Summer Fun - Paper Mache

One of my hobbies is paper mache. Summer is a great time to do mache because it dries quickly.

Sometimes I even get paid for it via special-event decor......



I do a lot of paper mache on the road too. The wallpaper paste, pieces of cardboard, and newspaper doesn't take much room. I usually stick the cardboard and newspaper underneath one of the dinette cushions. I like to sit outside the FaN and craft away.....



A couple of weeks ago I stopped at a roadside flea market (another summer-fun thing), found this aquarium, and turned it into a salad bowl....




Anything those goes into the FaN - I like it to have a multitude of purpose. The salad bowl might also make an interesting lamp, but needed a base. So, made a base out of paper mache (you can see it drying in the photo above, second from the top).



Here's the lamp in the dark - sorry, it didn't turn out very clear - don't know why.

Oh well. It's another entry for the Monthly Photo Contest (more summer fun!)......

Nice. Any recommendations on where to stay on Manitoulin? No Provincial Parks IIRC.

There are two nice private parks that we have stayed at. Providence Bay is nice near the lake and has a sandy beach. Batman's is farther North and is on a smaller inlet. You can get sites right near the water there. We prefer Batman's because of that feature.

What do you do when a moose comes to dinner?

Winding River Resort, Grand Lake Colorado. We were sitting inside and then all of a sudden he drank all the juice from the hummingbird feeder. Next, he raided the birdseed.

My wife is leaning out the door with the video cam.

Hi Jack,

We're at Orr's Island Campground, mid-coast, site 43. Site 45 is great as well and just happens to also be occupied by an Airstreamer. Great week!
