I made this little tv, tv guide, popcorn box, and table for my mini-swap partner Jessie. Just as I was wrapping it up, I noticed that it was a little messed up. So I'm fixing it and sending it out a little late. I hope she likes it.
Here's how I made it: The tv part is a block of wood. Head pins made the perfect antennae, anchored with a little button. I printed out an image from "I Love Lucy" and glazed it with liquid glass (available at the craft store). I printed the popcorn box and filled it with tiny crumbles of styrofoam which I dotted with bits of yellow to make it look more realistic. The tv guide was just scaled down from an image I found online and printed out.
In other news, I realized today when I looked on their site and found that I didn't win the Plummy that I should never be an actress up for an Oscar. When I eagerly scrolled to the part of the page where they announced the winners, and didn't see my name there where I expected it, my eyes welled up with tears. Truly!
How silly am I? I do wish that I won it. Pink Loves Brown won and I knew the instant that I saw their sweet site that they'd win.
Rich said that he will give me a trophy that says "Best Miscellaneous Wife". Want to make me feel better? In your comment tell me what trophy you'd give me. Then I'll always have this blog entry as my virtual trophy case.
