My sister had her birthday a while ago. Since she is a person, who already has everything (like most people nowadays) it's hard to come up with a good idea what to give her as a present. A lot of people in my family solve this dilemma by not giving presents at all. I don't like this solution though. Giving presents is a wonderful thing, I think. Getting presents, too.
I wanted to give her something special. So I bought a little cute statue made of plaster. I painted it and then sent to my sister. The paint job took hours, because I was extra-careful. When the little statue was all painted, I lacquered it in the stairway at my old place. Took a while before the lacquer stain on the floor was rubbed off again by my neighbours' feet. Tee-hee.
Here it is!
When I was really done, I loved it. My sister liked it, too.
Somehow I thought, I should do this more often. Painting things is so much fun! But where would I put all these things?
