I completely forgot about ‘having to do’ this project with Var for school. Which means that it came down to me myself doing it. Then again, we’re usually pretty busy, and after school we have about 4.5 hours before it’s bedtime.
There’s homework, dinner, chores, relaxation … because let’s face it. EVERYONE needs some darn relaxation after a day of school, kids included, I am not going to make them spend all their time doing stuff.
It’s good to just veg. Sometimes. A little every day.
That and 5 hours of PSR every week for Var cuts down on our time to do things, as does my homework, and the fact that.. I forgot until someone on a forum I call my forum home mentioned them.
Ohhh no, I could have worked on it last night. But I told myself, today was the day. Today (Thursday) would be the day Var and I would do this in one go, so by tomorrow (err, probably today in most places), Friday, he could have it for class.
I didn’t even know what these darn things were, nor the point, having never ever done them before. Oi, is there a way I can just keep this thing in the closet so I don’t have to remake one next year?
Actually, come to think of it, Lis would likely want to make this on her own, with lots and lots of stuff and prettiness. It’d probably turn up pink. Or with pink on it. More than I put on Var’s anyway…
Without further adieu, here is the Leprechaun trap. Made out of an old diaper wipe box, left over green corduroy, mod-podge, glitter, gems, gold ribbon, plastic shrink paper (unshrunk) to keep the rainbow rigid and cotton balls. Oh and hemp cord braided to be a rope.
Basically, the Leprechaun is going to need to use the rope to climb/swing down to the pile of gold and cereal. However, in doing so they’re going to pull the lid shut on themselves, dislodging the stick you see (because the lid doesn’t stay up well without it.) and keeping them trapped in.
Even though they could attempt to climb back up the rope, their weight would make the lid impossible to open back up. Bwahahaha, *ahem* yes, I know this is just pretend. Really I do.
That’s the inside of the thing, they mentioned on the paper that “Leprechaun’s love lucky charms!” Well, I wasn’t about to go buy a box of cereal just for this project, and I figure if the kids don’t mind the bagged not name brand cereal then the leprechaun’s shouldn’t either. So instead, we have Marshmallow Mateys. Enjoy Leprechaun’s.
Oh, and please forgive the quality of my photos. I lent my brother my camera weeks ago, and I’m not sure if he’s done with it quite yet. I may just need to buy myself a new one.
I’ll leave you off with just two more images, for the fun of it. Because I can.
I don’t think I’ve actually shown my real face yet on here. Have I? I actually I’ve most of my makeup off in this picture. But this is what I look like after working on this project. Of course, the cuter sight is this one…
My currently insistent lap-cat. Usually she doesn’t spent much time with anyone. But lately, she doesn’t want to leave me alone!
I think about now is a good time for Tori and I to say goodnight!
So, Oyasuminasai minna-san!
(Goodnight/Get some rest everyone!)
