There are times in life when nothing else really fits. I find it helps to say it, and then move on. It is kind of a "there, I feel better now" moment.
When life is throwing lemons your way, toss an F Bomb back and see how it feels. I suggest that you wait until the kids are out of ear shot- but I won't judge.
I'm nice like that.
We have had the need for an F bomb or two in our house these days (and, no, not because we have a house guest ;) and so, I created this little beauty.
Call it a paperweight, or a knick-knack, or whatever. It makes me smile and giggle in an evil little way.
I was a little giddy about getting started, so I painted the "bomb" before I remembered to get the camera. Then, by that time I had paint all over and I was committed, so I took all of the photos with my phone. Sorry 'bout the quality!
I started with unfinished wood pieces from the craft store. I think the ball is supposed to be for making tiny bun feet (like for a tiny time out tuffet?) It has one flat side, which was perfect for this project since I didn't want it to roll around!
A little distressing ink and sanding so it didn't look so candy-apple red and perky!
Then I dug around in that jar of bits-and-bobs for a nut that was tiny enough.
Slapped on a little E6000 (Amazing stuff! Glues everything. Keep the windows open and your fingers out of the way!!)
Popped in a little snippet of distressed hemp twine.
Finished it off with a little more distressing ink and paint around the nut... and Viola!
I had myself an F Bomb! Makes a great tongue-in-cheek gift for that special someone! Who are you dropping the F Bomb on? Comment and let me know, just don't drop it on me!
