Mine is a little yellow duckie, no big reason for a duck other than it was super cute. Now part of the challenge is to include your "goal" of what you would buy with the savings. For me it is pretty simple, fabric is the top on the list. But I thought about it for a while and I think if I save enough I may go with a Aurifil thread collection. Either way, fabric or thread, I know I will put it to good use.
Now Sharla's bank is a monkey...and for those not familiar with her, it is because her nick name growing up was monkey. That is just what my dad called her. I sort of thought it would fade away when he died, but my nephew has picked it up and still calls her that. She wants fabric, first and foremost with her savings, but she said she might go for something else, it will depend on how much is saved.
Now the monkey is slightly larger than the duck, but I figure if I totally fill it, then I will dump it into something else until the challenge is complete. As of right now, I split the change I had on my night stand between both banks, and Sharla had a couple of fives on her desk that she added as well. So we are well on our way. The next big thing is I think they need names....hmmm maybe Leroy and Jethro, Crockett and Tubbs, Lucy and Ethel, or maybe Felix and Oscar. Going to have to think about this some more. I'm open to suggestions.
