Gone Cuckoo of Carriage Clocks!

Hello Everybody!  Hola Mi Amigos!

Did I say I'm going cuckoo over carriage clocks?  Well, I mean it!  LOL!  I've been trying to finish up the carriage clock pattern, working on carriage clocks for gifts, uploading carriage clock pictures and now blogging about carriage clocks!  I think one of my gears is missing and my winder is over-wound!

Haven't blogged in a couple of days and just wanted to stop in real quick and say I'm still ticking! I'm hoping to have the carriage clock pattern done soon.  Need to insert the photos and give it a going over and it will be ready.  Thanks for being patient with me.

OK, you know how my ADD kicks in right...Completely changing subjects on ya here!  Hats!  Top hats to be exact!  My other love!  Had to add this one to the collection today.  For some reason it looks like the shape of a Beefeater's Hat...you know the Tower of London Beefeaters... Like I know what one looks like...NOT!  But it does.  Love how it's done up in the Halloween style.....

Am I the only one that sits looking at this picture trying to figure out how to make one!  Get me?  We need to figure it out and create one!  :)





Well, back to the tick tock of the carriage clock! (Whatever!  LOL!)  Just taking a quick breather and saying hello!

Thank you, Thank You! for your kind words today on Graphic 45's blog and on my YouTube channel for the Mini In A Box Project!  You All ROCK my world!  :)

Have an awesome night y'all!

Jim

  4. Love the hat. Did you see the email I sent a week ago about the hat class? I am sure you will think of something to make it do. Think Jack in the Box!!

  6. Hey, Jimbo, glad to see you comin' up for some air! Honestly, I envisioned you covered in Dylusion sprays from head to toe...lol. Covered in clock parts instead is even better! It means you are closer to the big reveal. Hopefully you will share pics of your masterpieces. By the way, the hat does resemble a "beefeater" hat a-la-Halloween...my fav time of the year! Glad you could give us a crafty update!

  9. Tick tock looking forward to seeing the carriage clocks and pattern. I like Kays idea of a Steampunk style hat with a clock. Then you could make the brim swivel to reveal a circular mini. Whadda ya think? Thanks for checking in. Happy Crafting.

  13. Love the mini in a box on the Graphic 45 website. Any chance there might be a pattern in the future?? Although I suppose I could make it based on the measurements you gave but a pattern sure would make it easier - pretty please!

  14. Love the hat. I actually thought you'd made it until I read the blog. Now I've got to find your Youtube channel.

  15. I see the brim as the base of a diorama. A fence (rim of the box) to secure the top of the hat (lid). A round mini secured inside the top of the hat? Can't wait to see the clocks Jim.
