Wow what a week.
I ended up back at the doctors
as my IBS hadn't been behaving and
the medication wasn't working.
The weather was awful but then it brightened
I didn't finish making much this week.
Time just seems to be flying by.
I can't believe it's spring already.
I do hope we get a nice summer this year.
Red Monster has been busy with science experiments.
This is an experiment to show what collagen feels
and looks like.
You put the egg in vinegar and leave it.
The acid takes away everything except the collagen
and the egg shell that is left is soft and bouncy.
We couldn't resist the magic crystal tree.
We also looked up how and why it is created.
The salt crystals are dissolved in the ammonia.
It soaks up the cardboard tree shape
and as ammonia drys quickly the crystals form
at the edges. As each one forms another grows on top.
With the shape of the cardboard the tree shape appears.
This is the little gift I created for Red Monster.
Everything fits into the tin and there
are two sky scenes for day and night.
He loves playing with his Charmander and
the little things he has.
It's so easy to pack away and take with you
I made the figure and bits out of fimo clay.
I then made the bed, bottom and skys out of felt.
I added the glow in the dark star and moon from
a set Red Monster had.
I think it turned out quite well
and Red Monster loves it.
I had my hair dyed and restyled this week.
A bit of difference.
It won't stay looking like that as I am not very
good at styling my own hair.
It feels a lot lighter and cooler which will be nice
if the weather ever heats up.
Apart from that I haven't any real news.
I hope to be back soon.
