Last night we were at my mother’s house and my daughter brought her this VHS tape to play. I think (hope) my daughter thought it was a movie and did not realize it was actually the instructions to my parents’ new washer and dryer.
My mother told Shelby she could bring it home to watch. I said I didn’t want it, I don’t even have a VCR.
That’s when my mom made her fatal mistake. She said, “Take it and glitter it or something.” So I did. Boy, did I ever.
Yes, that is my mom dressed as a mermaid – complete with a puka shell bikini top. The black things on the front are a school of fish that I fashioned out of the video tape. The box it all sits on is the VHS cassette tape (or whatever that’s called).
I think I’m going to call it “Mixed Media Collage” and try to sell it on Etsy for $153.99. Free shipping, of course.
I wonder if this is a bad omen – WordPress will only let me upload one photo of this beautiful creation. Hmmmm…
