I just wanted to share my latest "picture glossaries" for my latest mass installment of I-Spy bags.  It's almost easier making them en masse.  Distributing items into Dixie bowls was like an assembly line.  I photographed the contents last night.  I do need some work on my camera angle, and I need to find a better backdrop than a greasy pizza box.  I'm a little upset how washed out the white objects were...but oh, well!

I resized each pic to be 3x5, laminated it onto an index card, on the back of which was a typed list of contents (for the literate set).

Some items include flat marbles (fish tank style), poker-style chips, buttons, mini-erasers, wedding and baby shower items (dollar store, yo!), foam "beads" (ibid), plastic animals (target dollar section, dollar store), and transportation-themed beads (Jo-Ann "kid's crafts" section) puzzle pieces.  If I were truly doing this in a mass scale, I'd order a bunch of crap from Oriental Trading company.  As it is, I don't want to be stuck with a gross (144!) mini-erasers, and I don't think DH would take too kindly to it either!   Grin

I'll post later with the finished products -- all seven!!
