Someone mentioned musk sticks in this thread, that's why I asked. Smiley But now I'm intrigued... I hope I get paired with an Aussie!

I wish I had an action shot of this... it looks SO COOL when I walk. All the little pieces sort of swish around, up and down. Love it.

Depending on the when, I'd be interested. And I'm not American, so that might help. I'm from Canada. I'll have to think about what to send, but off the top of my head... elk jerky, Labello lip balm (SOOO GOOD), Excel gum (apparently something in it isn't quite legal in the States... it's super-strong gum)... I could send a mix CD of Canadian rock... oooh, I could make an inukshuk! Good times!

Excel gum??? iv never heard of it.  and you say its not legal? hmm...thats something id be interested in  Grin 
but why is it not legal in the states?

I'm not sure. I guess there's something in it that your food and drug admin hasn't approved, something like that. Everyone I know has chewed it and we're all still kicking, so...    Smiley

This could be very cool. I'll think about it and decide when the dates are posted.

This sounds like fun, but I'd need to know the deadline before committing fully.

Hi all!

So I've been a Barenaked Ladies fan for ages (or at least I WAS, until this recent adult contemporary transformation...ic k). I ALWAYS buy t-shirts when I go to their concerts, but... I never wear them. I know this, and yet I still buy them. Why? Who knows! But the fact remains, I had a drawer full of 'em, and they rarely sak teh light of day. The solution? Make them into a skirt! I don't have the BEST pictures of them, but you'll get the idea.

Basically, I cut them into strips... wider ones around the graphics, and then narrow ones from the plain t-shirt portion. I made them all different lengths, and attached them to a simple waitband I made from the waistband of an old sweater with an elastic sewn inside. Kinda ghetto, but it worked fabulously. At least, I think so.

P.S. I just spent the last 20 minutes trying to find a picture of myself wearing it in Paris, where it went over very well. Wink No luck, though.

I bought a plain old knee-length blue skirt at Value Village AGES ago, and AGES ago I did a little work on it. I'm finally getting around to posting now because I'm feeling productive.

Basically, I cut some slits in the sides and hemmed 'em up nicely, trimmed it with some leftover black crinky fabric I had cut from an old brromstick skirt, and painted a little design on it.



Here's a close-up on the design...



I don't wear it all that often, but I thought it turned out pretty well. I should really do more things like that... I like to paint, but really don't haev the wall space to do much on canvas any more.
