Seems a bit large, or does it wrap around a couple of times?

I totally see the kitten! Purr Purr Purr! :wink:

I have that skirt in the similar colors as the picture and it came with a matching hooded wrap sleeveless shirt. It is one of my favorite outfits for burns or just when I feel like looking fancy while hooping. It is awesome/convenient that it just wraps around whatever you are wearing. :D

Sample of the first batch of gifting pendants for Burning Man. This year there is an actual pinch of Playa dust mixed in the clay for each pendant.

My wife is the crafty one. She chose beige and tan to represent the Playa and the swirls to represent a dust storm.

TTG .. Love the skirt. I may have to think about adding something similar to my TO DO list for next year.

Cool Pendants Geospyder. Your wife made an excellent choice for the colors, and the idea of the swirls is fabulous.

I was out and about today, and ended up getting a big Canada flag and a cheap red cowboy hat with a white maple leaf on it. Their current purpose is for the Canada Day celebrations in July, but then they go right into my BM bins.

Purchased a sippy cup with lid and handle that doubles as a straw.

This was the first batch where the colors were not what we wanted - too dark. I "saved" them by adding some glow in the dark paint where you couldn't make out the man. You can definitely see him under Black Light.

I will keep the search up for an alternative.
Ooohh--can you share your source? I've been looking at all kinds of options for lighting up our bikes, but haven't settled on anything. I'd love to see what you got, 'specially if it's discounted!

Fishy, can't wait to see the fabric!

Terrific dome, MD!

TG, are those glue spots on the bike? The desert tends to eat such things, I'd go glue gun. LOL or rivets.

I bet if you did a full tensioned wrap around the bars instead of a half wrap then the sticky buttons could be left out. Inner tube cut in to a long length would probably work awesome but not such a decorative look. More urban survivalist.

Ooh, that would be a terrific look! Plus the rubber would have enough clinginess to stay put on the bars.

You know how to cut a truck inner tube in to a long piece by cutting a spiral around the tube right?

Oh and today my $5 corset from eBay came In the the mail, and it was of pretty decent quality considering the price! I can't wait to paint it!
WOW, a $5 corset? Got a photo of that? BARGAIN!!!
Hey Emily,
Argh! That's supposed to be $15. Still really cheap, but not $5. I have seen some even cheaper on ebay though. I get pretty much all my stuff on Ebay or craigslist, unless i see a clearance sell at a store. Ill post pictures as soon as I'm done decorating it.

I GOT MY BIKE YESTERDAY!! A BEACH CRUISER! I'm so excited. It came with a u-lock for only $55! The guy selling just graduated and was leaving to go home to Germany with in the hour. IT needs a new chain, but the lock alone was worth $20.

Investigated flight options.

Changed my shipping address to where I'll be in June. I'm really glad they require a signature (at least in the US) to receive the ticket in the mail.
