Announcing... April Ampersands

Things have been a little too quiet around here lately, so I've been thinking about how to get myself making stuff again and give you something interesting to read about. Giving myself a goal for a month worked pretty well over at Two Loose Teeth, and I want to try something vaguely similar here.
So here's my plan: every day in April(or every few days), I'm going to find or make an ampersand (or two or three) and share it with you.

Are you into it?

I have a few ideas for ampersands brewing, but I'll need your help.
What sort of things do you want to see? I'll be using a variety of materials, but what do you think would be fun? What will be a challenge?
And what font has your very favorite ampersand?

At the end of the month, I'll come up with some extra ampersand goodness for all of us to enjoy, so let's get this thing started.

An ampersand-centric ad that I tore from a magazine years ago. This crush goes way back.
