The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Home Improvement Monkeys Ride Again

They're back.

Or, they will be soon. When I origianlly posted this picture back in 2006 or 2007, I had several inquires about getting this on a t-shirt. I had a lot of trouble with getting images scanned, uploaded, etc to Cafe Press, so I've taken the means of production into my own hands to do it myself. I'm working-up this image to make a silkscreen print. I've never done this before, so I have no idea hard it will be to get this right. It's the friggin' story of my life.

Anyhow, if any of you wonderful readers out there are still interested, let me know. There is no better incentive than an audience. As soon as I have a working image, I'll post it here.

Just take the image to a t-shirt place, for crying out loud.

I'll totally buy one.

"...so I've taken the means of production into my own hands to do it myself."

So, you couldn't get CafePress to work, so instead of getting technical help, you have decided to begin silk screening yourself. Clearly the Devil Queen didn't teach you much about doing things the hard way.

That being said, I would be interested in purchasing a t-shirt, if only for the blogs its gonna generate when you embark on this little do-it-yourself project.

Thanks everyone! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you all. I had a two-day long cluster fuck with the VW.

Ranty, I may have to. We'll see.

Anonymous, I have a Cafe Press store with some t-shirts, etc on it. The problem I've had is getting high quality PNG files. The first Voodoo Contracting T-shirt I made with Cafe Press came out brown instead of purple. I spent something like 10-12 with a free demo of Photoshop to get it to look right. If I have to spend that might time working on a picture, I'd rather do it by hand than on a computer.

That being said, the purple-to-brown fiasco could all be user error.

renovationtherapy, thank you for the offer. Please see above. But, thank you for this very generous offer.

Circa bellum, I'll shot you an email in a few days. Thanks!

E-dub, cool! Hopefully, I'll have them soon.
