You. guys. Today is one of my favorite days of the year, a treat of trash to treasure proportions. It’s Day One of Swap It Like It’s Hot week, hosted by Charlotte, of Ciburbanity.
This round of swapping and magic has been the most challenging yet. I almost gave up. You will understand when you see what I saw when I opened my box from Ariel, at PMQ For Two.
Bam. Fish. Plaster fish, to be exact. My friends, for SO long, I had NO IDEA what to do with these lovelies.
The engineer tried to help, he really did. He used our scroll saw to cut the fish in to pieces and tried to re-assemble them in the shape of a Christmas tree. Hmm…no.
We thought about pulverizing them and adding water to the dust; then molding the plaster in to something else. The problem with that idea is that if it fails, it’s game over.
One fine day I turned a fish over and became inspired by the flat side. I asked the engineer to cut a bucket shape and he agreed. Whew.
