Phases of paper mache

First, you get enormous balloons and blow one up. Rest.

Then, you figure out how to make it stay still.

An upended stool is a good start, but any air movement whatsoever will make it drift away. So you tether it with a makeshift clip twist tied to the stool. And you get to work.

After hours of effort, you will be halfway done.

And then, just as you feel like you are making good progress, the balloon will shift and suddenly be punctured by the twist tie. So your final product looks like this.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to weep in a corner for a while.

Sea Serpents like movies too

This one enjoyed Storks a lot. (Me too.)

He's also looking forward to Trolls. (I can't believe they've come back.)

May cherubs lift you high

I guess Sea Serpent's luck continues to hold (him up).

Sea Serpent gets lucky

We could all use a little more of that, am I right?

Sea Serpent Sees Shoes

The fun part about getting one's hair done in a vintage shop is all the vintage.

Sea Serpent finds a whale of a friend

Fish of a feather stick together. Or something like that.

Abacus impersonation

Now Rocky and Flatty are trying to convince me they are experts in calculation, but something just doesn't add up...

It's pumpkin season!!!!

Rocky and Flatty are good sports about it, but my fondness for all things pumpkin is infamous.

We will rock you

Rocky and Flatty preach to the crowd. Rock on, small friends.

Rocky has a bubbly personality

Rocky and Flatty enjoy a little zen moment at work. Ommmmm.
