uh.uh. guitar.

It is almost impossible for me to sew with this guy around. But I try to get my scrappy craft fix in anyway, especially on a rainy afternoon stuck in the house.
I'm pleased with the results, but honestly, it was a screaming tear filled battle to get this cardboard masterpiece made.He wanted the scissors. And the cardboard. And the tape. And not the pieces I teared off for him. Either those other bloggin' crafty mamas aren't telling the whole story of the things they whip up,they secretly have nannies,or their children are nothing like this busy curious dude.

I intended to cover the whole guitar with paper mache for strength and these would be the in process photos. But living with this guy I am learning to let go of even my scrappy ideas of completion. The masking tape has held up fairly well to his teething. The neck is now bent but in a very rock and roll bend the notes kind of way from playing so hard. And that's exactly the way it should be.
