The rules are simple, sometime in the month of March, design a top for a boy.


Well, little boys have a special place in my heart! I have one pretty cool one of my own.
And in case you haven't noticed, making shirts is one of my new favorite pastimes!
SOOOOOO the contest seemed like a natural.

Does everyone remember the story about the Toomer's Trees in Auburn, Alabama?
The CRAZY bama fan deliberatly poisoned the beautiful old Toomer's Oaks with the intention of KILLING THEM!


I am an Auburn Alum and LOVE LOVE LOVE my school so I was pretty upset about it! I think it hit me like a ton of bricks how very special things like old trees and traditions really are! I definitely became a tree hugger! I literally wanted to go hug those old trees as soon as I heard the news.
The idea for the shirt that I am entering blossomed during that time, but I have not had a chance to put it together.



My little model was a little shy at first!


But he warmed up pretty quickly!



It might not be the toughest little guy shirt that will be in the contest, but it definitely delivers a message that is dear to my family and my little tiger!


My Little Tree Hugger!

Very cute shirt ... I love the colors you chose.

{and who poisons trees?? The same thing happened years ago to a famous tree in Austin, Texas. People are nuts.}

It's adorable!

In a nearby canyon to where I went to college was the oldest tree in North America... until someone went and cut it down. People stink sometimes. Hug those trees! :)
