kitchen craft

I used this shrink plastic (bought on Ebay) and followed the instructions


to make little gauge type buttons for robots.

They say small things amuse small minds.

  9. Delightful as usual AND is there a way we can stream the FB/text exchanges between your kids and their friends about what you get up to. In the best possible way, your life sounds like an episode of Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'. At one stage Etta James said her epitaph should be 'The sign said stop, but I went on straight aheah!'. And yours should be 'Funny - even without the felt' - and that is meant as a great compliment :)

  16. EEEP! I sincerely hope that there is no end to your creative genius Jodie because this is easily my very favourite corner of the blogosphere. It is like opening a present every time you post - I know it'll be good but I have no idea in what way it'll be amazing!
    (I remember people shrinking chip packets and making them into hang tags for their school bags.)

  18. Yep, back to the days when the height of cool was a shrunken twistie packet on your locker keyring! And I seem to recall shrinky dinks in cereal packets - in the good old days when you got something other than just cereal in there!!!
