    Your cart is lovely! :)

    I can’t justify the price so it isn’t to be. I loaded the cart and then thought about whether or not it was worth the explaining I would have to do to the boss-man and decided I would rather be able to quit my job earlier than pocket a few pretty pieces of plastic. :) I can’t wait to see what you do with yours, though!

    Who knew plastic could be so enticing? Maybe you could skinny-down your cart a bit and try out a few?

    I wish I could afford some of these too, Becky! I love Ali’s earrings. I have some of the new Czech glass on the way with my egg hunting prizes. Now I am locked up in beader’s prison for the foreseeable future. ;)

    Justification for plastic costing so much is each tiny flower is handpainted….yea I cant do it either. Sigh…

    I am thinking there has to be a way to rig an old “thingmaker” to melt plastic, add random dye droplets as it hardens, and turn out the perfect flowers. No? crap! (who remembers Thingmakers?)

    Thingmaker??? Don’t remember that. Do remember melting plastic bottles at bonfires to.hear them go “whoop whoop whoop”.

    Never tried it but my best friend used to put lit firecrackers under empty tin cans and watch them launch. I was only a spectator, I swear. :) Thingmaker was I believe a Mattel toy that cooked liquid plastic/rubber into hardened wiggly shapes. You poured colored plastic into molds for flowers, bugs, dinosaurs, you name it. Some of the finished pieces even had connectors so you could put together 3-D flower, bugs, dinosaurs. :)

    Eewww…I wasn’t into that. Barbie dolls, Matchbox cars, drawing(designing paper dolls/clothes) were my things.

    I had one of those plastic-hardening toys, made Creepy Crawlers! Wish I still had the metal templates….
    Becky, my dad did the same thing w/firecrackers.

    Lois D says:

    Oh my GOODNESS, Becky – put me in the’ way back machine’!! I think I still have my old Thing Maker!!!!! I’ll have to dig through a few (very) old boxes of ‘stuff’ I still have from eons ago :)
    Maybe I’ll experiment if I find the plates…:)

    Lois–I would buy that from you if you sell… :)
