Goodwill Blog Hop

Welcome to GabyCreates
and to the first Goodwill “the power of work” Blog Hop!
What this blog hop is all about.
The first week of May is “the power of work” week for Goodwill.

I hope you landed here from Visiting my friend Dalis.  She is the HOST!
Goodwill has helped thousands of families and gave them the choice to a new beginning.

I visited my local Goodwill just a few days ago for some inspiration to create my project for today, but just could not find what I had in mind (a small Goodwill). I was thinking on finding a Scrabble game to use the tiles on a scrapbook.  What I found instead is this Totally ME! Funky Fashion Tracing Desk.
 The box was a bit broken.  I paid $4.99
 I had to replace the batteries and clean the battery housing (previous batteries had bled).
I almost thought that it was not going to work, but with a little tweaking, it did.
 I colored her with Prismacolor pencils.  I made the mistake of tracing her with a Prismacolor blue instead of a sharpie or a pen that could handle the alcohol based Copic markers.  Additionally she is too big at 7" tall for a card.  I will have to leave it for my grand daughter to play with! I know she will have lots of fun!
