I received a gold fork in the mail from Laura Collins after participating in the Virtual Family dinner. The gold fork was a quite adorable little lapel pin, except I'm not really a pin kind of girl. I am, however, a creative kind of girl and I thought, "Hmmm...wouldn't that make a cute necklace..."
I easily removed the sticky pin part from the back of the fork and set about to make a hole in the fork by pounding a nail into it.
I dented the first nail.

If you are interested in purchasing a necklace, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will be working out costs and proceeds portions between me, Laura, and the National Eating Disorders Association, with the money earmarked for anorexia research.
Ed doesn't stand a chance.
