Balls & Tulle

Today I owe the world a geek dollar.
 I am wriggling-in-my-desk-chair excited over 6" green foam balls and turquoise tulle found on eBay for a frikken' STEAL. Because guess what? At the top of my list of Things I Never Knew I Cared About sits the price of styrofoam balls - Rather, the astronomical price.
When you want say... 20 of these puppies, the craft store ticket of $6.99 per ball causes some serious sticker shock.
 Hallelujah eBay: $1.50 per. Seriously. I bought out the sellers lot for the price of a Saturday trip with Nate to Starbucks ($10.50 plus $5 shipping).

And the tulle I found this morning? Five yard bolts of turquoise tulle for under $6 per bolt. Um, yes please. Thirty yards plus shipping of one super-bulky box (I don't envy the eBay-er that has to tote those to the post office) for $40.
For the record, yes, the tulle and balls will come together in a hopefully happy marriage (ha) of craftiness... But we'll have to cross that bridge when we come to it.

As always, in my head it looks awesome. Cross your fingers.
