What happens when you find…

a camera and some nutpicks at a garage sale?


I saw the camera it had a sticky piece of masking tape with a black felt pen marking for $1.00! The nut picks were sitting in a row at another garage sale. I don’t know why, but I visualized this camera as Frank.  I pictured Frank having a hard time with the ladies and he decided he needed to do something to impress them….but what?  Cameras photograph.  Frank could have a photographic memory!

I attached nut picks with 20 gauge annealed wire representing hands and legs. After printing out a clip art face, I hot glued a flat glass marble to the face for his head. A free form glitter paper crown adorns the top of his head.  Lastly I printed “Frank tried to impress the ladies with his photographic memory” in 12 font. The strips are attached with a thin layer of hot glue.

I can hardly wait for the next garage sale.  I looked in the paper and there is one for 10:00am tomorrow.  ATM here I come!
