1  Finish what you start... in CHALLENGE 35 ENTRIES by gayepaula on: February 05, 2009 04:07:24 AM
As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I could come up with a visual motivator to stop me starting projects then abandoning them half way for the next exciting thing!

I purloined some old plastic gravy jars from my mum (who keeps everything!), helped myself to my hubbie's drill and a wooden pole, and got some pretty thread to hold everythig together.... et voila!


The idea is to put a marble in the left hand jar for every project I start, then put one in the right hand jar for everything I finish! I wanted to go and buy marbles, but we've been snowed in so I couldn't get to the shops.

When I told a friend about the project, she immediately laughed and asked if making the scales counted as a project. Of course it should! As I don't have marbles yet, I put in some ink pads to illustrate and keep track until the roads are clear enough to go on a marble buying mission.



If you look closely at the second photo, you can see that the last 'T' is upside down! I only noticed when I was about to take pics, and it was 11.30 on a work night, so I decided that fixing it could wait for another time!

Thanks for looking, this is my first posted creation, although I am a long-time lurker and admirer.
