WIP Friday - Christmas presents!

Is it lil' Fez?

Current WIP, Bray's Christmas present. When I first laid this little guy out, Mike said, "Is it Fez?" No, I am not creating a doll based on That 70s Show for my two-year-old nephew. This is an Archie, or maybe a Buzz. Depends how far i gtet with him before Christmas. But right now, he is rather 70s-ish. Hopefully soon I will be able to start sewing him together. I must get the studio/craft room cleaned up and presentable asap. I should finish it up tonight, but yesterday wore me out.

I didn't really think so…until I fell asleep face down on our bed this afternoon while taking photos of my wip and my newest "thrifting" find. Does it count as thrifting if I got it in the Library basement?

Everyone needs a retro litter bag!

Everyone seems to be sharing some retro craft books as of late and now I have my very own…I mean, who doesn't need a litter bag? Look at that design, how hip is it? Found this Better Homes and Gardens Gifts to make yourself, circa 1972, in the library basement. It was 1 of 4 craft books in the on-going book sale, I actually had to hide it as I walked back to the Square where I parked my car to fish around for enough spare change to buy it.

Retro Owl-y paperweights

Like all 70s stuff, there is some hideous stuff in here, but there are also some great things. Awesomely stylized and very much in the now.

Retro Reindeer

Sadly, I think these reindeer are only props in the photo. Too bad, no directions. Just have to figure it out myself, I guess.

Retro Stylized Rooster

Now I love the stylized look of the rooster, but this is one of the pieces that are brink of 70s ick!


And then there's every child's favorite toy…Fatso!

just thought I'd let you know a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
