So are you ready for this awesomeness? My friends at Studio 5 emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would be up for a challenge. You know I couldn’t turn it down right?
What was the challenge?
I spent the next week and 1/2 brainstorming about what I could do with freakin gumdrops.
In my mind I pictured this super cool textured piece of ombre art.
After 6 hours of gluing, painting and repainting this is how it ended up.
Now. I am going to put up a disclaimer. IF I had started this project with more time I possibly could have made it work. And I spent $30 on gumdrops so…we’ll see what happens, maybe I will be able to salvage it. If I get inspired. Or not. My MIL suggested that I should use it as a doormat. Hahahaha!
So with about an hour before my project was due I came up with a simple solution. I refinished a thrifted gumball machine.
Do you think I am lame? I know its not SUPER Mandilicious but I actually really love how cute it is. What do you think? (please be kind!)
And if you are in UT I am skyping the segment LIVE! (Channel 5 @ 11:00)
What would YOU have done?
Love Your Guts, Mandi
