I spent my day today trying to put together a tutorial for making icicle ornaments. This is a project my mother and I did every year for almost a decade. I was absolutely positive that I remembered how to do everything.
But, the plexiglass I bought was too thin.
I set the temperature for the stove too low.
Then I set it too high.
Then the new plexiglass won't cut.
Then . . .
Well, you can see the problem. So, I took a step back, watched a cartoon with my son and put the project away.
I also sent an e-mail to my mom. She thinks the problem was that I was doing it by myself while trying to watch two kids.
We're going to make them this weekend.
