probably labeling my kids drawings. our family lives far away so they send pictures. my favorite was my daughter (4) when she's 'big' playing with her great-grandma when great-grandma is a kid. mixing time is fun:)

I collaged a wallet once and gave it to my frugal husband. He displays it as a paperweight in his office. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

Hi: I remember once that we made a easter egg, it was very big, the problem was that we bought a few candys and they were lost in the big egg.

Thanks for the opportunity to win that book.

When I was about five, (a looong time ago), I made my mom a doorstop out of an old high-heeled shoe (filled with plaster of Paris), to which I glued elbow macaroni, which was then spray painted gold. I don't remember giving it to my mom, but I wish I could remember the look on her face when I did. This was a project we did in Brownies? Or Sunday school maybe? I didn't come up with the idea on my own. Crafting sure has come a long way since then!


The craziest object I painted, drew or collaged? Come to think of it, I haven't actually gone on the crazy side -- at least not yet... I plan to paint/collage a chameleon though and will post it on my blog later.

Happy creating,

PS: Oh, and thanks for the chance to win the book!

I've been drawing these round half animal half ball shaped creatures lately. Don't know why.......:) I do remember in kindergarten, collaging a plaster dog. I loved it! Had it for years and refused to give it up!

I have painted on kevlar. It is really cool to add to my collages in garments

The craziest thing I ever created was back in high school in my advanced art class! I batiked material to look like dead dry skin and then cut and sewed a doll like sculpture wearing a rag dress of the same material. I then "hanged" it with a hangman's noose! My teacher who often called me "quiet and niave" just looked at it then looked at me and said, "You're just a little bit morbid, aren't you?" I did win second place in the art competition though. LOL!


My hand!!! No really, how about rain barrels?? I just saw that on Alena's FB wall and I thought it was lovely!


And I would LOVE to win her book! I heard from a friend it was absolutely fabulous!!!!
