Work in Progress...
When I was growing up in the 1970s and '80s, game shows dominated morning and early evening TV. I loved almost all of them, but one of my favorites was "Liar's Club". It was actually first shown in 1969 with Rod Serling as the host, but in the late '70s Allen Ludden hosted the show, and those are the ones I remember. The show featured a panel of celebrity guests (Ludden's wife, Betty White, was a regular), who would be presented with an unusual object; each would give a ridiculous explanation of what the object was used for. Contestants would try to guess which star was telling the true story and place wagers to try to win money. When the show wasn't on, my sister and I would find strange objects around the house and make up alternative uses for them, as though we were on the panel.
So when I finished working on the "tester" card above, I looked at it and thought of "Liar's Club". Do you know what it is? I have been testing some fabric glues with different fabrics and think I have found one that suits my needs for some items to add to my Etsy shop this fall. Just waiting on the fabric to arrive and then I'll start gluing!
