Pretty cool assemblage and I like your color choice.  I didn't know that they ever made a Donkey Kong Country themed Barrel of Monkeys--I know Diddy Kong when I see him!

Great bookmark and quote, but, I gotta be honest, the Strawberry Shortcake girls/clothing are what made me stop and read. Cheesy  Wonderful haul!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Strange Crayola Markers(?) Help on: Today at 10:05:27 AM
This is a public service announcement from the desk of Rainbow Dash, self-appointed defender of the color spectrum:

I did this quick portrait (and, wow, are her eyes crooked), way back in May of 2015, using Crayola's Wonder Color markers and paper.  Over the years, the colors have both faded and diffused through the paper (the yellowish staining), transforming her into a ghostly shadow of her former self.  I didn't leave the illustration in direct sunlight or anything like that, it's only been in the shadows, with other papers, for all that time.  I'd been meaning to scan this for months, and since I had to do a bunch of bills/invoices this morning anyway, and my scattered brain finally remembered, I got it done.  Other than finding the changes interesting, the reason I'm posting this now is that I know many of you are the mothers of small children, so, if you want to save their masterpieces for posterity, Wonder Color obviously isn't the stuff to do it with (although it's fine for just messing around with).   It's possible that some kind of sealer might have prevented this from happening, but, as it's a unique chemical reaction to begin with (the leuco dyes in the markers only work on the coordinating special paper; they leave transparent fluid on anything else), I don't know if that'd make a difference or not.

Very cool way to dress up the planter in a festive manner.  Given the shapes, it kind of gives a conical snail shell vibe too.

So .  . . many . . . balloons!  I love the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who photo stand too.  Super awesome Grinch-themed event!

In the next city over, from where I live, they literally arrest a guy dressed up as the Grinch every year as part of their Christmas festivities!

Lovely little outfit; he's all set to go on a sleigh ride or Christmas caroling!

That is awesome and I can only imagine the anticipation that will go along with tearing open each packet (I would find the temptation to cheat and tear them all open in one day almost irresistible) along with the joy of discovering each new treasure!

This is an awesome pattern that I would love to have....but because of copywrite laws, maker of this scarf had to take it down. Dang it.

With the new movie just hitting the theaters recently, I'm sure the lawyers are out in force!

Do any of y'all SwapDoodle?  It's a free app in Nintendo's eShop (you gotta pay real money if you want to use more than black and red ink though, which is kind of lame) that lets you send handwritten messages and drawings to your friends.  The Nintendo 2DS/3DS' touch screen is pretty small (maybe half the size of an ATC), and the stylus only a so-so drawing implement, but, it's kind of fun.  I've been sending scribbles and messages to a woman in California for the last week or so after first learning about it from her in one of the two 3DS groups that I belong to on Facebook.

My understanding is that Nintendo used to have a SwapNote app too . . . but . . . um . . . adults in Japan were sending children naughty stuff (you could attach photos in that program, which you can't do in SwapDoodle), so they axed that one and replaced it with SwapDoodle.

So, if any of you have a 2DS/3DS, have downloaded the program, and wanna SwapDoodle with me, my friend code is:

0018 6684 9731

(You have to give me your friend code too for it to work, which you can do via PM if you don't want to post it publicly here).
