I've thought of things to use, then looked at the list and realized," Hey! That also covers number _!" ( Which is kind of nice, actually)

I noticed that too. I'm a little confused on a couple. Like, one says polka dots, and the other says polka dot pajamas. Do they count as two things off the list if you make polka dot pjs or just one?

I'm making a spread sheet listing each of the items so I can keep track their number and what I am doing with each of them.  I'm already getting confused and I haven't even started to make anything yet! I just have SOOOOOOO many ideas! I don't want them to blend and in the end I end up missing something because I wasn't organized!

Ya.....I'm a little type A and ADHD.  Embarrassed

Now.....is a mermaid a mammal or a fish? I think THAT is the big question of the day!

Has anyone else had the following thought/realization: If you use #91 (The Eiffel Tower), you automatically cover #63 (Something that is either much smaller or much larger than it is in reality).

Unless... someone is somehow sending their partner a life-sized version of the Eiffel Tower?! Now that would be interesting...

I'm sure there are other things on the list that have the same "Two birds with one stone" factor (like, 14 -- a pin-up girl -- also probably covers 63) but this one strikes me as the funniest.

Gingerquilts -- hope you've got a big backyard! Life-sized Eiffel Tower coming your way! Hee hee.

I'll try to run that by the hubby.  We may need to knock down the garage . . .

Totally worth it, right? Wink

Here's what the internet has to say:

tulle - This is a fine mesh used for bridal veils, and sometimes in wedding gowns. Tulle is either made from nylon, silk or rayon (artificial silk).

tyvek - A versatile material developed by DuPont that combines some of the properties of paper, film and cloth. Arts and craft artists, including altered book artists, sometimes use Tyvek in their work. [Basically, it's the stuff that Priority mail envelopes are made of -- not the carboard ones, but those ones that feel like indestructable plastic]

Tyvek can also be found in construction, where it is used as a vapor barrier to keep houses from leaking through the walls.

As to questions where things overlap, like soft and soft and curly, or polka dots and polka dot pajamas as items where the second item can also count for the first, but could be something different. We didn't want to eliminate either the more general or the more specific item, because they could be used in very different ways. So, you could make a pillow and it would be soft, but not soft and curly, or you could make a doll with curly hair and the doll's hair would be soft and curly. Really, use your best judgement and like in any scavenger hunt remember that you need to justify your items [in the list that you will make.] If the justification is totally out there [like, this rock is wiggly, so it is "soft and curly"] Kaesea and I will make a ruling on whether or not it counts towards the prizes or not.

If my biology classes haven't failed me, I believe that mermaids would be considered mammals due to thier lovely flowing locks. Cheesy

I was reading somewhere someone had a shop called La Sirena Gorda. The Fat Mermaid. LOL!

(yep, I passed biology, but failed spelling. D'oh)
