The newest adventure I have decided to embark on is the find of vintage character sheets. This is a very hard thing to do as I know I am not the only one looking for them. The "Holey Grail" right now is "Star Wars". I keep looking to no avail. No, I will not purchase online because I am not willing to pay huge amount of money plus shipping to get it. Yes, I am doing in the old fashioned way. Most of the thrift stores around her have seen me more than a few times. Now I will say I have found two character sheets so far. One was a Kermit the Frog sheet circa "1980" and a TMNT sheet circa "1988". Both where in fabulous condition. The funny thing about the TMNT sheet was that a lady was contemplating it as I came down the isle. She glanced away for a brief second. and I swiped it. Rule of thumb in the thrifting world is if you are looking at something you better pick it up. If you don't pick it up then someone else is bound to snatch it. I have learned this very quickly. I was so excited to get these home and wash them that I flew out of the store, after paying of course. As far as finding the "Star Wars", I know I will. Though I do not like it it is for my sister. When I finally do get this highly sought after sheet it will become a scrub top.
So tonight as I cook my fabulous home made chicken noodle soup I will contemplate my next project. I am very excited to get started on another one. However I do have some on my to do list. I am at this moment thinking of ways to put NB tour shirts together to make a messenger bag. This bag has to be good which is why I have not started it yet. Planning is key when I only don't want to make any mistakes. Yes, I do take my projects seriously. Well most times anyway.
