What I do spend a few dollars on

I still can't figure out how to put which pic where, so I'll start off topic. This is a valentine I made for my friend JJ, out of scraps most of which were 4 to 5 years old. I never throw anything away, bless my heart.

Sometimes I'll buy junk I want just for the fun of it, if it's under a dollar. Below, my Transformer watch for 75 cents, and the fake doorbell shocker for 99 cents. I laughed at the doorbell shocker for one entire day, and still giggle every time I spot it, so it was definitely a worthy purchase.

I mostly use what's on hand and given to me, but when I have a little extra cash, I head to the dollar store on the corner and see what I can find. Today I bought three bottle of nail polish, two packages of hair beads, a pair of earrings, and a bead necklace and earrings. That last will be separated for use in earrings, the pony beads I plan to make some kind of My Aim is True Elvis Costello thing (because the album background is tiny black and white squares, I always refer to this pattern as EC checkerboard), and I use the nail polish to paint frames, charms and whatnot. The big black heart earrings I wanted to actually wear, but they are the kind that make a lot of racket, so I can't. Those jangly earrings drive me mad. So they will be cannibalized for parts too.

Next time, what became of the plastic bead necklace.
