The Things I get Myself Into!

Meet Stanley. He’s not a very well rounded individual. His personality is a little flat and if you were to analyze his persona you would probably decide that he is very much a two-dimensional character. At the beginning of Thankgiving weekend, I received a text asking if I could turn a jacket into a person for a church drama production. I didn’t have a handy excuse to get me out of the project, and the person sending the text sounded a little desperate, so I agree to tackle the project. After some discussion and a lot head scratching I dug into the pile of cardboard in my garage waiting to be recycled. A couple of hours of cutting and gluing, stitching and adjusting I was able to come up with a workable solution. Flat Stanley has been in the spotlight three times now, waltzing around on stage during a musical number. The audience has greeted his appearance with lots of laughter, which seems to have gone to his head. He’d like to be a stand-up comedian, but he’s not ready to support himself. I guess he’ll have to stick with a sit-down position for the time being. Sometimes my life seems to head down some very strange rabbit trails!

You are so artistic! At first glance I thought that Stanley was sitting in my house, I have that exact same maple rocking chair-a favorite that my husband gave to me a couple of months before we married. Stanley has your sense of humour, but he looks more like the milkman......
