I just made this for the ManFlesh!  Similar themes could be used for many men's nemeses.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210006.msg2250561;topicseen#msg2250561

I also made this for a divorced friend who's ex-wife took most of the kitchen stuff. 
3902  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Varmint Voodoo Doll UPDATE: Packaging Photo Added! on: November 25, 2007 03:23:39 PM
So, the ManFlesh has a problem with squirrels.  They have gotten into his house - and not just the attic, but the house-house AND chewed up part of the lovely built-in in the dining room of his lovely 1914 house!  They've made a mess of his attic insulation and have been known to get the pets all riled up with all their scritch-scratching around.  So he loathes them, while at the same time would never hurt an animal.   So to help him vent a little, for Christmas he's getting his own Varmint Voodoo Doll: Squirrel Edition.

This is not the type of squirrel that we have around here, but it is a copyright-free image and I think that the pointy ears and claws make it look appropriately evil.  The red eye is a sequin sewn on for the same reason.

I made shrink plastic pins to go with it.  He's put up hardware cloth over attic vents to prevent their entry represented by the red/grid patterned pin.  There was also an incident when a squirrel was in the house being chased by his cat, followed by his sister's Malamut, followed by his Lab/Rottweiler mix, followed by him with a broom represented by the other pins..  No harm came to the squirrel, but it was "swept away" outside.

The back where I labeled it with a super fine Sharpie.  I wish I'd thought to include the label info on the squirrel side.

I just happen to have this black box and large labels, so I made this package.  I'll wrap it in wrapping paper, too, when I give it to him.

Thanks for looking!

Well, if you're aiming for next year why not a countdown from equinox to solstice?  Just kidding... oof.  Lips sealed

That's truly fantastic! How awesome that you've added to his holiday tradition, especially a charitable one.  I'm clicking "This Rocks" because YOU rock!
3905  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Winter Solstice "Advent" Calendar? on: November 24, 2007 02:42:22 PM
Why not count down a certain number of days regardless of when the solstice falls?  1 - 25 needn't corespond to the date, but to the number of days left until solstice, i.e. 4 weeks is 28 days so number them 28-1.

this yar my best friend ( and her fam , we have been friends since i can remember) our havig christmas eve together , as we alyas do , and it is a p.j. party , and as the men don't actually wear pjs , so i thought i would make them a matching pair , just i don't know if it should be a joke ( pink pj pants) or something parcticle , if so what kind of fabric ---also what kind of pattern??? ( i SUCK at making my own ) 

All the major pattern manufacturers have lounge pants patterns for both men and women.  I think practical, so they can wear them around the house on lazy weekend mornings even after the holidays.

And now your boxes are marvelous!  Nice work.   I'm afraid I don't have any wit to offer, but I can tell you that acrylic varnish ought to work just fine over dry acrylic paint.  You can get liquid to brush or roll and in a can to spray.

I didn't get to read the entire thread, so this may be a repeated suggestion.  When I saw that pile of them I immediately thought of the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz.  Those things still scare me.

So cute! I'm pretty sure I had a friend with sheets like that Raggedy Ann and Andy pattern when I was a kid.  Great fun!

I'm with aliceownsj00!  When I saw the thumbnail, I thought "what's that wooden rubik's cube?" [click]  That's so awesome that you tackled a new medium on a not-at-all-simple project!  Wood work is good fun and so much easier with access to a woodshop!  And colored?  No way.
