I can't believe I decided to bend these keys to turn them into hooks. I thought bending the spoons was difficult. Bending those keys was even worse. Add to that the fact I broke three of them before they ever bent past the first bend.
Another reason I wanted to play with them was to see how difficult it would be to stamp words or letters on them. After all, I'm not really skilled at that sort of thing. And it's easier stamping on keys than spoons with rounded and oval bowls.
You can see I did a lousy job on the first one. I can barely make out the word "be."
I needed to give both my hands and my attitude a rest, so I took a walk through my flower bed. The irises have begun to bloom
just as the last of the tulips are dying out. Can you see the one red tulip that is barely clinging to life? At first, I thought it was a leaf.
Of course, I had more irises that were in various stages of bloom, so they will be around for quite some time, I hope. And because they are extremely "juicy," they don't press well, but they pound well. I hope to find time to pound a few of them after my 22 days of recycling are over.
But now it was time to get back to work. And work it was, too. My second key was marginally better. At least you can read the "OK."
Two more of these keys and I was ready to call them finished. And I could finally read the words "FUN" and "JOY."
So it's time to be OK,
For Day 20 of 22, I bent 8 keys, but three broke, leaving 5 I turned into hooks. Of those, I used my metal stamps and wrote fun, inspirational words on 4. Thank you for joining me, because your comments and visits have meant the world to me.
I'll be back later today with my T Stands For Tuesday post, which will count as Day 21. Gosh, I'm nearly another year wiser!
