First of all, I want to sincerely thank you all for your kind words and healing thoughts yesterday. I am thrilled to report that my Dad is back on his feet and feeling better than ever; we’ve got warriors in our genes and angels watching our backs, of that I’m certain.
Secondly, the highlight amidst the craziness yesterday was that I finally got my copy of my Dad’s new book, Dancing with Rejection; A Beginner’s Guide to Immortality. Rather fortuitous timing, if I dare say so myself…it’s a beautiful story, very poetically written. Granted, I’m biased, but I highly recommend checking it out.
Thirdly, today’s project! You may remember that I had mounds of cardboard left over after making the Be the Change free food box a few days ago. After a little work, the mound became this colourful pile of scrap board. I had to photograph the sponge because mixing the paint is the fun part!
I wasn’t entirely sure what these would become at first, to be honest, but then I devised a new technique! Using an extra dialysis needle as a hole punch! They are actually perfect tools for preparing holes in cardboard! And I have an entire box of the wrong size of needle, so I was pretty pleased to find a purpose for them. Might be a story that the folks over at The Human Beanery would find entertaining, actually. 😊
After I had punched a bunch of holes along the edge of these painted sheets of cardboard, an idea for what they could become finally came to me: baby robots! Ok, so I only finished one…but it’s pretty irrisitable, don’t you think?
