All right..........This has been my Mount Everest for the past week! I may have negected my usual duties lately.........so what, right? So no one in the house has clean clothes, or home cooked meals! Deal with it! I've been preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'busy....annnnnnnnnnnnnndddddddddd') (curtain opens.......)

This is my itty bitty bead maze


This is my crafting hand



Beside his big brother "regular sized bead maze"


preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'mmmmmmmmmm........beer.')


Princess Starsondress gives it a test drive


The itty bitty proof!


The play-room army waiting for the magic to happen


I used the wire from a memo pad, some sculpty, and some glass beads to make a little tiny copy of my son's classic bead maze. Every time I look at it I think of a little tiny doctors office (Hey, let's do that for the next challenge) Wink

I had too much fun with this! I cant wait for the next one.

Now I will return to my motherly duties Tongue

WOW!  So cute!  I was laughing out loud (sorry, LOL) and my hubby came over to see.  When he read the top of the thread (about not cooking, etc.) he said "that sounds familiar!"  Too bad my crafting hasn't been for this project.  But, NOW I am inspired!  So much for going to bed now, I have to CRAFT my own!  

P.S. My mother-in-law got some tacky Barbie knock-offs at the $ store for my daughter...a man and woman dressed as Dr. and nurse!  I hate Barbies, do you need them for your "office"?  Tongue

Very nice, whenever I see those toys I think of a Dr's office too  Cheesy

I couldn't believe how small it was until the shot of it in your hand and then the one with the ruler. 
Holy crap! (that's my  new catch phrase for this challenge)

Great Job!

Ya, it is! The picture is a bit deceiving. My hand-me-down camera is kick ass, so it takes great close-ups. It's kinda hard to tell how really small it is.

HAHA! Thats funny! Cheesy

Asked my hubby to help me think of a good name for my entry. He says "The aMAZing bead maze!". I say "preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'Ummmmmmmm.........that')'s bad."

Needless to say, that was his only contribution.

I give my son the credit for that. We were looking around his playroom for something to make mini. The bead maze was his idea. After I made it, he asked to play with it.........I said no  Sad
