Coolest thing I've seen in a while.

How talented these KIDS are! Whew. http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/s ... toViewer=1

Who'd have thought? Duct tape. I know they have this competition every year now. Hope the link works. Be sure and see the slide show by clicking the right arrow next to the winning couple to see all 10.

(And yes, it's 3:37 in the stupid A.M.! Give me another hour and a half and I'll probably go back to sleep. :roll: Par for the course, sadly............ :( )

Oh Lennie, I know your pain!! Went to bed at my usual time last night, 11 pm as the news was coming on. DH set the sleep timer for 30 minutes to shut the TV off when the news was over. Weeelllllll, at 1:30 after tossing and turning for 2 hours, I decided to get up. I saw the Duct Tape Prom winners on Yahoo, read all the un-read posts on here, and searched the on-line catalog for our local library for the books I want to read before I go back to school(I found 11). Oh yeah, I forgot I marked all the dots and darts on the top I cut out yesterday morning.

I have to remember to only drink regular tea early in the day and not 2 glasses with dinner. I have to drink decaf or this happens every time. This was extreme though, my eyes were wide open when I finally went back to bed at 2 AM! Maybe it was the hour nap I took from 4 to 5 pm yesterday afternoon too. Whatever it was, I will not be doing it again today!

I loved the prom dresses, Lennie, but I saw them at a normal hour. I'm pretty good at sleeping (knock wood).

Cute & fun clothing, Lennie. My daughter has entered a Duct Tape contest when she was in high school as the church's youth group had one. She made a strapless bustier & short mini-skirt. It was fun for her to wear. She learned the hard way, it was better to have a strap unless one wants an "oops" moment.

It's stuff like this that will bring people into the sewing world again. For a craft to stay alive it has to change and evolve. Those designs are all amazingly creative although some more attractive than others. The colonial look is pretty hideous IMO but ultra creative. The umbrella look is ready for Vogue.

And to think how impressed I was with my ds when he made an ENTIRE wallet out of duct tape! It really was pretty cool. ;)

Maybe it's the month? I tossed and turned until after 2, then was wide awake at 5:30. Why oh why when I can sleep in do I wake up so early??
The duct tape outfits are pretty amazing. The winners were definitely my favorite. Very creative kids.
