Something I Made

something I made - Photo a Day, May

This incredibly beautiful, positively artistic creation was made by yours truly when I was in primary school, most likely grade 3 or 4. I have got absolutely no recollection of what they are called but the idea of them is to:
  • cut a mini yogurt tub in half
  • fill half with newspaper
  • write a wish on a piece of paper
  • place it inside
  • fill the remaining half with newspaper
  • masking tape the entire body, top to bottom
  • paint and draw a design, front and back - making sure to only colour in one eye of your creation
  • when your wish comes true, colour in the other eye

As you can see, only one of my eyes remain coloured.

When I rediscovered this divine piece of artistic genius a few years ago at Mum and Dad's house, I could not for the life of me remember what my wish was, so curiousity got the better of me. I know that sharing wishes with others usually renders them unachievable, but I think that was destined to happen from the moment I put pen to paper {most likely very soon after I'd received my pen 'licence'!}

don't you just love the spelling of a 9 year old!

Tristan Banks, the love of my life, otherwise known as 'Tug' from Home and Away...

Tug, the swoon-worthy bad boy

Needless to say, I feel the other eye will remain uncoloured forever!

But that's okay, I've come to terms with it.

After all, Tristan has been replaced...

Si: doubly swoon-worthy, not-so-much a bad boy
