“Oh, the cleverness of me!”

Success in the studio. Yup…feeling smug-like.

I’m all for the value of learning new things through repeated trial and error, but nothing quite tops solving a manufacturing problem on the first go.

If materials could talk, the conversation would have went like this:

  MATERIALS: Eff you, creative nemesis!
    I refuse to bend to your will!
  ME: You WILL bend!
When you’re slapped you’ll take it and like it!
[Smack! Smack-smack!]
  MATERIALS: Shut-up – you had me at “hello”.
  [Passionate embrace, cue music, fade to black]

I’ve reverse engineered and taken a pattern from a Chinese take-out container. My version is made out of 10 mil Clearlay:

take out

I’ve taken the packaging manufacturer’s label and modified it for the signature/title on the pieces:

Take Out Label

Yeah, baby – I AM all that.

I’ve had to make my bed “like a mountain range with a snow white pillow for my big fat head.”

Don’t worry – I’m sure the swelling will subside when I’m confronted by a new studio problem tomorrow.

    You are amazing, as ever. Though the title of this post makes me think maybe Elvis did it all and you’re just taking credit 😉
