Done Stuff for the Art Fair in 4 days

This clock turned out really nice.
I made one of my stamp trays, just on a whim. Mixed up a blue color I liked and painted it, then chose a bunch of interesting stamps with lots of blue in them. I love making these but I don't think I'll have time for another before the show.

After. It's an old GE electric clock and I think it still needs a little something, maybe a row of yellow split peas glued along the top...

Before. Well, sort of. I didn't take a before pic of the above clock but I have this one, too and it's the same exact model. Only this one is a piece of crap. I don't trust Savers anymore. I got the other one at Value Village and it works great. This one was more expensive and when you plug it in it sounds like it's going to explode. I thought, well, maybe the noise will go away after it warms up or something. After 30 minutes I wanted to rip my hair out. It actually sounds like old sci-fi sound effects from a radio show. You know, like a rocket taking off. Only it never stops!! The other jewel I got from Savers that same day had the price sticker covering the fact that one of the knobs on the back of that clock was missing. Now come on, that's not fair. Plus I can't get their stupid sticker glue off. Grrrrr. Savers bad.

Savers?! Sounds like Cost-ers, to me!!

Love your stamp tray. It looks like it has stamps along the sides, too. And the clocks?! Come ON! Neat-o. I've been so insular this week that I didn't see these beauties. I like it that there will be large items and smaller items available. I mean... since I can't even BE THERE or anything.

Photos of table? Sure. I'll look at em next week, since you've asked. Thanks for taking them!
