I had one of those, "What on earth am I going to wear???" moments before my Toastmaster's meeting. I have a blue shirt and this blue skirt was sitting near it. Hmmm... maybe these will work together? The skirt had the front seam falling down a bit so I just added some tape to fix it.
For our meeting, and because I just love thrifting!! I came up with a funny idea to spark conversation. Instead of just giving out ribbons for most improved and best speech, I found these second hand trophies and gave them out. The idea is simple. If you win the trophy, you place it on your desk and people can ask about it or it is just a fun way to promote the club. Each week, we bring them back and rotate them.
This trophy was .25 cents and this outfit below was also completely thrifted! This whole outfit cost: $1!
Things you can buy for a dollar, my outfit or Ribeye Steak at the Dollar Store!
I asked my craft cat to work on my blog post. I came back after an hour and she was asleep on the job!
