The New year has not started off perfect but I am working hard at making the best of things. New Years day I broke my ankle and was told I could stand for more than 2-3 hours a day. I like to be busy and sitting still is my version of being a in living hell.
January forth another doctor told me that I was going to need to give up coffee. So, instead of multiple cups a day I have limited myself to one cup every other day which seems to not be good enough.
So instead of tossing wonderful smelling beans in the trash …. I spent 6 hours gluing them to an old mirror. I love the wonderful smell of coffee.
Coho Computer invited me to turn the shop into a gallery for the Issaquah Wine Walks so thought it would be fun to make something special for the wall.
Materials: mirror with frame, clear water proof silicon, caulk gun, and corks of course.
Put the mirror on a flat surface, if you are using a table you care about put something under it like old paper bags so that if a cork falls off while you are working you won’t end up with Silicon on your table like I did.
You don’t want to try to do too many corks at once take your time and let them dry! I did one row half way around and then took a break allowing the silicon time to dry.
