Shirt Upgrades: Fabric and Duct Tape

My method: I purchased some plain t-shirts from amazon, picked a favorite scrap fabric piece, added fusible stabilizer, cut out a heart, and satin stitched it to the shirt.
Total time: 20 minutes
Total cost: $4.20
Total smiles: lots

The husband's method was slightly different:

Duct tape is magic.

1900 hours is 7pm... in case you were wondering

Did you know that you need a visa (not the credit card) to get into Australia? I did not know this. Any way, I went to the airport what I thought was 2 hours early for my flight to AU; when I checked in for my flight the attendant asks me if I have my visa. I looked at her in confusion. She explained that travelers need a visa to get into Australia and remarked how good it was that I was early.
I said, "How long does it take?"
She says, "About 45 minutes."
I said, "Won't I miss my flight?"
She says, "No. Your flight leaves at 7pm; right now it's 2:15."

Niiiiiiiiice. I was thinking my flight left at 4.

So, now I am at the mall food court. I have my visa and over 3 hours till my flight.
