Because I value your input, and the fact you are participating in swap, I could use opinions, please:

I've been granted approval for another swap, this one being a color-themed one. My question is, which do you think would go over better: a 2.5" candy colored them or a 5" charm colored theme?

Just curious, as I use both

I'd vote 5" too, have enough candies at the moment and if I'd run out, can always cut 5" up for more.

HI Sunrise....you need to checking your settings when you go to the print page. On my computer after I push print a list of .....fill the page, actual size or pick a %. This is where you need to do an adjustment.

scorpion!!!!!!! YIKES. I'm sticking to the Michigan State Insect.....Mosquitoes. QUOTE=SheriR;7821789]My thoughts exactly.

I went to check and see if it might be stuck in the dress I'd been wearing Sunday evening. It was hanging to dry on the shower rod in the small bathroom because I'd chosen THAT night to toss it in the wash. I found a scorpion instead. :O (no needle yet...)[/QUOTE]

This is so Cool! I have not heard of this either. Now I want to find where Moonrise is traveling. One of the local school districts did something like this. The had every student in each of the elementary school paint a rock. Then laid them around the school entrance in a path. Told the kids that each stone is different just like you are but look how they make a path by working together. Thought that was really cool also.

I gonna get some paints and make some rocks. Maybe I will start to leave my own. Remember that copy someones idea is the greatest form of flattery . (Or I just can't come up with these great ideas on my own)

I'm going to leave a rock whenever we stop, hoping it'll bring a smile to the person who finds it. I'd never heard of it before, but DH found a painted rock awhile back when we were camping, and it turns out that it's a game of sorts. The finder can pass the rock along to someone else, or they can keep it. I just thought it would be fun. Here's a pic of some of my favorites. Keep in mind that I'm a better quilter than a painter! LOL! (That black, gray, and white mandala rock in the center is mine. I actually liked how it turned out, and now I don't wanna give it up! hee hee)

Edit: I forgot to mention: The backs of the rocks have words on them like inspire, smile, relax, breathe, luck, make a wish, etc.)
