This is my entry, and first revamped clock! I bought a small wind up clock from Wal-Mart; it's about 5" across the widest point. I think it looks a little like a side view mirror on an old car. Smiley  The woman, her dress, and her hair are magazine/catalog pieces. The 'hem' of the dress is torn like that on purpose. Wink  The two numbers and the fan are stickers. The background I made in Word and printed on regular paper. The clock works, but it ticks audibly, which makes me feel like there's a neverending egg timer on. Tongue  So I probably won't be using it.... Hope you guys like it! As always, comments rock! Grin

This looks fun to do! Your stickers blend really well with your chosen image.
I can't use a loud clock either.

Nice! I don't know if you ever watched "Daria", but the first thing that came to mind seeing this was: "The lady, or the tiger: now you don't have to choose!"

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Thanks! And yeah, I've seen that episode! I thought about naming it something like that, but it was just too long. Smiley

Thanks to you both! And no, I haven't heard of The Apple Tree. I have heard of Kristin Chenoweth--can't remember where though, so I'm off to look her up. Smiley

The Apple Tree is a three act musical currently being revived on Broadway (though there is only a week or so left to the run). Each act is based on a different short story all connected with the themes of temptation and the relationship between man and woman. "Lady or the Tiger" is the second act with Adam and Eve preceeding it and Passionella (a 50s/60s version of Cinderella) following.

Kristin Chenoweth (who originated the role of Glinda in Wicked and can be seen also in RV, Running with Scissors, and Stranger than Fiction on the big screen and The West Wing and Sesame Street on the little) plays the roles of Eve, Princess Barbara and Ella/Passionella in each act. She's costared with Brian D'arcy James and Marc Kudisch. The original production stared Barbara Cook and Alan Alda.
