Contraption

What can you make with . . .

poster board
pens/crayons
two dowel rods
a good handful of 1” rings
crochet thread
three ‘D’ rings
painters tape
several yards of sequins fabric cut into 3” strips
one nut case mom

Well, if I’m lucky, a pull-action contraption that will automatically make streamers and a “Happy Birthday” poster magically fall from the loft into our family room obstructing my husband’s view of Monday night football. All of this, with a simple pull of a string.

That is Andrew’s dream. He has been talking about it for a week.

If you will excuse me, I have work to do. I have less than an hour.

Wish me luck.

Other than pictures, I wouldn't mind a sketch on how to build such a thing. Sounds awesome.

You guys always want pictures. I'm working on it . . . . I'm not quite the photographer that some of my friends are.
