I'd hoped to have this finished in time for my Studio Calico guest designer gig, but life (and laundry) got in the way. Today I said, however, "Laundry be damned!"...just like that..I said it...and I made myself a clock.
I. Made. A clock.
I'm so freakin' impressed. The hands move and it tells time and everything!
Yeah, I know it's not brain surgery, but dangit, I had to DRILL something. BY MYSELF. And? I used a GLUE GUN! And only burned myself twice.
You have no idea what a big deal this is.
I totally deserve a cookie.
It didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped, but it was fun figuring it all out. Let's call this one a prototype, because now my wheels are turning, and I can see breaking out the drill again. And maybe? Maybe next time I won't squeal when I turn it on and it makes that scary drill sound.
But I probably will.
Two of the papers I used and the number stickers are from Studio Calico's Elementary line (available at lots of online retailers), plus I used a piece of exclusive Studio Calico paper from their November Napa Valley kit.
Which makes it a faaaancy clock.
