WOW! Just WOW! To all you paper mache artists!

I have been wanting to try my hand at working with paper mache for years...

Like most people when I was a young child I can recall making some REALLY bad so called paper mache projects, usually with the dreaded colored tissue paper and white glue...yep, remember that? The dye would get all over your hands and clothes--typically I would end up with it in my mouth and it was no taste sensation.

SO in recent years I have admired the various paper mache creations by artists and I thought hey I have GOT to try that. Over the last few months I have been scanning blogs and watching online videos about the medium and how to techniques.

I found a wonderful blog on the topic BTW by the "monster guy" his creations are wonderful--dragons and various monsters etc (here's his website URL: He has some very informative videos about paper mache.

Well I am here to tell you...that monster guy may make it look REALLY easy on his videos, but today when I began my project it was sooooo NOT easy! LOL

I have an ornament started for the Halloween Queens coming soon ornament page on the selling blog BOOtique, although we'll see if it actually makes it there.

So far....About the only difference between this paper mache project and those I embarked on as a small child, is that as of yet I haven't gotten the paste in my mouth but hey the day is not over!

My hat is off to you folks who have tamed this medium!

SO My cat was just trying to eat a computer cord...

I guess I don't have to rack my brain for a post topic any longer.

I was just sitting here poised at my PC, trying to think of something really useful, or profound, to write about...when I heard "crunch crunch crunch"

"WTH?" thought I...I turned around to look behind me and there was one of my cats (a certain Mr Hiram Pennypacker) merrily munching away on a keyboard cord, looking quite pleased with himself.

WHAT IS IT with my cats that they are constantly looking to munch on, attack, or lay on, the computers around the house--same goes for the TV remote!

My cats love anything giving off an electrical frequency (I guess?)
