Whoa Dude! Five joints and you'll never finish that sucker.

I knew there was a reason it's taken me two months to get from the last picture to this one...

It was finished a while ago, but I just got around to putting it on Flickr.

Every Christmas I make a few more ornaments for the tree. I made six this year; here are three. The others are hard to photograph, I'll try again later.

Beautiful! I'm having trouble with the scale, how big are those last three?

The distance from one point on a triangle to the center of the opposite side is the width of the tape I used. For the last three, I used 3/4 inch tape, and for the big one I used 1/2 inch tape. So the little ones are about an inch and a half.

Let's go to the circus!

Nothing complicated. I just found some goofy materials...

Jeez, the black and white one is great camo, it really confuses the shape. You should submit that to the Pentagon.

Dear Pentagon:

You know all that cash you spend on camo? You should just go to the "Tape for Teenage Girls" section of Office Depot!

HTH, HAND
A Patriot.

Still think these are cool. New additions are neat variations. The zebra one is kind of an optical illusion. OOoooh, make a zebra shaped one with the zebra tape!!! I tried to do this a long time ago, but got too frustrated. So, I'll just enjoy yours. Any new ones on the tree this year?

Scroll up.

Hrm. I never got around to putting up pictures of the other three, and now it's too late; they're in my parents' attic. Maybe next year. They're not all that great anyway - just plain icosahedrons like the circus ones, but filled with snarls of metallic thread. I was hoping for interesting reflections and such, and it kinda worked, but not really.

I did, and noted 2005 in the post date...thinking that was last Christmas, so of course wanted to know about this year, being 2006. What a dope.

And I work with neurotoxins. Scary.

Those cubes and ornaments are great! I didn't expect to see such wonderfulness.


I just started writing poetry again but I am not ready to show it off yet.

I must work on displaying some of the other art/craft I dabble into.


Let's see. hummm
