My Thong...

Today I will be working on my "thong." Here’s a picture of the items I received in my envelope: wires, ball chain, two wooden circles, a gold embellishment, resistors, a tag and some mica.
A little history...a few years ago I started a challenge called, "Mystery Double Dog Dare" (MDDD) where I mailed those willing to take the challenge, a mystery object that they had to make something out of. The item I sent everyone was a four slot microscope slide holder. In all of our joking around, somehow the "mystery object" I mailed everyone ended up being referred to as a "thong"–and the nickname has stuck ever since. All the "thong" entries I received were very creative.

This month, Leah is hosting the MDDD at ACP, and this is the "thong" she sent everyone. So now I have to create something from all, some or just one of these items. We can do anything we want to this it, cut it, slice it, dice it, rearrange it, turn it inside out, ink it, whatever....we get free reign.

After we alter the thong, we send a picture back to the hostess and she anonymously posts everyone’s entries. Everyone then tries to guess who made which thong...and there are various prizes for those with the most correct guesses, least correct guesses, etc. Very challenging but fun!

So that’s one of the things I’ll be working on today...and maybe something else as stay tuned :)
