    Queenie! Who knew you were so talented artistically!

    It's good to take off that crown and (faux) ermine robe on occasion and get your hands dirty --- literally.

    OMG I love the clock.

    It would be so fun to do!

    How do you do it? Where do you get the clock? Are there instructions?

    This would be the best present ever!!

    You MUST share!!! Tell me! I used to knit and make my kids dolls when we did Waldorf homeschool. We had such a blast..just really fun!

    I'd love to get creative again!

    The clock was super easy, I didn't have instructions, I just winged it.

    Step One - buy a clock. :) I got mine at Office Max for $12. I did not buy the kind where you can take out the hands, so I just worked around them.

    Pop off the plastic cover
    Measure the face
    Cut your paper to the right size
    Cut a slit up the middle to slide around the mechanism
    Punch some sort of hole in the paper to accommodate said mechanism
    Glue paper to clock
    Take embellishments and pictures and place them where you want them
    Glue down embellishments and pictures
    Make sure that nothing sticks up and blocks the hands!!
    Put cover back on

    Wallah! Clock!

    Nah, I live in SoCal.

    My sister who just had a baby lives in SF. I love the idea of being able to multi-task a trip!

    I seriously love the creativeness. I always wished I was more creative.
