Where have I been?
Was my last post really in November? It is Shameful really isn't it?
At least I have been crafting a few things here and there and will attempt to post them without monthly delays in between.
So let's get to it.
Today's post can only be describe as well ...... as........ Truly one of a kind never seen before and probably will never be seen again. It was constructed from mostly upcycled materials and is completely whimsical which is what you get when you mix Christmas my nephew and his gift request made specifically for his Crazy Aunt Cindy (that me.)
"A suitcase full of Mustaches with a Barber Shop Pole coming out of it."
Does that make you giggle? If not read it again.
You have got to at least smile. Don't you love how creative and specific it is? Well I do.
Perhaps that is why the request went to me and not Santa.
I started with this:
And an old book
I scrounged through my cupboards for all the cardboard boxes I could find.
I make messes all over my house. This project was constructed mostly on the living room floor.
Here is the Barber shop pole taking a little more shape. It's just missing some shiny sliver duct tape.
To fill the suitcase I bought some mustaches at a party store. Cut some more out of fur and felt and I even made some out of candy.
Of course color and varity where important.
I didn't get at lot of pictures of the mustaches that I made but here are a few in the finished Mustache Suitcase with a Barber Shop Pole.
I don't know what my nephew is planning to do with all these mustaches but I sure had fun making the whole silly project for him.
So what's your crazy?
