...to alter???

Yakking with Kelley tonight and I said "tennis ball" she said "show me some inspiration" but my point was that I was trying to come up with something not previously alter-popular. So she said "toilet brush"(new) an idea which I love and then I said "toothpick"...

Engage your imaginations; What is the oddest/most unusual thing you can think of to alter? Must be readily available and able to ship.

condom!!!

We should alter these and the hostess could take pics and we could post them on YouTube as a slide show to remind everyone to engage in safe sex, if they are not familiar with their partners. Then it would go viral , and we would all be invited to appear on Good Morning America to share our happy mail. We would become famous, and then write books , and soon become rich...

No way Barbara, I say take em out, blow them up and have fun with them, like a balloon party, but for a good causeLOL

PS. your body is just fine , and an expression of who you are, simply marvelous.

PPS. Now I wonder what would happen if you sprayed it with acrylic after it was blown up. Would it hold it's shape if you sealed the opening after you tied it with a knot? Could you place something inside first to go along with a theme?

I think I should make one and send it to COB.

Hey Cob!!!!! What style would you like? Should I try steampunk and put some coordinated images and findings inside? Maybe it could be the start of a cool hot air balloon.

Come on Cob. I dare you to hostess this.Flapper

TAP TAP TAP, TAPPING . . .

If not cob, maybe Barbara would do this as a Community Service.

The name of the swap could be , to quote wonder woman, "NO GLOVE, NO LOVE"

The dog is wonderful, made me smile, and the condom fashion is amazing. Now, I am just too curious and need to check out the tampon site. This has become a really fun topic on the forum for a usually business as usual slow Saturday.Laugh

You are a walking plethora for all things alterable!!!LOL Laugh Tongue Razz Wink Wub

I posted this once before, but can't resist. One of my kindergarters came to school in Elgin ,Illinois, and he was asked to visit the principal. I was invited as well and was so surprised to see he had a tampon tied into each belt loop. I asked him to tell me about his belt, and he proudly shouted out "I'M ROY ROGERS AND DEMS ARE MY BULLETS!!!"

We had such a chuckle. I explained to him, that it was a school rule , that all cowboys check in their bullets during the day and pick them up after school. His Mom made sure he never brought his bullets to school again.

Maybe that man is my former kindergartner, all grown up.Laugh

well, I can't throw anything away now since discovering pinterest without first thinking if it could have new life as something else. But I am not a horder so it will usually get tossed and then I regret when I see something and remember I just threw away what could be used to make it.

It's amazing what all can be made from old wood crates
