Going to have to do some serious planning to prepare for this project.  Can't wait to see what I come up with.   Grin

Just went to dollar tree in VA and spent some money, but only $4 as a base for psycho, and not sure I will end up using the item, but it has such potential and not something everyone would use.

I am at my parents and they are looking great. Will be home tomorrow to work on gibbous and dollar. Start a new schedule next week. Just wanted to check in.

I picked up (hopefully) all my supplies today! I got a few ideas which I think will be pretty fun. I picked up two items I don't think I'm going to end up using (found a better method for what I planned on doing with them), so I may go back and exchange them. Smiley

Think I'll try a mock-up of one item tonight to make sure it turns out!

 Smiley  Sejimara have been partners in two previous swaps, so you'd think that I'd have all her likes/dislikes down pat.  However, I don't, and I sent her a PM with a ton of questions on it last night....can't get started till she answers me back....

*Sejimara....YOOOO-HOOOO-are you out there?HuhHuh* Cool

 Cry  Sejimara "found" me...unfortunately, my PM did not "find" her!  It is off somewhere in cyberspace.  I had to work my one remaining brain cell real hard to remember all the questions I had asked her.  And then I saved the PM to my outbox.  Tongue

I went to the Dollar Store yesterday... this is going to be way harder than I thought  Shocked I found a couple items to make something my partner requested, but I have to go back once I have a better game plan Cheesy

 Wink  C'mon guys...you need to look past what the item is intended for at the dollar store, and at what you can do to it to make it special!  (Also, Dollar Tree is hit or miss, sometimes you have better luck at the "independent" dollar stores, they carry different types of things.)

i like the idea of decorating as well as repurposing- making cheap and tacky look clean and sophisticated, if i can do it!
