Any pictures by chance? :D


Gosh, I wish! We're leaving on vacation in less than a week and the hubs decided that we needed to put the project off until we get back. But as soon as we get it worked out, I will definitely post some pics!

Fixed one tutu yesterday and I'm working on making another one today.

Design for awards I'll be handing out to people on the playa. Have a few others on my mind, Best Art Car, Tan in the Land, Hooper, Poi Spinner, Dancer, DJ or Band, Body Paint,.....
Any other ideas?

kaicrown, Great idea and beautiful. Are they paper or plastic? Laminated? How big? Hanging from lanyards or necklaces? Stickers?

I hope you're making a few of each cause you'll never be able to decide or to find the winner later.

Oh yeah, I'll be making a bunch of each. Haven't really decided what medium to print them on. Lanyards sounds like a good idea.

Savannah, Those are great suggestions. Getting awards anywhere, for anything brightens up the day.

Geospyder, you would like this deal I got for a battery powered 80 led light string for $1.99! http://www.ebay.com/soc/itm/160903214059 Usually they are not that cheap...and I actually think it's a mistake. :shock:

Thanks for the head's up - but I already ordered the one from Amazon. Basically it was free since I had earned some gift cards via some surveys I've done. I'll be heading to your state later this morning. My granddaughter is graduating high school this evening in Stockton.

Super cool, kaicrown!


. . . Yesterday I picked up a cheap 3-drawer bathroom organizer for my tent. I've used a wooden tv tray as a bedside table (cot-side table?) for a few years now, but its chief benefits have been that it holds anything off the floor at all, & that my wastebasket fits under it (which is cool, but not really a must). However, the tv tray's relatively small surface quickly becomes the depository for not just sanitizer & lantern, but Burner necklaces and saline, and a pump bottle of lotion, which is tall and gets knocked on the floor, etc, etc. Piles of stuff. Festive, but not very relaxing. :lol:

So I'm going to pack this 3-drawer thing the way I want to use it on-playa, with shoeboxes inside to help keep organized (lidded for travel, bottles laid down on top, bagged). Drawers taped shut with packing tape. When I arrive, I'll pop the lids off the shoeboxes so I can stand various bottles up inside the top drawer, do some momentary rearranging, and boom.

I asked the wife if she would take a ride with me as far as Denver (where my oldest daughter resides) on my way to BM at the end of August and she didn't throw a shoe or anything like that.


I'll officially ask for the time off from work next week and then start taking inventory of my gear (I sat out last year) and planning in earnest.

Still my attendance depends on the situation with my sick Buddy.
