Fun Stuff: June 2006 Archives

Actually I finished two nights ago. But it took a day and a half to upload via my adsl link (the cd I had couldn't be read by my server). So at very long last, I've finally uploaded indexes to my USA photos of 2004 - two years almost to the day since I got back.

Have a look here - http://conspiracy.cia.com.au/Holidays/2004_USA/ .. enjoy!! (finally!!!)

Just for fun

Origami

| | Comments (1)

Two nights ago, after inspiration from Dave, I built my third Jackstone. This time I built it fairly quickly, passing all the frustrating bits without too much frustration. Although really I think I rushed it a bit. The folding isn't that great. And tragically, my original one is in better shape - the one that spent ten years in the bottom of a drawer .. !

The one on the left is my original, the one in the middle is the horror I made a couple of years ago, and the one on the right is the one I made poorly the other night..

And then we have some of the little models Dave made for me..

A very cute griffin -
