Love the hoopla, and everything else!
*surreptitiously adds my name to alway's list*
Thanks, guys! The keyboard button covers were fiddly. No craft store in town carried the blanks, so I ordered a bag 0f 100 from Fire Mountain Gems for about $15.00. I used pliers to break off the sticky out bit. I bought the cheap 2 part resin from the craft store, the stuff that turns white when it sets up. Plus, that's the kind that sets up *fast*.  Like, sets up in 10 minutes fast. I filled the space in back of the keys with resin to get a level surface, because there's not enough surface area to glue on the button covers otherwise. I tried just setting some in the resin while it was still liquid, but it didn't always hold. They tended to pop off when I did that, so I used E6000 to glue the metal button covers to the filled keys. I  used maybe a quarter of the resin to make 100? Maybe a bit more. But I'll use the rest of the resin on other projects.
It turned out to be a bigger project than I thought! Not the simple little thing I thought it would be. If I'd known it would be this involved, I probably wouldn't have made them.
I have found some mice have all over circuit board with a cutout, and some barely have any in them-it's all luck. I cut out stiff paper for the back, and used a small amount of velcro so it could be opened to change the picture, and made a small stand to hold it up.

I love that bush embroidery, the pink and white afghan and the unicorn pillow!

I'm finally done with the rather large hoop I was working on for the Dia De Los Muertos swap. It's done with needle punch.



Next to a can of soup for size reference
