Not a creature was stirring...not even a mouse...
Working away on a little surprise.
I came across this image on pinterest almost a year ago. You know how pinning goes.
I have quite the DIY board. Things I'd like to do, ONE DAY. But rarely do I dig in and do them.
Only I was inspired to attempt this as a special handmade Christmas gift.
I didn't realize it would wind up taking me the better part of two days.
But I think that says more about me, not the directions. I rarely, I mean rarely
sew. And I had quite a few interruptions. So her images are way more polished.
But at least I did it.
And I decided to modify one for my son who really likes the musician/DJ Dead Mau5.
Yes, I had to look him up. Because I'm getting old like that. But a friend whose husband
is a musician educated me that he has been on a few MTV music awards shows performing.
And my husband's 20-something assistant was him for halloween. He brought it this head piece
for my son to see. He was beyond excited...and now wants to make one too.
But I did manage to modify the wee mouse into a dead mouse. Complete with a teddy bear
in his own tin house. I actually think my son will appreciate it. And yes, I'm kind of cracking myself up.
tiny pieces. And keeping it real...
a dining room again before tonight.
MERRY ELF MAKING EVERYONE!!!
