I’ve been on a real ‘making crap’ kick lately. I’ve not felt like buying stuff, and am really getting into making gifts for people. This is the last one I made, for le boy’s birthday, which is on Thursday.
He seems to like it too, which I was sort of hoping for, given his penchant for geeky clocks and the colour green. In fact, I enjoyed making this so much that I’m tempted to buy a bunch of mechanisms on ebay and go crazy making clocks. I could even sell them, if I got good 🙂

Anyway, in other news, I was contemplating having a shoe-painting party on Saturday in my place. You know those fabric plimsol thingies with pictures/patterns on them that you can buy in shoe shops for €30? Well, buy yourself a pair of plain white ones for a fiver in Dunnes and call over to my gaff. I’ll stump up a bunch of fabric paint and we’ll all be trez chiquita for minimal bucks.

Anyone interested? Drop me a comment/message
