I need some suggestions

I finally settled on a duvet for my bed and it came on Friday. Now I am just waiting for the new comforter to go in it. The only thing I need to figure out now is what kind of sheets I should get. Originally I wanted to dip dyed stripes but I'm not exactly sure how it will look with my duvet cover. 

Here are some pictures of my new duvet cover. I got it on sale from Urban Outfitters

and here is what I was thinking of in terms of the dip dyed sheets except in reverse, with the blue stripes being skinnier and the white stripes being wider. 
I'm not sure if this idea works anymore but I do want a pattern of some sort. If anyone has any ideas feel free to share.

Holy snow

I got up this morning wondering how much snow we got. So I took a quick peak out the front window. It looked like a lot of snow but not too bad. It wasn't until my roommate went outside and told me to come out that I realized that the other side of the street was a completely different story. 

Heres some pictures from our balcony of the one side of the street that got all of the snow.

You can see how the other side doesn't look nearly as bad. I was going to go to a few places today but the buses are shut down for the day, so I guess thats not happening.

Well the Super Bowl is this weekend and I was planning on making myself a Packer shirt. My stepmom got me one so I no longer needed it. However my friend Britt was without and I still wanted to give it a try. I just bought a plain shirt at walmart in the mens department and removed the pocket. Here are some pics of the shirt before and after I altered it. I painted the helmet on with fabric paint. 

I took in the sides of the shirt and turned the crew neck into a V-neck. 
Can't wait for Sunday. 

Maybe I'll post a picture of Britt modeling the shirt later. 

Im pretty pleased with the end result
