Time cards

After 31 days of "Silly2", there is a lingering sense of silly running 'round my head. To keep it alive, I decided to work on something completely new... for me, that is.

Many months ago, at a combination garage-warehouse sale, I found this full box of unused time cards... hundreds of them! So today, what silly thing could I, should I, do with them?

They are pretty boring as is, so I started splashing paint.

I experimented with a variety of glues, rivets, and innards (which being interpreted means - lots of stuff didn't work out, so to preserve the time already invested, I had to disassemble, and start again!). I learned plenty. I felt silly for some of the mistakes I made (duh!). But now that I have two completed time card projects, I like them!

One experiment was a wire hanger. I think I like it.

As for my Silly2 class? It was great. It's amazing how much you can learn when you just let go and be silly... especially in front of other people!

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Colossians 4:5
