    I ordered an alarm clock that sounds like a crowing rooster and had it delivered to where I work so I can sneak it home, set it, and hide it from DH under the bed. I call this experiment "Operation weird awakening"

    I can't wait until it is delivered! He is going to freak out when he wakes up to crowing from under the bed!

    Well I hung out with a couple friends and cleaned and dried 7 rabbit hides. We plan on cleaning the deer hides later and once tanned making some winter slippers for the kids.

    I threw my 3 year old a bug themed birthday party, with a caterpillar cake, centipede cake, candied covered oreos decorated like lady bugs, candy covered peanut butter filled bugels to look like bees, and cheese cut into butterflies and dragon flies. [​IMG]

    Does trying to teach 3rd graders to type with some of those students having some learning disabilities count?

    JJ, I would like to see pics of the slippers you make.

    So for those of you that do not know I am a ceramic artist and I was in my fav. little ceramic shop (you know the kind that has been open for 60 years) and I was going thru her old vintage decals and I found these beautiful blue chickens from the 60's so I bought them and I made this today:

    It is a Cake Plate


    Here is the underside


    I am going back to the shop to see what other vintage items I can find. I already have a store interested in them, they are one-of-a-kind!
