Stephie's behavior while browsing Good Will sounds very familiar. Case in point: as she was perusing the store's aisles recently, she spotted two mug holders and a lazy Susan and proceeded to stare at them, trying to think of something to turn them into. This is EXACTLY what I do. I often wonder if the people around me think I have some sort of disorder, staring intently a bit too long at random crap. Anyhoo, the lightbulb popped on for Stephie as she figured her finds would make a great spinning jewelry holder for her dresser. In all, the entire project set her back a scant $2.50!
