This week has been filled to the brim! Which I enjoy but leaves little room for writing and reading.
However, I couldn't go on with my day without showing you this:
The Boy had been wanting to make a Bantha craft that he had found on the net.
I helped him make sure the pieces were evenly cut, and I sewed the legs, lips, eyes and horns on.
The Boy sewed the rest.
Which amazes me. He's no stranger to need and thread. He's made holsters, and Mithril (that is the special chain-mail shirt worn by Frodo, for those who aren't into Tolkien) and once he even made some chaps out of some old brown (faux) suede I had lying around.
Which I wholly endorse.
Except when it comes to toy making.
If you are one of my long-time readers, you'll remember that crazy time a couple years ago when I was all into toy making. There were elephants, and lambs, robots, dolls and bunnies.
I had forgotten how difficult toy making can be with all their details.
He will be a single Bantha.
And apparently, he's a flocker. I've been told that bantha's are usually kept in captivity for use in battle, but occasionally there are pods (are they pods?) that are flockers.
Ours is one of those....
After typing all this, I think I am worried about ourselves.
Anyway, what are two kids to do with extra bantha hair?
Tape hair to their faces and pose like a couple of thugs.
Yep. Thy look pretty thuggy don't they?
I am especially afraid of thugs with bunny ears.
This thug told me to post this picture:
He said it was artistic.
Bantha Hair Thug Art...you heard it here first.
Speaking of art...If you don't hear from me much in the next few days its because I am in the process of researching a machine that will help me in my artistic pursuit. I have been considering this for years, but only recently got the green light from The Mister. Can you guess what it is?
