am dogsitting this week away from home. it is amazing what ya can do for entertainment when you do not have all your normal junk of your own home around you  for distraction. This is Sadie, an old girl who was a bit unnerved that I was staring at her for so long.   

  I turned to my Etch A Sketch endlessly for fun and solace as a child.  This is still my original unit. The knobs no longer turn very well.

Wow, that's pretty impressive control/detail, especially if the knobs don't work perfectly anymore!  I'm lucky if I can draw a straight line on an Etch-a-Sketch!  Tongue

I don't remember what you have to do, but I can recall reading that there's a way to permanently "fix" Etch-a-Sketch images if you want to keep them as permanent pieces of art.  I think I've got a book lying around somewhere where a guy did nothing but Etch-a-Sketch animal portraits.

You are too much!!!!  It is an amazing rendition of her, tho!

I remember I always wanted to break mine as a child, b/c I wanted to see how it worked! Roll Eyes

It's possible to see how one works without breaking it if you "color" the whole screen, which allows you to see the mechanism inside, but that takes some serious time/effort to do!

Patraw, now that you say that, I did try that a few times as a kid. But I never had the patience to get enough of it done to see!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
