creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Am I working or playing??

dress-o-maticI purchased this Adjust-O-Matic dress form at my local thrift store several month ago for $5, brand new in the box.  I was thrilled but I wasn’t very excited about the idea of putting it together.

30-45 minutes!?!?30-45 minutes, huh?  Well, OK then.  After spending 1 1/2 hours the 1st setting – I let it sit again.  Yesterday as I was looking at my 10×10 EZ-UP tent in my living room trying to gain some inspiration, I kept looking at the 3+ foot pole that was sticking up in the middle & I knew that I would need to come up with a fun idea to camouflage that.  My mind quickly went to the dress form.  It seemed perfect, especially because it is weight-less (anything 34-24-34 would be).   One thing led to another and, so far, this is what I’ve come up with.

Miss Charming!

  2. I never know what will show up in your living room. My (old) house must be having nightmares. This is very cute – hope it works out to be a winner. It definitely should attract attention to your booth.
