This post features the set that my friend Michelle Goodnetter made, from scratch! From plain white 1/4 inch foam board sheets into the awesomeness you see pictured here.
|Each of the cards features a Vegas performer. Left to right- Fran Sinatra, Elvis, Cher, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.|
|The dice are wrapped in giant plastic wrap, the kind the movers use on furniture. We have moved so many times, I happened to have a roll of it at home. It keeps the dice from getting wet and soggy on the ice.|

I will add a full set photo when we take one this weekend, and I will be posting the how-to on the creative hairpieces, costumes, and design after the shows this weekend - promise.
Here are pictures of the gifts I give to my students to wish them luck on the show. (to be clear, I usually give a little something to all of the kids I teach private lessons to, not all 100 kids in the show). Because I was short on time this year, I shopped for the show theme colors of candy at Party City, filled the cello bags, and voila. Much less time than last year's Movie-themed gifts. The tags are made from playing cards.
