When my friend Madeleine introduced me to freezer-paper stenciling years ago, she had no idea she empowered me with an endless supply extra-nerdy handmade gifts. Below, a slideshow beginning with the “devolving” Kurt Vonnegut stencil for a t-shirt I made yesterday for my brother-in-law as a belated-Christmas and super early birthday present. I’m also well known in my family for my Levi-Civita, Euler, UCONN and Chaac shirts. Unfortunately, not all of my designs are winners. Grisha politely declined when I wanted to make him a shirt called “Honeymoon indecision 2012, popsicle edition.” And one shirt I made for my brother featuring Stravinsky is commonly mistaken as Hitler. The stencils I used (minus Stravinsky) are below in case you’re ever inspired to make one.

    Ha! Nice ones, Ab. I once made a Charlie Chaplin stencil that resembled Hitler. Decided to put the kabosh on that one.

    Actually just unearthed a roll of Freezer Paper while rearranging my room in CT.. among other treasures.

    Read the “Hindsight Bride” blog spot. You are all up in the blogosphere..!!

      P.S. Does Grisha know any ‘Dzamko’s’ in Bethel? V. possible that I misspelt that name..

        He said yes, but not in the biblical or very-close-to-them sense.
