Busy Busy Busy!

Oh Lordy...what have I gotten myself into? If you check out my last post, you'll see what I'm talking about. That is the tip of the iceberg. son came home that day and really freaked out that I was "hand-making" Valentine's for my daughter and not him. He wanted some too! So, I grabbed a glass of vino, and put on my creative cap.
After a visit to Gibson Guitars online (, I had an idea. Here's the step by step in pictures to make a cool guitar Valentine for the boy who doesn't want frilly, girly, or flower Valentines.
First, go to Gibson's website. If you have a shitty computer like me, ask your husband who works in advertising (or a friend or go to Kinko's....) to print out a guitar and increase the sizing of the image/guitar to approx. 6 inches or more. They should look like this...

Sorry for the lighting. It sucks.

Then, cut off the necks of the guitars, cut around the guitar, and put two notches on the string holders. You will then stick the Blow Pop in the holes, and the final result should look like this.

25 Flower Blow Pops, 25 Gibson Guitars. What the Halibut (credit: Shark Tale) was I thinking. Oh, and just in case you were wondering - that red Gibson? Yeah, it retails for $8,000.
P.S. Too funny. I just posted this and noticed the glass of red vino next to my stuff - how typical.
