Now, when you meet Shannon for the first time, you would never guess that she was a biker chick... And, well, she wasn't when I met her. But she has found a man that has really made her very happy, and he happens to enjoy riding a motorcycle. In fact, he belongs to a biker club known as JABG. Jim (the lucky man's name) has been able to share his love of the open road with Shannon, and she seems to really love it.
When she told everyone that she would be going to Sturgis for the biker rally, Shannon's mom, Cree, asked if I would help her with a surprise for Shannon. She wanted to give her something special for her trip. We put our heads together and came up with some design ideas for fashionable biker chick wear using thin strap tank tops.
The first tank top stencil design I drafted featured her destination, Sturgis. Our goal was to make her the envy of all the biker chicks there.
The second tank top stencil that was drafted was designed to make her an official member of the JABG.
The final tank top stencil drafted featured Shannon's childhood nickname (which I like to use even now). I figured it's better for a biker to have a nickname, no?
When Cree and I presented the tank tops to Shannon, she was so surprised and happy. (Yay!) I'm glad she'll be sporting my unique biker chick fashions at the rally. A girl has to look good while kicking @ss and taking names, right?
If you'd like to follow Shannon on her adventure, take a sneak peak of her travel blog here. I'm sure there are going to be some interesting tales for her to share. I hope she has a fantastic trip and comes home safely... maybe even with a tattoo or two. (Just kidding, Cree.)
