Here's one I Made Earlier.....


I customised this box when I was still at school. It was an old wooden pencil case that had become quite battered so I covered it on papier mache and painted the lid and then varnished it. Even after all these years it still looks pretty good!

Hello! I found you over at the Squirrel blog and thought I'd check out your blog. Will be adding you to my poet's ring or the blogfellow's list if you'd rather.
I too, am a poet. I'm not a serious one (at least not all the time)but I take my work seriously. I'd appreciate it if you would stop by and give me a whirl. In the archives a poem entitled "Gull Loot" may be right up your street.
I've been to Scotland a few times and have left my heart there in the hills outside Loch Lomond.

I wouldn't have thought paper mache could last that long and be so strong, now you have mind scanning the house to see what i can 'redo' in papermache!

CGP, Thanks for visiting my blog. I am putting you in the poet's ring and will be stopping by from time to time.
Would you consider doing the same?
