Yes, it's good to have a hobbyist mate who can sort of relate. My boy is a woodworker, and a flyfisher who ties his own flies. If you want a hobby that rivals crafting in supplies needed, flyfishing is an excellent choice!

Unfortunately, Greg has expensive hobbies...he built a home theater, a MAME cabinet (its an old school looking arcade game that he built from scratch that has something like 3000 video games on it) and now he's rebuilding a 1963 Nova...makes my little shrines pale by comparison.

i love that the other one is made from popsicle sticks and noodles and pipe cleaners. i would never have thought that those products could turn out something awesome.

ROFL!!! I was going to do a shrine for it, but I breifly lost my crafting mojo. I'm glad I didn't enter. Cheesy

Ok, ok. I know, I initially rejected the invite to this craftalong (b/c I briefly convinced myself to work on one thing at a time - yeah right), but after seeing Devil Doll's Man's Ruin shrine in the kitschy challenge....I finally know what to do with those martini glasses my sister bought me! So last night I tore through the apartment and gathered all the doodads I save "just in case." So if it's ok that I join the fun late, I would like to make a shrine to the ridiculousness that I collect!

*Plus I'm excited as always to see what you all come up with...Go shriners!

YA!  I bought some wooden dresser(?) at Michaels for 50 cents each yesterday!!  I decided to do a shrine for my late father--gathering up mementos and hoping for some guidance here--guess I need to prime the wood first then paint...

are we posting work-in-progress or just finished ones?

In my opinion, post any pics you want of your shrine!

Good for you on making the shrine to your father. I've been trying to get myself to do one in honor of my mom, but haven't been able to work myself up to it yet. You would think after almost 20 years it would be easier than it is.

What kind of guidance are you looking for?

anyone is welcome at any time, there isn't any specific start or stop date.

and post pics!

as for priming, i'm lazy and the wood i get is usually pale, so a couple coats of paint do it. does anyone else have an opinion on priming?
