Crafting Christmas the Guy's Way

Christmas was nice this year. A lot of handmade gifts were passed around our family. Sierra made a Grinch worthy Who feast out of Sculpey. Marina was knitting socks for her sister and superhero Deadpool for her brother. These things I will post later in the week. Today I wanted to focus on Chase's crafts.

Chase is more reserved and quiet than his sisters. Most of his art is done in the wee hours of the night. Sometimes he is sketching ideas or pictures, but usually his artwork involves duct tape. We can usually hear the tape being pulled and ripped in the dark of night. His crafts blew me away this year. He used the tape to make sculptures! Who knew how endless the possibilities were with this simple tape?





Chase made Sierra her very own dragon.

Marina got a model of her League of Legends character, with an extra pair of glasses she could wear!
 He made a beautiful lotus flower for me.


For his father, he made another video game character based on the Egyptian God Anubis. Click on any of the pictures to see a larger image.

Wow! I had no idea that was possible with duct tape!

That's so impressive, and all from something as simple as duct tape. Of course, you need the artistic flair too. Chase should consider marketing the LOL figures. I know from having that game played endlessly around here, there are many to choose from.

Way to go, Chase!!!!

My word verification was derphi. A perfect name for a sidekick. Just sayin'

Comfy:Derphi is a wonderful word. I love the things word verification comes up with!
Paula:You're family is into LOL as well? These games have created such a small world!
Kez:The duct tape possibilities are endless!

Very cute. :)

Hey, about League of Legends, yes, especially Logan and Andrew. In fact, Logan tells me his world ranking is 1281 at the moment. I like the idea of something like LOL making the world feel more like a family.

Chase is creative! Very cool gifts.

And the creations are even more awesome in person! All of you are so blessed with talent just oozing out in all shapes and forms and duct tape! Love, Mom
