I’ve been pretty busy this week being ‘crafty’…..making plaques/wall hangings.

Flower Pink Plaque - IMGP7656

My son had a school business project to do and being a typical teenager, he left it until the last-minute to start working on it. It appears that a few weeks back (it could be months back, knowing my son) he was given instructions to set up a company, put together a business plan, design, make or indeed outsource the making of a product that he then had to sell. He came up with the idea of making plaques as he’d done this before, last year, at a previous school. Unfortunately, he never got on with it and found himself swamped with work that actually goes towards his leaving cert results, which this particular business project doesn’t.

Anyway, he ‘outsourced’ the making of these plaques to you know who! So that’s what I’ve done this week. I won’t have time to sell them, so it looks like I’ll be sticking a few euro in an envelope for him to hand into school and then be giving the plaques away to friends and relatives. If nothing else, it’s been a great experience at doing something I’ve not tried before.

I’ll pop up the images of the finished plaques and as I do more I’ll try to remember to take some pics of the entire process, from beginning to end. I was so intent on getting some done, I forgot to do that. Ooops..sorry!

Hope you like them.

  1. I, on the other hand, found these plaques so disconcertingly gay I felt the testosterone leaking from every pore as I viewed them. At one point I swear I began to grow a more than passable pair of female breasts!
    Having said that they are beautifully made and as Samantha points out should be sold to the great unwashed for pecuniary gain.
    Great job Touch!

  2. Hahaha! So how many shall I send you, Mr SOZ? Anything in particular take your eye? Maybe I should make you some personalised plaques featuring a few of your very colourful SOZ characters….what do you think?

  3. Hahaha You’re known as the ‘Job’ of the ‘satire world’ my friend. Your suffering is great, but one day you’ll receive your just desserts in heaven, where Momus will take you under his wing and tickle your funny bone for all eternity.

  4. I had to smile at your post at first being reminding of the times my son was always at last minute on projects…he is a high school teacher now…so there is hope in the hard work parents model and in encouragement:) Your plaques are just amazing!! They would sell very well all over the world, really!! I have chosen a few already 😀

    • Hahaha! Teenage boys are devils for being last minute at everything, that’s for sure.

      I’m meant to be making more of the plaques, but to take more time on them and buy better quality trimmings etc, maybe then I’ll try selling them…I don’t know. These were made using what we had in the house, bar a few bits of ribbon. We reclaimed the MDF, had lots of paint samples around the house and had lots of the ribbon already. They’re just sitting in the gym now.

      Thank you for stopping by, it’s great to have feedback.
