For those who cannot read the small little sentiment: "You can't be friends with a squirrel, a squirrel is just a rat in a cuter outfit...Sarah Jessica ParkerOver at The Order of the Opus Gluei this week's challenge #72 is EASE(L) INTO FALL.
This isn't the greatest picture in the world, but you have to understand, we haven't seen the sun here for oh, say, like maybe a month? OK, perhaps that's a tad melodramatic. But it's been A LONG TIME! And it ain't easy to get a decent picture when there is no sun.
Where I work, we have squirrels. Big, ugly, aggressive, in your face squirrels. Some dufus bought some peanuts once and now we have to buy peanuts for the little cretins ALL THE TIME or they hiss at us. And call us names. True story.
Anyways, you can click on the picture to read the sentiment. It pretty much says it all for me. Our challenge was to create something fall-ish and possibly use an easel while we're at it. I was going to make something little and autumny, cus I have tons and tons or autumny stuff, cus I LOVE atutumn, but when I dug for my little easel in the easel drawer (OK, I don't really have an easel drawer), I found a big easel that I forgot I had and well, the rest is history. It's my ODE to a SQUIRREL. Nasty little buggers.
You have five more days to take part in this challenge over at the Order of the Opus Gluei, so hurry over there. Well, the actual truth is that you can play with them at any time, they don't have any rules over there. Why, if in the dead of winter, you have an overwhelming urge to make something fall-ish and wave it near an easel, go for it! They'll be happy. And so will you!
