ok so one day i decided hey why not take a crack at doing this challenge?  well i thought ooooooooo ahhhhhhhhh sparkles, silver wire, dangles, yay! hooray for prettyness!  BUt then when i went to the store that i knew had the right beads, they had moved!!!! (oh the horror!)

  So then on the ride back to my house with my brother we passed a staples, and i said "well i could try something with paperclips" (i was joking). then he was asking questions about the challenge and craftster and (after me saying a lot of craftster is revamping, recylcing and reconing plus using things in different fashions than intended) said "recycle! oh well, we just passed staples, do the paperclip idea". i said "well..... um... sure?!?!?!?!". I had no idea what i had gotten myself into........

 I went in alone, with like fourteen dollars and a wierd sense that my ideas were going to be thwarted and i would have wasted 14 dollars.  well i walked out with a pack of 1000 paperclips, cool colors by the way, and a pack of 5 rolls of electrical tape, red, blue, green, yellow, and white.

  so after maybe only three or four hours, all in front of the tv and some realy hard glue of paperclips on the base i cam up with this!

the annoying paperclips on the base took me like 7-10 minutes each or something.... i like the way they look though

ACTION SHOT!!!!!!! ACTION SHOT!!!!!!! ACTION SHOT!!!!!!turn your computer... or your head

i hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i worked hard and this is my first craftster worthy post ever!

By the way (sorry i forgot to add this earlier!) I am the queen of spontaneity (and reusing things in wierd ways!)!

I really love the us of something out of its place-that is who would think of a crown from paper clips? Why the Queen of Paper Clips of course!!
