unlucky victim is Magpie from Mine, by magpie since her blog is about her life and her beautiful crafts, I decided to try and make her something with my own hands.
WITH. MY. OWN. HANDS!!
I figured she would appreciate it more since the Holidays are all about the feelings and what not.
I went to Michael's and Joann Fabrics and picked up some glitter, tulle, M&Ms, a cat, some fishing wire, buttons, wiggly eyes, googly eyes (yes, there is a difference), a tomato, a slinky, 1/3 of a mask and some hot chocolate.
I took my goodies and sat at my peninsula, THE SAME ONE THAT HAS SOME OLD GLUE FROM A PREVIOUS "PROJECT", and started on my gift.
I decided to make her a puppet because I'm Ameri-Mexican.
Andy hated my first try. He said something about my mind and gutter but he was drinking scalding hot chocolate so he could have been high.
My next try was a little bit more ethnic but Andy said some dude named Jeff Dunham had one just like it.
He suggested I should look into my past and take inspiration from that.
Okay. Back to the sticky drawing board!
As I sewed and glued, cut and drank, swore and pierced, I realized I was beginning to lose my mind a little bit
more. I found myself sticking my hand up the bums of old dolls and saying
I was finally able to finish my masterpiece!
It's not as pretty as anything Magpie would make but I know she'll appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that went into making it.
Happy Holidays Magpie and you're Welcome!!
All the Secret Santa Can Suck It! participants are on my side bar. If you are one of them, go look for your *gift*!
And now I'm off to find some turpentine and a lighter... that gets rid of crazy glue on the skin, right?
