Car boot sale.

Got this at a car boot sale recently. It is great, let me tell you! In addition to stabbing (with a felting needle) and ripping (paper), I can now hammer my frustrations away.


This was my first attempt. Made from tin cut from a cooldrink can with tin snippers and folded over with pliers.
Good news - the maths development is finished, apart from a final look I need to take when it has been typeset. Whoooo hooooo!!!!! The science editing is not done yet - about 200 pages still to be delivered by the author, and then of course it has to go through several proofs up to master set. I think another month or two should do it. And then .... freedom! .....oh, sweet, sweet freedom ....

Have a great weekend, everyone! I am taking an early one ...

Do you get tomato puree in metal tubes - if you cut the tubes upen, you can use them for metal work, such as your stamping. Glad the work is nearing an end - you deserve some time to play!

Stabbing and ripping and hammering and stamping and snipping...all great ways to vent frustration. I really liked your first bit of metal stamping. Yes, a great find.

Hooray for the accomplishment of finishing some of the proofing. Looking forward with you to your freedom!

The letters for metal stamping are about the coolest thing I have seen in a very long time!
I can not wait until you are finished with that job of yours- I have been missing you SO MUCH- and Kendalee- where the hell is she? DANG! I am lonesome for y'all.
Snous wants to have her picture taken- Dexter needs a new pin up!
I am going to ARTFEST next week- Dexter is going to be one sad pup!
