After a…what is it, three-year hiatus? I finally sculpted something again. Hooray!
This is something I wanted to make for my husband David back when he was still just my boyfriend, but I got busy (2011), and then we didn’t really like the house we were living in (2012), so I didn’t get around to it until now (2013). We just got married and bought our first house, so this seemed like the right opportunity.
Anyway, it took about two days, several photos, and a Google Maps aerial view to get the house sculpted, and then came the scary baking part where the whole thing could go up in flames (literally). But the house survived, and then all I had to do was stick it in the snowglobe…somehow.
Ever wondered what’s inside a snowglobe? I don’t know about yours, but mine is full of plastic snow, three bottles of distilled water, a shot of vodka, and an adult enema kit.
Listen, we were out of rubbing alcohol (to prevent bacteria), and they don’t sell pure glycerine (to break the surface tension of the water) at my local drugstore. They do, however, sell glycerin-based adult enemas. And I had an open bottle of vodka in the house. So.
Ho ho ho?
