Johnny and Prince Тёма a few weeks ago getting ready for the big move to their new home.
So back in mid-March we launched the “Happy Housewarming to Johnny & Тёма” fan project, and I’m thrilled to announce that our Jersey boys received our gifts last week! Here’s what we sent:
(2) Matching “Jersey Strong” T-shirts for puppy and papa, just for fun, designed by Jenn Kittler (click for larger view):
A New Jerseyian herself, Jenn explains: “It’s kind of an inside Jersey joke. We use the Garden State Parkway to judge locations of things. So, you tell someone where something is and they ask, ‘What exit is that?’ So this is based on that, with the design showing the exit of Johnny’s favorite mall.”
(3) A “Happy Housewarming!” card with all contributors’ names and lovely messages to Johnny; and
(4) A bonus gift card for Johnny to use to purchase whatever he and Тёма need for their new home, since, as always, contributions far exceeded the planned costs. Because his fans are just that awesome. ♥
Johnny tweeted his thanks to us Friday morning:
Thank you to my many fans who participated in the housewarming gift for me & Тёма! You guys are so amazing! We love our "Jersey Strong" Ts!

And may I also say a big thank you again to all who participated in the project! Your thoughtfulness and generosity is so inspiring and very much appreciated!
The Prince, lord of all he surveys—including Johnny—makes himself at home on the balcony of his new digs.
