If All Else Fails.....
Actually, this is something I did yesterday. I have been seeing these rubber band bracelets all over the place lately. They make a loom $$$ and boxes of rubber bands$$$ sold separately. They are aimed at kids. Or maybe I should say, parents that want to keep kids occupied.
I ran onto a U Tube video showing how to make the same bracelets, using two fingers or two pencils. I found just the rubber bands in the jewelry department, cheaper than in kids crafts and decided I wanted to have a go at it. This is the results of about one hour of work, yesterday afternoon. OK....The six year old can go back to minis.
This morning I went into my workroom and decided that I should get back to work on Daisy's cottage... The bathroom, to be specific.
I had an idea for a sink.... I won't go into it except to say... Don't try this at home.
I was using air dry clay a piece of cardboard tube and half a ping pong ball... Tessie bounced in the room and asked...."This is going to be a what???" Then she quickly left.
After an hour's work, I decided that it was a silly idea and quit. It looked like a two year old did it.
I forgot that paper clay just doesn't smooth out as well as poly.
Then she informed me that her hat show was in dire need of repairs and cleaning.
That seemed like a better idea than making another run at a sink.
I'm out of the mood now.
I did accomplish something. She is back in the hat shop planning a big sale now.
That should keep her out of my hair for a while.
Back to the drawing board. Why didn't I just make the sink that I had a photo of. Much simpler. I hid my paper clay and am going back to sane ways of doing things now.
See you tomorrow.
