Handmade crafts have never been my “thang”. Well except when I was a little girl I made a paper chain for our Christmas tree and even that didn’t turn out all that well.
My friend, Kay from Tupelo, decided it was time that I learn to craft again since we’re retired and all. Besides, my mental age has returned to about age five anyway. . So she came down this week to teach me how to make Deer Beer. You may have seen them on Pinterist and they are pretty cute.
She brought the glue gun and all the supplies and I bought three six-packs of imported beers which would be gifts for my three male friends. Yes, I’m down to three these days and lucky to have them.
We wrapped pipe cleaners around the necks of the long necks to make the antlers then glued on “googly eyes” which she tells me have multiple uses. (Just what that would be I’m not sure)
We finished them off with little puffs for their noses to make them resemble Rudolph. Suddenly as I struggled to get the keep the glue from turning my fingers to a pulp, I realized I was actually focusing on something, a rarity for this ADD afflicted senior citizen. However I also suffer from LFT – low frustration tolerance – so I only completed three six packs before I began to feel stressed.
They turned out pretty cute and I may go buy my own glue gun to add to my vast gun collection which includes a shot gun that doesn;t work and a nail gun I’m afraid to use.
Thanks Kay. I really had a good time but mostly because we talked about our old days at Ole Miss where we lived side by side in Stewart Dorm. We both have different memories of those days so it’s fun to get some of my memories back.
