BënThere shirts: DIY T-shirt kits and a Giveaway

Happy Friday everyone! Adam and the kids just left for North Carolina to visit family. I am photographing a wedding tomorrow, which means I couldn't join them (and I was going to get a massage so I've basically never been more bummed). However, so far today I took a nap, an uninterrupted shower, and I read my Bible and a few pages of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, so I'm not exactly complaining.

Anyways, I'm really excited about today's post. You see, we have these friends who work at Camp Grace (which y'all already know all about), and Mrs. Robinson is pretty amazing. Her and her husband print all our amazing Anteater jerseys and t-shirts etc. She is a mom of seven children, she runs marathons and homeschools, and all of her children are beautifully behaved. In face, I might dislike her except that she's so kind and easygoing and fun! Anyways, her and another mom came up with the concept for BenThereShirts. I'll let their own words tell the story:
BënThere shirts was started by two moms in the spring of 2013. As they drove home from a grocery store outing they reminisced about passed journeys and travel destinations. A concept began to develop, the concept of wearing your own experiences on a shirt. Little did they know, their journey was just beginning. Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Fry shared their idea with their husbands, children (13 between the two of them), and friends. The consensus, develop a creative clothing line that lets you tell your story. With their washing machines in full gear, they tested numerous fabrics, materials, and color combinations, determined to deliver a high quality product that would be an experience on its own. BënThere shirts is that product. Enjoy your experience and we look forward to seeing you "share your story".

The DIY t-shirt kit comes beautifully packaged and includes rhinestones and easy-to-follow instructions for making your t-shirt your own. Jayci helped me with mine, and loved every minute. Her only request was "MORE BEAUTIFUL CRYSTALS MOM!" The t-shirt is easy to put together and you can use the crystals to illustrate the states you've been to and where you live, really however you want! My shirt is currently in the dirty laundry pile (which I should probably tackle this weekend, but it is just. so. ginormous.), but here's a picture from their facebook page of the finished product.
Y'all are extra lucky because I have one BënThere shirt kit to giveaway to one of you today. Enter below and happy Friday! And be sure to visit BënThere shirts website and facebook page.

  3. What a cute idea. We are hoping to travel when our kids are a little older to different states and this would be the perfect t-shirt. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is a great idea! I've tried keeping track on maps before, but this is "way cooler".

  5. I think that might be the coolest shirt I have ever seen.
    : )
    I like any friend that is named Mrs. Robinson. That automatically makes her cool.

    Have fun shooting tomorrow. I am shooting a wedding in the morning also. I am pretty excited. Morning wedding equals no stress, right? : ) I am almost sure of it.

  6. OH my goodness the shirt. LOVE!!!

  7. Great concept. I would love a world map as well!
