Gettin' Scrappy

It's that time of year again...time to get a costume ready for the EXPO classes' Trashion Fashion show!  Sam wanted to "start a tradition" and go back to SCRAP Denton to pick up the items he needed for his outfit.  Each item he uses needs to be something that might otherwise be thrown away, so there's no better place than this.  This year's theme: TOYS.  Sam chose a classic - the Rubik's Cube.

It's been a long time since I've seen either of these things!

We decided to cover each side of the Rubik's Cube with a different type of trash.  Here we are, counting out old plastic bottle caps.  We also picked up CDs, 3.5in floppy disks (to add to the ones I had in the garage from college courses), some felt and a box to make a hat.  We had the foam, construction paper, elastic and an old pair of hole-y jeans at home.  The best SCRAP find were the five, individual, square pieces of cardboard that were the perfect size and shape to tape together to make the cube.   Lucky find!

Time to take it all home, heat up the glue-gun, and get scrappy!

Jub Jam 2017

These are photos from our big exciting night out (just the two of us!) to the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff to see these special guys for the first time.  I still can't believe we were there and got to see all three of them in their element - Gordon on his guitar,  Jubs on his fiddle, and Junes just being Junes.  It was a pleasant surprise that we discovered several new artists to enjoy, too, Flatland Cavalry being my favorite.   It's so fitting that we were the first ones there and ended up in charge of showing everyone where the bathrooms were.  We're such dedicated P1s.  I really can't believe I got to take photos of these knuckleheads.   To be able to photograph them while they performed was the icing on the cake!
