December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)
It’s not technically the last thing I made, just one of the more recent projects I’ve been working on. The very last thing I made is a Christmas present, and while I don’t think this person even knows about my blog, you never know who could be reading.
So you get this… I think most of you will recognize it right away. For those of you who need a little help, it’s a scarf that is made to look like a piranha plant coming out of a pipe from Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. One of the derby coaches posted a picture of one on her facebook, and I rose to the challenge of figuring out how to create one.
It definitely works out for me too… My boss saw it, and asked me to make a couple for his daughters for Christmas. Boom, $50 in my pocket. And now, I get to make another one in exchange for a massage… and lovely, lovely massage that I have been desperately needing but unable to afford. SWEET.
