What is this?
So I've had a little time to screw around with some ideas. So far none have been all that successful but it's all a "process" as the artist types like to say. I've always wanted to make more useful objects that are pretty but functional. This is one of the latest experiments. What is it?
It's made using the same 9 gauge aluminum wire I've been using for everything-hanging vases, ornaments, jewelry, shawlpins.
The original intention was a soap dish. But it is oddly shaped and too small for a conventional soap bar.
Your special leaf holder? Trivet? Nick suggested it could hold one ball of yarn.I'm thinking that there isn't a large market for such an item.
I'll keep working on the soap dish idea and I'll take any new ideas out there.
On the home front Henry has been really enjoying the wii. Max doesn't seem to really care much about it. It's too hard for his little 3 year old mind and hands to work well.But he has been obsessed with drawing in his new Justice League coloring book and markers from Aunt Michelle.
Pay no attention to the filthy house surrounding my kids.They don't seem to mind.
