Day 118: Searching my house for something to make, I came upon a stack of egg cartons. Right away I pictured a funny little hat, with bumps all over it. So I went for it. I had to do a little cutting and sewing to get the right shape. (Egg cartons sew well together.) Then I sewed on a couple of ties. When I was a kid, I always thought that by the time the year 2000 came around, everyone would be wearing silver robotic space-age kinda clothing. This hat, or helmet perhaps, might go well with that type of clothing. Or maybe it is a grotesque insect hood. Either way, it's a cute, funny little article of clothing that I will probably only wear on Halloween, or maybe I'll throw a dress up party, just for an excuse to wear it.
Day 119: Back when my daughter was learning her ABC's, I made flashcards for her out of index cards. Since she outgrew them, I've decorated a few of them. I think of them as similar to those inspirational tarot cards that are out there, but they are just meant to give you something to think about, reflect on for a moment. I made one for my project this day.
Day 120: I decorated the bark of the tree I made on days 105-107, before heading off to an overnight camping trip with my daughter's 4th grade class. For that reason, I kept it simple. I glued on circles cut from corrugated cardboard.
Day 121: I covered up a painting that I didn't much like with scraps of cardboard, torn journal pieces, and tiny little scraps of magazine pages. This was very fun, and I'm quite happy with the result.
