Miracles on a refridge.

For Christmas I used my scroll saw to make some dinosaur magnets for Mallory.  She really likes dinosaurs and doesn’t seem to have anything serious against magnets, so I figured it was a “good idea”.

I drew them and cut them out and painted them with speckles.  I really like the look of speckled paint.  I applied too much paint too quickly so some of the dinosaurs have a pebbly texture.  This worked out because it made them look like they had rough reptilian skin.  Huzzah!

Check it out, they work!  Mallory’s photograph is being held up by powers that defy gravity.  Amazing, right?

Here is a fun fact: the speech bubble magnet didn’t always say “WHAT”.  It originally had printed on it another four letter word but then I decided it wouldn’t be prudent to leave it as it was.  I’ll bet you can’t guess what it used to say.

    Is it awful that I was thinking it was the other four letter word for poop? One thing is for sure, Joshua likes feces.

    One thing is for sure, everybody seems to think that Joshua is mad into feces. Seriously, that doesn’t make any sense.

    Also, you’re all wrong. Mmm. How do you like the taste of THEM apples?

    I think rawr is what it should have been. Good job. But I don’t see why you would need to change it. This just doesn’t make sense to me.
